I have a 2001 740i Sport with the newer navigation system (with the larger display and female voice & no TV option in the menu), can I still get TV on my GPS? Does anyone know?

Thanks.


I tried the hack to get the TV on the NAV screen to activate and it worked on the first try. But the reception is pretty porr, and I'm only about 7 miles from the towers.

Any ideas on how to improve reception? It's basically all static audio with occasional clear spots, and the video is quite fuzzy and black/white.

Here's the link for the hack. Thanks a ton to the author!!
