The dealer actually told my father it all gets updated OTA (now I know that's wrong!) but I've not seen anything update as of yet, it makes sense that the main map still needs a USB.
Dealer also mentioned map updates are free...however am I right in thinking they are only "free" while you have a paid connected drive membership? Once that runs out are you no longer able to update the maps without paying?
Correct. New BMW vehicles in the US (can't speak to other countries) come with 3 years of membership or service so once that runs out, he'll have to pay.
