Has anyone managed to update the map on the iX?
Hi. Where do you find the map updates and versions on the website?Evidently not, the map is out of date in the car as confirmed by the dealership but I have had no update prompts. It was only by chance that I looked on the website and it said there was a newer version. The download manager is terrible, it took multiple efforts over several days to download the update as the app kept crashing. Once downloaded and verified, transferred to a USB stick and put in the car. Nothing! Having to resort to going back to the dealership to get them to update the map.
Just read your comment about the download manager, what a strange solution, but useful to know, thank you.Once you have the map on the USB, its simple. Insert the USB in the central usb port of the car, a message will come up "There is a Map Update, would you like to install it?" click "Yes". Wait 20 minutes and its finished. Did that in january and it worked fine.
When it comes to the BMW Download Manager it kept crashing all the time. It got the following advice which worked for me (I am on a Macbook Pro):
- Open the Font Book (Applications → Font Book)
- Use: File-menu → Restore standard fonts → Proceed
Yes about a month ago need to do it on a pc via connected drive. You will need a usb-c 32gb drive. Takes about 4 hours to create the update just plug it in and it updates, no progress status but I got a message saying the plugged in drive didn’t have an updated version meaning it was updated !!Has anyone managed to update the map on the iX?
Tesla updates on-board maps every year, I believe, but as long as the car has a data connection the maps are live OTA and current as of that day (Tesla uses Google Maps). Stored maps are only used when there is no cellular or wifi data connection.Using a USB means you have ALL the changes for the region on a regular basis, how much does Tesla update and how often?
