    Detailing Thread for G30/31

    No problem, glad to help. It is Bluestone; it does seem to change hue depending on the light conditions. Don't worry, it will be worth the wait

    Yeah, VW as well (IIRC that is actually called Guard X) - the stuff in the pouch is unusable ..................

    Detailing Thread for G30/31

    Hi there. I asked the same question myself a few months ago! General consensus seemed to the BMW product (Protect X) isn't as good as aftermarket products and, for me, was too expensive. I ended up going for a product called Max Protect UNC-R (you can google it for more detail - excuse pun) which was applied by a "proper" professional detailer. It cost £450 for the full treatment compared the £599 BMW wanted for their product.

    Cheers, I'll have to chase up the ConnectedDrive people as I'm only getting the option of setting the region for OTA updates there ...............

    Auto map update

    I've got 2019-1 OTA for GB/Eire (base map is 2018-4). Any advice on updating for other regions (we travel in Europe quite a bit especially Netherlands, Germany and Austria)? Is there anyway of updating the base map i.e. for the whole of Europe?

    2019-2 Maps available on Upload Manager

    Cheers - just tried that but I only get an option of "Automatic Update" (which only allows me to set aforementioned "Preferred Region"); no option for Manual Update????

    2019-2 Maps available on Upload Manager

    Noob questions here: How do I update my maps via USB (no indication in manual of how to download to USB and BMW Connected HUB doesn't offer this option)? How do I update maps for mainland Europe (BMW Connected Hub seems to say updates are for only one "preferred" Region)?
