    Do you know what system you have? Audio 20, Audio 50, Comand?

    If the Audio options and you have the NAVI button, check to see if there is the pre-installed wiring to take the Becker unit in the glovebox. If you have this then its a case of buying one of the modules. Still not cheap and you need to avoid the fake units out there.

    Use Waze on a mobile phone, it is far better than any builtin satnav and is free.

    Thank you for your message it does not have the NAVI button. In the glove box there are two cables one looks like a usb the other is a 10 mil jack plug

    Based on the above the answer is that it does have built in satnav.

    The people linked above will know what can (or can not) be done to add satnav to the car.

    Unfortunately you can't mirror a phone to your screen. If you have comand, you may be able to add an aftermarket box which allows the mirroring of a phone screen, but it will not enable touch on that screen or interface with the wheel used on the OEM system.

    Upgrading to a newer and more capable version of Comand is not cheap and in the region of £1k. Even then its pretty behind the times.

    Another option is to replace the screen with android unit (looks like a tablet on the dash though) which allows you to run apps like Waze and still use the OEM systems and drive it all through the wheel system. Also not cheap at around £700.

    The plugs in the glovebox are for the Aux inputs so you can play music from other devices.

    I think you mean doesn't have built in satnav. If there is no NAVI button then as far as I know that means it doesn't have it.

    OP If you contact Commandonline.co.uk they will need your VIN number, so have that to hand.

    You are correct, sorry... should read 'does NOT have built in satnav'.
