E46 M3 new NAV system
I have a '06 M3 that has a Harmon Kardon system but no NAV. I am considering buying a aftermarket in dash NAV system. Im not sure if I should do that or just get a handheld. Any suggestions?

Any suggestions welcome

I would go with the Dynavin E46 In Dash Navigation System. It's the most OE looking aftermarket nav that is specifically designed to replace the entire headunit and provide OE integration via the steering wheel controls and HK system. It is also a Windows CE based system so it is flexible and offers bluetooth, ipod, aux and SD card functionality.


  • Single DIN mounting chassis
  • OEM inspired design
  • OSD touchscreen function
  • Built-in Bluetooth function
  • Built-in Navigation (GPS) system
  • iPod compatibility
  • SD card slot and Mini-USB port
  • 45Watts x 4 sound output
  • Electronic and mechanical Anti-Shock System
  • Video system: Auto ,NTSC and PAL TV receiver function with PAL;PAL N;PAL M;NTSC and SECAM
  • Screen: 7-inch Digital LCD (16:9)
  • Horizontal resolution: 800x480
  • Four preset EQ settings
  • Rear monitor video output (rear camera not included)
  • 4-CH RCA line out for headrest monitor
  • 30 FM/AM preset stations (AM 12 /FM 18)
  • Full-function remote control
  • Built-in RDS function

Thanks for that reply. However my M3 has the competition package and there isnt any buttons on the steering wheel aside from the M-track mode button. Is it still possible? Do you know the cost of that unit? I definetly like the idea of it being OE.

You can still run it, you don't need the steering wheel controls for it to work- that is just a cool feature :D

The link to pricing is in my post above.

I agree with the recommendation for the Dynavin. I've had one in my car for almost six months now, and I love it. It requires some tweaking (of the software) to get things just the way you like, but that's part of the fun.

Also, it looks completely OEM.

Just my two cents.

Works well, inexpensive, updates are inexpensive, and you can update the hardware very easily.

And, when you go on vacation, you can take it with you to use in your rental car. Try that with ANY built in. :)

I would probably do a hand held, i phone and gps are cheap these days.

or try to find a used OEM for 750-1000 on the forums. Hard to find though.
