It sounds like he may have the standard radio, and he wants to upgrade to the widescreen navigation screen? If so, then yes, this is possible, but it takes a number of parts and some wiring changes. This is a very popular retrofit to the E38, E39, and X5.

If he has the 4:3 screen in his car, and he wants to upgrade to the 16:9, then this is plug-and-play with no wiring or other changes. You can do that swap in about 15 minutes.
