BMW is moving towards offering their navigation system standard on all their cars. Starting September 2015, BMW UK will include the satellite navigation system on the list of standard features.
Every new BMW on sale from then will come with a 6.5in multimedia system with iDrive and Traffic Message Channel, along with other standard features such as BMW Emergency Call, DAB radio and Bluetooth.
In July, BMW 2 Series Convertible and 2 Series Active Tourer will both get the equipment upgrade from July. The 1 Series Hatchback and 2 Series Coupe will be upgraded in the fall so every BMW car in the range will have sat-nav as standard.
Customers looking for the Professional Navigation with the larger 8.8 inch LCD will have to pay extra.
The cost of this upgrade has been reduced to £900 for the 1 Series and 2 Series, and £1395 for the 2 Series Active Tourer and Gran Tourer, both of which also get a head-up display.[Source: Autocar]
