Road Map Update

The Road Map AUSTRALIA NEW ZEALAND EVO 2019-2 is now downloadable using BMW Download Manager (Windows or Mac). BMW Group update maps twice per year for Australia, and more for North America.

I recommend following these steps:
  1. Remove the existing (old) Download Manager software from your PC or Mac.
  2. Insert a clean Fat32 or exFat formatted 32Gb flash (thumb) drive in a USB slot on the PC or Mac. (This is where the map will be decompressed to and used in the BMW)
  3. Using your Web browser, visit and login.
  4. Click on the HOME tab.
  5. Go down the page to Map Update and click on Details.
  6. At the Map Update page click on Manual map update.
  7. Download the latest BMW Update Manager app for Windows or Mac.
  8. Run Download Manager on your Windows or Mac. Login and download the map update for your car. (4.17Gb Zip file) (BMW will also email you an Activation Code which you won't need, but indicates the update is tailored to your car only by way of its VIN).
  9. When the compressed file is downloaded, it will decompress to the 32Gb flash drive you nominate.
  10. When finished on your PC/Mac, insert the flash drive in your BMW's main USB port.
  11. Press the START button for the car (no brake pedal) and the map will update.
