A good sat nav

I've got a 525I 02. I'd like to get a sat nav with Pandora AND would prefer it to be connectable to the steering wheel controls. Any suggestions?

The only head units which have SatNav and Pandora/Satellite Radio built in will be one of the higher end double DIN head units from the premium brands like Alpine, Kenwood, Pioneer etc.

Pretty much all the premium brands now will have an adaptor to allow the oem steering wheel controls to be used. If you find that the unit you choose and the manufacturer don't have an adaptor, then you can get ones from the aftermarket from the likes of Connects2, PAC or Paser.

Cheers, Dennis!
