Question MP3 with NAV

I will pickup my 330i with NAV on 10/17 and am wondering if I can bring cd's with MP3's. I have been reading conflicting reports about MP3's working on cars with NAV. My car was built on 9/15.

Not unless they have changed it since I picked mine up.

It should work. My 330i with NAV was built around the same time as yours (it was built on the 36th week of the year, which starts around 9/12/05). I picked my ride up European Delivery on 9/30/05. I brought an MP3 CD I had burned to test it out. It worked flawlessly. I don't see why yours should be any different.

Do you know if there is a software/firmware upgrade that adds this capability? Mine definately does not play MP3 CDs, I took some to Germany and they were useless. Picked up in April.

Or is this an E90 feature?

This is an E90 September+ production feature as far as I know. E90s prior to September production do not play MP3 CDs when NAV is also installed.

I believe a software update to the latest version will add MP3 functionality to the E90 cars with NAV that don't already have it....

The trick to getting free software updates is to complain about an issue that you know is fixed in the new software version. Many dealers don't want to update software just because you want them to.

As for the MP3, I'll just take my Ipod and hook it up to the aux in!

Just got back from ED of M3. We did not take any music CDs, but the nav/computer manual says it will play MP3 and WAV tracks on cds.
