New owner... NAV and screen display questions.

New to this forum.

I recently purchased a 2004 545i.

It looks like my idrive display screen is smaller than others I have seen. Did they come with different size screens depending on the options? Mine appears to have so many options and yet, no heated seats, no heads up display and I am not sure whether it has NAV. I've been told that all I need is the cd/dvd's and it will work. On the display, where I have seen Navigation on others, mine says Car Data. Is that a default when no Nav cd's are installed?

Also, I do have the Motorola V60 Bluetooth installed but my "MyTouch 4" smart phone will connect and place phone calls but I cannot hear the person on the other end and they cannot hear me. So close! Any ideas?

Thanks for the responses!

I would suggest getting the build sheet from the place where you got your BMW from. If you got it from an Independent dealer then go to a BMW dealer and they should be able to look up what options your car has from the VIN. I know that Heads Up Display is not a standard option. If you dont have heated seats maybe your car didnt have the cold weather package. And welcome to the BMW family as well.

Thanks. I did look up the VIN on one of the suggested websites. No mention of NAV. Guess I don't have that.

When I was looking at getting my E60, I saw many that had the option on the iDrive but didnt have navigation. I would think that cars that dont have that shouldnt have that screen active.

My 08 didn't have Nav and had the smaller screen and Car Data as you mentioned.
HUD was optional.

If the main screen on the iDrive screen doesn't have a nav option, then it doesn't have nav.
