Hey Paul, why not make an icon that looks like an X5? instead of the bmw's arrow with a circle?

It only makes a difference to the file size, not the display or function of the Navigation Computer as far as I can see. They update instantly.

Because I drive an E46

I might do something like that in the future.

Great stuff. I created my own custom colour. Its sort of like "a british racing green affair" .... All worked great using NAV Tweak. Also updated the lng_rel.tbl and sw_rel.tbl to "27.2" so that my USA coded NAV wouldn't revert back to Euro uncoded mode !!

Attached is some snaps - sorry about the quality, but my digital camera is pretty dreadful ....

how do you update the lng_rel.tbl and sw_rel.tbl to 27.2? I can't upload a splash screen because I updated the software before deciding to change the splash screen. Thanks.

I used a free HEX editor for Windows (HHD HEX EDITOR).

http://www.hhdsoftware.com/Products/...itor-free.html

First 4 bytes in each file looks like '0710' (HEX: 0x30 0x37 0x31 0x30). It's the software version number. Changed it to '0720' (HEX 0x30 0x37 0x32 0x30).

I also modified the navboot file using gifextractor, and changed the header text to reflect the new firmware revision.

I was playing around with this some more and BMW have already included a alternative Colour Set within the existing navboot. Perhaps this one was used in a prior release of the firmware prior to my knowledge. Its actually a bit similar to the green one I made above .... perhaps a bit lighter and easier on the eyes. I am sure they had a whole group of folks working on the most optimum colours !

In any case, you can find it in "colours for widescreen" rom_col_8 or rom_col_9. I copied this over to rom_col_ 1 to replace the blue split screen colour set ...

Navtweak is a great program !!! :-)

Yes, that colour scheme is one of the standard schemes for the MINI's navigation system. It uses the same Mk-IV machine.

Thanks apw...do you do this for every single lng_rel.tbl and sw_rel.tbl or just the ones in the 0101 folder in the RR folder? Thanks.
