Red triangle indicator light

Hi,

I have a 2008 528i. Can someone tell me what it means when there is a red triangle with an explanation point that appears on the dash.

Thanks

I installed it a few months ago. I have had no problems. The only regret I have is that I didn't install it a year ago when I first bought the car. Let us know how you like it if you get one.

I just took my car in for an oil change and brake service. I don't know if they hooked the car up to a computer or not, but I left in my sprint booster and know one said a word.

Where do you get a new Nav disc? I asked the dealer and they said they don't have them. They gave me the name of a company called NAVTEQ that I should contact.
