    Anyone done a sat nav retrofit?

    Has anyone retrofit a sat nav/ double din nav unit into their 1'er?

    If so how? I'm lead to believe double din doesn't fit and you have to hack up the dash?

    ...i take it, you're wanting to fit an after-market double DIN navigation unit, Dan?

    What is this din? This is making me laugh because we used to call dinner 'din dins' for the babies and I am just reading that you want to smear food over your dashboard. Enlighten me.

    I've just fitted a Sony XAV-AX100 double din to my 118i msport it's ended up looking factory fitted I have the auto climate control as well. It's also Apple CarPlay and Android auto so when the phones connected you can use it as a sat nav. Would recommend this to anyone.
