I agree with them in how the "user interface" operates. The NAV in my BMW is not nearly as easy or user friendly as my previous Acura. But, the actual GPS function is every bit as good as the Acura and even though it's not as easy to use I'm glad I bought NAV for the car.maynardc said:
The DVD upgraded NAV "operates" exactly the same as the CD based NAV, meaning the user interface is no better. All the DVD does is provide coverage for the entire country instead of having multiple CD's to cover sections of the country.maynardc said:BMWNA told me that they are switching to a DVD-based navigation system in early 2003. woo hoo! guess I'll wait for that one!
My NAVI is DVD-based (DVD player in the trunk). Although I have yet to get the Navigation DVD from NAVtech They just give me the CD to use in the meantime.maynardc said:
