I believe v22 will get the MkIII to the most recent version. Above that, there are no updates for the MkIII drive.

What gets us into trouble is not what we don't know...it's what we know for sure that just ain't so

3-1/63 is as high as it goes at this time. Any disk V22 or higher will take you to that level.

Yes that mk4 should work in your 530d E39, you will need to wait a short amount of time for the functions and modules to apper in the menu page, it takes time for the system to recognise and adjust to the new nav computer.

Just go to v28, and it should be OK.

Remember to power down the mk3 correctly when upgrading to the mk4, or you will leave the mk3 in an unstable state, bad news if you are going to sell it on.

Look here for firmware updates.


Hope this helps.
