E46 M3 Nav question

I have a couple questions between my nav systems in my car. I have looked through old threads but cant seem to locate and was hoping someone can tell me?

In my 2003 E46 M3 I have factory nav with cd player behind screen. It does NOT have DSP and does not tell me distance to destination or arrival time. DVD based...

In my 05 X5 4.8is I have factory nav with "cassette" player behind screen. It DOES have DSP and tells me distance to destination, arrival time and more. DVD based...

First, how is it that my newer BMW has a cassette player but has more functionality. Second, can I change to a model that has cd player and retain all functionality above.

Third, for my M3 can I change to a newer model that has dsp, and gain functionality like that in my X5?

Does anyone know who made these for BMW?



Thank you,
Mick

You might want to check to make sure that you have updated the software on the MK4. One of the best sources for info on the MK4 nav is xoutpost.com. I have a 2003.5 M3 with OEM nav and it does display arrival time. Don't think it shows distance to destination, though.

Do you have it in full screen mode or split screen? I think it only shows arrival time/distance info in split screen mode.

My 2003 X5 has the nav with cassette behind it, and it shows both arrival time and distance to destination. I think the suggestion above to check which software version you are running in the M3 is a good idea. And Xoutpost is definitely a great source of information for our nav systems.

DSP was never an option for the E46, and as far as I know, it can't be retrofitted.
