2006 BMW 750i Navigation Question (And A Couple Side Questions)
Hello, new to the forum. I recently totaled out my 2010 Camaro SS and bought a 2006 750i. Its my first car ever that wasnt a Sports/Muscle car. LOL.
I love the car but noticed that a few things were out of date. I noticed that it didnt have an iPod hook up so I purchased Dension Gateway 500 (GW51MO2) that would allow me to have full control over my iPod while seeing it come up on my navigation screen.
My next thing i see is that the actual navigation screen just looks outdated. Is there anyway to upgrade the actual navigation unit or pop in a firmware DVD that will change the look of the actual display? It just looks like the first ever navigation image ever made. LOL. and for some reason (maybe its a setting) but the navigation screen is sooooo far away. is there any way to get actual street views that you're passing? The view I have I can only see major freeways which are MILES apart so Im not truly navigating anywhere. I would like to see actual streets that im passing, etc.
Sorry for the questions but Im just confused as to the steps I need to take.
How can i see how many miles I have on the car? LOL
What are the 2 chrome buttons on the top of the steering wheel for?
There is a button on the steering wheel that says D-S-M I believe. What exactly does this do?
I know the answer would be to read the manual but the one I have got wet and most of the pages are sticking together and rip when i try to separate them. Thanks for any info.
