Navigation Plus including the BMW Head-Up Display brings together several useful components: a navigation system with built-in 8.8" LCD colour display, radio, MP3 player, RDS double tuner and an instrument cluster with high-resolution 5.7" TFT display. The full-colour BMW Head-Up Display projects relevant driving information directly into the driver's line of vision, so that he or she can better focus on driving. Route guidance is provided via an arrow and map display, along with spoken instructions. The system is operated intuitively using either the iDrive Touch Controller, the direct menu control buttons and eight functional bookmarks, voice control or the touchscreen with interactive tiles, which display live content. The system is also equipped with USB and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as a hands-free facility.
Navigation Plus shows drivers the quick and direct route through numerous European countries and in some cases even further afield. TMC technology is used for the early detection of traffic obstructions and for rapid calculation of alternative routes, so that the vehicle reaches its destination as quickly as possible while avoiding traffic.
