I'll admit, I don't really use the built-in GPS for navigation very much, but I use it as background while driving everywhere, in split-screen with my entertainment screen on the right. The NBT also has full album art and title info, along with FLAC support and drives larger than 1TB. I have a 500GB SSD with over 375GB of lossless music easily searchable in the car. If I decided to go with the NBT Evo head unit as an upgrade, I could even get CarPlay/Android Auto functionality as well.
That does sound awesome! I didn't even realize there was a retrofit for our cars until I saw your post! That looks like the ultimate audio upgrade for the E39, hands down. Does it work with the steering wheel controls as well?
What are you using for amps/speakers/subs now?
