650Ci video on navi

Hello guys i am new to this forum so don't blast me for what i am about to ask. i did some searching on this site about turing the stock navi screen in to a video monitor but it did answer all my questions.

First of all i have a 2006 650ci. What type of navi system do i have, MK??. I also have the i-drive system. i don't really know to much about the different types of systems and the various models number's. what i want to know is there a way to make the screen on the car show video without adding any other components. i would like to use my nav dvd player to play video dvd's but don't know is it's possible. Also i heard of a chip that can be installed that can make show video, can someone explain this to me and how it works. what can i do to get video?

Thanks in advance guys

it's not possible that I am aware of...The NAVI does read DVD files, but is not able to stream DVD video...I would think twice about having someone open your NAVI also since it will VOID it's warranty...also I would think twice about taking it somewhere since the NAV is on the MOST bus (which is a fiber optic system) most places don't have the tools or knowledge to deal with fiber optics.

///Matt is an unknown quantity at this point
I looked at doing that with my family's 745 and was told by everyone that I talked to that it was all but impossible. As 325 said, its a fiber-optic system and unfortunately it cant be spliced into like the MKI-MKIV. If anyone figures it out, it would be tvonnav.com first.

Sweet ride!

I have a 1999 540 and was thinking of upgrading to a OEM Navi unit. Would i also have this same issue (not being able to slice)?

The main incentive for doing this would be having a dvd player in the car while maintaining a OEM look...

your car is still in the E39 platform...no fiber optic entertainment center...adding an aftermarket (though I do not recommend) would be much easier for you than the new CIP platform vehicles.

So wait... I could would be able to install this:

650Ci video on navi-navi.jpg

And easily modify it to play dvd's on it? Could I insert DVD's in the OEM BMW unit and see it on the screen, or would I have to add a dvd player and splice that into the input wire?

Thanks!

no, no, no...as I said before adding an AFTERMARKET unit would be easier (though I do not recommend it) AND as I said before even though the units read DVD discs it is reading a DVD file not able to stream DVD video.
