Does someone have the specifications of the MKIV navigation system? I'm curious to see how much potentiol there is to go. V26 brought us (I think) anti-aliased graphics and V27 (may..) bring us even more wicked graphics!

Some guy spread this pic across the internet. It is a beta version of v27, which shows bird view graphics. This same guy claims now that the birdview option will be deleted from the final v27 option because our DVD players would not be capable of processing this heavier software.

So don't expect too much of it. Personally, I would never install a beta version on a 3000 usd nav system.

That might very well be the case. The MKIV has a weak 108MHZ processor of what design I don't know. The speed of that processor will dictate if the NAV unit can reneder a 3D or bird's eye view with enough speed to make it usable. I could not find the processor specs on any of the Garmin or Magellan units. The Tom Tom Go units which all will do bird's eye and 3D have a 400MHZ ARM920T processor. Obviously a much faster processor than whats found in the MKIV. There is no doubt that bird's eye view is possible on a MKIV as the picture suggests but I bet the screen redraw rates are so slow that it might not be worth having. Does anyone know who this guy is with the Beta version? Maybe someone could ask him to describe the behavior of his MKIV while in the bird's eye view.

The MkIV is actually made by VDO Siemens. They make the OEM version of the MkIV for BMW etc., and the aftermarket version for Audiovox and VDO Dayton. I talked to one of their technicians yesterday and he mentioned that the two units have the identical motherboard.

While the OEM unit is limited in functionality, the aftermarket systems rock. You can choose between 9 languages, 2D and 3D rendering, etc. They look identical from the outside as well.

The newer nav systems (such as the new 5 series) have the bird's eye view. Gotta figure out a way to make it work for the X5! It is also possible to add an aftermarket unit and view it on your factory nav screen...(just like watching DVD or Reverse cam) ...maybe that's what this guy has done??
