Maybe they have now they are using the online maps for newer i-step.

This was announced back in 2018: https://www.fleetnews.co.uk/news/man...bmw-group-cars

A little confusing as I'm not sure how they can provide online routes if they don't also provide the local maps.
The 2 nav systems definitely don't offer the same routes in my car, although I can see the traffic status updating within a few minutes of each other with the same data
