Also, with CCC, there's lots of people who pirate recent navigation maps on DVDs and sell them for like $40 on ebay, that beats having to go the hard drive route and buy it from a vendor or from BMW.
Exactly right. I wanted the best of both worlds - the controller from cic as it is easier to use, and the dvd based maps of older system as it is easier and cheaper to update, so I just changed to the new controller.
