tonights the night - going to have new US nav dvd when i get home from work - fedex says its on the truck for delivery.

funny thing it went from san jose, CA to san francisco, CA to memphis, TN all the way back to oakland, CA then menlo park, CA then out for delviery.

menlo park is about 20 miles from san jose and directly on the way to san francisco. :shock:

I need to know if it updates EU RNS Es that were updated with US software without problems and if it fully supports cellphones now.

Thanks,

Alex

I hope that 0044 or any 0040+ firmware is included. If this DVD will not have TEL functionality I will install EU unit, because everything is working fine with EU without problems. :twisted:

so it is version 2A and just read disk and shows different map version ends in 409...no update or anything.

should i do anything to start update i was under the impression you just inserted the disk and it ran? i was going to restart but wanted to ask first sometimes i get a pain with entering the pin.

anyways if it is just map update what to do?---

PROXUS, others

can i use SAT radio and how is AM handled in newest EU firmware also am i stuck hacking this dvd for maps?

OR

is it better to just leave existing version of X--- or update to newest available US firmware?

i have H44 "4B0 P" unit, EU updated with US firmware version X---

from what I read you are not going to trigger update in your navigation because it's converted EU so mostlikely index ID is higher than any US software.

I have original US unit with 0040 software so I will check if DVD with trigger any updates. If we will know that updates exist on disk then we will try to build update disk for EU units. Theoriticaly it should be possible but who knows 8-[

PROXUS

right forgot the index due to original US firmware update which tricks system into thinking its euro update

so after comparing things do you have euro 360 dvd can you look in INDEX.TXT file and get the following values these are from update cd post on AW and imply euro verison 330

SOFIDX:0330
NAVVER:V220059E
AUDVER:A2210126

...assuming increasing the index to at least 330+ to make update to US take place then yes theoretically i should be able to again make index higher to get new US if it turns out to exist on your 040 US unit.

after looking at US 2a dvd i see the following

SOFIDX:0110
NAVVER:V222023F
AUDVER:A2220132

looking at my US 1a dvd i see

SOFIDX:0020
NAVVER:V222017B
AUDVER:A2220109


-----------------------

MY IDEA

to create update for already converted EU unit would simply require looking at 360 files and taking same pieces used previously to make an update cd what do you think?

anyways i await your findings.

thanks.

not sure if i read your email correctly.. the 2006 US DVD does not update your EU->US RNS-E, correct??.. sorry to hear that.. does it work at all??..

hopefully we can figure something out..

anxious to hear what (if any) updates it does on a 'real' US RNS-E..

Call me optimistic, but a Soft ID of 0110 sounds much better than the speculated 044 etc.

:)
I agree with that. The Audio version is at A2220132 which is one point higher than the Euro 0360 (A2210131). Not sure yet what software component is part of the Audio sw and what is part of the Navi sw but it looks promising. Let's keep the fingers crossed that we will get at least some of the features Europe got already.

Index.txt:
SOFIDX:0360
NAVVER:V220059J
AUDVER:A2210131

00.VNS:
V22000 059J

LDM.BIN:
V220059J

LOADING.KWI:
V220
059J
LDR V220059J
APL V220057B
FNT V220055A
OS V220059H

The mot file is A2210131.MOT, naming it right should start the update but may not work if the unit is already on audio sw A2210131.
