FSC for Navigation map updates
FSC set for map update
From: $ 20
Updating your BMW navigation maps is essential if you want to drive safely. If your vehicle doesn’t have a valid subscription for navigation maps, you require a special code (FSC) in order to activate the map data.
Please note, you’ll have to upload proper map data for navigation system by yourself (we don’t provide map data).
This activation code is always a 20-position combination of
characters, which is usually entered manually via the iDrive controller.
The code only contains capital letters (A – Z) and digits (2 – 7).
The activation code does not contain the digits “0” and “1”
in order to prevent confusion with the letters “O” and “I”.
Each code is specially based on VIN for each single car.
The code can not use with multiple cars.
The car’s vehicle identification number (VIN) is the identifying code for a SPECIFIC automobile. The VIN serves as the car’s fingerprint, as no two vehicles in operation have the same VIN. A VIN is composed of 17 characters (digits and capital letters) that act as a unique identifier for the vehicle. A VIN displays the car’s unique features, specifications and manufacturer. The VIN can be used to track recalls, registrations, warranty claims, thefts and insurance coverage.
Your vehicle identification number is listed in several locations on your BMW. The most common places to check are:
- The inside frame/panel of your front door (usually driver’s side)
- On the dash near the windshield
- On your BMW’s insurance or registration
What do I need for the Map Data update?
- Make an order, specifying last 7 characters of car’s VIN*;

Where is the USB interface port in my car?
The USB interface port required for the map update can be found in
the glove compartment. If there be no USB interface port in the
glove compartment, please use the USB interface port in the center
console or in the storage compartment in the center armrest.
Will any data that has already been transferred be lost if I stop during the journey?
No. When you continue your journey after a stop, updating
automatically resumes (assuming the USB stick is still connected).
The update does not work!
Check for the following possible errors:
• If the vehicle identification number (VIN) on the BMW Navigation
Certificate (FSC) match the VIN of your vehicle?
(This can be found in your registration document)
• Did you avoid entering zeros and ones when typing in the
activation code? (Danger of confusion with “I” and “O”).
