Truly cool. If I could ever get my wife to take a drive longer than 2 hours, this would be way useful. For the short hops, the BMW Nav software routing is good enough.

Have you considered asking...

I'm not sure if I'm following the pictures correctly, but does the '16 have a pop up screen instead of a fixed one? I've had an '09 750, now a '14 750, and my wife has a '15 535. When we were...

Nope, it's quite noticeable from a head on view. I do know what you mean, however. I had that on my first 750 and it didn't bother me at all.

It is very doubtful that a cop could detect it, and I don't think that is a test performed at most state inspections. It's one of those things the manufacturer can't legally offer, but end-users are...
