When in the navigation menu, just press the option button on the iDrive controller and scroll to the bottom where you can choose to view the map data info.
As for the new maps, you can purchase them from BMW which comes on a USB stick for updating. Otherwise, you can find *ahem* shadier sources for the files. They clock in around 20-something gigabytes. You'll still need an FSC Code if it's required.
