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
