CJGREEN, I did not understood your last post. However, just try another sdcard (4GB-8GB preferable):
1. Extract rar file and copy only the NWD_703 folder to the SD card
2. Turned key to position one and turned on head unit (make sure no sd card is in the GPS slot)
3. Insert SD card in the GPS slot and leave the unit on:
a)Turn key off, wait 10 seconds or 20,
b)turn key back to position one and turn unit back on, let it read the SD card.
4.It will load about four steps, then it should restart itself. Calibrate the touch screen per the instructions.
5. Remove the SD card and hit reset. If you will use same SD card for your GPS maps, make sure to delete NWD_703 folder or the update process will start every time.

You may want to check this http://www.e46zone.com/forum/topic/4...mware-upgrade/ skip to step #4 and you don't need to disconnect anything as stated in that step, just turn key to off wait 10-20 secs and turn key on and unit on.

Carlos,

I meant I have tried various different size sd cards. The problem I am having is the files aren't copying onto the sd - fullstop. I've not even got round to being able to try and install the firmware update as I've not had the files copy onto the sd card yet.

Hi Rebel158, yes, you are right, it only sync the screen of your phone to the head unit but you cannot control it. Thanks

Its working fine now thanks to help from 891Carlos.

Although seem to have a glitch playing music from an SD card in the slot. It gets so far and then flicks off and goes back to radio?

Hi CJGREEN, for the issue you mentioned, please kindly confirm what is the format of the music file,since the head unit can only work with MP3. Meanwhile, please kindly change SD card or songs to have a try. Thank you

And guys, here i have a question for you.

Many of our customers asked if we can provide a detailed installation manual and also if we have operation manual in other languages.
What do you think if we provide you VIDEOS of installation guide and ONLINE manuals in different languages, rather than the normal paper manual we used to do? It means we will not put operation manual in the package
Welcome to share with us your valuable opinions here. Itís always important for us to move ahead! Thanks a lot!

I have question about video format from SD card. I tried to run mp4 and avi and I have only audio. There is a message that codec is wrong. What type of video format is supported?

I had the same issue, I did some testing of my own with different formats and only a couple were playable, while most were not and that codec not supported appeared every time. What I did was I converted a couple videos to xvid and reduce the size to 720x480, that worked on every video I tried.

I contacted Eonon regarding this, they mention to reduce quality and size for MP4 to be payable. Since what I did worked, I didn't bother anymore.

Hi mlukasz, what Carlos suggested is totally right, our unit can only support the standard definition mp4,avi, etc. But canít support high definition ones. Just try what Carlos told you, thanks a lot!

Carlos, many thanks for your help!

Hi, I will be purchasing this HU in the next week or so.
I have a couple of questions:
1. If I get the unit without maps included, it won't come with an sd card?
2. Can I still install iGO Primo if I don't get the maps and get my own sd card (if its not included)?
3. Has anyone here installed the unit themselves? is it really plug and play, and no rewiring necessary?
4. So if order it through the GB link, it will be shipped right away? Or do i need to wait til a certain number of people order the unit?

rant: I've read that the orange led color does not perfectly match the oem orange, whats up with this?! isnt this unit custom made for the e46?
