Question about 2005 BMW X5

Can you put factory sat nav in an X5 when it does not already have it in

I am looking to buy a 2004 54plate X5(facelift model). unfortunately the one i have seen at the right money does not have the sat nav in it. I have seen some sat navs on ebay and wondered if anyone knew if you can fit the nav with ease. ie does the X5 come with the same wiring loom whether you have sat nav option or not.
I know there is a trim to replace for a shorter one which currently goes over the cassette player and do i need anything else appart from the screen unit.

Hello There

Yes it is possible to install the factory sat nav in you X5, but apart from the head unit you will also need:

  1. new wiring loom
  2. dvd navigation unit installed at the back
  3. TMC radio unit again at the back
  4. bluetooth unit
All the interior needs to come out i.e seats, floor carpets, door trims.

If you feel brave enough then there are BMW forums which gives you very detailed information on how to to it, but don't expect to get it done in a day or even two, a week is probably realistic time. It took me 2 weeks to do my first 3 series.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.

Many Thanks

2001 BMW X5 radio works intermittently


Most sat nav/radio issues are caused by a flat battery! The most simple solution to try is th switch the vehicle off, go to the fuse box on the right hand panel of the boot (as your facing boot) remove fuse 24 (5 amp) for 5 minutes then replace and start vehicle as normal! This will reset the nav/stereo system! Rich B

BMW X5 - 2005


Hi kuldipdhanja this sounds like it could be an internal fault with the video module or the sat nav drive, you could try discontecting the battery negative lead for 15 minutes to reset the control units, you will have to remove the spare wheel and unfasten the air compressor bracket to get to the battery, this fix may only be temporary but it is alot cheaper than replacing parts. regards mark.
