Re: How do I get this thing working !!!

That is what i did to get a newer map.
I can send you a map and the igo software in a zip file that you just unzip to a memory card.
pm me your email address if you want it.

Re: How do I get this thing working !!!

Mine came with full service history and a folder full of recipes but nothing at all about the head unti.

Re: How do I get this thing working !!!

My 320d came with a similar unit but no instructions.
It's a case of pressing buttons and see what happens they are not hard to work.

Is it to hold the spare wheel cover (boot floor) up when you would get the wheel out.

Re: E63 650i - Services Reset Functions

You got into the hidden menu.
Do a google on it and you will find all the functions.

Re: 650i E63 - Battery Charge

I went straight to the boot this morning and got 12V, 14V with engine running. Not sure what difference the sleep mode makes, only that it may be drawing a small current?
