I have the 2008-1 disk, but unfortunately it does not have Poland yet.

I don't want to invest the time if it can't work.

I realize all I will see at best is a black screen with the safety cameras and I won't even be sure that they are on the road I am on. But it is still better than having no information about the cameras at all.

Thanks for any help, and thanks for the UK site - it's hard getting info in Poland when you don't speak Polish.

I understand the Polish BMW owners who paid euro 5,000 for navigation and still don't have maps for Poland are fuming, including me - for this reason alone I wish I would have gone Audi A5 - at least they have the map for Poland even if the ride of the car suffers.
Unfortunately, Poland is still not included on the 2008-2 SatNavPro disc. I had a check of the display for Poland & I'm afraid no routes are held on the disk at all.

Only the following countries have route data held on the 2008-2 disk:

You will need a new 2008-2 (SatNavPro I assume?) DVD to replace your older version, & it will be available from a variety of sources.

Each successive DVD release contains updated routes & points of interest (POIs). The 2008-2 disc also has a number of additional search choices.
eg type of restaurant, availability of hotel parking, type of shopping etc

Sergei tells me that his testing has been underway for the last few days, allegedly.
He may now have tested as follows, without any problem:

1 PC with NEC 3520 DL burner using Nero, X4 & X2 burn speed

2 iMac with internal DL burner using Toast9, X4 & X2 burn speed

3 Aone 8x(Ricoh media) DVD+R DL (dual layer): (cheap as 'chips' & seems to work ok, but can't guarantee long-term durability- those 'tight ar*es, who choose to use cheaper media, should take a look here!)

4 Verbatim 2.4x DVD+R DL:

Sergei recommends burning using Verbatim DVD+R DL discs at X4 or lower.

He also would like to make it quite clear, to any 'numpties' in particular, that you MUST use dual layer (8.5GB) media with a suitable dual layer DVD burner, if you want to burn the likes of the 2008-2 disc image, which will NOT fit on an ordinary single layer disc.

More information to follow shortly.
