The BMW Navigation DVD is a compilation of digital road maps which are specially designed for selected models of the premier car brand. It contains not only the visual representations of geographic locations, but also some useful facts.
Driving has never been easier with BMW Navigation DVD. In the past, physical maps and road signs are the only geographical references available to drivers. While a few experienced car owners can effortlessly find their way around the maze of an unfamiliar area, still there are drivers who often experience difficulty following directions and hence, tend to get lost easily. This is usually aggravated by the fact that most maps and signposts are not current or the directions are simply misleading. BMW has made a breakthrough in this department by developing its own comprehensive maps that work seamlessly with the car's GPS.
The BMW Navigation DVD is a compilation of digital road maps which are specially designed for selected models of the premier car brand. It contains not only the visual representations of geographic locations, but also some useful facts to help drivers in reaching their preferred location in no time and with much ease. This DVD is available for models as early as the BMW E39 Navigation System up to the latest 2014 X5 Series. Although the GPS device itself may not be readily available in later BMW models, car owners have the option to install a unit with which to run the digital maps. There are several aftermarket GPS devices that are compatible with select car models of BMW.
Depending on the type of GPS equipment that has been installed, the DVD can have a full functionality of an advanced navigation system. Being a new-generation car, the current release of the X5 Series already includes a built-in GPS-DVD drive that is comfortably seated on the dashboard. The BMW X5 Navigation System features a high-resolution display that comes with a split-screen function among other visual components for improving road navigation.
The navigation DVD for BMW cars' GPS is updated twice annually in order to make sure that the digital maps are current and factual. A recent update in the software now includes traffic information, route and parking suggestions, landmark identifier (for tourists) and restaurant recommendations. These features are highly useful for those who frequently travel out-of-town. The diagrams as well as the three-dimensional rendering of the locations make map-reading educational and even fun to some drivers.
Since the digital maps are created in 3D, drivers are no longer required to strain their eyes in order to figure out the difficult-to-read diagrams. The software enables fluid transitions between the images as the BMW steers along the roads, allowing the driver to view his exact location and make an estimate of the highway ahead. Indeed, with its powerful map features, the BMW Navigation DVD is an ideal companion for leisure driving.
