By the way, what would I benefit for encoding the navi system to the car with the BMW dealer's GT-1 after I code the mk4 from mono to color?
Dealer GT1 makes the entry into the car's option list (stored in the instrument cluster) to say that the car officially has nav.
This then in turn controls the messages that the cluster sends out on the databus

So the car coding is still required, although there is a 80% chance you will have no functional difference on the X3.
I am not sure, as very few people have retrofitted nav to the X3.

Ahhh... the ISO639-1 2-Digit code for Greece is EL, hence the confusion :-)
I know, as I have started a language file for NavCoder in Greek (NavCoderEL.lng)
