Upgrading the Nav System in the 2003-2004 Range Rover

Upgrading the Nav System in the 2003-2004 Range Rover



Video Overview

The navigation computer in the trunk of the Rover is the "brains" of the navigation system.  Think of it as simple as the monitor is just a computer monitor and the nav computer a desktop computer.  It is the hardware and software on the navigation computer that displays the information on the display. Otherwise the display would be useless.  The BMW MKIV DVD navigation computer is MUCH faster and supports 3D map viewing, plus the software supports more additional upgrades such as displaying song title and artist names on the display when playing MP3s or Sirius Satellite radio.

The MKIV navigation computer supports 3D map viewing in much better graphics.

Using the MKIV navigation computer your map position is easier to determine as the map data passes under the vehicle mark.
