Updating the Sat nav-beginner!

Hi guys,
so hopefully this week i am off to buy a 2004 mini convertible which, amongst other features, has a sat nav inbuilt.
I know very little about cars, but i have heard updating these can be very expensive. Could someone give me a guide on how to update my mini sat nav and firmware to the latest version? Any help is most appreciated as always!

If you google it you'll find companies who sell back up copies of your original update disc for 30. They usually include a firmware update disc.

I did this and it took me 10 mins, the update loads itself and the DVD update is as easy as swapping discs over.
