Not explicity sure, but there is a value in the logging channels called "stored VIN" or something similar. This may or may not be ONLY accessable for the vin locked units, but worth a look. It's utterly retarded that some units are locked depending on when you bought it, and how much the vishnu president likes you given that some "good" customers were given unlocked firmwares. May be worthwhile just requesting it.

Your SES light should blink six times and I don't think you can update to the latest maps.

thanks for the replies.

I'm asking because I have one installed and want to sell it. But don't know if it's vin locked or not for the new owner

I think I know the answer, but am not 100% sure. If you upgraded your silver 2.0 to a 2.5, then your unit is indeed vin-locked. If you purchased a powder coated black 2.5SE then your unit is vin-lock free. I would call Robert to confirm though.
