Can you upgrade iDrive standard to iDrive w/ navigation?

I have a 2006 530XI with the default iDrive Businss, no navigation. Can I have the iDrive upgraded or replaced with an iDrive Profiessional or an iDrive Business with navigation?

I don't think anyone has tried it. Physically it should be doable with the right parts. You have to get new (bigger) screen, new iDrive computer, etc. You can find the part #'s at Realoem.com

I think it's one of those things where, if you want to do it, you have to order all the parts separately from BMW direct...and get someone to install it (likely dealership). Basically, it is going to cost you a lot of money.

At some point these mods are kinda more cheaper to just sell your car and get a new one with iDrive Professional already installed.

99% of all dealership will say:

"no sir that is impossible".

We all know the real answer:

"yes...sir...it is possible...but it will cost $x,xxx.00 plus labour. and it will void your warranty."

Think it would be easier to just sell your car and get another one with the options you like.

Stumbled upon this. Read through this thread:

Bottom line...possible. But may be some difficulties.

There is mention of a Business to Pro Nav retrofit kit that is available through BMW. Check to see if you can order it through Tischer or your local dealership.
