Exclamation Navigation Greyed Out

Hi my navigation icon is greyed out and voice commands are also not working. Can't update the map with USB. It asks to use a USB with correct VIN but my maps are downloaded for the correct VIN. Please share your thoughts on how to resolve this. Many thanks.

I want to say a big thank you to Shawn and Gerry of BMW Nav codes. Gerry managed to sort out this issue plus get the maps for Sri Lanka installed. Really reasonable prices. Highly recommended.

Hi,

My car last week went to BMW to change oil and they update the system for last version.
After update the car, the range of battery increased but I lost the Navigation and Voice commnads.

Now, the BMW Service cannot find the problem, and they need to talk to BMW Engineers. What this problem, can be?

Regards.

I have the same issue as OP.

My navigation is greyed out and satellite radio is not greyed out but it has an empty list when I click on it (not even the siriusxm preview channels). The ESN number on the satellite radio is empty as well. Please I'll appreciate any help in advance.

SN: My head unit was replaced just before I got the car.
