In answer to your questions enzo :

1) They all do that, and nobody knows the reason why.
2) No, I don't believe there is a way.

k thank you i was worried i messed some thing up in navtweak but glad to know... i think it has to do with the navigation system stayin on. if you notice when u turn off the car(or atleast in my zed) u can hear is still running and if u turn the car off then wait a minute and turn it back on the warning screen wont even appear.. and it'll still be on the same screen as when u turned the car off i.e. menu/gps/ what ever. just a thought...

1. Splash screen shows on COLD BOOT only.
Warm boot occurs when nav is in standby mode
Cold boot occurs after nav has totally shut down (full power off)
Standby occurs when ign off but databus still active, or less than 60s after bus has gone idle.
Total shut down occurs after ign off, and databus has been idle (no traffic) for 60 seconds or more.

To test: open boot and observe nav. Turn ign off, go to boot and watch nav. Wait. The red LED will be blinking and still on (nav in standby), waiting for 60s timeout. After 60s of car sitting there doing nothing, the nav LED will do some rapid blinking (writing to flash memory) and then go out. As soon as the LED is off, the nav has done a total shut down.

For a start up after total shut down, the nav must boot from cold (COLD BOOT), and this is the time period that the splash screen is shown

The nav is designed like this so that the nav only needs to warm reboot after brief ign off periods - like refueling, or just stopping and starting the engine

2) No, to changing the boot time period is not possible. Why would you want to anyway?

My mod with the help of navtweak and all the posts

Hello everyone,
I have been using x outpost to help me modify about everything on my 04 X3.
But I only discovered the forums about 3 days ago accidentally. I had no intention of modifying anything on my car. But I stumbled upon the navigation posts. After reading all the posts on navtweek, night mode, and v32 I modified my navi. I am writing this post to say thank you to all posters for making a friendly informative community and to show how the information was used.
Also to maybe help someone in the future.

First day I installed v32 from whatever was on the 04, 4-1/24 i think. And activated perspective mode. Which is honestly the only thing I thought was missing on the navi when i changed from a $100 plug in one.
Perspective mode is activated at the bottom of the following menu which is opened by holding menu when in settings for 10 seconds, just restating for anyone who is wondering as this seemed to be a very common question.

Afterwhich while viewing the map select perspective under point of view.
Everyone should know what it looks like so I won't post a pic of a standard perspective map.

After obtaining many poi icons, pointer icons, splash screens, and reading 200 pages of posts for ideas. I began modifying the navboot and photoshopping a splash screen. After spending about 6 hours editing 7 photo's together and rotating the 2d and 3d pointers I burned my first OS mod onto an RW which did not take. The RW was a memorex high speed so the slowest it could do was 10x and the fastest was 12x so not much of a choice there. I changed the iso to mode 2 and tried again and that also did not take. I then took the v32 iso and just switched out the navboot and .tbl files. And that took up until the "this will take 6min do not turn off your ignition" screen. which remained on for 10 min and then I tried to eject the disc and turned off the car.

I tried everything I could but the disc would not come out and whenever I turned on the car I would see that screen which I am labeling the blue screen of death for the bmw.

Scared out of my mind that I actually screwed my mk4 because i was forced to turn off my ignition. I panicked. And joined this forum for advise. But apparently I can't post instantly. After obtaining a very small torx I disassembled the nav lifted the motor and ejected the disk manually. That was a wonderful feeling.

After hooking back up the nav my system had only black screen so it apparently had no os. I cracked the rw disk 3 different ways and tossed it. It was already scratched from trying to get it out manually.

I burned on another rw disk the same mod but without replacing .tbl files as i
was not worried about an os increase. This worked perfectly within 3 min I had v32 with all my mods. I assumed then that the other disc had either a problem with my hex editing of the .tbl files or the previous deletes on the disc screwed the process.

Well here is the end result.
Splash screen combined from 4 images on the splash forum, 2 personal photos ,which i censored if you are wondering what the scribbles are, and 2 hours modifying the BMW logo.


Accept Screen, The words were taken from a picture on the splash screen forum which I thought were funny although could possibly be reworded better.


In the settings menu I only changed color set to Day / Night as i used the night mode files provided by ccfj1


I changed the pointers in 2d mode, using the vertical pointer provided by someone. I rotated it for every angle just in case for some reason someone will want it to point north.


For perspective i added two more angles to the angel wings
2d pointer used



All of these are in the night mode color set from ccfj1 which i did not modify.
I like the sky as it matches the night mode and did not want to make another and i like that there is no orange around the selections. I also did not want to do guess and check on changing the colors.


This is all the pointers used and modified. Pointers
This is a temp server file so if anyone wants to repost it elsewhere feel free.
It includes all the 2d pointers as metallic and 5 perspective pointers with removed fronts as those are the only angles i've noticed the car to use.

Hope you guys like the mod. I am open to all suggestions for my second mod and any friendly criticism on this one. Last thing left for me to upgrade is a backup camera so my wife can drive the car. If anyone has as any suggestions please let me know.

Lastly I also downloaded the 2009.1 map from a link on a post and noticed that it no longer offers general destinations as a choice in information.

I was wondering if anyone would know why this is? If it is an os change or a map disk change or niether?
