It is my understanding that over-the-air updates require an EVO head unit, whereas I have NBT. But nevertheless, my ConnectedDrive page shows me having free USB map updates for 3 years, and I have already successfully updated from 2015-2 to 2016-1. So I am reasonably confident that I should be able to get 2016-2, but I am not sure when or how.
Nick, I have my car going in for a Boot lock change next week, its a 2014 plate x3, so do you reckon I could ask them to do a FREE MAP update while it's in?

"Free Updates" are 1) Only for NBT2 EVO Head Units and 2) are delivered OTA as regional updates. Your 2014 car will not have EVO and if it did, these updates are not dealer installed. If you want to update it, you can do it yourself though.

I have free updates and I have an NBT head unit.

I am not sure from when free USB updates were include on UK spec pro nav cars. You can check on the Connected Drive portal - USB map updates will show as a booked service if you are eligible. If not, as Shawn says, you can get them updated with help from this forum.

Oh, right, I always think OTA Updates, and forget BMW now offers a Subscription via Portal too for older Head Units.

Have you a screen dump to show us? I have looked through all the services in my connected drive account and there is nothing in there that allows me to purchase it. Not that I would! I have everything except for:
Online Entertainment Voucher (no thanks)
Internet (no thanks).

Mine was a top spec ex BMW Managers car with many many extras that I purchased at the 10 month from new point. In fact all services are booked and paid for by BMW and expire on 24 December 2016.

I have tried to include a screenshot to this post. I believe that BMW UK announced that all Pro Nav cars would have free updates sometime during 2015 (to coincide with the F30 LCI). F25/F26 with NBT would be via USB, and those with NBT2 (comes with EBT option) would be OTA.

Thanks for that screen dump. I appreciate you taking the time to do it. I do not have the part about USB map updates. That is a recent addition and naturally released after my build.

I have no problem, because I have a source for FSC codes and links to another automotive site that regularly posts links for Bit Torrent BMW map updates to which I am at Europe NBT 2016-2.

Navigation system version is shown when you press the iDrive "Option" button whilst you have the navigation system in the main display.
