Would you know if there are any aps or software out there that makes the navigation display any more useful?
It would be nice to have virtual gauges there. Something like a digital speedo, tach, thermometer, clock etc.

I am not sure about anyone else, but the analog gauge and steering wheel alignment on this car is the worst I have every owned. The wheel goes right through the sweet spot on both gauges for me rendering them totally useless.
And not that I could ever see anyone making use of it, but their "shift lights" would be totally impossible to ever see.

I'm not aware of any additional "helper" applications.

I wish that the USB cable would allow integration with Garmin Navigon for the iPhone.

Agreed, the instrumentation is old-style and not as visible as it could be. The entire instrumentation cluster area made me waffle for almost three months on whether to get the M3 because, frankly, a recent-model Kia kicks BMW's a.. in this area.

But BMW kicks Kia's a.. in everything else...

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.
