How? We got sick and tired
of waiting for Navteq
to release new maps. So someone figured out that Phaeton uses the same Siemens unit used on BMW 7-series from way before Bimmer went HDD...
So, we've been using Bimmer "High" Version maps by Tele Atlas since 2008... if we were waiting for Navteq to release their "every 18 months" version, we'd still be stuck in 2006!
On the Touareg
, we run the latest maps available from Navteq, which we bought in September last year. Someone needs to figure out what other car systems use Blaupunkt, and go with that. Maybe there's a Bimmer that does? BMW used to use Navteq (I have Navteq for Bimmer disks for 2008 and 2009) but Bimmer dumped Navteq
for Tele Atlas. BMW has been pretty good about coming out with annual updates.
