Yeah please give a try to Waze; if enough wazers are on road/route you take, you may get some feedback. Otw the FM channels is the only live road/traffic update

Just received an MMI VX140s premium in the mail. It has version 8 maps and something know as a black edition. What is that?

Also, does one need to register the device with MMI on their website for warranty / guarantee reasons?

That is the Mireo Black Edition navigation software (http://www.mireo.hr/en/), which uses the MMI maps. MMI VX140 is a generic China-made PND (Personal Navigation Device) with Mireo software and MMI maps. 'Maps' are not software - they are data used by Navigation software.

Yes, you should register your details on the MMI site. It will enable them to send you update notifications.

How is the Mireo black edition software compared to other navigation softwares? Is it good? or just about average?

There is nothing good or bad about it. It has been around for more than 10 years now. Pretty stable and has all the practically usable features one needs.

I recently bought a MMI LX340. Is it worth buying and updating the maps with premium content or with the latest maps?

Even i too got this 159-page Karnataka maps sometime back. It's a useful gift.

I am using Vx140 from 4 years now. Initially map version was v4, latter in 2011 I'd upgraded to v6. Did anybody try an upgrade to 8.1 recently? I am planning to upgrade to 8.1.

Thanks for the information, kavu75. Even I have to upgrade to version 8.1 as I have subscribed for 2-year upgrade plan, 8.1 being the second of the 4 upgrades. As usual, MMI did not bother to send the data files on their own. I came to know about it from your post only. Just now, I sent mail requesting for map and licence files for version 8.1.

It's probably going to be a matter of time,before the navigation devices from MMI come equipped with a data connection with the express purpose of providing real time traffic for chosen route, and possibly even intelligent routing-besides much much more.
While other configurations are possible (e.g. traffic data exchange between navigator and phone over bluetooth, or letting the customer have control on which CSPs SIM can be used ) that may not be the chosen way - simply because of the revenue potential exclusive partnerships bring to the company (think of product offer flashing on your Navigator from map POIs as one drives past a mall)

This is already happening for smartphones and this is probably going to act as a catalyst to bring the convergence of in-car navigation/entertainment and data in such mass-market GPS/HU units.

I am facing a peculiar issue with my MMI LX340. It seems to work fine for the first half an hour after starting it. Then it starts making a continuous and irritating "click, click click" sound,(its the same click sound that one can hear when selecting something on the touchscreen). Has anyone faced such an issue with their MMI navigator models?

I have given it for checkup at MMI authorised service center in Mangalore. Thankfully, it is still under warranty. The MMI guy said it could be a motherboard issue and if it is, it might take time to replace the motherboard.
