The Navigation System Plus including BMW Head-up Display brings together several useful components: a navigation system with built-in 8.8 inch LCD colour display, radio, MP3 player, RDS double tuner and an instrument cluster with high-resolution 5.7 inch TFT display. Route guidance is provided via an arrow or map display, along with spoken instructions. The navigation system is operated intuitively via the iDrive Touch Controller with direct menu control buttons and eight functional bookmarks or – depending on the vehicle's features – by voice control.
Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI) is included as standard. This provides precise information on the current traffic situation. Using data from movement profiles from the cellular network, and GPS data from vehicle fleets, smartphone apps and police reports, it knows the fastest route and guides you along it. It provides updates on the traffic situation in real time, and to the nearest 100m.
It also calculates any likely delays and recommends detours, and will keep you informed at all times so you can avoid tailbacks and road closures. Wherever your journey takes you – motorways, major roads, country roads or inner-city routes – Real Time Traffic Information gets you there faster.
