Silver Black Disabling Warning Screen on Navigation System

Does anyone know if there is a way to disable, or automatically bypass that annoying warning that comes up EVERY time you start the engine? It would be nice if I could just hit ACCEPT once.

Thanks!!

Yep, move out of America and buy a MINI with nav in another country where fear of litigation doesn't mean you get warning stickers and prompts over everything you buy.

Sorry, that wasn't very helpful... I don't actually know the answer I'm afraid.

From what I have heard, there is no way in the US to remove warning.

PMSL.....


Blame the litiguous nature of the USA..... I love the fact that whenever I get into my car, I am greeted with the MINI logo on the screen. Kind of like my car saying hello, where do you want to go today?

I bet you would prefer that the airbag warning sticker on the sunvisor wasn't there too, right? We dont get that over here either.


Seriously though, the short answer is "No, you gotta learn to live with it"

There are a couple ways to remove it:

1) BMW-accept module:

http://www.bmw-accept.com

This is a $100 module that plugs into the CD changer hook-up in the boot of the car and automatically sends a signal to remove the accept screen each time you start your car. The only downfall is that you can't have a CD changer installed to use it.

2) Downgrade and then upgrade your nav computer's firmware (e.g. if you have v24 on your nav system now, then downgrade it to v22.1 and then upgrade it back up to v24, v24.1, or v25). Doing this will place the unit into "no location" mode and will remove the accept screen as a byproduct of being in this mode. The only real downfall to doing this is that your nav routing will be given in yards instead of in feet. If you can live with that, then it's fine. I did this to one of my MINIs and it worked just great (and yes, you still see the MINI logo when you first open your car door). However, make sure that it's really what you want to do before doing it as only the dealer can reprogram the system back to the way that it was.

There's lots of discussion to be found on this one over on NAM if you use the search function.

I hope this helps some...

you could always buy a V1 radar detector and stealth one module seemingly this automatically presses the accept button for you
dont know how practical this is cost wise
maybe if you were looking for a radar detector this might be an answer??

OK, I have done this on my 06. Be advised that it will also reset the system to UK mode meaning that you lose feet and get yards but it will remove the acceptance screen.

http://www.x5world.com/index.php

On this link, there is a navigation system. One of them will give you instructions on how to do this. All you simply do is roll back to an older firmware version and then to the latest and you are all set. V26 is the latest version for the MKIV system. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you read all the material you can BEFORE messing with the system. If you mess it up, you could end up with a 1700 Dollar paperweight.
