Having problems with your 2005 BMW X5 ?

Can you put factory sat nav in an X5 when it does not already have it in

\015 I am looking to buy a 2004 54plate X5(facelift model). unfortunately the one i have seen at the right money does not have the sat nav in it. I have seen some sat navs on ebay and wondered if anyone knew if you can fit the nav with ease. ie does the X5 come with the same wiring loom whether you have sat nav option or not.\015\012I know there is a trim to replace for a shorter one which currently goes over the cassette player and do i need anything else appart from the screen unit.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 23-10-2017

Hello There

\015\012Yes it is possible to install the factory sat nav in you X5, but apart from the head unit you will also need:

    \015\012
  1. new wiring loom
  2. \015\012
  3. dvd navigation unit installed at the back
  4. \015\012
  5. TMC radio unit again at the back
  6. \015\012
  7. bluetooth unit
\015\012All the interior needs to come out i.e seats, floor carpets, door trims.

\015\012If you feel brave enough then there are BMW forums which gives you very detailed information on how to to it, but don't expect to get it done in a day or even two, a week is probably realistic time. It took me 2 weeks to do my first 3 series.
