This almost certainly has to be a new-software problem. I took my car in due to the engine sometimes getting bogged down at low RPMs (and not downshifting). They didn't "find the problem" but did...

This is also a change from years past. Both my 2004 330Ci nor my 2001 M5 continued to provide power to the power outlets when the car was off, but my 2006 550i does not.

I respectfully disagree.

I have a 2006 550i (bought 3 weeks ago), and my nav system does not have the "new" look and feel. A friend test drove a 2006 750i the same day, and that car did.

Either/or, it will be apparant real quickly if they've changed the look.

I have names for my Address Book entries. "Work", "Parents Home", etc.

Could you post screenshots of your Nav? I have been trying to figure out if CIP 20 has the new, more attractive "anti-aliased" look that my v26 MkIV Nav System (04 330Ci) had. I have CIP 19,...

I was relocating from LA, so I even dropped it off at one of their locations. Their "online satellite tracking" is a complete joke, and it gets manually updated once every 3 or 4 days. Whatever it...

Yeah, I worded that poorly.

I put the MP3 CD in the CD (not the DVD drive since that would mean effectively disabling my Nav since it would have no data). It sees the directory structure, and...

I'm specifically looking for the "anti-aliased" look of the "v26" for the MkIV Nav Systems (on the last-gen cars) and the look of the current 7-series Nav.

E60 Navigation System

This past week I traded in my 2004 330Ci (with Nav) for a 2006 550i (with Nav). Obviously the navigation system is completely different.

I had installed the "v26" update on my MkIV (on my 330Ci)...

I went to order my local dealer to install the kit today on my 2004 330Ci with BMW Assist, and was told it would kill the BMW Assist functionality.
