Mein Auto: 2003 BMW 540i

It looks good, considering E39 interior styling.
Does it function well? Meh... BMW navs suck big time when it comes to inputing a random address (at least it does on idrive).. Even my Iphone can go from input to navigation faster than a BMW.
The nav layout is a bit dated if you're running a pre-V32 software on the computer. I do like the split screen directions and map adjustability. IMO MKIV with V32 software makes the nav bareable.

Is it a good retrofit? Not worth the $$$
Is it nice to have when you buy a bmw? Yea, some people use it, and as parts, for some stupid reason, it's worth $$$.

The dynivan unit is supposedly a good alternative, but it still doesn't look good in an E39 IMO.

ALL M5's in the USA have navigation as standard.
