hmm, I've not seen any problems and am running the same as you (2008-1 + v31, both modded).

When you modded the v31 did the navboot file become bigger as a result of the changes, this is what caused me problems, once I'd reduced the modded pics (gif +jpg) to the same size as the OEM pics, then the problem (system reboots) went away.

As for the bugs you have, mine if anything "seems" a little quicker when booting and the scale changes are almost instant, I've used the direction instructions (visual and spoken) and had no problems, and the ETA has been fine.

I suspect that it could be that the OS upgrade has made the reading of the backup a little more prone to any inconsistencies in the map disc.

Things to try;
Drop back down to v29/v30 (and see if things improve)
Try a different media type for the map disc
Get hold of an OEM map disc (cd or dvd, they will both work).

Not tried v32 yet, so can't comment.

Yes, but I then replaced the mini splash screen with a much smaller file to get it back to same size - diffence is 10's of bytes only.
Is there anything else I can do to reduce size other than change my (smallish) splash and icons?

I agree - that was my thinking based on feedback on other forums.

I have used the same DVD writer, phillips DVD-R's and UltraISO for all changes for 2 years without any probs until v31. The 2008-01 is the first DVD I've used with the full UK postcode set as a POI resource. This fills the DVD close to the limit and may be causing errors at extremities.

I think I'll order a new OEM 2008-02 whilst the half price offer is still in place and give the MKIV a clean - air con seems to cause lots of dust which get pulled onto the DVD.

Thanks for the advice.

UPDATE: Working now, must have been a account setup thing, OK, logged in and working, but can't see the link for the download, I've had a look in the navigation + navigation/software forums but no link (my spanish is very limited BTW) lol.

OK, good start, if you have changed the sky and pointers (I have) then you may need to do a bit of jiggery pokery to get the file sizes down.
but 10 bytes should not affect the navboot file at all.

hmm, could be but mine also has the 7digit PCS, and I have other stuff on there too, pizza hut, ATM's etc, no problems.

Could do, it's a lot of dough though

Anyone know how to get the downloads. I've tried IE and Firefox but can't find any links to the files?

Spanish download section is only for club members, but don't worry there is not the original version but only v32 changed completely in Spanish.
That is not good for other languages.

Thanks for the info, a bit pointless posting the link up really...
