Real Time Traffic Information Upgrade For 06 M5

The 07 M5 comes standard with the On-board navigation system (includes 8.8" screen with 16 x 9 format and Real Time Traffic Information5).

Can the 06 M5 receive update to have the Real Time Traffic Information?

5Real Time Traffic Information not available if HD Radio Audio option is also ordered.

Does anyone know the answer to this? I've been on Google for an hour with no luck. Just bought a 2006 M5 and want to do the CIC navigation upgrade but when I asked if I will have traffic I was told only if the car originally had it. So I want to see if it's possible to upgrade to traffic before i do the CIC upgrade?

Here is the info. This is FM based so no need for HD radio.

In the CAPPL, change the following from nicht_aktiv to aktiv.

TMC
CA_TMC
TMC_REGIONAL_C

Thanks. So your're saying that all 2006 M5's have the capability for traffic, it just needs to be enabled by coding?

I am pretty sure that pre-09 have CCC navigation. The OP is doing a CIC upgrade so he just needs to code the car for real time traffic.

Yes, I think at least for all E60 M5, for other E60s before 2006, I am not sure.
