With thanks to RasmusTJ, I retrofitted Maps and More this week to our new Move Up! I agree with Rasmus that the experience of cutting a hole in the brand new dashboard was "gut wrenching"!

One disappointing thing was that I couldn't get on-screen logos for UK radio stations to display (despite having downloaded the logo pack from Navigon).

I've solved the problem. Here's how:
<ul>[*]Using your PC/Mac explore the files on the M+M. You'll find a folder called 'logos' in the 'Mediaplayer' folder. You may need to download the logos from Navigon Fresh first.[*]This folder has the radio station logos in it (but no UK ones). Each logo is a png file of 124x118 pixels.[*]All the logos have a file name such as PI_E1_F219.png[*]The 'PI' part of the file name (which is the same for all the files) indicates that the file name refers to the RDS PI code associated with the radio station. The second part ('E1' in this case) is a country identifier. Not all countries have a unique code, but the codes are spread around Europe to avoid clashes. The UK is one of the 'E1' countries, so all UK logo files will start "PI_E1". You can find a list of the codes used by each country in Appendix G of this document (which tells you more than you ever wanted to know about RDS)[*]The last part of the file name is a hexadecimal code for the radio station. You can find the codes for UK stations here(look at the PI column in the VHF tab of the spreadsheet). For example, the code for BBC Radio 4 is C204. I presume that there are similar lists for other countries.[*]So, the file name that M+M would look for for a logo for BBC Radio 4 is PI_E1_C204.png[*]Now, all you need to do is find all the logos you need, using Google image search, and convert them all into 124x118 pixel png files (I used Photoshop Elements), name them using the rules above and copy the files to the M+M Mediaplayer\logos folder[*]It then just works![/list]Apologies if this information has been posted before, but I couldn't find it.

Reading Night Owl's post made me smile. I didn't even know radio stations have a logo and, while I understand the actual words, the sentences mean nothing to me. I am also a hammer and spanner guy.

PM me if you want me to email you the logo files that I've already made. I've done all the national stations, plus local ones for the Cardiff area. You're on your own for other local stations!

I don't have the VW Up yet, so I'm not able to reply if this works here, too.
Anyway for Italy, France, Spain, Switzerland, Austria, Greece and some other coutries, you can find the PI code here: http://www.fmlist.org/monitor.php
The interface is in italian, anyway it's pretty easy: choose the country from the list, put the name of the radio under "radio" option, and press "ricerca". You can otherwise write the name of city under "postazione", to get the list of FM radios (and their PI) available in that area.
