Your stealer will upgrade as far as the hardware will allow (you won't get the 'perspective' view). Mine was a freebie - can't tell you the true cost. Map disc not included.

Just look at either E38.org or bimmerboard. I downloaded the latest SW for the MKII from there and burnt to a CD. You can the upgrade it yourself.

Depending on what you want to spend you can always upgrade to the MkIV nav which you can pick up on Ebay with the most recent software for around $600. Its plug and play and gives you WAY more features the the MkII and is much faster.
