The forum has a search function that yields a lot of great info on e60 topics. Here is one thread which will give you a lot of tips. It's not easy or cheap.

Just a personal opinion, but, I would not make that investment in a car 7 years old. I'd simply buy a modern window mounted navigation unit. BMW units are a little quirky to use. Save your money for future repairs.

+1. Retrofit is foolishly expensive. Window mount or smartphone app works as well or better than BMW's solution.

Agree. I always double check routing with at least two other nav. apps. Just returned from a 4 week 5,500 mile road trip to Yellowstone; had to change between East and West DVDs and got terrible routing from BMW CCC unit whenever being close to National Parks. It also cannot tell you on which side the destination is. Sometimes I only use the screen to visually follow smart phone voice directions.
