install an OE NAV system WITHOUT Mark IV

Hi guys. so I've tried doing research on this for about a year now and I have not been able to find a definitive yes or no so I'm going to ask you all... Can the Nav head unit be installed into the deck and be used without having to install the navigation system in the rear? I do not want it, or the blue tooth or the cd changer. I merely want it for looks AND potentially to hook up a reverse camera.
Can this be done?

Also, am I correct in saying that all Nav HU's have the DSP capability. Its the rest of the stereo that determinies if the DSP is an option, correct?

If I buy a Nav HU do I have to worry about some not having the DSP, as my X5 currently DOES have it and I do not want to loose it.

edit: nope, can't be done

nope. TV tuner or GPS does the image generation. The BMBT is just a monitor, keyboard, tap/CD mechanism. You can swap the nav drive for a TV tuner though. You'll deffo need the TV tuner for the reverse in. Note the TV tuner graphics are 8 bit.

You need the DSP amp in the system, then DSP settings become an option on the BMBT.

If DSP is on the iBus, it appears on the BMBT menu. EDIT: Not sure how the 8 bit TV tuner handles DSP images. Google images would be your friend there.

Consider a dynavin.

DSP works exactly the same with a TV modules as it does with a nav computer. Both have exactly the same features and graphics interface. The MKIII and MKIV has a slightly better looking GUI than the TV module, but not a big difference.

+1 to everything else in bigbog's response.
