Hello,
what is the "chip mode" in the navi diagnostic ?

I'm not sure what you mean. The 2005 & up STS require an external code reader.

The nav system has a secret back door into the functions of the nav

Hello,
in the navi-mod you must press "menu" an than for 10 sec in the the top mittle.
Than you enter the code "9448" and you are in the diagmostic...

Yes, that's the one. It still doesn't override the features locked-out while in motion or provide diagnostic codes. I think the only real value is reading the firmware levels.

It does give an owner a way to disable the Nav!:bang2:
