That pic looks cool.

DRL is Daytime Running Lights, the angel eyes stuff on the 750s. I don't know CRL.

Not to stray from the current suck an egg direction, to the OP, do you have anything in mind? Do you have a picture of what you want it to look like?

I have a '14, and I guess the Xenon is not as white as the LED angel eyes. I wouldn't call them yellow, though.

Yeah, I don't recall what vintage I had in my '09 750 originally. I had the dealer upgrade it in 2010 in the hopes it would be better, but it was not. As I said previously, there are 2 types, CIC...

I had the 2010 on my '09 750, and the 2013 on my '14. In three years there is a noticeable difference.

It's not the year per se, but the type. I don't think the CIC showed traffic flow (green/yellow/red), only the route. But, it's been over a year since I had it so maybe I'm wrong.

Upgrade to 2015-1 Map Not Impressive

I recently did a very successful upgrade, thanks to Baccus, to the 2015-1 Next map. However, after installing it (I had the 2013-1 map in my 2014 750), I don't see a big bump, actually even a small...

Sorry to refresh this thread, but things changed. A year ago or so, '70' was displayed in my HUD and the speed limit signs said '75'. (The limit on that stretch of road had recently been increased...

Thanks, gassy. I'm glad you got it sorted out for a reasonable price. I hope to never have to replace one, but based on what you said I'm confident that I can do it.

On my '14 750 the lines don't seem so thick. Perhaps it's due to screen size. However, the lines are only as useful as the feed from the local whatever that feeds it. I've driven into some red...

I don't know about that, but they are certainly heated. While I don't get much ice here in Houston, I do get a lot of condensation when I leave at O early 30 in the morning. I'd hate to lose that.
