Observations regarding V27 and USA 2006-2 DVD Rom

Just installed v27 without any issues. Thanks again X5World for making this available to everyone.

Heres a couple of observations I noticed. When you enter a destination, you are now prompted for City/ZIP? I could have swore it only said City before with V26 and 2006-2 DVD, but I could be wrong there ...

In any case, sure enough, you can enter a location directly from a US Zip code ! A feature many users I know have being requesting for along time.

The other small change I noticed is that in the Emergency sub-menu (I have BMW Assist with B/T), the two options available are now SOS and Assistance. Before they said, Emergency and Assist. Still calls BMW Assist as before though!

Cheers, Adrian

Wink New feature!!!

I believe that's a new feature on the 2006-2 dvd not the software since i saw it in v26!!!! Question : Have you had any problems with the navigation loosing position or getting lost??? I was in the city today and it kept on getting lost and appearing in different streets than what I was on. Anyone in NY with this problem??? Sorry if I'm hijacking your thread!!!!

Hi,

I did have lots of problems with loosing position and getting lost.
I use v27 and DVD roadmap Europe High 2006/1.
I am from Germany but this obviously seems to be a prob of the v27 since i did not have this issue using the v26.

Greets,

Kermit

I too have this problem, just started yesterday and looked at the service menu, and it seems the gps sensor doesn't pick up the location of the car and 30mins later it found it, only it was somewhere off the map - the co-ordinates kept changing and finally it located where I was?

Is v27 ok to use officially? I'm in the UK with DVD 2005-2 Disc

I've also had the problem since upgrading to v27. Twice the system has lost its spot. Once it had me driving off the map about 50yds away from the highway (albeit parralel to the highway). The second time it got lost near my house by the time I got home, it was about 50-100 yds off.

Interesting to see others with the same problem. Is there anyway to report this?

I havent'

flashed to v27 on my Mini from v26 yet, but using the 2006 US DVD map and I notice now it says City/TC, what the heck is TC? And it amazes me how after 2 1/2 years they still haven't updated the map with my best friends address.
