Sorry to ask but was is Torrent? I clicked on the attached file from previous post it downloads a 300Ko file and if I unzip it nothing happens. Maybe isn't compatible with MAC?

The zip file has a torrent link. The link works with an app or software to download the data from other users that have the actual files. Mac has torrent "software". I do everything on my android phone.

-Cleared folders like mentioned and had exact same folders as in the picture
-Plugged USB KEY in my F31 while engine running and nothing pups up, also tried in navigation mode still nothing.
I tried several times and hopeless LOL.
I'm not familiar with both MAC (OSX) or the F31.

1. Have you deleted the hidden files on the USB drive?

2. Do you have multiple USB ports in your car? Have you tried both?

Links that might help you.

For E-sys you donít need it to be activated with a token, thatís only used for coding, to generate the FCS file I just used E-sys, NOT E-sys Launcher like the first post says, this worked for me.

You must use the provide software to format the drive as FAT32, exFAT32 does not work.

I tried to move the zip file in to the FAT32 formatted 128gb stick and had an error Ďfile too largeí So had to unzip the files first and then move them over.

During the update the car would go into sleep mode and the update would stop, so I ran the engine for 45min-1hr for the update to complete,
I suspect you can drive around while its updating, but you just canít use the navi
Thanks for the info.

1. Edited 1st post & removed E-Sys Launcher.

2. FAT32 will not accept a file larger than 4GB.

3. You can buckle the driver side seatbelt. I always have a battery charger connected during map updates or coding. Don't recall the iDrive going to sleep.

1. Have you deleted the hidden files on the USB drive? YES only by installing it in my windows laptop I was able to see those files and delete them manually. Basically I just bought a new USB key, had it formatted FAT32 first with my MAC, and second alternative my windows laptop from there I would download map files from my MAC to the key and either way my car wouldn't recognize the update. So I followed your suggestions for hidden files on MAC which I thank you again but there where no hidden files showing up. After all I plugged the USB key in my laptop again to see files and wow I was finally able to see those hidden files which my MAC created by duplicating the map files when I had them downloaded. I'm sure theres a way with MAC somehow to not run into this problem, seems to be originally from the MAC download to the USB key. Like a mentioned USB key is new and had it formatted several times LOL.

2. Do you have multiple USB ports in your car? NOT in my F31 Have you tried both?

this is correct, it might have been exFAT32, I remember Windows 7 reported it as FAT32...maybe mixed this up

Looks like the download limit exceeded. Any other way? I can create another torrent and host it for everyone.

See if this works:
http://www.asavvyweb.com/windows/how...d-google-drive

I made changes to the original instructions from the website.

Step 1: Select the link with the file which you are trying to download.

- when the web page loads, login with your Google account

Step 2: Right click on file and select make a copy option.

Step 3: Now navigate to your google drive, My Drive folder and locate the file you want to download

Step 4: Right click on the file and click on download.

Step 5: Now your download will be started without any problem.

Step 6: When you finish downloading, delete the file from your My Drive folder then go to the trash & delete it forever.

Repeat steps above for the 2nd map link.

Lightbulb NBT Next vs NBT EVO

Hello,
I just bought a used bmw, with NBTEVO system. I can see the 2021-1 maps uploaded but they are for version next. Would I be able to install NEXT maps on NBT_EVO idrive6.

No, you will need the EVO map, as the Next one is for iDrive -4 in the initial NBT headunits.

This is fantastic, it worked perfectly. Thank you BadSeed!

One word of caution - the 2021-1 No longer fits on a 32GB drive. Despite variety of formatting options I kept getting an error that the drive was ~400MB too small. You need 64GB or bigger USB for this update.

2012 550i map update

can you tell me to how to update maps on 2012 f10. hu-cic

also interested in updating 2015 f83. hu-nbt

i have never done this before but do have e-sys and ista plus if needed

looks like the procedure is the first post in thread.

for the procedure to generate fsc code, it says select nbt on the the tool. should nbt be selected even if car has the older cic unit (i see cic is an option in the key gen tool as well).

not sure where to find the map files.

You need an ENET cable as well.

If you are generating the 1B file (CIC), the different setting in E-Sys is found here:
http://bmw-icom-a2-wifi.blogspot.com...-fsc-code.html
The rest of the instructions are in the 1st post.
Step 10 is different for your F83

I think you can skip selecting CIC or NBT from the FSC generator. Once I select browse & select the DE.fsc file, it automatically selects NBT.
Once you create a 1B.fsc file, it should select CIC automatically. I recommend generating a Lifetime code.

For the CIC map, honestly I would just Google search it. Different members from different forums will post a link when its available.
