According to the BMW web site, the $1200 Navigation Business option includes a 6.5" display whereas the Technology Package includes a 8.8" display and a version of the navigation system that includes a few more capabilities. You can do a better comparison using the Build Your Own function on the BMWUSA site.Do I have to get the Technology Pkg if I want the full navigation on the center screen? Because I don't need any of the other items that come with the package. I just want full navigation, nothing else. Thanks guys!
I totally agree. I have the same and frequently run Waze and the nav at the same time just for kicks. Waze almost always shows a faster route and when I follow it the nav eventually catches up.I have navigation business in mine (purchased off the lot and came with it) and find I often use Waze instead. Save your money, it's a waste. Also have a 2 series convertible and purposely ordered through ED program without navigation and loaded up with everything else.
It's totally up to you, what is important? I would rather spend my money on the HK speakers, nicer rims, etc.

How do I split the screen with the Business Nav? It doesn't give me that option on the 6.5 (2016)If you settle for the Business Nav option there is still good functionality (I have a US X1 M-Sport):
- You still get Real Time Traffic information
- There is a way (even with the 6.5 inch screen) to set both the map (on the left) and detailed lane guidance (on the right). This is how I use it. maybe I'm old, but 6.5 inch is big enough for me.
and, I'm with the others, if you are in a good cell coverage area, Smartphone Apps are always going to be ahead of what cars can offer AND the maps are updated more consistently.
What I do miss with the tech package is the detailed Dash Display.
I'll have to go down to my X1 to look at the screen setting, which won't be until tonight. I discovered it totally by accident since BMW doesn't publish any sort of usable iDrive manual.How do I split the screen with the Business Nav? It doesn't give me that option on the 6.5 (2016)
Okay, in navigation view:How do I split the screen with the Business Nav? It doesn't give me that option on the 6.5 (2016)
Just to be clear, this is different than the split screen options on the bigger display. The bigger display allows NAV + Radio, Nav + trip computer, etc.Okay, in navigation view:
- go to 'Map Content' (bottom block), click
- next go to third block 'Arrow display on map', click
A black block should show up on the right side of the screen that gives both lane guidance, arrows, current street and distance to turn and next street. I'll try to post photos
