No GPS :(

Post by SnailyTime » 27 May 2017, 16:17

Hey guys

First time poster and first time BMW owner here. I bought a "14" plate 320i Sport Auto last weekend. Love the car but It looks like I wrongly assumed it would have Navigation on the computer as standard. The manual says just hit "Menu" then "Navigation" But when I press "Menu" ...... nothing seems to happen. Hopefully I'm just clueless and one of you can pat me on the head and send me in the right direction! But I'm starting to think that it just doesn't have GPS fitted. If there is no GPS as standard, can it be added to the existing built in system? Or am I going to have to get a crappy aftermarket unit? Any guidance will be appreciated.

Cheers

Snaily

Post a pic of your dash and pm me the last 7 digits of your VIN and I can check the build list, If you do not have it you can retrofit OEM system but it is not cheap.

Your options are to either buy a Garmin/Tom Tom or you could retrofit the OEM NBT system.
