The BMW Navigation system Professional features an 8.8 inch monitor and a 3D map display. Any traffic congestion is marked on the map so that the driver is always up to date when the navigation system suggests an alternate route. The integrated hard drive stores all your maps, addresses, contacts and, most importantly, music. Using the optional USB connection or the DVD drive you can add around 100 music CDs as MP3 flies to the hard drive.
BMW Assist puts you in control of your travel plans. Up-to-date traffic information, congestion reports and alternative route suggestions can be called up at the press of a button, plus information about hotels, restaurants and other useful addresses. These can be entered directly in the optional navigation system. Its automatic emergency call feature and breakdown assistance request, including vehicle location data, enhances your safety.
BMW Online is an internet-based feature which can be used to read or send emails and offers individually tailored information services including news and business updates. With its address book feature and email function, BMW Online transforms your BMW X5 M into a mobile office. Optional Professional navigation system with integrated Bluetooth mobile phone preparation required.
How do you navigate through a library of 10,000 songs? Preferably on the road using the multifunction steering wheel or iDrive controller. Almost all common MP3 players, USB sticks and iPods can be integrated effortlessly with the audio system. The title of the track being played is displayed either in iDrive or in the cockpit. Devices can be operated directly using the USB connection (and an additionally available connecting cable) in the central console.
The optional Bluetooth interface provides a wireless connection between the vehicle and Bluetooth-compatible mobile phones. The phones are operated via the hands-free kit, multifunction steering wheel, iDrive Controller or Voice Control depending on the equipment options of the individual vehicle. Your local BMW dealer will be happy to inform you about which mobile phone devices (and software versions) are compatible with the optional Bluetooth interface.
Road networks are constantly changing: digital road maps for BMW navigation systems keep you informed of these changes and are available on CD or DVD twice a year. The integrated Falk travel guide* also provides you with a range of additional useful information, such as local sights and restaurants.
