No new firmware now in almost a decade.  It should say 4/1-00 if the latest official release.  Numbers in the 80/90 are earlier versions 8.n and 9.n.

There are modified versions out there but these are unofficial and can cause language pack issues.  Only the map discs are updated now.
:type: Never anthropomorphise computers. They hate that.

I love this forum!

Recently purchased a 2003 (53 plate) E53 with the wide screen satnav - still running the original 4/12 firmware that it cam with when new 14 years ago.

If it's any encouragement to others with older ones - this updated beautifully to the latest v.32 firmware (4/00).  Took about 4 minutes to do, and was seamless.  I now have postcode lookup which I didn't before etc etc, and most pleasingly now have the 3D perspective view too!  (took a minute to find the hidden menu to enable that, but well pleased with the result - looks loads better)

That and a nice shiny DVD with the 2017 map updates, and I'm very pleased to have brought a 14yr old car right up to date!
