View Full Version : NAV and a 5 speed bad combo?

At one time I thought I read a thread about a car that was ordered with a 5 speed and Nav. The jist was that this was a bad combination because using the Nav and the 5 speed would be too challenging....like using the I-drive isn't!

Anyway, I ask because I am thinking about getting the 5 speed with the Nav on my next car and wanted to see what those who have this combo think about it.

The reasons I like the Nav is it has a better OBC, and it's trick. Of course my logical side kicks in and puts this "toy" on the "want" list instead of the "need" list so I may not get it...

What do you guys think?

Hmmm.... Is this a subtle way of trying to justify getting an auto to yourself? :D

If you want it, get it, it's your car!

When I ordered my car with 5-speed and NAV, my salesman said, "Mr. CD-55, this is a very special unique car you're going to have here."

He was probably just referring to the 5-speed.

I have no problems with the nav and my 5-speed. Usually I set my destination before I go so I really don't even touch the screen while driving.

I have Nav with a 5-speed too. I don't have any problems with the combo at all... I use the Nav system all the time.

When I went to order it that way, The Rep at Sterling said he would be happy to do it - with a $5K deposit. He said there was no way he could get rid of it if I didn't end up buying it. :dunno:

Obviously I got my car elsewhere...

That's the second time I have heard that. I don't understand why the car would be so difficult to sell:dunno:

i had nav with 5 speed and it was never a problem. I would not think of gettng a 3 series in auto unless it was for my mom. I personally think the 5 speed is awesome. My brother had the step and it was nice, but no 5 speed.

go for it.

best regards,
Raja
