I had a discussion with Rob (Triflow) pertaining to our software updating efforts on this board. I know several of you guys want & wish that the "accept" screen and its acknowlwdgment button would disappear with the upgrading of the NAV software.
The latest version, which is V21 has not done away/deleted this aspect/feature of our NAV system.
As a reminder to you guys, in New Jersey and I'd assume the rest of the counrty, its illegal to have a monitor mounted or positioned in the front area of the car's interior, where the driver can view this monitor. This is written in the NJ DMV law code book, which is issued to all NJ police officers. The ONLY WAY an auto manufacturer can get away with having the NAV screen located on the dash is with their warning statement that comes on at the very beginning of the NAV operation process. This covers BMWNA and BMWAG from any matters of liability, in the event of a collision or loss of some type.
Based on this alone, BMW will NEVER create a update type software with the accept screen being deleted, for its American market. Even if their software gets up to V50, I'd bet it (the accept screen) will still be a part of the NAV screen and its system.
Now, here's my question, it directed to my European friends,
Does your NAV software and its NAV screen have the "accept" screen, where the accept button has to be pushed, in order to proceed with use of the NAV system? Or do you guys have a software/system, where there is no such "accept" aspect that one has to go through??? If this is the case, then our European friends could send copies of their NAV software, which could then possibly delete the US version accept screen on the American version NAV system.
Can anyone shed some light on this? Thanks guys!
