Thumbs up Review: Pimp my Nav

Hi there,

in this thread I would like to do a review on pimp-my-nav
, the PC tool for adding POI's on your BMW NAV Factory CD or DVD.

I used the program now for a couple of months.

I must say it's a great tool to add aditional POI's to BMW's fixed Nav-system.

I tried DVD High 2007 en DVD High 2008 on a MK4.

It's almost the same as you add Poi's to a TomTom. First the tool can checks wich version of DVD you have. In the next screen it will show the menu structure of POI's on the DVD.

Now you can add submenu/catagories or direct new POI's.
It's a very logical en simple tool. So BMW POI's for dummies.

In the next menu you can add OV2 files, like the ones on a TomTom of various other formats from other NAV systemens. ALso you can add a icon for that type of POI like you where used to do.

After adding all POI's you wanted with ther specific icon, the tool will create a new ISO file. After the ISO file is ready, the will burn it directly on a new DVD (R or RW, + or -)

After the burningproces is finished, put the DVD in your MK4 and enjoy your new POI's. As simple as that.

Please any comments to this review, it's definatly worth the Sticky mark.

Programmes like that, just like the NavCoder tool, will make people enjoy their cars even more, keep up the good work!!!

Obtain the latest update for Pimp-My-Nav that adds support for the larger capacity dual layer DVD media.
