: Anyone tried out the BMW navigation system? I sometimes drive a friend's Lexus GS300 with builtin navigation system and I find it very useful. Is it worth the $1700? Is is factory or dealer installed? How difficult would it be to get a car with it?
Depends on if you need it. IMO it is a neat toy, but not worht the $$$. You can get it either factory or dealer installed although the dealer installed is mcuh more and the factory setup is slicker (integrated into the dash). One thing to watch out for is if you are looking to upgrade the audio part of the car, i don't think you can replace the head unir in a car with teh nav system. It shouldn't take any longer to get a car with the NAV system as it would without it.
