I have a E88 125i convertible 2008 that had the Pro Nav option from new, the Navigation option is greyed out on the screen so not accessable. I know its was an option but am having trouble getting to the bottom of the problem, the head unit only has a CD slot, is this right? I have been told by a BMW specialist independent that BMW may have to input some sort of code to reactivate it and told by a BMW dealet that the head unit should have a DVD drive. Anyone on here able to help me?

If it’s CIC pro nav with single dvd slot (not cd) then yes you need to obtain the FSC code which is derived from the “1b file” hidden in your car.

All the things needed to generate yourself can be found and explained HERE (y) Hopefully all the links are still working. Once you have the 1b file it’s easy to generate the code applicable to the Nav version (by date i.e. Europe Premium 2019-2 etc). Save the 1b, you only need to get it once but it’s used on each code update.

It sounds like you or someone else has attempted a map update without an FSC code and it’s in limbo.
