    Hi Guys, Wonder if anyone can give me any input regarding problems I am experiencing with MK3 nav in a 2001 E38. Basically the drive wont display anything on the screen, with the exception of a backlit black screen from time to time. Most of the time the TV tuner takes command of the screen...

    Hi All, I am a newbie to the forum (see intro :)) and I was looking for some help on a sat nav problem. After reading a lot of the posts on various sites including on here, I stumped up the cash for a MK4 unit to replace my slightly dated looking MK3 CD based unit. I thought it was a case of...
