I am sure this question has been asked many times before in this forum, however I am recently the new owner of a 2002 330ci Sport Convertible. The car came with standard business RDS radio. What I am trying to find out is the praticality and if its possible or not to install the Sat Nav and TV system. I am aware I would need the Navigation Computer Unit, The GPS Unit, The Colour Monitor display with all the cd controls etc on it, the Electronic Compass and the GPS antenna. Also I need the heating controls that replace that useless flap under the stereo as the original ones dissapear when I put the TV unit in.

All the above parts are available on Ebay and I can get hold of them. As my car was not wired in the factory for Sat Nav how hard would it be to do that job?

I recently took my car to the BMW dealership for price tin install BMW bluetooth phone system but again cos it wasnt prewired it was going to cost a fortune.

If anyone has installed Sat Nav into a car that never had it I would be grateful to hear about the experience as its an optional extra I would like.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks

Hi there, not sure if this helps, but I have been seeking the answer to the same question. I spoke to my local dealer who advises me that there is a possibility of fitting a AC Schnitzer navigation unit. The unit only contains the GPS and satellite navigation and does not replace the current stereo but does look the business. Being Schnitzer they fit BMW quite nicely - better than those aweful pop out ones. The cost is not so good however. They said that the parts are about 2,200 plus fitting, possibly around 3k all in.

I hope that helps.
