The pricing of the map updates are a complete rip off, they are still set at a level when Sat-Nav first came out. When you can buy a standalone Tom Tom for that price and it includes free for life updates it puts it even more into perspective.
In this day and age BMW should be pushing maps updates FOC down to the car. Until then I'll continue to use the Send-to-Car function from the free fully updated Google Maps on my smart phone.
