My 2001 M5 didn't come equipped with the proper navigation for where I live so it is pretty much useless. I looked into buying the CD's and the dealer wants something like $300. I was wondering first of all, if a 2001 requires a CD or DVD? Also - Can these CD"s be burned to save a couple bucks? If so - I'd love to send someone $20 or whatever you think is reasonable for a burned california / nevada disk. Any help is greatly appreciated.

You use CD's on your M5. You can go directly to www.Navteq.com and get the entire US for $199, or you can just get your region for $129. This isn't bad. It takes a bunch of work to keep them up. Copying the data is illegal, and someone needs to encourage Navteq to make the updates that will be bought by us. It is a small price to pay, in my opinion. They were $199 each less than 2 years ago.

I believe the X5 board said that the new CDs either were just released, or will be shortly. I think you can call Navteq, and they will tell you how old the current version is. It is time for a new version. I would wait.

Do we know if they've updated the maps recently? The last time I looked it was a 2003 edition -- now the web site doesn't say what edition it is.
Spoke with NavTeq today. The NA version is v.2005-1 released last month. I, too, think $199 plus $9.95 for shipping is rather steep. I have an '03 beast so might defer my purchase for a while. 5 Driver

Check out eBay. Type in keyword "BMW navigation" if you have CD version. Check the "parts & accessories" to get only the disks and other hardware. California should be CD #1.

If you purchase the set fot 199, I'll send you $50 for California.

I have a set of CDs for the whole country that I used in my 2002 M5. If anyone is interested, send me a PM. :M5launch:
