Thanks GenePoole, you're definitely the MAN! I'll seed as long as I can.

I have a kinda, sorta related question. How do I check to see what navigation OS version I'm running? I have what I am assuming is the MKIV CCC Professional, but I can't get to any menu that shows me what the version is. Help!

We have CIC not CCC. CCC is the new hard drive based nav.

I don't think there is a way to check the version unless you have access to progman software.

Hi *********,

Thanks for the quick response! I'm pretty sure my E92 has CCC - update 1. I'm getting my info from this page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idrive

You can tell me if you think that source is faulty. The "in-service" date for my car was June 2008 (in other words, manufactured prior to September 2008).

At any rate, is there no other way to tell? I'd like to flash it to the latest version, but I won't mess with it if I can't even tell what version it's running now.

Thanks again.

Putzo...

You've got that backwards.

There's a way to get a diagnostic menu by pressing some buttons and turning the knob in a specific pattern but I can't remember where I saw the procedure. At any rate, why do you think it needs upgrading?

I just want to make sure it's up-to-date. I don't really have a reason other than that. :-) Goofy, I know. I work with computers, so I guess it's habit.

Interesting. I only had the .iso for the west coast - not the NA cams one. Hmm. . .

Where did you get that zip? Not from the torrent.

Your iDrive will tell you a newer version was detected. In that same message it will tell you to reboot.
I inserted the 2010 east coast DVD and got the reboot message, I'm on the west coast so it didn't show me on a map. I burnt the 2011 west coast DVD and never got the reboot message, but I'm visible on a map. Previosly I had the 2007 DVD installed. Since I didn't get a reboot message, does that mean it was never updated to 2011?

The eastern disk you inserted would have told the system that you were using a new NAV version and would have updated it's internal flag thus, so when you put in the western disk, the version was the same and no update was needed.

Ok, please pardon my igonorance on this, but I have a question. Since the maps are on two disks, what happens when I am doing a cross country trip start on west coast and end up on east coast. Do I use the east or west DVD? Do I have to pick a point inbetween and then put in a final destination once I'm at the half-way point?

The NAV will prompt you to switch disks

Just wanted to give another shout out to GenePoole. My download of the 2011.1 East and West ISOs completed last night and I burned the West one to a dual-layer DVD. Even though the burn errored during the "closing disc" procedure (twice) and I thought I had made a couple of coasters, the one I tried in the car actually worked. Got the reboot message, fired it back up and, voila, I was back in business.

Response time seems slower than with the original Navteq 2008.1 I was using, but I'm going to try burning to a single-layer disc today to see if performance will be improved.

Thanks again!

Why are some of you burning to a DL disc? That was only necessary with the older DVD discs. Starting with 2010, the discs are now in pairs and each fits on a single layer disc.

Other then receiving the reboot message, is there no other way to confirm that the new 2011 maps are being read by the navi?

Well, you should spot fixed/updated roads in places. Try driving in an area with relatively new construction that you noticed was wrong on the older disc...

Other than that, you can be assured that iDrive is reading the disc if you don't get an error about it NOT reading it!

Dual-layer was all I had at home.

Had to "borrow" a single-layer from work today.

I tried burning the 09 DVD a while back and it would only work intermittently. Hopefully I have better luck with these. Thanks to everyone for seeding!

Well, yeah: if it isn't reading the disk, it won't show a map. There is no storage on the CCC system so it must read maps from the disk in real-time.
