Cheers Wibbles,

I think I am going to hold out on it, I'm going to look for a Pro Nav screen and update my bus NAV screen after x mass. So might come back to you to do a little more coding for me remotely.

that won't work on business nav - you need to have iD5 to begin with.

Yes, I like the layout of the bigger screen, the menus and stuff. I really should have just spec'd it from the factory I will no for the next time around.

Sorry to high jack but I am looking to do the same - I have a March 2017 car with Pro Nav and ID5 That I would like to change to ID6

I know I need the bimmer code app (which I think exists on Android) What do I need to connect to the car?

I had a quick google, is this all I need?
