Nice find

$500 off is quite a bit

One question though: how does Nav-Tv actually work? Do you have to subscribe to a service to watch TV?

No....it turns your navigation screen into a TV...

Also there is a new company called tvonnav.com that has better prices than NAV-TV and they also intergrate with the steering wheel controls and the output is in stereo.

Re:

I believe the stereo output is for the Aux input only and not the tv portion. Other than that and the steering wheel controls, there seems to be not too much difference. I ordered the Nav-Tv unit and have an Alpine DHA-S680 DVD changer that I will hook up to it. Since my DVD changer has a remote and this is what I will be watching most often, the steering wheel controls are not important to me. I can't wait to ave eveything hooked up!!

I know it turns my Nav screen into a TV, but what channels can I watch? ESPN? HBO? Do I have to subscribe to a service? Or is it merely for the added expense of adding the $250 DVD player?

Re:

Your channels will depend on the are where you live. Most people That I spoke with who have this get about 10 channels or more. There is NO subscription to any service. Once it is installed, you get the channels at no cost to you. The channels are picked up by an antenna that comes with the kit.

I also found out today that the Nav on Tv version of the unit is available for the M3 but the sound is NOT stereo as some may have thought. I e-mailed the company and that was the response I received from them. I am not sure if the year of the M3 matters. Mine is a 2002 and they advised in my 02', there would be no stereo sound.

Hope this helps!!

Good info!

Thanks for posting that. I think I'll pass on $800 to watch a few local channels of televizzle. $1050 to watch a DVD is more interesting but again not worth for me personally. YMMV.

Anyone have any comments on either system. I'm specfically referring to the navtv system and the premium tvonnav system. Pros/Cons that anyone sees of either? Thanks. Happy Holidays

Re:

I ordered the Nav-TV unit and should have it early next week. I will post my opinion of it once it is installed along with my Alpine DHA-S680 DVD changer. From what I have read and heard from others, it is an awesome setup. Although the sound is mono, I heard it sounds pretty good considering you are inside of a car so the space is small. I also think Nav-Tv may be working on getting stereo sound from it as well. It is currently not available on my 02' M3. I checked with tvonnav.com and they advised that the sound would also be mono on my 02' M3 if I bought their kit. With their kit, I believe you can use your steering wheel controls to change channels though. This was not a big deal to me as I have a wireless remote that I will be using. Other than that, I did not see any other differences. The high-end shops in my area have installed plenty of Nav-Tv units and since tvonnav is relatively new, they have not done any. I am sure the setup and install is very similar or the same but I chose Nav-Tv because of the proven success that I heard from others. I am sure you would be pleased with either unit however. I would suggest that you speak with a high-end audio installer in your area to make your final decision. Good luck...................

Re:

I am not sure why mine would not produce stereo sound. It has to do with the M3 though, that is for sure. I am not sure if this is true for all 3-series BMW's or just the M3. Also, I am not sure if it matters on the year M3. You can check with both companies to see what type of sound would be produced in your specific car. I asked specifically for my 2002 M3 and was advised that there would be no stereo sound for the tvonnav kit. I was already aware that the Nav-Tv did not have stereo sound. Hope this helps. I will repost once I have mine installed.

One more question M3Cab, did you hafta pay extra to get inputs for your planned dvd set up? or does it come with them. I know they offer a dvd player of their own but I, like urself, would rather add my own. thanks in advance

Re:

You can add just about any DVD player you like. I chose the Alpin DHA-S680 which is rated the best by many. It is a 6-Disc Changer and has all the inputs needed for connection. They offer a single disc player but I would suggest getting a changer so you can load a few different movies at a time and do not have to switch them often. Also, the changer I chose plays music cd's, CDR's CDW's, Video Cd's and of course DVD's! You can mix these up in the changer as well! Good luck in your purchase. I will post a new message once everything is installed.
