3D Navigation?

Does anyone know how to get the 3D perspective like what is stated on BMWUSA.com? See screenshot

I think I might have to be in the city to see it. I might try to go DT Miami next weekend to test it out. owners manual say you have to be in a prominent area. Guess I should have before posting.

To use the 3D, you need to be in Perspective View with the option enabled through the physical Option button on the iDrive controller. From personal experience, the 3D renders only the buildings in downtown or skyscrapers here in Houston, which is the 4th largest city in the US. Most of the city is just flat on the map.

In the US, you either have Navigation or you don't. There's no Business, Professional, etc.

I already have it set to perspective view but are you saying I have to hit the physical button that say option on the iDrive controller to turn something else on?

Yes, there is an option to turn 3D perspective view on. It will only show 3D buildings in cities though.

Around me when left in 3D it simulates terrain so hills and valleys appear. Yours may be on but since your're in Florida there isn't much for it to show as far as terrain...

Thanks everyone i setup my nav the way u guys showed me but I have yet to come across any hills or mountains....LOL

I live on the beach but about 15mins north of south beach so i guess my area skyscrapers are not important enough to be on the map. I will try driving to dt Miami to test it out but I will not attempt to hit south beach on a holiday weekend!
