  1. Hi all. Just a quick query. I've purchased a ctek mxs 5 battery charger. On my f10, am I OK to do the recon setting, or should I just stick to normal with agm? The reason I ask is because of the difference in voltage that the recon mode outputs. I read elsewhere about this mode not being suitable to the agm battery (that I'm assuming I have) Thanks in advance!
  2. When I first got my 2013 f10 a few years back, it still had very old maps on, so the first thing I did was update them using ones I purchased from bmw. After it had finished, my I drive was knackered. Constantly rebooting every 30 seconds. Took it to BMW, and they were useless. New head unit - £1.5k. I took it to a very good and recommended BMW local specialist. They fixed it by reinstalling everything (sorry I don't no more than that) and updating all firmware, software etc. It's been fine ever since. I've updated the maps every time a new one has been released and not had an issue.

    Creaking rear suspension?

    Apologies for dragging up this old thread. I'm sat in the garage now with a similar issue, creak coming from the rear, really noticeable over bumps etc. This rear load cover, easy to access to check?

    Ah I see, I think. So I install West maps, but I'll still have East major roads, just not East minor ones...?

    Roof bars/racks

    I've just checked the BMW product site for my motor and the one I need is about £180. The description says it can be combined with all bmw roof rack mounts.... Is this something sep I need to buy?

    So they've not just reduced the number of countries in the file, they've reduced the number of roads included within the countries too?

    IDrive Issue HELP !

    Hi mate. Well, when I first got the car, the maps were at 2013 and I wanted to update them, so I updated to 2018. This was the issue, apparently something changed in 2018 which my firmware couldn't handle. BMWMAN fixed it for me and earlier this year I updated to 2019-01 with no issue. Now I'm downloading 2019-02
  9. Hi there, Just downloaded the latest maps through the BMW Download Manager as part of my subscription and for this update I had to choose between West and East Europe, which I haven't had to do before. I downloaded 2019-1 earlier in the year and this was both I believe It looks like it now only requires 26.5 GB of space on a flash pen, rather than 50+ as it did before. Is this right? Before I apply it to my car just want to make sure I'm not going to knacker anything! I choose 'West Europe' by the way. Ta. Craig

    IDrive Issue HELP !

    I had the same issue after updating my maps. My issue was the first time BMWMAN had come across it and they sorted it for me, rather than replacing the whole thing.

    I'm very interested in this. This cable seems to have good reviews and I think it should work in my 2013 F10 yeah? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ENET-cable-suitable-for-BMW-F10-F20-F25-F15-F30-F01-F07-diagnostic-programming-/112075669336 Regarding the software, is this something I could get hold of please?

    Maybe so, either way they've looked after me and I can't say a bad word about them. I haven't had a bad experience ever at Nottingham Sytner, so I'll continue to use them rather than my local dealer.
