BMW Nuvi 715

#1 Post by tangbowei » Fri Apr 08, 2016 9:17 am

Hi there,

I am new to the website and am impressed by the information shared by the community.

I recently bought a used BMW car that comes with Nuvi 715. I have so far been unsuccessful in updating the map even with Garmin Express.

I was wondering if downloading the Malsing map manually and input into the SD card/Garmin will work?

Would be really thankful to some help please..

Get a new SD card and following the instructions. It should work.

Hi Wsian,

Thanks for this.

Is it mandatory to get a new SD card? Can I just update/change the map like how others do it?

Sorry one more thing: will downloading the map, and installing a new one work with the OEM system?

When it is named "nuvi", it will be compatible.

Thanks for this guys.

I already have a SD card that comes with it, and I have downloaded the map into the SD card.

Right now when I go to "Tools" --> "Settings" --> "Map Info", I see a checked MSM 2016 NT v7.46. Is this correct? But still I tried searching for some places like my new place (not existence 7 years ago) and it still doesn't show like 671635

Am I missing out something?

Postal Code is on on-going project .. updated as new postal codes are contributed

To search by Postal Code,

click on (POINTS OF INTEREST) / SPELL NAME / at the ENTER NAME column, type the postal code and that's it.

Thank you, SilverBeauty. It worked with the Postal Code.

I thought I had downloaded the latest Map, MSM v.7.46. But it seems there isn't new expressway like the KPE and my place which did not existing years ago, isn't there as well.

Not sure if I am indeed using the lastest map and its running correctly already?
