The Navigation system Professional features a sleek design and a superior range of services: The easy-to-use navigation system with iDrive Touch Controller and Control Display includes the Hands-free facility with USB interface and Voice control. Also included: Radio BMW Professional with DVD drive and 20 GB of memory for audio files including a title database. Additionally, online alternative routes can be displayed. The most-used POIs (Points of Interest) such as gas stations, hotels and similar locations are listed in the POI menu as symbols according to search frequency. A fixed, high-resolution 10.2" colour display with split-screen function guarantees optimal readability and clarity.
Its intuitive operation is carried out using the iDrive Touch Controller, whose touch-sensitive surface allows the driver to easily enter destination addresses using their handwriting. Alternatively, the system can also be operated via direct menu control buttons, the eight functional bookmarks or voice control. Thanks to the three-dimensional map display including satellite images as a map background – with photo-realistic depictions of selected sights – navigation becomes a particularly engaging visual experience.
