thanks Sleuth....So v 27.1 is availble now for US models?
I need to verify with my dealer what version they have...the dealer should have the latest, and be able to upload it on site, i'd think....before delivery, along with their other prep

Mine's a US 530I so the update works fine for these models. I can't say if US dealers would have this yet though since I downloaded it from the link posted earlier in this thread and performed the upgrade myself

Most European dealers have the 27.1 allready. They received it latest this week. I guess the US dealers should have gotten it also. BUt even If U get a V27 on Your new car it would be absolutely fine! I have installed V27.1 on my X3 and I got it installed in my friends X5 yesterday from the dealer. Can not see any difference until now

You probably will lose the custom startup image, but you probably will not get Accept back. The only way to get the Accept back is to have a dealer re-code the nav computer.

would i have to upgrade to 27.1, downgrade to 26 then re-uprgade to 27.1 (re-compiled with my own startup image) ?

or could i just modify the 27.1 with my startup image and upgrade to not lose it?

So long as you are changing the OS version the image will be updated too, so going from 27 -> 27.1 will load the image from the disk. This would be the recomended path as loading an older version and then a newer one again can cause undesirable side effects, better to just keep going up.

I modified 27.1 with my own image, then upgraded my 27 to 27.1.. The custom image is still there, and the Accept screen is still gone =) Worked like a charm..

the only thing I do notice is that there is no longer a version number displayed at the top right of the settings page.. when i loaded 27.1, it said "Application Version 7.10".. but i no longer get a version number in the settings area.. oh well.

1. Push the "MENU" button to get to the the main menu.
2. Scroll to the "SETTINGS" menu selection and click the knob to select it.
3. Push and hold the "MENU" button for about 8 seconds to enter the GPS Service Menu.
4. Scroll beyond the bottom to a 2nd page, where you will get the Perspective option.
