Mein Auto: X5
Navigation and sound system

Asking for assistance on how do I go about buying / installing a sound system an navigation system in my 2009 X5 - basic model. The only features I really miss in my new X5 is not having built in navigation and a very good sound system AND being able to do my bluetooth to my Iphone.

A thoughts or suggestions on systems available - production AND aftermarket systems.

I appreciate any help on this.

There are two or three VERY good vendors, based in EU, that offer BMW hardware that will let you upgrade to a new idrive/CIC nav and audio system. It will NOT be cheap.

Patrys at bimmertech is one.

Do a search for "CIC" here, you will find PRECISELY this issue discussed.

Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
