Exclamation List of Questions for a new M3 Owner

Gents...

For the unschooled like myself....

1. What version of the Professional Nav do you have? Mine is 1.0.13
2. With the voice commands I can't seem to input destination via voice whilst I am driving is that right?
3. Any recommended settings for any other features of the car?

Cheers!

1. Version 1.0.12 here. I probably won't pay the $500 to upgrade to 1.0.13 unless the new Perth / Bunbury highway is on there

2. Not sure how to input destinations via voice recognition.

3. See attached!

Definitely....DSC must be off to access S6...but be warned, you'd better be wide awake! DSC must also be off to access Launch Control, but I haven't had the balls to try that yet.

Re: point 2. Incorrect.
After pressing button, say "destination input" and should be
self explanatory from there. Need to minimise background noise
for improved accuracy.

Apparrently there is a problem with my Nav system - as it won't allow me to use voice prompts for entering the destination input.... GRRRR!!!!

Search for EQ settings on here. Made a nice change in the audio - if you have the higher end audio option. Welcome to the club btw.

No, I haven't. But I read elsewhere that the voice destination input only worked in certain countries in the world and Australia wasn't on that list. I'll have the dealers to check on the system when I get back from my holiday. I think a reflash or an update would be needed.

Yeah, fingers crossed really...

x6 - some of the guys with an M3 have the voice input working - so we should be fine - I'll let you know how I go.

Cheers
