My advice is that if you do not want navigation, do not buy iDrive.

However, I concur with several other posts that once you have navigation you will use it a lot. I leave my iDrive in the navigation screen all the time with the Assistance Window showing Current Position. It's great for finding gas stations, ATMs, etc. Plus it's not that big an investment - you'll get it back when you sell or trade-in. The portable nav systems are OK but not nearly as good as the built-in in terms of ease of use, visibility, screen size, etc.
