Hmmm, could be on the verge. The best way is to look at the player (under the seat). If you see a DVD logo on it, then you have an MK4 if not, it is an MK3.

You can also go into the menu and go to the settings screen. In the upper right hand corner you will see some letters and numbers. If you see SW-3 then it is an MK3 and takes only CD's. If you see SW-4 than then you have an MK4 and use either. Hope this helps.

Help is here!

Okay guys, sorry for the delay in getting some files up.

Unfortunately, I can't put everything up that you need; the camera database actually costs money now (only 2) so it would not be legal for me to provide the files. You can purchase the database here.

That said, I've done most of the hard work.

Firstly, you need to use UltraISO or something similar to save your original navigation DVD to an image on your hard drive. Once you have done this, you will need to perform a couple of steps described here (scroll down to "POIConverter" and do from there onwards). The converter program requires a password to unzip, and you will need to make a donation to Lupito, the author, to get this.

Once you have performed this step successfully, you should find that you have a 0079.IDX and 0080.URL file. Now download the files I have provided here. Once you have done this, you have all the files necessary to modify the DVD.

Open the image that you saved with UltraISO, and replace I have given the directories that these files need to go in. The 0079.IDX and 0080.URL files need to go in /TPD/nccBeu_eu_20060126/ENG/TABLES/0/.

Now save the image, then burn a new DVD using the image using something like Nero.

If you have any problems, let me know and I'll try and help you out. Please remember that Lupito is the guy that wrote the guide and I have only followed it. He really deserves all of the credit!

S33BBY,

The 2006-2 DVD disc, is it the Europe proffesional or Europe high version that will work in the mini?

Also, will it work with the 2006-1 disc ?

Will the nav voice give a warning when a camera is coming up?

Thanks for posting this info, very much apprceiated!

Steve

I'm pretty sure it's the Europe high version, but don't quote me on that! I'll have a look on the DVD a little later.

Cool, a sticky, thanks.

I must mention again that I have only followed the hard work of Lupito at http://poi.ravestation.net/mkiv/index.html and it is him that deserves the credit, though I hope the files I've put up help people work through the guide, which can be a little difficult as it is translated from Spanish.

To download the database from pocketGPSWorld, what SatNav system should I select? And if you have any other pointers please tell. Any more help would be much appreciated.

Do you have to select a system? I haven't downloaded the database for a while, but I thought it just shows you which systems it is compatible with (and you can click one to find out more information), but there is only one database you can buy.

S33BBY,

It would be cool if we could also integrate France and other european countries speed camera locations, is this possible and easy enough to do? Is there a guide somewhere?

Glad this is a sticky seeing as it is a safety topic afterall.

S33BBY this seems like amazing work, u must have spent ages!
I picked up my 06MCS last week, it has OEM satnav, but i am SOOOOO useless at it. there is a CD or DVD in my glove box which i havent even looked at. I dont even know how to change my map to look like urs, and i certainly had no idea u could show info about petrol stations, and speed cameras on the map!!!

im so bad with my Nav i dont think im making full use of it.
any tips u can give me? e.g. just general cool features that u think is gd?

You could do this 2 ways. Firstly, you could combine the databases before using Lupito's converter. You could do this while they're still in OV2 format, or once you've converted them to ASC format. Either way, just combine the data into a single file before using the converter. Then whether you are in the UK or France, for example, the cameras will display.

Alternatively, add another entry in the ENG.LSC, using a unique number; 105 would seem logical. Do exactly what you did for the UK safety cameras, remembering to add 105 to the correct group as well as 104. You could call 104 "UK cameras" and 105 "France cameras" for example, then just select the French ones when you're in France, and so on.

If I haven't explained this well or you'd like some help achieving this, feel free to drop me a PM.

Firstly, I must just say that the hard work was done by Lupito. That's not to say following the guide was easy, but he deserves the credit.

You'll find the DVD drive underneath the driver's seat. You can access the disc via a pull-off panel from behind the seat (i.e. the back of the car).

If you want your interface to look like mine, you need to enable perspective mode. To do this, enter the settings menu (press menu then click on set). Once inside this menu, hold down the menu button for about 8 seconds or until you notice the screen change to service mode. Scroll down to perspective mode and enable it. Now exit service mode by pressing menu, then select GPS navigation. Press the knob in, scroll to pointer direction and select perspective.

As far as points of interest go, you can enable these by going to destination input, scrolling down to information, selecting information on city or information on location, and taking it from there; it's that easy.

If you've got anymore nav issues, feel free to drop me a PM.
