I checked your previous posts December last year, in that time you were at the fringe of place order. So it really took time, but it worth the waitting

Congrates for the new rider

Yeah, I added this option.

After driving the car for a few days. I really like the surround view on the big screen.....so much easier to maneuver the car in tight parking spaces.

You do notice that on the big screen, the image shown is the same size as in the small screen, right?

I was really struggle whether to get the NAV for the bigger screen for my new build. And both my service manager and my sales person strongly advised against it.

Reasons:
1) At 33K+17K (HUD. I wouldn't just get NAV without HUD) plus 115% tax, I will be paying for a 110K navigation system for Hong Kong only. Inlcudes only Macau and Hong Kong but not china. China can be installed but will cost another extra! So in terms of resale, that's HKD110K definitely down the drain. My salesperson feels the pain more than I do

2) My service manager told me that BMW HK maps are always at least 2 years behind. And updates will be another HKD3K every year He feels the pain more than I do, too

3) And I find that my Galaxy Note's GPS positioning is way more accurate than the BMW Nav, and showing speed, and speed camera location as well. Let's see BMW beat that! Galaxy Note can receive normal US GPS sats, and also the new Russian system. So way fast! And to pay for worldwide Navigation (I use Sygic), only cost about HKD1200.....

really? I didn't know that.

I am not sure....but I get a much larger rear view picture than the surround view picture. Is this fixed or can be adjusted?

Does it consume a lot of 3G data for your G Note GPS?

And yes spending 110k seems not justify! And like I said b4 for a $1M plus car, It should come with a big screen
