If the modified O/S is based on an original v.32 the only thing that should happen is you will get the new splash screen, and the day/night mode, or the O/S will remain unchanged. If does go sideways, install a known good v.32. and your system should be back up. However if you update and then revert to an older O/S the nav system will revert to UK. Don't ask why. All that really means is on Mk-III the accept screen goes away and "ft" becomes "yrds".

Quoting myself here, but I have gotten some PMs so thought I would answer them here too...

For those getting the "Insert CD Key" message:
I unzipped the "CD Key" zip file and burned the CCD file in the unzipped CD Key folder to a CD using ImgBurn at 4x speed. Inserted into the MKIII and the setup continued on.

For those that have done this upgrade, is the .cue file we are burning onto the CD only 1kb? Am I missing something here?

thanks.

Yeah. So the actual data is contained in the .bin file, and the .cue file has the instructions for the CD burner. Chose the .cue file, and the data from the .bin file is automatically written. Your final CD size should be ~320 mb or so (recalling from memory).

I did this yesterday, and works just fine.

One thing i have seen though - and this really should not be related at all - is that my PDC is a lot more jumpy after the install. It stays on a lot longer, and now it sometimes comes on as i'm driving in traffic. I've had to manually switch it off a couple times.

This has only definitely started happening after the upgrade. I know they shouldn't be related, since the upgrade is NAV only, but i can't find any other correlating factor.

Would be interested to see if anyone else sees this.

Re: Navigation Software Update For Everybody

You can always downgrade to v26 and see if it fixes your issue with pdc.

Sorry, I don't know if its the lack of sleep or what, but this isn't working for me. I have extracted the 3 files and saved them to a folder. I insert a blank CD and burn just the .cue file as instructed. After it burns the CD only has the one .cue file on it and its only 1kb. What am I doing wrong?
