    Need help on language change.

    Good morning.
    I have a friend in Canary Islands that owns a 2.002 year BMW 320 Compack Turbo Diesel.
    The problem he have is that only have available English and German languages in the Navigator.
    He need Spanish in the navigator and don't know how to change it.
    He told me that in configuration menu can reed: SW-3-1/41
    I don't know if this is all you need to help me or need anything else.

    Can you pleasse tell me the procedure and software necesary to have Spanish language available to change it?
    I supose he needs aditional software but I don't know how to found it and the correct procedure to explain him how to do the job.

    Thanks a lot in advance,
    Santiago.

    You can burn a cd from this image and use it to update the system
    It can also be used to change the language settings
    All questions should be directed through the forum

    If Your friend wants to change the language, unless software update given by Gazo he must use Navcoder to code the navigation comp with different language. Or go to BMW service .

    Navcoder is only one from the possibilities, my friend. INPA ie one of the other solutions.

    Re: Need help on language change.

    Good afternoon.
    As you told me, my friend in Canary Islands, download the V.32 soft update and save it on a Cd as per intrucctions.
    At the begining a message in navigator screen shows some like "Actualizing Software" (my friend do not understand english too much). Black screen and I think, the software was loading. Some flash in white and black at screen.
    15 minutes and same thing... Black screen. No message at screen any time except at the begining of the software load.
    I seems like the unit have problems to eject the cd after finish the software load because of the tipical sound wen it try to eject and can't do that.
    30 minutes and same thing.
    The cd do not eject aumatictly nor manualy.

    Maybe there is a problem in the cd unit, but I need to know if there a future problem in the software upgrade or in the navigator unit due to the malfuncion ejecting the cd and how to solve it to have the navigator full functional working again... Until today, the secreen still black.

    My friend is trying to reload the new v.32 soft again with a new disc but it seems that do no work to have again the navigator works like before to load the software.
    The unit have a sticker in the back that sows the following: BMW 65.90 - 6 920 758 Phillips 22SY591/23E HW:1.1/SW:4.10 Manufactured 2002

    Any help is welcome.

    Thanks a lot,
    Santiago.

    So, to eject cd you need unplug navigation unit, next plug in and push button. it's first. Next you need download software v27 to bmw (and you have the navigator full functional working again). To change language use inpa or navcoder or make a special cd who can change language for example GB to S.

    Re: Need help on language change.

    v31 and v32 both contain the same software for the MKx series. v32 only contains new soft for the windows based idrive junk. your problem is derived from an improper copy of v32. for mk1 mk2 and mk3 you need to have the update disc in mode2form1 format. if the disc is in mode1 format the result is black screen (the unit cant (re)boot from a mode1 disc). the mk4 is exceptional it is happy with a mode1 update disc too..
