Sorry, I haven't been on for a fair while. Did I miss something cause I thought I was using the latest firmware and the 'mode' button cycles through the modes on mine. It doesn't go straight to the circular function selection screen.
The firmware showing on the 'aux press 9 screen' is ZH2010-10-09.

I'd like the mode button to take me to the function screen, so did I miss a firmware update?

I am in a similar situation I upgraded my v5 firmware to bet the BMW start screen but now my mode cycles instead of going to main screen. Is this not the most current firmware? Can I have the BMW startup and still have mode go to the circle of inputs?

There is a newer firmware. Ask your dealer or Jeff.

I would like to see and hear a Dynavin before I order one. Is anyone near New York, Queens/Nassau County that would be kind enough to let me come and see it? Thanks.

EVERYONE STOP "UPGRADING" YOUR FIRMWARE.... over the last few weeks it is starting to become an issue....

look at the dates on those posts about the upgraded firmware, they are from last October and November.....

If you install that, you are installing old firmware. Firmware updates were released to fix specific issues, there was an update last November and another one this march. The units are shipped with the current firmware so If you dont know specifically why you are doing it, dont.

If you have reason to think you need to, contact your dealer for confirmation.

I know I am somewhat responsible for this as I have a link in the FAQ, Ive asked a mod to remove it. It made sense at the time but is no longer relevant.

Ooooops! I bought my V5 from Jason here in Melbourne Australia in May2011, then upgraded with the Dynavin V5 (sunplus) firmware BMW logo 201010.rar which gave me the BMW logo. What functions have I now upset?

My mode button switches between 'Radio' if I have that on and the selection screen. It does not 'cycle'.

Sorry Jeff as you are my dealer I'll ask you directly. Which firmware allows the mode button to take you to the circular function screen? i haven't downgraded the firmware to anything older than when I received the system from you as far as I can remember.
I guess the question for me is should the 'latest' fw allow the mode switch to jump directly to the circular function screen or cycle between the various modes...?

Graeme

edit...oh and for the most part I'm still very happy... the mode cycling is just an annoyance. I was just yesterday showing the system off and everyone that saw it were suitably impressed.

Guys, got few questions plz.

First for you Jeff, which backup camera are you including with the Dynavin? I ordered one along with the unit, but been reading that some of these cameras that go in instead of the license plate light do not fit the the convertible trunks even with the modifications... is that correct for the camera included with the unit as well?

Second, for all you guys that have the stock Navi and the CD changers that switched to Dynavin, since there's no reason to keep either the nav computer and the changer, but taking them out leaves empty spaces... what did you do there? Are there replacement storage bins that go there or something like that?

Thanks

yes the newer firmware goes to the source selection screen instead of cycling souces.

Thanks
Actually I cannot confirm the fit on a vert but I assume it isnt a problem as I have sold a lot of this camera and haven't heard of anyone having a problem, but I also have not personally installed one in a vert so I cant positively confirm its fit. Most of the fit issues are because the other cameras have big backsides that stick back into the light housing, the dynavin cameras that I sell are just a lens with a camera, NOTHING sticks back into the light housing. So as long as the lens is the same size there shouldn't be any issues with fit.

Any update to this? Does the US DVN-E46 support FM TMC (licencing aside) is the hardware included?

they can be ordered that way, I dont deal with them typically as we dont really use TMC here but I suppose the UK dealers might....

Can you please explain the setup? It looks like a TMC with GPS over USB? But I can't find anything detailed enough to confirm in the videos/threads I've searched out.

actually I dont really know much about it as we dont use it, I just know that they are available, There are TMC settings in the iGO menus so I assume it is part of the nav program.

maybe one of the European guys could chime in here....
