  • Firmware upgrade for TravelPilot EX???

    I understood that nobody can copy the TravelPilot E cd.
    Is the firmware update included in the navi cd/dvd or on another cd/dvd.
    My TravelPilot EX is from 2005.
    Thanks in advance.

    If you really are teh owner of a TraelPilot EX navigation it is rather silly to ask whether the update can be on a DVD!

    The operating software is included on the TravelPilot-E cd
    And you have understood correctly that there is no way to copy a TP-E cd

      I bought the car few months ago from Germany. I do not have a cd or a manual unfortunately.
      I've heard about people having their phone connected through bluetooth with this system. Mine doesnt have a BT menu, so I thought that a firmware upgrade will solve that. Can u help me with more info about this system please?

        I can assure you that you can't do anything with this piece of rubbish!
        You can play audio cd's, navigate or listen to radio. There is no bluetooth facility. That's all
        You can only use original TravelPilot E cd's since these cannot be copied.
        And in case you wonder, you cannot replace the unit with anything else since the size is 1.7 DIN and no other unit will fit into the dash.
        An adaptor piece is available from some sellers enabling a 1 DIN unit to be fitted
        Forget the **** and take a PND which comes cheaper than even one CD!

            Just some thoughts of me:

            - In these devices the BT isn't fitted-in, it was an option that time (an extra BT modul was installed in the car). Only the Blaupunkt HSRNS (aka. Blaupunkt NX) has built-in BT.
            - AFAIK (http://fordnavigation.fw.hu) the TPEX devices are 2DIN size, so it can be replaced by any double din multimedia system (or there are "noname" Ford-like satnavs)
