R56 2007 Integrated Sat Nav - Firmware Upgrade

Hi,

I have recently purchased a 57 plate Cooper S with an integrated Sat Nav system.

I am looking to make a Firmware upgrade of the Sat Nav System to bring the visuals up to the latest version (I believe its V.32). I have spoken with my Mini Dealership who got all confused what "firmware" meant so I knew it was a lost cause continuing to question them.

Could anyone help me find out more information on:

1. What would the firmware upgrade offer?

2. How can I install the firmware upgrade?

3. Where is the cheapest place to buy the latest 2012 Maps DVD?

Many thanks
Mark

Hello Mark

Did you have any joy with this? I'm picking up a 58 plate JCW this saturday and I know that it's got a '08 navigation disk in it. I'd be keen to upgrade the firmware and then purchase a '12/'13 navigation dvd.

Be keen to hear how you got on.
All the best, Nick

As a follow up, I've just bought an upgrade pack from satnavupgrades.co.uk
Will post my experience as I get the disk and try the upgrade.

Map DVD arrived next working day from satnavupgrades.co.uk

All loaded and working fine - no problem and fantastic value!

Recommended if you want to update your navigation disk.
