Question 2004 X5

I have searched and cannot find an answer to this question. I want to install a NAV system in my vehicle. I have completed a NAV install on my Audi A4. It was a little complicated but accomplished in a day.

The Dealer says my 2004 HAS the GPS (My vehicle has BMW Assist) and Bluetooth to boot!. The bluetooth module is installed on the top of the rear quarter panel rack (and they supplied the pin). I pressed the assist by accident (well curisoity) and the Lat and Lon appeared on the radio before it dialed the BMW Assist operator.

Since the car seems to be "prepped" for NAV, are there any special things I should know? I'm ready to buy a MKIV unit with the cable and all, but don't know if I need the cable.

Any suggestions or resources I should look for?
Thanks, Corey

The only modification I'd make to my post is that you may (emphasize may) not need the GPS antenna. But I'm pretty sure you are still going to need the nav harness run in the vehicle, which will require the gutting of the interior.

Question Harness availability

Does anyone know of a place to get the harness. I have not seen any on Ebay for 2 weeks.
