Just thought I'd comment...

-Initially burned the image with ImgBurn. Verified the disk: detected 3 "errors"
-Burned another disk using Alcohol 120% (on a different PC, different .rar file) - No errors reported. Then used ImgBurn to verify the disk, again detected 3 "errors".

Thoughts?

There is one exception to this rule that we know about. It involves replacing the voice prompt(s) with a different language. i.e switch the USA voice to a English voice, etc. You can do this with the same version you have already installed. However, even when you do this ... it will not reset the system and take it out of USA mode.

You are correct however if you downgrade the firmware version. In all cases this does revert the Nav computer to the default region which appears to be the so called Euro mode.
I stand corrected. Thank you.

\V_2\RR\0101\BMWC01S\app_sw\tioarch.tar seems to contain some config files and some of the options look like the ones some people are desperate for ...

nav_gd.tio
----------
[OffroadGuidance]
OffroadGuidanceMode=1
OffroadGuidanceVoiceMessageMode=1

0 being true and 1 being false, hmmm I wonder ...

Regards,

Odia.
Did anyone already tried to change the OffroadGuidance in 0 or can advise from personal experience on the effects?

I don't have any difficulties with opening the tioarch.Tar and reading the nav_gd.tio with WinRar. But it seems impossible changing anything and Tar it again. I already tried in different ways.


Before suggesting anything, please try it first or make an attachment with corrections.
Thanks,

El

Hi Everyone! I just wanted to advise you all that I downloaded the NAV OS Ver. 28 .rar file, extracted it with WinRar and burned it with Alcohol 120% to a CD. Loaded it today on my 2005 X5, no problems, nothing was changed, everything worked fine. Then added the new 2007.1 Map DVD created the same way, again no problems. Set-up Perspective View in the Service Menu and enjoyed the new view. All is well and I will make the same upload of NAV OS to my X3 tomorrow and then add the new 2007.1 Map DVD.

Thank you all for sharing!!

MJM

Mac user here. I used UnRarX to de-compress all files, changed the .mdf to .iso, used Toast to 'mount disc', used Toast further to burn both v28 and 2007.1 (separately of course) and am happy to report that everything works perfectly with my 2005 X5! Thanks to all who shared! You guys rock!!!

Can Anyone Help me to load Nav OS v28?

I have downloaded v28 after I couldn't get v27.1 to work but have the same problem. I downloaded v28 as a ".rar" file and extracted it into two files, a ".mdf" file and a ".mds". I have burned them both to a CD then gone to car and followed instructions posted in this thread. That is I turned the ignition to position 1, got Sat Nav working and then removed the map DVD and inserted the CD. A message comes up to say that an incorrect DVD/CD has been inserted and to replace with an appropriate disk. This also came up with the v27.1 CD I had burned. In both cases I used Nero to burn the discs and used the option for burning a data disk. Can anyone help?

You aren't burning those two files directly to the CD, are you?

If so, that's not what you want to do. Those files are control and image files that contain data that a program such as Alcohol 120% will use to make an exact duplicate of the original.

Thanks for this. I did assume the references in the thread to Alcohol and Imgburn were just standard burning s/w so ignored them. I'll try to find a site to download one of these and give it a go.

Thanks again.

Is there any update order that you have to go in or can I go from lets say version 25 to version 28?

You can go directly from V25 to V28.
