NavTweak for dummies?

Anyone know how to change the text on the accept screen similar to what Fast 5 posted on the other nav update thread currently in progress?


Thanks for any info.

Actually, my screen

Open the navboot file in NavTweak, select the 'Strings' tab, select the language tab for your MK encoding, look around line # 1/706

OK, when I said NavTweak for dummies, I meant really dumb. When I open Navtweak 2.6 and it says 'File Not loaded', what exactly am I loading and from where? I did the v30 upgrade with one of your custom splash screens a little while back. So am I modifying something with this and re-loading it on the car? Thanks for help.

When I load the CD with the v30 which I burned with Imgburn, open NavTweak, open folder V_2, open folder RR, open folder 0101, open folder BMWC01S, open folder app_sw, open navboot, then select Strings, language American, and scroll down to 1/706, I see the text to change. Does this sound like the right place? If I have v30 already loaded in the car, do I need to upgrade to v30+ or v31? Is there any trick to saving the changes made through NavTweak? Thanks for any info.

Sounds like the right place. From my understanding (which may be way of here) you need to take the ISO file and extract to a folder of your choosing. Then use NavTweak to make adjustments to the navboot file and save. If you have V30 loaded right now you can either make adjustments to sw_rel.tbl and lng_rel.tbl yourself with a hex editor in order to increment the version. Or the easier way is to download those files from D's website and place them in the right folder (\V_2\RR\0101\BMWC01S\). I would download both versions as this will allow you to make changes whenever you like (i.e. Go from V30+ to V30, then V30 to V30+, then V30+ to V30, etc). You can also download V31 and make your changes to that ISO file. After this you need to create an ISO file with the new and improved files, then burn that ISO to a CD.

Good luck, I'm going to try this myself sometime this weekend

You have MKII, like me until yesterday. Now I have MK3 that shows a splash screen.

You know how on your car, when you get in, the screen turns on but is blank showing just the date and time at the bottom? Well it shows a splash screen on the MKIII. What I want to be certain of is if I can edit that splash screen or if it's only doable with MKIV.

Gotta tell you though, it's a hell of a nice upgrade. Faster, more accurate, and more parameters for navigation (avoid tolls, etc, etc). I recommend it.
