Just bought a very well maintained 1997 540i (E39). Did not come with GPS Nav. Does anyone know of an aftermarket product that will work with my automatic E39. Looking for a product that will fit close to OEM and not an add on external device. Any suggestions?

The only way you'r going to get a factory fit is if you use a factory system. There's more info here, and a tutorial for a non-nav E39 conversion here. I also recently purchase an extremely well-maintained '97 540i, and I've been tossing around the idea of adding nav as well. However, after reading the tutorial, I don't think I'd need it enough to justify the cost and hassle. I've got a pretty good sense of direction. I will look for it on my next car, though

Thanks for the advice...... There's a place in SC I heard about not far from Myrtle Beach. They say they can sell all the parts for 1400 and install for another 600. I think you are right though. Maybe my next car.....Thanks (Unless there is someone who knows another way!!!)
