I dont know if the looks I would get would be worth jail, or worse, a registered sex offender

+1 for the nav. Didn't want a car without it and would never want a car without it again.

Wish I had Navi...atleast the updated version of Idrive..not the early version. But Since you are looking into a 09+, I would def consider it!

I wish I had the nav. Wasnt a deal breaker since I picked it up at a steal. Will probably trade in for a 4 series when that comes out. That one will be fully loaded for sure!

The nav is nice, but I'd say not a necessity especially when iOS6 comes out with full navigation in maps. Just my 2 cents.

this is so true

Dude you need nav. Don't listen to people saying its ugly. I think it makes the damn car. If it didn't have it, it would look like a normal ass car from the interior.

You will regret it

I've had the non HD idrive in my 08 and HD in my 12 and I can't live without it. Non navi cars are way too boring plus it's the 21st century. Corollas have navis nowadays.

I have nav and I like it... but sometimes I think I need to have my Garmin in the car too. I wish the BMW nav would recognize my home address! Tempted to stop by dealership and try inputting it into a new car to see if an update will fix, but my house was built in the 60s... Also disappointing that I can't upload my POI file with the traffic camera database (those of you who drive in DC and MD will understand) and that there is no speed limit display.

Yes, because I like tech and eye candy.

Retrofitted an OEM navi in my old A4 (got to love eBay sellers from Eastern Europe).

Ordered it for my old C300 - despite the sales person saying, "Why don't you use those suction cup ones and save a few grand?" My answer, "Don't like things cluttering my windshield and I like all the extra features that come with the navi option".

Ordered it with my current E90. Funny thing though, the head unit had to be replaced because I got the red startup screen and the DVD drive not reading my DVDs. Not sure how common this is, but mind you my E90 was in an accident.

I wouldn't buy one without it! BTW, there's a LOT more to it than simple navigation!
