I love driving my X1. Have had it for 18 months now but the major thing I regret was springing for the Nav. Worst nav system I have ever used. Awkward to enter data, POI's stink, but the worst thing is that the routings suck at least here in Canada. Dug out my old Tom Tom. With the same settings, "fastest", "no highway" the Tom tom routing was over two hours shorter on a 4 hour trip. Another more serious problem was the X1 Nav system directed me onto an expressway off ramp instead of the on ramp. This was a remote entrance and I could easily have entered the wrong ramp at night.

I should say the screen is beautiful and the voice is good but I'm relying on my old Tom Tom.

BMW should hire Tom Tom or Garmin to supply Nav systems and get a touch screen.
