Hello all. Straight to the point, I installed the mkIV nav in my 04 rover quite some time ago and decided to keep the old one as a just in case replacement. The thing is, it is just sitting in storage collecting dust and I thought I would try to sell it. The thing of it is, I cannot find anyone that wants to buy it. Tried ebay, craigslist, etc and no successful hits. Is anyone on this board interested, or does anyone on this board know someone who would be interested? Thanks for anyone's time!:)

Do you want to sell the CDs for the MKIII?

Probably Not. I would like to keep the cds packaged with the nav unit.

I am definitely interested in selling my MK3 Nav module and discs as well, if anyone is interested.

check out http://www.roverupgrades.com/Range_Rove ... ation.html
Best stealth upgrade for navigation on the 2003-2004 Range Rover only. A MUST have.
Can't disagree with that, best and probably quickest and easiest too. :dance:

1 - ONE dvd for the whole of N America
2 - Much much much quicker
3 - Perspective view
4 - Split screen display

Downside - minor but if you get one off ebay you'll most likely have BMW splash screen and female voice, you can change both if you can find the patched firmware or patch it yourself. Get one from bimmernav and it will have the rr splash screen.

Gents,

I feel stupid about this but I have to ask. Is the picture below that of the MK4 (the BMW DVD Nav) upgrade mentioned?



If so then I've stuck a jackpot with this as in that the previous owner of my car must have done the upgrade because that is the picture of the system in my RR.

I have a 2005 RR and the Navigation head unit in the left read compartment doesn't look like the one in the above picture. Mine is the DVD version with the LOCK slide. I see the type above are selling for around $500 on eBay. Is there a reason to upgrade and what would the benefits be. (I am using the disk - Land Rover part # YIW500023 and could upgrade the disk to the # YIW500024 for $50)

We are only talking about the 2003-2004 BMW manufactured L322 Land Rover Range Rover which uses the iBus communication network.

The 2005 Range Rover version uses the M.O.S.T. network which is fiber optic and not iBus. You are not able to upgrade the navigation and furthermore Ford made no provisions for upgrades to the firmware for the navigation. What ya see is what ya got.

This has been covered many time so search will bring up several threads on the subject.

Thanks Marc. :dance:

This news has made my day even though I found out about this because I received the newer CDs (version 2007.1)I ordered from Navteq. I found a BMW On-Board Nav System DVD ROM (2007.1) in the drive of the DVD Nav but the system doesn't seem to be able to read it because each time I inserted it, the Nav system came up with "no CD/DVD can be found." Is that the right DVD?

The newer LR MK3 CDs (2007.1) that came in the mail from Navteq works fine and I even set the Nav system to use the perspective mode for display. :)

There are two differant types of BMW nav DVD's, the Professional and High edition. You could have the wrong one with your drive. Now you can check the current version of firmware and update the firmware if needed.

1. You can learn a lot more about the MK4 navigation system here: http://www.xoutpost.com/electronics/navigation-system/ it is very interesting to see all of the changes the guys at the BMW forum have done, like night mode, and voice activated points of interest.

2 and next you will want to download NavCoder here: http://www.siegenthaler.co.nz/NavCoder/

3. and then navTweek to write your own custom firmware: http://www.xoutpost.com/electronics/nav ... tweak.html

4. then http://www.pimp-my-nav.com/ to custom modify the Points of Interest on you DVD nav data disks, like adding red light cameras and speed cameras

5. then you will also want to order the Resler iBus interface http://www.reslers.de/IBUS/index.html so you can connect your laptop to your Range Rover and modify the language (I added Russian for fun) and change settings in to Light Control Module to accept LED bulbs, etc

You will really begin to appreciate the work the guys at BMW did to improve the Range Rover.

WARNING: If you have an MK3 Range Rover CD based navigation and perform any of these upgrades or modifications your unit
WILL NOT WORK ANYMORE!

Situation update:

Since the discovery that I had the MK4 DVDROM Nav (which was due to the arrival of the 2007.1 Maps I got from Navteq for my car that I had thought was still equipped with the old MK3) the CDs from Navteq work fine but the BMW 2007.1 DVD ROM I found in the system from the previous owner wouldn't work. It kept coming up with the message as "no cd/dvd in the drive." I

I burnt an image of a friends BMW DVDROM 2008.1 on a DVD-R & a DVD+R disk and both wouldn't work either. I made a CD copy of the CD 5 (LR CD 2007.1 from Navteq) and the copy wouldn't play in the MK4 but when I reinserted the original CD5 2007.1 from Navteq, that works.

After my discovery yesterday that I had an MK$, I called Navteq to ask if I could return the disk in exchange for the BMW DVD ROM 2009.1 (which according to Bimmernav is the latest disk that works with the MK4) since I had an MK4 and they fine but I'm now concerned that it might not work when I get it.

Gents, what do you think might be the case here and what would you advice I do? Keep the LR 2007.1 CDs since those work or exchange for the BMW 2009.1 DVD ROM? Also why isn't my MK4 playing DVDROMs?
