Question Download site?

Where is the site to download North America BMW Dealers? The BMW Motorrad site just has European Dealers?

I didn't know they had one. My BMW Nav II came preloaded with the dealers. It would be nice to get an update.

Shawn, do you know if this download puts the files where they can be accessed from the BMW Dealer button?

There is a link on tne Home page of BMWOA
http://www.bmwmoa.org/index.html

this is a list of USA and Canadian dealers don't know how up to date it is
It is a .pdf file and can be saved . click on the dealer name and it will take you to the dealers web-site.

Thanks Curtis, I'm aware of this one, however I'm looking for one similar to this:
BMW Motorrad Dealer Database / Update Version 1.04, found here:
http://www.bmw-motorrad.com/com/en/index.html
However this update is for European Dealers, (it downloads into the Navigator II, you press on the BMW Dealer button and it locates the dealers for you).
Only I want the North America Dealer Update, which I cannot find on the BMW web site. I know I must be overlooking something. There's no reason to think they put out an update for European Dealers & not one for North America Dealers?

Question BMW dealer download help

Shawn this site you referenced seems to be updated fairly well. My question is where do you put these files and do they automatically go to the dealer poi, also the read me file states you have to manually delete the closed dealerships and the relocated dealerships, where do you find these? Lastly is there a place to go that this downloads automatically?

Thanks for your help,

Jerry

Hi Jerry!

I'll try to answer as best I can....
  • I download the zip to my desktop.
  • I unzip and copy the contents to a folder on my hard drive where I keep motorcycle related stuff.
  • One of the included files is called BMW US Dealers.gdb.
    • I can either open this file and copy the locatioins I am interested in to a another *.gdb file (like for a trip), or
    • upload the entire file to my GPS
    • Either way, once uploaded to my GPS, they are available via the waypoints menu.
I suspect we have different GPS' hence my inability to directly answer your question Jerry - sorry. I have a Garmin 276C.

I hope this helps a little...

Hello Shawn and thank you again for the response and help you have offered,

1. How are the dealer files downloaded to MapSource or are they?
2. When you upload the entire dealer file to your Garmin 276C waypoints menu, what are the procedures?
3. How do you delete the closed dealers and relocated dealers already installed in MapSource, (if they are in MapSource), and your Garmin 276C unit?
Note: Shawn my unit is a NavigatorII (StreetPilot 2610)

Thanks,

Jerry
