How big is the harddrive?

Hello, does anyone know how big is the hard drive of the F30? I got my car two weeks ago and I just found out that it only has a single disc player. Thanks!

Is it the old or new Nav?

Also are you asking how large the drive is, or just how much of it is available for you to store music on? Most of the disk is taken up with the navigation maps etc.

On my 'New Nav' I have 20GB available for music. I think the previous system i think it was 10 or 12GB.

It's an 80GB HD built in, but there is only 20GB available to the user. The rest is used up by navigation maps and system OS storage.

Thanks but I don't have navi and couldn't find any USB plug inside the glove box. Does that mean I do not have a harddrive?

I don't have Nav either. But if you format a USB thumb drive to FAT32, you can use the USB plug in the center arm rest to put your music on. You can't save to it (must be a Technology package feature with the Nav) but at least you can play your tunes.
