Damn tough choice because I really want nav. Right now though I'm working on figuring out a way to have a video security system when Im away from my car. But I might have figured out a cheap effective way to do that using my old computer in which case its on for ordering navigation.

For the people that bought this OEM navigation, do you know the specs of the monitor...or if it accepts composite or VGA inputs. I'm considering getting another navigation system and just using the BMW monitor. Is this possible? or is the monitor only able to use with the VDO system? thanks.

You should be able to hook up the nav-tv to this. Not 100% sure tho..

Ive got the cash for that OEM nav system now. How much would installation be? Is it possible to DIY what would you need to do? Does any one actually have that NAV system in yet?

You can do DIY (it comes with instructions). But, I don't have the time, so I'm having someone do it for me (he's charging me $175). If you're near Irvine, CA area, I can give you his number.

It doesn't look TOO hard (not like adding some engine mod) so if you have some knowledge of the car at all... you should be ok.

Just call up Crevier and ask for Chris or Leigh. Tell them you know me (Zivago) and you want the same NAV that I got. He'll know what you are talking about get you the correct NAV. The only difference is there are 2 different head brackets...

Yea, you can get the the factory NAV (even one with the DVD). But, only if you are willing to pay the price (meaning its $$$).

There was a post about it a while ago because someone was selling the entire system. It can be done but it seems no one has on an E46. There was a link to someone who did it on their E39, also it was about 2200 the OEM one Im getting is around half. Edit: That was the asking price for a used system. I think I readsomewhere that the part that goes in your dash is 1500 alone + the DVD itself.
