One of these forums have surely covered this can do a search or post a question...but again, this question has definitely been answered multiple times over the last decade. :)

The e38/e39/e53 share many of the same iPod/MP3 the info you'll find on any of the sites linked below should work:

OK a little tougher question that i couldn't find/ am getting tired of looking for, is can i get a newer 16:9 head for my 2001 X5 and will it work with everything in the car? Mostly becasue i would rather have a newer one and i have heard that the newer ones have a port/cassette tape. thanks

Does your audio system have the DSP option? If so, that takes you down a different path. If you've had an opportunity to explore any of the links'll see what can be done based on if you have DSP or not.

Link & video found googling "upgrade bmw to 16:9 nav screen". The bimmernav site has written info & DIYs for multiple BMW models and audio systems. Their site also details how to connect iPods & MP3 players using equipment that is out there that allows communication between these new audio components and BMWs older audio systems:
