I just ordered the latest version Nav software from the link below. The seller has a good description of the different versions of software, and clarifes that V29.1 is the latest for the MKIV, and V30 only has updates for the E65 and E66 series. By ordering V30, I am in fact getting V29.1. I was going to download and update from the link on X-5 world, but I tried that a couple of years ago, and ended up crashing her MKIV unit. The dealer replaced it under warranty, and it had V26 which was the latest at the time, but i decided to spend $15 and get a professionally burned version. If the link doesn't work, go to eBay and search for "nav V30"

It's the little things in life that I look forward to!

I guess there is some value in not having to spend the time to download and burn a disk, but I hate paying for something I can get for free. I also like the instant gratification you get by not having to wait for it in the mail.

Next time you need an upgrade, try burning it at the slowest speed. If you have another burner try that also. Not all burners work as well. A bit of trial and error is needed.

You are right. When I updated my Mk III with v.30 the first time, I used the disc that I burned using the fastest speed, and it didn't work.
My nav just went black screen on me in the middle of installation.

Luckily, I burned the second disc using the slowest possible speed, pop it in the Nav, did the upgrade and it works well eversince.

I didnt want to risk it a 2nd time. I guess i'm a bit more conservative. Cant wait to receive it.

not sure. When you order it, you will get an email asking which unit and software version you have. Depending on the software version, they will also send you a key CD for the MKIII. I believe the eBay listing describes that.
