    Hi Richard, having returned from holiday my bluetooth refuses to work. I did disconnect the cars battery for the period while away so am guessing that what caused it, any idea on a fix. It worked perfectly before this.
    Hope your beast and yourself is in good health,all the best,
    Wane.

    Hi Richard, hope you're well and the M5 is still running fine. It's a while since I updated my Intravee and I wondered if you could send me a copy of the latest software with auto close etc. I have registered my Intravee on the site. Regards, Gavin.

    Gavin, I did not put myself forwards for it in the end, it would have been too difficult to get down south for the day to do the filming. Maca (Paul) was chosen, Le Mans Blue with Alpina softliner wheels, and maybe one other.

    Hi Richard, hope you're well. Your car didn't get chosen for the Wheeler Dealers filming by any chance did it?

    Hi Richard,
    Thanks for replying. The nav works as it should. The problem is solely with the module and cannot be remedied by switching between zoom etc. For example, the screen is 16:9 and the dtv source is 16:9 but the displayed picture is letterbox I.e. with black bands top and bottom thus compressing the vertical height. Does yours do the same? Can the firmware be updated? Thanks again.

    Hi Richard,
    We met at the Evolve RR day and I remembered that you've got DTV of some sort in your car? Was it the OEM DVB-T or an aftermarket from the likes of TV in motion may I ask? I wuld like to pick your brains if that's OK?
    I have just fitted an OEM hybrid tuner into my fathers 2001 540i (with widescreen Nav) and all seems to work fine except for the aspect ratio. It would seem that the hybrid module would rather the screen was a 4:3 as the aspect ratio is all wrong resulting in the vertical height being incorrect for both 4:3 and 16:9 sources. From the little information that exists on the internet for this module I have deduced that a firmware update may be in order. There are no adjustable settings to instruct it to change modes. Would you know if this will resolve the issue or is it just something we have to put up with? Concerningly, the picture I can find on the likes of Bimmernav show the same problem

    Any light you can shed would be much appreciated


    Thanks



    Matt
