    Re: Sat Nav - can you upgrade ? - update

    Well now I have even seen upgrades to the new hard drive based iDrive including SATNAV. One recently documented on a E6x five series but electronics wise all the same as the 6 series. About $3k in the US including a coding update from a person in Europe that is done with your own laptop connected (cable provided in the coding update cost) to vehicle. If you are starting from no NAV at all I suspect this might be the way to go for the most bang for the buck. If you need more details I can provide a link or possibly an email address.

    BMW are doing a deal in the UK for European satnav, its 120 for a 2010 DVD that slots straight in.

    Anything is possible, but it is expensive althoug hI am also told there are some large displays being sold on ebay. Here in the US all 6ers come with SAT NAV as standard, so I assume you are elsewhere in the world.

    Electronics wise and probably display wise the e60 (5 series) is identical and I know of several UK and other EURO based folks that have done the upgrade I believe but I will go take a look and see if I can get more details.
