You can go to the manufacture's website if you wish to update this device. You can update maps and software.

For reset you can you hold the bottom right or top left corner and turn on the GPS until you get the message "Do you really want to erase all user data?
Select yes.

Some have a pin sized reset button on the back.

Or you can download the reset utility here:

This sounds like a setting found in the OPTIONS or SETTINGS portion of your MENU. As the "Safe Driving" banner implies, the voice has been muted. I use a TOM-TOM system which has voice adjusting capabilities. Most likely someone found the voice annoying and shut it down or someone did not want you to be distracted by the voice feature.

This is a little thing to fix and if you can not reprogram it, a BMW Dealer may do a Courtesy fix to build a Relationship with you.

I hope my solution is helpful.

STOP THIEVES by reprogramming your "home" into your GPS

Breaking news in the ongoing battle against crime involves your GPS and your garage door opener. Many thieves are now breaking into cars and stealing both the GPS and the garage door remote. Their motive: turn on the GPS and push the "home" feature. The GPS will then lead the thief to your home where the garage door opener will provide access to your garage and if it is attached, to your home.

THE FIX: Reprogram your GPS so that "HOME" takes you to a restaurant near your home or to a police station near your home. At least that way, the thief will not know where you live.

Many cars are broken into these days because owners are not aware of how desperate many thieves have become. The prize is often the GPS which sells on the street for $100.00 or more. Do not leave your GPS in sight when you park your car, do not use a windshield mount which leaves a tell-tale ring on your windshield, and do not use a plastic disk stuck to your dash [all signals to a thief that there is a GPS hidden somewhere in the vehicle]. The best idea is to keep your GPS and your garage door remote both locked up in your trunk whenever you park your car. Regards, Joe

Someone I don't know is driving by and opening my garage door.My unit is a Craftsman 1/2 HR --- 41A5021-2D --- FCCIDHBW1127 purchased 4/99. How do I change the code? I have a remote in my car, a...

Sandy, if you grab a step ladder and look on the back of the unit away form the garage door, there should be instructions on how to erase the existing codes and reprogram the opener. I think you press and hold the red button for 6 seconds or so...until the little yellow LED light goes off. This erases the codes. Then press the garage door opener remote button and hold the red button at the same time until the light goes off. This reprograms your remote.
