Hi all

I am unable to update the software on the M & M because of a software incompatibility with Navigon Fresh. Apparently there is a problem with MAC OS 10.6.0 & above. I have checked the Q&A re this on the web page & it says the only way to get round the problem is to update the firmware by downloading a file onto a micro SD card in FAT format. I haven't a clue what to buy - does anyone know of this problem or solved it themself?

It's a very unusual thing these days to find incompatibility with Mac OS so I am very surprised at this frustrating problem!

Thanks for your help (if you can!)

It's useful to have a Micro SD card anyway, as it can also be used for storing music on the M + M. Go forSandisk orKingston, as they are reliable.

There is another way of installing the software on a Mac, but this involves rebooting as a PC using Boot Camp or similar.

And Navigon haven't done themselves many favours in the extremely poor implementation of their update software. It works, but it took them many months to do so, and so far, only using a beta version.

I share your frustration..!!

<div style="text-align: left; : rgb251, 251, 253; ">Navigon Fresh (the update app) willONLYwork on Macs up to OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)..!! If you have OS X 10.7 (Lion) or 10.8 (Mountain Lion) you're flat out of luck!
