Issues with 6WB DKombi retrofit - help needed

Hi guys, I have recently installed the F30 6WB and after VO coding it and my NBT_EVO2 (retrofitted last year, flashed to my vehicle vin, no emulator), it works for the most part except for the following issues [all solved]

1. The digital cluster does not show the gear selection under the tachometer. e.g.no display of PRNS anywhere on the cluster. - solved by VO coding DKombi with factory FA production code.

2. NBT_EVO2 Nav stopped working - when I entered the Navigation page, it prompted me with the following "Connect USB device with correct activation code to start navigation" - solved by getting NBT_EVO2 seller to send me the FSC code that originally came with the head unit.


Steps I have taken:
1. Inject CAFD into DKOMBI
2. Read VO -> Edit VO -> Remove 6WA, Add 6WB -> Calculate FP -> VO CODE NBT_EVO2 and DKOMBI

My car is a March 2012 F30, but due to NBT_EVO2 retrofit last year, the production date in the VO was changed to 0716. So I used this production date to VO code both DKombi and NBT_EVO2. Also tried changing the production date to 0717 and 0615 then VO code. None of them manage to bring up the gear selection. And in the process, I think the Nav FSC also got broken, resulting in problem #2.

Any help on solving these two issues are greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Update - fixed issue #1 by VO coding with factory FA production code
Looks like when VO coding with various FA production code, it has inadvertently broke the FSC in my NBT_EVO2. Any idea how to fix this? Thanks.

Maybe you can get in touch with shawnsheridan and get the newest maps.

It should come with a new FSC code.

I'm not an expert in the field. Just a thought.

Update - fixed #2 the map issue by getting the NBT_EVO seller to send me the FSC code that originally came installed with the head unit. Also thanks to shawnsheridan for his advice via PM.
