Hi to all,

Finally I changed my car on S-Max, because had a sedan MK4
(it's specific for Russia, we have a Ford factory which assembly sedans only),
so and a price on it is cheaper than other shapes ~5000-7000EUR
but it really not funny for family. But I've got a car with China headunit,
which was changed on Ford Blaupunkt NX (aka FORD MCA NX) immediately with map on SD-card.

So a time comes for making this HU a little bit better.

First step is done: my Blau NX can eat any copy of original cards =)

I've found SD card from my old HP PocketPC.
copied latest Russia maps V5 (2015) content

patched latest update for Blau and it works!
Blau activated the card and navy works

coming update for Blau NX with DVD cards...

P.S. Move this topic in other forum section if I get it wrong.

Hi Alexey . . .

I presume the move to an S-Max was due to an increase in family size :biggrin:

Out of interest do you intend to change the colour scheme to match your converse update?

Wow! I would absolutely love to be able to load a custom firmware on to my DVD NX (prefacelift) that gives me functionality such as bluetooth track info! Reckon that's possible?

Sorry I got ahead of myself there, does this mean for the DVD based NX theoretically we can get the Climate control "pop up" regardless of whichever screen we're on and the radio mute button?

I am very excited about this! Obviously I'll be willing to pay for a feature-enhancing firmware update :)

I thought it already did this?
The pre-facelift one (DVD, not SD) doesn't.

sounds bad, I thought all Bla has it.
So in TODO now.

PS. guys, can anyone share me original DVD map image, iso is preferred.
Would a Europe 2013 map DVD be any use? I can rip it to ISO for you if that'd help.

Bluetooth streaming track info would be absolutely awesome!

How about mp3 album art? Can it be displayed?

Don't know if the bluetooth module sends this info.

If it is not present, perhaps the later facelift/focus3 modules can do it?

Also got another idea: A fix for TMC in Great Britain.

I believe the tmc data for Great Britain is not present on navi discs later than 2013.

Maybe you can also make a fix when you use the DVD-NX in combination with the facelift Convers+ (the dimming problem).

For example: a extra button in the display menu to select you have a facelift convers+, wich defeats the default 2 step dimming in combination with the 1412 convers+

just some thoughts

Brilliant news Alex! I really want the dark colour scheme on the Navi to match the Convers+, getting rid of the "responsible driver" message would be great as well :)
How's Fatherhood treating you?

Alex, this is fantastic.

I also would like the dark colour scheme , like the converse+.

I can't wait to see more of this.

Great work :banana2:

Just bought and received a Mondeo NX Blau for development.

So now the process will be more productive.

A Blau MCU looks like very good a ARM9 dual-core CPU with DSP on board.

It has hardware acceleration for JPEG, H.264.

64Mb flash is used for NX/MCA and 32Mb for FX firmware.

Damn Blaupunkt didn't do normal software with video player and so.

I don't know why they didn't SD-card playback for MCA headunit.
