Where for V24.1/V24 NAV OS for use in Restoring Splitscreen Mode on the Radio trick?

Looks like V24 and V24.1 got dropped off from the x5world board.

a) Anyone know where i may grab one of this OS version? V24.1 preferred though, but probably won't make much difference whether V24.1 or V24 used.

b) At the moment i'm sitting in V27.1, and was wondering if i could just downgrade to V27 then back to V27.1 while applying the trick would result in getting the radio split screen...

c) I would prefer not to loose the US mode, but if i have to, then Euro mode would be fine, as long as i could switch from the Settings menu, the language back from Germany to USA, and units displaying miles, mpgs and F degree, without having to get the car recoded to USA mode.

Thanks much!

Thanks everyone!

Turned out i was able to use V25.

So Brian-bmw's trick worked on me (2003 E39, MKIV, 16:9 display, BM53 radio) by downgrading from V27.1 to V25, to restore the split screen when an audio source is selected. Whew... And upgraded from V25 to V27.1 without loosing that split screen feature.

I'll add more details to following thread,


Thanks much!
