The original post was inquiring about being able to watch iphone/ipod videos via the navigation screen.

Not audio files.

BMW offer a TV module for markets outside the USA, however unlike previous generations used in the older E46, it does not have a auxiliary video input, so therefore cannot be used to playback video for auxiliary devices, such as ipods.

The in-dash DVD drive is for navigation data disks only. It does not have any hardware or software mpeg2 decoder, or DVD-Video playback capabilities whatsoever.

The only other option is to use after market. TVandNAV2GO offer something.

It supports auxiliary video input. To switch between the auxiliary video and the i-Drive, you hold the menu button for 3 seconds.
