To all you folks who replied to my original posting regarding my montior and sound problem: Thank you and especially to those who though it was the Naviation system, as it did turn out to be the problem. My good friends at a BMW shop (not dealership) sensed it was the Nav system and removed to inspect it. It turns out the fan was not working well, not cooling the unit, causing problems which led to the sympoms I described. They swapped in a used Nav unit, and I have not had any problems since. The dealership actually wanted me to replace the monitor/radio unit, which was a complete red herring. .
