Garmin make decent units. You should probably have no problems with it. In fact, you probably will prefer it to BMW's iDrive.

I have the Nuvi 660 and it's great.

When these were $800, I think it was a bit much, but for less than $200, I think they're great. I already had ordered iDrive on my car though so I guess I don't need one myself.

I doubt you'll be disappointed. Garmin makes some great portable navs.

Tiger Direct, on the other hand, is pure evil and I can't believe anyone sends them money on purpose anymore.

+1 - 660 is a great unit, Garmin is a good GPS brand.
