New map disk/software upgrade installed(night mode)

Just installed my new Nav software and updated maps(2010). Got a new splash screen too. I like. Nightime view too. I had downloaded a version off xoutpost but this one is much better even though I had to pay for it. Took about 10 days to get from Romania. http://www.bmwnav.net/

New splash screen.

So this works? I was wondering about it. Seemed sketchy, with it being $50 when the regular 2010 software is $200...

How well does the speed camera thing work?

Any shots of "night-mode"?

I want to upgrade mine; but can't justify the dealer pricing. $50 is fair.

I am guessing the Romanian version is bootlegged, correct?

True, but after trying out many other "modded" versions that were hit and miss, it was nice to get something that is complete and bug-free plus no more "coasters". And I get the custom splash screen of my choice. Plus I got the updated map, not sure if it's on the torrents yet. There are just so many different modded versions out there. It's easy to D/L and burn but finding the right software that works the way it should is the hard part. Also I have nothing to do with this company and am no way trying top push their product. I feel if your happy with a product and it was helpful everyone should know.

There is a very good DYI guide on the forums. I remember when I got my car 2 months ago I followed the steps and updated my system at first shot. The updated map however is a different story, I looked through many torrents but could not find the 2010 version, I managed however to make a few more copies of 2007 maps. Maybe you will be kind enough and seed the 2010 on torrents

Do you have to manually switch to night mode? Maybe it's asking too much from BMW for automatic mode switching considering my 2003 & 2005 Infiniti and 2007 Garmin GPS had this functionality YEARS ago.

Manually. You just go to settings on the main menu and there are two settings.

I thought 4-1/00 was the latest for the MKIV NAV system?

As for torrents the best I was able to do was 2008.1 for NA....got 2009.1 as well but it was for EUR

Oh and hit me up too mousitch!

I really just paid for the 2010 nav disc...I already had a buggy version of night mode that i burned from xoutpost that constantly lost sat reception(and it was the newest version). So it was a win-win for $50.

BTW for the US folk, to get the goods from that Xoutpost thread you have to dive in deep as it's primarily just for UK. Here's one custom made for a US guy that I'm going to try:

Nightmode, M splash, sky, pointers, UK female voice (when USA selected), with camera voice alert and POISoN patched.
