BMW GPS problem

Hi

I found you through Google, on one of the GPS forums….

Here is my problem, perhaps you can suggest a solution…

I have a BMW that I am taking to Europe, with a factory installed GPS system. My problem is that BMW USA does not sell European GPS maps. They only sell this in Europe. However, I am told that this will NOT work in my GPS system. Any suggestions? Navteq is the one making the DVD.

Thank you for your help.

Gabor

Hello Gabor.

The easy solution. Go on to ebay and buy european maps DVD from there.

Hello There.

Thats unfortunate but in the world of electronics from ebay it's not unusual. My suggestion would be to contact the seller and get them to replace the item or refund you.
If the seller is not helpful and you paid via paypal, then you have upto 60 days to make a claim as 'item not as dscribed' to get your money back or a replacement.

If my answer has solved your problem, please rate me on fixya.

Thank you

Hi Conrad:
I've found that there are usually a lot of firearms enthusiasts out there who love to get into forums where they do all they can to help people with similar weapons.
My suggestion is that you use GOOGLE to search for the Make, model, calibre, and "forum".
Hope this helps.

Where is GPS power connection on 2007 BMW R1200 RT? I have mount for Garmin Zumo 550. I understand there is a power connector somewhere near the ignition switch, but I can't locate it..


Hi, Dmercier for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. For more information about your issue please visit the website below. Good luck and have a nice day.
