You have a monochrome radio nav that gives arrow directions. Type 1 (4-1/00) is the color map nav.

There is no official 7-digit postcode search. It was added as a 'fudge' and I believe uses the POI system, a bit like with the speed camera database. Not ideal and I haven't got it on my map dvd.

As for TMC, I assume you'd have that in the UK, but don't know how it is implemented in the mono (radio navigation) screen.

First off let's get the correct type of screen you have, which of these screens do you have mate

business


4:3


16:9


Trapdoor is correct, 7 digit postcode is not OEM, and is an add on (as a poi).

TMC AFAIK is not a function of the business nav

I'd be very surprised if you have the noddy nav in your m3...

That's a bit pants mate, do you have the blue and white plugs in the back of the radio? if so you maybe able to upgrade to a 4:3 or wide screen.

Like so?
