BMW GPS Navgation Retrofit Instructions

BMW GPS Navgation Retrofit Instructions

You can Retrofit your BMW with a full Navigation system, although it is more challenging than just swapping out your display.

I have some of these parts on the following webpages, but do not have widescreen displays for the 3 series or the misc brackets detailed in these part numbers. I also do not have kits that come with all of these parts. offers for sale at very competitive prices parts for your BMW navigation retrofits.  See online webstore for  details

There are a number of websites that detail this procedure and documents from BMW that detail this effort.
