BMW Motorrad Dealer Database / Update

FYI:
For those like me that were not aware, BMW Motorrad offers a database for Garmin GPS units of all BMW dealers. I downloaded and installed the database and found that the database list all BMW dealers, not just motorcyle dealers. The update adds a BMW icon and takes a few seconds to install via the update program that is part of the download.

You might want to add that the update is just the European BMW dealers. So if you "update" your US version, you end up wiping out the US database and replacing it with the EUR database. I found out the hard way

There's no downloadable US database available.

I've been using http://gmccurdy1.home.att.net/Dealers/Dealers.html as a method to have all the US and Canada dealers as waypoints on the Nav II. Not as slick as the POI database above, but it works.
