Mein Auto: 330 ci convertible
Angry Is anyone else aggravated that sirius with Nav only displays 16 characters...

when the less expensive business radio scrolls full artist name and title?

I have a 2005 330 ci convertible.

Has anyone heard of a firmware upgrade, otherwise who can we complain to about it?

It's bad enough that you only get 6 presets for sirius when the business radio get 18!

It's just wrong to spend the extra money on the nav and HK and actually get much less functionality.

Otherwise, is there an aftermarket setup that keeps the nav, but gives you the full text display?

i didn't realize the business cd player would scroll this text. I was actually pretty happy when i put nav in my car and got more of the test to display. as well as the cool guide to navigate through the channels.

Yes, I am aggravated... the Sirius implementation in the OEM Nav is mediocre at best, especially at more than $300.00.
