That's kind of what I was leaning toward. I appreciate the input.
So, the E60 navi is the same as the pre-facelift navi in the E90? A little confusing...
I did call BMW parts. Guy there said as long as you update with the latest DVD the nav is ok. Still, though, it sounds like the voice commands are limited and the dial is kind of clumsy. Ah, well...I'm overanalyzing. Will probably just end up saving up a few more bucks and get the whole shebang in an '09 when I can.
