The Dynavin is designed to easily replace the BMW Business CD unit. It just plugs straight into the existing plug, with some extra cables for USB, iPod, GPS etc. If you have an OEM 4:3 or 16:9 boardmonitor then installing a Dynavin is a little more complex as you require an additional cable

As for why you would convert to a Dynavin over an OEM 16:9 Setup? I agree OEM is best for keeping things looking original. But lets face it, the MK4 navi is getting old now. With the ability to run pretty much any Windows CE navigation ( or program ) you have lots of options. Tom tom, iGo, Navigon. But aside from that there is some really cool moding going on with Internet connections, game emulators, re-skinning the interface etc. So it's a lot more fun if you're a bit of a geek.

And when you sell the car, just put the old unit back in!
