2009 BMW 750i: Navigation in HD

January 25, 2010


Not sure why I never noticed it before, but the navigation screen in the 7 Series is ridiculously large, like a mini-movie screen stretching across the dashboard. When you're using certain functions it's easy to miss just how big it is. Turn on the street maps at night though and it's hard to miss.

Now some would say it's all pointless, you can just scroll across smaller screens anyway. True, but between the clarity and its size, this BMW's navigation screen has to be one of the best setups in the super luxury sedan class. Best of all, it's easy to zoom in and out, and getting additional info is just a bump of the iDrive knob away. Never thought I would be writing that line.
