iDrive is BMWs built in navigation and in screen display. It controls many of the functions in the car. When I said OEM maps would be more expensive is that they would have to be downloaded into the vehicles computer to show on iDrive. For vehicles without that a standalone GPS or an in dash model is perfectly fine. The in dash ones are better in my opinion as they are more discreet and helps make your car less prone to car prowling.
Based on the very poor English response from that I personally would be very leary. Im not a fan of products that don't have English tech support in case something happens. I would be worried about whether or not they would be able to understand what I'm requesting help with.
