Assistance with E70 CCC Navigation System

Hi there,

Just picked up my E70 X5 and I have a few quick questions about the nav in it.

1. On the iDrive menu, I don't have the option for Navigation on the right like I did on my E90. Does this mean that my CCC doesn't have navigation? I don't really use it, but I prefer to see a map when i'm driving around. I have a disc drive under my climate controls and a changer in my glovebox. My screen is the smaller one.

2. I currently have the smaller screen display but i'd love to upgrade to the 8.8" professional model as I had that in my E92 and it was so much nicer. Is this upgrade hard/difficult in terms of sourcing the parts and what parts would be required for this job? I've seen online that you can actually upgrade to the CIC model which would be awesome but it does seem costly and I have to upgrade the screen and navigation drive in the dash plus a few other parts.

What do you guys suggest?

Kind regards

Unfortunately you do not have Navigation with the small screen. You'd either have to upgrade to a CCC with Navigation or CIC or even NBT. Price wise, CCC is the cheapest, but here in the US (I see you're in Australia) they aren't updating the map disks any longer and I am not sure if they are there or not. CIC is next in price while NBT is the highest in cost. You can still get maps for CIC and NBT without issue and you're correct, anything you decide to do will require more parts, i.e. screen, controller, cabling etc...

My '08 has CCC and I have purchased an NBT kit to install, just haven't yet. The CCC works but has the least amount of options and is pretty slow. Plus no map updates doesn't help either. My '13 has the CIC that all I've had to do was update/upgrade my Combox for 4g vs. the 2g connection.

So the choice is up to you. I am one who likes the onboard nav over using my phone too!
