Hi,

I was following the earlier thread and noticed that it said you should make sure the iso was in Mode 2 format. I downloaded the file above and extracted the file (NAV_SW(v32).iso) and noticed in Nero that is says it is a Mode 1 file.

Is it still safe to use?

In a Mk4 it is fine

do NOT use it in a Mk3, it will crash the Mk3.

I have v31 in my MK4 and use Europe high version 2008-2 burned on a double layer disc and my navigator become very slow when I am changing some adresses and even when I am scrolling in the meny . When I put in a modded DVD 2008-2 burned on a regular DVD the navigator is normal again. Is the v32 a fix for this problem?

No, V32 contains no change to the Mk4 software on V31.

Both V31 and V32 contain 4-1/100

The slowdown in response is most likely related to the increase in data on the disc (dual layer holds more data)

To incease speed of disc access do the following:

1. Use an original BMW disc, not a copy. It is read faster by the nav, and speeds up operation of the nav

2. Use a single-layer DVD.

I have a 2004 M3 and I'm wanting to upgrade my navigation. I'm really confused about all the jargon being used, and would really appreciate it if someone would take the time and help me out. I downloaded the v31 update and installed it in my car fine, but now I need the actual updated navigation dvd. I just saw that the v32 update is out, so should I download that? Please do not tell me to search, because I have been for days, and have burned multiple dvds that have not worked. I'd really appreciate the help. Thanks.

And what about the navcoder I keep seeing, does that have anything to do with my navigation system?

Does anybody actually care about the fact that it is not v32 that's available in the OP?

V.31 adds dual layer DVD reading... does that mean we can use the nav data disks that come with new, iDrive cars or are they just working off a different database?

No Mate, the I-drive cars use the PRO map discs, our cars use the HIGH, all discs after 2008-2 will probably be supplied on a DL discs from now on, for both PRO and HIGH.

The map Database is the same (AFAIK) but the formatting is slightly different.
