I-Drive with Navi

I am ready to order a 335i but not sure about the I-drive/NAVI. If I order without it, what feature(s) will I lose (other than Navi)?

Thanks guys!

You can't lose what you don't have

Seriously speaking though, you won't get the Real-Time Traffic Info (RTTI), or visual (and IMO easier) access to various vehicle settings (door locks, confirmation, day-time running lights, seat memory), climate control stuff, bigger display for your CD/radio settings. Most of this stuff you'd have to access via the control stalk and the display screen on the dash (next to the speedometer etc.).

If you have PDC you won't get a visual display of the proximity to objects. You'd just hear the beeps as you get closer.

edit: Oh and if you have BT/Premium Pkg then you won't get to have the access to your phone book in an easier fashion. It has a section for your Top 8 people, missed, received etc.

If you don't order satnav, you also end up with the low version of the computer as opposed to the high version (CCC). One noticeable difference is that you lose voice commands and speech to text conversion without the high version.

In addition, the bordmonitor has a lot more real estate to display iPod and sat radio info.
