^ Got tired of waiting for an answer, prior to hacking my v31, I burned a "non-hacked" version on a verbatim disc. I decided to skip the hack, for now, and see if my non-hacked v31 disc would show the same error or not...

No problems, v31 is loaded now, but its not hacked. I guess I did something wrong. I loaded the navboot file from the correct folder into nav tweak, did my tweaks, then saved it. However, this was not done on a CD-RW, just done to the file. Should I burn the V31 non-hacked to a CD-RW, then hack it and re-burn it? I don't see what the difference would be, but obviously I did something wrong...

Any help would be appreciated, no rush, I was ancy to get it fixed before i leave for a short vacation tomorrow. I'll dive into the hacking when I get back...

Thanks!

I can't understand why you guys would want to risk bricking your NAV. It doesn't sound like v.31 does anything. Bug fixes? Mine is stable.

Unless it fixes the issues below, I'll stick with v.29.

1- switching from NAV to the radio station display when the station is changed

2- No single button to switch between Split Screen & Full Screen

3- Worthless icons that have to be turned off each time a restaurant or other destination is selected

Dual Layer DVD?

The latest NAV DVD (which I am downloading right now) is 4,668,915,712 bytes and should fit on a regular DVD.

1.2. and 3. = behaviour by design

Just because you don't like it doesn't make it a bug

Foolish design. German navigation (Microsoft) is pathetic. They can learn alot from the Japs.

Honestly you make an excellent point. #1 doesn't bug me, but #2 would be my #1 most desired improvement. It's a HUGE PITA to go from one to the other. #3 is annoying and I don't even fully understand why it happens. Do you know how to turn them off actually?

No Microsoft involved in the MK* - it's pure German and French (Siemens + VDO + Phillips CDI technology).
