I just spoke with him. He said he has a test bench for all configurations of BMW nav systems from 1991 to present for all 5 series and 7 series models. He said the problems I'm having are quite common; as evidenced here by the preponderance of nav related posts. He wants me to ship him my GPS nav unit and my monitor and a check for $180. He says he will not charge me if he cannot find anything. Otherwise it'll be fixed for $180. I think I'm going to give him a shot at this.
Interestingly, he also wants the AM/FM tuner box sent to him form beneath the GPS unit. He stated this causes a lot of problems with the 2001-2003 e39s...
