So my CA was wrong in telling me that the 2011 3er's NAV will work the same as the F10.
Looks like the F30's NAV will incorporate the F10's feature.

If the BMW's NAV is purely software driven then why doen't BMW make the following improvements:
1. Have the voice instructions say the names of the streets/hwy.
2. Lets you save pre-program destinations to a "favorites" or "Trips for the Day" folder so you can easily access them. Currently if I add an address to the NAV but do not start guidance immediately, when I decide to go to an address I input earlier it's disappeared and I have to re-enter it again.
3. Display the address/house # of your destination when you've arrived. Currently when I arrive at a new address I have to refer to my notes for the house number which is a PITA.
I'd be happy if the above could be incorporated in a software upgrade.

Cheers.
