You will have ther NAVI01 (CD), NAVI02 (DVD), or NAVI03 (DVD)

The software version is in the Service Menu, which you can access yourself through the iDrive controller:

To access service menu in i-drive cars:
1. From the main menu display, press the controller down for minimum 6 seconds.
2. Turn the controller 3 increments clockwise (to the right).
3. Turn the controller 3 increments counter-clockwise (to the left).
4. Turn controller 1 increment clockwise (right).
5. Turn controller 1 increment counter-clockwise (left).
6. Turn controller 1 increment clockwise (right).
7. Push down on the controller.
8. To exit the service mode, select the return arrow at the bottom on the left of the screen.

The versions and release dates of the software for the nav unit are, starting from 2006:

NAVI02 8.4.4
NAVI03 9.1.16

Revisions are detailled in the Service Information Bulletins, which are available to the dealer. I have a few copies here. Tell us what version you currently have loaded in your car and I can advise what bugs have been fixed and features added in subsequent versions
