Business nav v pro nav , worth it ????

Post by Yuri »

Hi all I new to BMW’s and just bought. 2016 118d f20

I will be upgrading the audio in the near future,ie new speakers
And amp/ dsp etc ,,,
While I was getting my dash cams fitted the installer who I have know for some years and worked on lots of my cars ,is a bit of a bmw specialist ,,
He explained the I had the business nav system small screen and he could upgrade it to pro nav with a bigger screen , with features like split screen DVD player better nav and he also said it sounded much better and I may not have to upgrade all the speakers and add a amplifier???
Cost would be £600 fully fitted and px my old system ,,,

What do you guys think ? Is it worth the extra £600
Yes I would like a bigger screen , but you can get android screens that would let me use google maps / Waze etc ,,,

Any recommendations would be great ,,,,

Which system would he fit nbt or Nbt ? Evo is better as you can have apple CarPlay but if your not bothered by that I wouldn’t say it’s worth doing!

You could just fit the larger screen (would need coding)

Yes it was the pro nbt , but not with the touch idrive pad , that would be extra ...
to be honest I would like a larger screen , I am happy with the features I have at present , but if the sound quality was better I would get the pro nbt , I believe the pro is made by hardon/ Becker ?? And I have found Becker stereos I have had before to be fantastic ,,,,
Ultimately if there is very little difference in sound quality between them , I could keep my business and maybe add a android 10” screen ? That would also give me better sat nav opinions and Apple car play . But I am worried about the quality
Of the android. Screens

It’s not worth upgrading to nbt, put the larger sreen on yours and it’s the pretty much the same, that is if yours was the same as I had in my 2016 it had nav and enhanced Bluetooth?

I did upgrade to nbt Evo only real benefit was having apple CarPlay not sure it was really worth the £’s for it tho!

If you want better sound upgrade the speakers and amp

I’ve fitted the gladen extreme with mosconi 130.4 dsp in my f22 massive improvement

Audio in my main priority, I am looking for some focal comps and earthquake woofers ,dsp and amplifier as we speak ,
I already have the nav and enhanced Bluetooth ,dab radio and I play all my music via a 160gb ipod lossless ,, so if you don’t think the sound difference between the business and pro headunits is major I shall just change the screen ,, thanks

save yours money then and just get the widescreen (if you don’t like the smaller screen) and you can code it yourself with bimmercode

The amp and new speakers will sort the sound quality out!
