Hello,

I see in configuration that there are 2 model of Sat Nav.

One very expensive BMW Xl and another one cheaper 6.5 inch.

Do you know what are the differences ?

Is good enough the cheaper one or is a waste of money and have to buy the other one ?

Thank so much

It's more like there are two sizes of screen... they do more than just sat nav.

The larger screen has a split screen feature where you can choose which function is displayed on each side... you can choose almost anything. When I use satnav I have the map on the left and arrow directions on the right. Otherwise I might have minimalism on the left and trip computer on the right. The smaller screen shows you one thing at a time.

Also, the larger screen comes with a fancier controller knob... it offers more movements and a touch sensitive top that you can use for entering details (by drawing) or controlling the map (panning and pinch zoom).

The navigation XL has a 3D view feature... I haven't tried that.

I think the larger screen has a lot more phone connectivity as well.

It is a lot of money for media XL... you have to decide if those features are worth it. I think it was the split screen that persuaded me to get it.
