Navi Problems

So I bought a 2010 navigation DVD from this ad:
http://newyork.backpage.com/AutoPart...n-dvd/16444031
I have a 2008 135i and I popped it in the DVD drive. It said shut the system down and turn it on in 5 minutes. Did that, and tested it out for some different locations. So it seems like places that are close to my location work fine, but for further away locations it doesn't show the full route list! For example, I live in New York and if I put in a destination in New Jersey, it will tell me how to get to approximately the first highway I need to take and the route list will end there. I'm not sure if once I reach the last road it tells me to take it will then add more to the list? I haven't used to to go to a far destination yet but I know that it is supposed to show the full route list. Is something wrong with the DVD?

Sounds like you've paid $50 for a pirated version of the update DVD that BMW sold for $199. Tischer was out of stock last time I checked so I'm waiting for the 2011 update.

What did the vendor say when you complained?

I thought the same thing. I put in an address in Maryland, just to try it out, and after about 5 minutes of driving the rest of the route list appeared. So it looks like I should be fine. Unless I encounter any more problems with it, but so far so good. Thanks though.

The site only lists them for 1 series thru 2008. For all MYs after that, it says you need to get the update from a BMW dealer.

Correct. MY2008+ need VIN activation at the dealer as they are Hard Drive based.
