2014 model - New Touch Pad

Do all 2014 models equip new touch pad as a standard equipment?

Don't know about Canada but in the US you only get the touchpad with Navigation

I used BMW decoder to check the interior of my car and found out that the touchpad is old one. I am not sure whether the picture is correct or not, just want to confirm it. I didn't order navigation as an option, so maybe it is right.

I have the touch pad and I have no idea what to do with it. The CA really pushed it as such a great upgrade over the 2013 Nav. I really don't know if I will ever use it.

Do you have Navigation on your car? I like the new touchpad because it looks better.

I know the Canadian packages/options are different than ours in the US, but if you didn't get the navigation option or tech package, then I'm 90% sure you will have the old iDrive controller (no touch).

My understanding is that the new navigation IS a huge upgrade over the 2013 nav. Lots of improvements in the software and hardware of the nav to make it much faster. The touchpad controller is just one more component of that... the one that happens to be the most noticeable on the surface.
