    Hi All

    I'm new to the site, though have been using it for info for the last couple of weeks.

    I'm Mike from Wellingborough, drive a 2008 E60 525D M Sport.

    I'm just about to fit a VDO Dayton sat nav in the glove box and feed the display to the iDrive monitor. Would love to hear if anyone has done similar - have struggled to find much detail if anyone has.

    Cheers

    Mike

    Thanks - the car was a year old when I bought it from the dealer and didn't have Satnav. I've been looking for an aftermarket solution that can use the monitor since I don't want something stuck to the windscreen and don't want to spend 1500 quid with the dealer!.

    Picked up a brand new VDO Dayton unit from ebay and going to feed it to the monitor via an xcarlink multimedia unit. Once done (and if it all works) I'll post the pictures
