I received this as well. Is the update worth the couple hundred bucks or is there a better map update that comes out later in the year?

No, it's only worth about $50 or less.

The nav routing algorithms in our cars are deficient!
BMW ought to address the mediocre performance of the built-in navigation.

The annual maps updates don't improve that, they just refresh the data. Year over year, I am not entirely convinced it's worth upgrading but every 2-3 years it can be useful because streets and POIs undergo enough changes to justify the upgrade over that much time.

Also the 2014 maps update is not available for the car with the newer head unit (NBT mid 2012 and onwards on most models). Should be out shortly. Older ones (CIC) has been avail for a few weeks now.
