    Bought myself a 57 plate 520d...first bmw ever so getting use to the comfort..Looks like there is a lot to learn here

    Keen to find out what tricks I can do with my car especially the idrive and satnav..I have been give a navigation dvd with it which doesn't search on postcodes..

    Also there are telephone buttons on the steering wheels but blutooth functionality software isnt installed

    Would love to get around these / upgrade these.

    Here is to learning...Off course keen to hear from other 520d owners and see what they have done with their cars

    What version of navigation DVD do you have?
    Bare in mind that BMW sat nav it is not the same like Garmin or TomTom, they are much better than BMW one

    Just had a look at the DVD and it says Business 07-2 so I guess I need the latest maps for Business version..

    Would that be 2011 Sat nav DVD ? Had a look on eBay but couldnt find anything.. :-s
