F31s .. Which Pro Nav will they have ?

I have an F31 on order. Reading this post, suggests that F31 will come with the new Pro Nav (F30s) not getting the new version until Nov builds.

Anyone know if this is correct ?

I can't seesee that[/b] much difference between the old and new systems .. Looks like its more visual than functional.

I heard the same that estate will have new nav. Main differences are
Faster processor, 3d movement of controller and ? Hand writing recognition on top piece of controller. Cost probably likely to rise too! Details patchy at the moment, seems they don't want people delaying orders currently so BMW not taking about it too much.

my understanding was the handwriting function won't be available for a few years? Aren't china getting it a year before the rest of us? I've probably mis read, but that's what I thought.

Current information suggests F31s will get the Pro Nav if specified. F30s will get it for those being built from Nov 2012.

This was the closest to a 'review' I could find, shows some of the new features but not sure when all of them might become available. Hope it helps.

Right ... I understand the new Nav and the new iDrive have separate schedules. New Nav will be fitted on all F31s (where specified) but only on F30s (where specified) from Nov 2012.

The new iDrive is not until 2013 for Euro market ???

There's been no confirmation that the UK will get new Nav on F30s from Nov production. Nov is a generic global release date, and as yet there have been no service bulletins issued to dealers confirming when it will be rolled out to new F30 orders. BMW UK has confirmed that F10s will get it from Sept production, but now news yet for UK F30s. It's likely to be delayed behind other markets, so don't hold your breath.

Not sure about the F31s, but I hope the above helps.

New one doesn't look a lot different to be honest.

I think the only plus feature is that it BT's 2 mobiles, which is great as I have a work and private phone.....and sod's law says my nav is always paired to the wrong phone.

There's a whole list of new features, the hardware is twice as powerful and the look/speed of the interface is light years ahead. Other than that it's the same

I would ask to see if you can get yours fitted with the new nav. It is only a couple of weeks out.
