Thank you for your response. It's an internal PDF from the "BMW Technial Services" that has me worried.

Here's an excerpt from the file:

SITUATION

With the introduction of navigation system operating software V27, there are currently 2 valid versions of navigation software.

Navigation system operating software V17.1 is used on MK III systems 1. without "Split Screen".

Navigation system operating software V27 is used on MK I, MK II, all other MK III navigation systems, MK IV DVD navigation systems on I-Bus vehicles, NAVI01, NAVI02 and NAVI03.

For this reason I'm worried if all will go well....

V17.1 is the old software that was used on the 4:3 monitor (the look is the same as the MK II), some people like this screen layout and so don't want to load the later versions with the new fonts, split screen capability etc. You should be fine with the Radio Nav system.

FYI for Mac users -

Sorry if this is posted elsewhere. For Mac users to burn the iso image, simply mount the image on the desktop by double clicking it, then launch Apple Disk Utility under /applications/utilities, then select the image and press burn. That's it.

Thanks to everyone
 
Only becouse of your feedbacks, links and DIY instructions, I have done an upgade at X5 2003 with MKIV Navi, from ver 14 to ver 27.1 without any problems.
The improvements are significant - 3D option is an option is beter to have.
It's like moving from Windows to Mac, totaly new world :)

I have use Toastit software to burn CD and it accept all possible images without any problems.

Hi treat me gently Uk owner new to BMW's,X5's & SATNAVas well as not being a computer guru, (despite using them at home and work daily in recent years).

I met up with a local ebayer today to try and fit another V50 phone jack lead to my X5 (another story and full of technical hassle due to e39 cable being too short - I wont post here so as to keep this on topic) .

I have widescreen 16:9 comms & Nav screen & was running on 3-1/40 which was version 18 I think. Anyway this guy said as well as trying to resolve my phone cable, (as said still unresolved), he would upgrade my SATNAV OS software on my Mk3 satnav unit. He brought along a copy disc marked V.27.1 which I believe is the latest disc. It seems to have loaded ok, ( no need for key CD from my last version), and seems to be working fine, (just as well as I wouldn't have much idea in sorting issues without reading up on here and/or asking kind contributors). In short time since upgrade I can't notice any extra functionality although he said it would run quicker and would notify me in advance of roadholdups, ( a bit like traffic master ?) . I have noticed TMS shows red at times at bottom of display- I assumeed this was to do with traffic info of sorts.

He had earlier told me it would have birds eye view but before meeting I had already told him I thought birds eye was only available for Mk4. After install it was just as I thought still no birds eye view. He said he would check with a friend who knows more than he does and he has since sent me SMS text confirming no Birds eye view except on the Mk4 which is what I had said to him before upgrade.

2 questions :

1. I have trawled and serached and whilst the FAQ states no birds eye possible for Mk3 upgrade to V27.1 can someone confirm this is 100% definitely the case ?

2. The same guy told me to expect to be able to enter postcodes but I cant se this option in location finder. Am I missing something or is this for Mk4 only too ?

I have just moved house with plenty of spending as well as only just upgrading my car, (unfinanced), so def no plans for mods yet. I may in future consider getting a secondhand Mk4 and then selling my Mk3 on ebay (on wish list with other possible mod's).
Not one to have a nosebleed if not running latest tweaks or having all mods fitted - more happy in ownership at this stage to be grateful for what I own & that it's working correctly and just as it should be. (this goes for the whole car not just the NAV).

Thanks in anticipation - your answers to 1 & 2 appreciated.

100%, birds eye view is only available on Mk IV's.

This 'feature' is disk dependent. As far as I know all genuine BMW CD map disks do not have postcode information (but I'm not 100% sure about the latest disks from 2006). You can get VDO disks that will work in the MK III that do have postcodes on.

The DVD map disks from 2006-2 do have postcodes on them.

The Postcodes are not implemented fully on either disk, only the first 4-5 characters, they are implemented as a 'City' - better than nothing but not briliant.

In the US the latest Nav software and latest disk are supposed to support full ZIP code entry, this may be comming to the UK in the next software/disk update.

The TMC (not TMS) that you see on your screen is the Traffic Message Channel that notifies you of traffic holdups. If the letters are in red then the map disk you have does not have TMC codes that are required to recieve the messages, the latest BMW CD map disks MAY have the codes on, the VDO disks are available with and without them on.

This is the VDO disk with codes : http://www.navshop.com/en/product/un...yton/3027/18/1

This is the one without : http://www.navshop.com/en/product/un...yton/3026/18/1

Burn a fresh disk at the lowest possible speed and on the best quality CD-R media you can get your hands on. Put the new disk in your nav drive, cross your fingers and hope for the best.
