    I've searched, but came up with nothing. Has anyone modified a BMW Navigator III to have the XM radio feature available on the regular 2820? I can put an XM radio on the bike, but I want to minimize added crap. Thanks!

    Cannot add XM radio to any current BMW Nav or to the BMW Zumo,partly because BMW had ties to Sirius(kind of moot now that they merged)

    There is no hardware/software mod available to accomplish this.

    I knew about the contractual stuff regarding BMW and the Serius/XM merger, which is why I went with the Nav III versus the Nuvo. I guess what I want to know is, has anybody cracked their Nav III open and installed the 2820 stuff? I really don't care about the MP3 player, since I have 20G of music on my iPoo anyway.
