V27 killed my TMC....

anybody had this trouble? TMC was ok before I put on V27, now its gone and I am unable to select it in any menu.

I caught a Spanish chat link stating a similar problem although I cant understand it all.

For you US chaps; TMC = traffic message channel, used in the EU, it receives traffic news via the FM radio and displays any hot spot on screen on the map.

No, it works fine on mine.

TMC appeared to be OK on mine after I installed V27 - however I reverted back to V26-3D hacked version as I don't like what V27 has done to the location info.

Do you get any TMC indicator on the bottom status line? Is it Green or Red or Grey or missing?

@Bradmax: try pressing the eject button like crazy. This happens sometimes but should not. Keeping pushing. Try holding the button or push it fast and often. If you get the disc out, disconnect the battery for 10 minutes this helps sometimes with eletronic trouble.

Regarding TMC & V27: the TMC is not "broken", it just has to be reassigned in the setup menu of the radio. Happened to me as well.

Thanks for that, unfortunately it went into the BMW stealer yesterday to be told it was "broken" lol i bet they tried it it didnt work so they thought I know lets take that one off him and charge himm 855+vat to put a reconditioned one in lol!!!!

Bought another off ebay with a 2006-1 dvd aswell for less that half that amount, already v27 so fingers crossed
