I just got a 2017 BMW 530e G30 with adaptive dampers and the manual’s telling me they work better with the BMW sat nav. 

I’ve just got back from some long trips where I found the sat nav didn’t know the A14 exists at all, took me to a dead end and also down a smaller road that has obviously never existed.

I’d much rather use Waze, which I also suspect is better for traffic, though I like how the BMW nav zooms and gives directions in HUD.

I’ve done some digging and can’t find any detail - how much does adaptive improve with sat nav? Is it worth updating my maps and sticking with it? Or shall I just accept Waze is better?

And, second Q, with adaptive - is there any reason to use Sport/comfort? Presumably adaptive automates that for you?
