V27 available now!

A few minutes ago I installed the new V27 OS to my nav computer. The version number is 4-1/70 now, but there are no differences to the 26.09a except the logo and the versionnumber...

You have to activate "perspective mode" in the secret menu, but that's it. I thought V27 should be more smoothly, but it is'nt.

It has not yet arrived at the usual places but your BMW-dealer should have it and can do the upgrade...

I think there's no difference between v27 and v26 if you don't enable the perspective mode in the secret menu.

If you do that, you get the same version like 26.09a. Not more - not less.

Even if he does, I'm more than SURE that he wouldn't offer it up here as that would be ILLEGAL! The nav firmware (just like the nav map data) is copyrighted material and shouldn't be passed around via this board or the Internet in general.

If you want V27, then you need to get it from your local BMW dealer.

It's a five minute install (tops) and most dealers don't charge for doing the update when you bring your car in for service.

I'm going to check with the local dealer in SoCal re: V27 availability.

To my thinking, it's perfectly legal. It's a firmware upgrade for a hardware you PURCHASED, and as such, it should be free. For computer hardware I've never seen a company that doesn't distribute firmware upgrades freely.

We could argue on this, but it's pretty pointless, if we take such laws by the wording, all of us are criminals - if my kid draws a BMW logo in kindergarten, that is an infringement of copyright laws.
