Here is a post that tells you about the different SW versions, talks about how to do an update, and has links to the image downloads.

You can update with any distribution OS from V22 and up. The MKIII software on all those disks is identical.

Look through this thread to find where you can download V28. If you download V28 use Alcohol 120% to burn to a CD. This will give you version 3-1/63 when you load it. Be patient. You will have a blank screen for up to 90 seconds when you insert the update CD - just listen to the SatNav computer "whirring" - & wait!

Yes I did this but I cannot hear the sat nav working! It is like freeze at this screen! But it gives me that note and when I push the right knob this note (that the software will be loaded) disappears! I also tried to install v 18 but it does the same thing! I dont know what to do! When I load the software I must be to the "Menu" section or not? The radio and the monitor should be off?I have a markIII SatNav with 3-1/21 system software.My version is 16.2. Can I go to v28 directly?

Plntzas,

did you do the update 9/17/2005

this is a problem, but can be solved.

Leave the software cd in the MK3/4 Unit. Be sure that the ignition is on.

Then you have to pul out the MK3/4 unit and unplug the Blue connector.
Put the Blue connector back and then the software update will go.

gr. Appy

Just start your engine & allow your SatNav to boot up to the normal operating screen. Eject your Map CD, insert the new OS update CD then go & have a coffee, leaving the engine running...... See what you see when you return after 10 minutes. Patience is a magical thing! I used to work with Greeks & Italians so I know how impatient & emotional you can be

Don't start your engine - BMW recommend ignition position I. If the screen never gets past this point, then burn another CD-R as slowly as possible using high quality media.
