Upgrading Nav OS on MkIII

The wife's '02 X5 came with V18 installed. I was going to upgrade to V23, but I can't find a disk image - bmwnavigation.com is apparently down. I've got an image of V27.1 from http://www.megaupload.com/es/?d=9X481J1K - I never could get http://www.filefactory.com/?f39b3b to work.

Are there any downsides to using the V27.1 image on the MkIII? I've burned both a CD with V27.1 and another with the Key CD image. I'm ready to give it a try as long as it won't screw up the wife's ride...

Any disk image higher than V22 will take the MkIII to the latest.

It Worked!!

Finally gathered up my courage last night and inserted the V27.1 CD that I had burned. No problems at all - took about six minutes. I haven't had a chance to check out any differences between V19 and V22 on the MkIII, but it's nice to know that it's as up-to-date as it's gonna' be without upgrading to a MkIV.

Also got the 2006.2 CDs in from NavTec($50 off deal). Much improved coverage where we live SW of Atlanta. Even has all the streets in my little(60 homes) subdivision - nice surprise.

What software did you use to burn the cd? And what brand CD did you use? I tried it last night and I think I fried my MKIII... The screen just stays blank now... Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Dont load v27 on a MK3 drive

I loaded v27 on my MK3 and it never loaded.... and it never ran again! Had to scrap it and buy a new unit. (Upgraded to a MK4 - dvd drive) The version I used wiped out the cmos type firmware on my drive. Besides, v27 doesn't do much for you on the mk3's. Don't be like me, that mistake cost me $1000!

That sucks! I used Alcohol 120% and burned a generic blank at 4X(slow as my drive would go). Maybe I just got lucky...

I got it working again by reburning V22.1 on a Mitsui Gold CD-R. Used clone cd and burned at 1x. I just popped the CD-R in, waited like 2 mins. Pushed the right turning knob on the Navi, as if I were pretending the accept screen is there, and all of a sudden it came back to life and started loading the update. All is well now. Let me know if you have any questions.
