    Hi all, I've searched but can't find an answer. Does the BMW Nav V support OSM maps?

    Thanks!

    Oh - and is it just a GPS receiver or does it support Glonass?

    Thanks Steve. I've heard of some issues with OSM hanging at 80% when calcualating a route on the Nav V. Have you experienced that or does it route OK?

    I never had a routing issue. For context, I was using a relatively small European mapset on my mSD card and was only routing ~200 kilometre days and checked each route on the device using BaseCamp. I use http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl for download.

    if it matters i use NZ open street maps on a garmin nuvi.Th only warning i would have for you is do not try to use basecamp 4.7 to update your maps .4.6.2 is the one.Its actually mapinstall that is the problem
