Question about the map on the Livecockpit

So I came across a pic my friend posted on social media, who's traveling in Europe. In the pic, she's driving a new 3 series. And as you can see, the small map on the dashboard has a lot more details compare to mine. Does anyone know is this is due to the EU/US version difference, or is there anywhere in the settings I can make the change? The one my friend was driving seemed pretty basic as mine (2019 330i)

The July 7.2019.39 update increased the detail in the live cockpit maps. Installed idrive software could be the difference.

It'll stay like that until OTA updates are live. For now you need to go to the dealer and hope they will do the upgrade for you.

Mine is much more detail-rich than the first batch of cars

Just downloading 26Gb of Maps

I saw from the online connected BMW website that I could download the latest map. Europe Live 2019-4... It's just over 26Gb. It didn't show as an option in the car which has the latest software loaded.

You need to download it to your pc, copy it to a USB drive and then you can update the car... I'll confirm when I've done it

This is for the navigation only, not iDrive, which you still don't need to do because that updates OTA automatically.

You need to go to the dealer to update your iDrive version, like others have already said in this thread already.

My OTA navy upgrades is showing nothing so I’ve downloaded the latest map upgrade from ‘connected drive’ and plan to install in the car tomorrow.

I have the 07.2019.38 and it’s like in the second pic. So I guess I need the 39 or higher to get a more detailed view?

Maybe you need 07/2019.55. I'm on that version and my map looks like the first pic.

Ah gotcha. Since my car doesn’t have any issues, I guess I’ll just have to wait for the first service to take it in and ask them to do an update if they can.
