Sat nav question

Hi All

I have just bought a set nav set up. This is what I bought

complete BMW GPS MK3 Sat Nav system retrofit kit, including:

monitor 4.3
MK 3 Sat Nav unit
GPS trimble
Complete retrofit wiring harness (factory) plus installation instructions and wiring diagrams
Australian nav software CD

Do I need to get a radio module as well or is that part of moniter or does my car have a radio module with a standard bmw radio

You definitally require a radio module, not sure which one for Aus, the BM24 and BM54 are for Europe, BM53 (BM23?) for the US.

You don't need a trimble for a MK III, its built in, you do require a GPS antenna though.
