I have an 02 745i and bought my CD on eBay a few years ago for $60? Works great and there were no settings to enable street names, they worked immediately

I'm not sure if he means exactly change out the Navi unit but if so you can buy one that says DVD. The one I sent you is one out of a 08 so it will cost a little more but you can get one out of a 745 just make sure its a DVD unit NOT CD. http://www.ebay.com/itm/08-BMW-E65-E...4368ce&vxp=mtr

From and earlier thread:

2002-March 2003 use CD Nav, DVD Nav after that

Look at the drive in your trunk (left side behind the panel). It should say CD-In or DVD-In on it

So the low cost approach is to buy whatever disk you use (CD or DVD). Changing from CD to Nav will be some $$ ($about $300 or more). Look at the disk you have, and buy a newer version. If you're near Boston, I bought a 2006 version a few years ago and it had all the road changes from the BIG DIG, so I haven't updated since. So anything from their newer will do.

On ebay, the newer the release, the more they cost

You can either hit up the dealer for a new set
Of map cd's , or you can upgrade your Navi
Unit to a dvd unit with the latest maps .

FYI - I am not sure if the new set of cd's
Will have street name's . You will have to
Ask the Dealer if it does .

My Nav CD (ver 2006) on my 2002 seems to have all the street names. If i read it right, he has a 1999 CD, time to enter the new millennium with those maps.
