before ordering my X1, I called the largest aftermarket BMW parts distributor in Turkey and asked them whether they could retrofit nav pro after the car arrives... they said "we can bring every part you need but for retrofitting we need BMW to have circulated the specific retrofit manual for Turkey."

I guess this means that you can retrofit sat nav if BMW has released the necessary manual for UK.

Before finalizing my order I called BMW and asked them when they would release the retrofit manual of nav pro and bi-xenon kit for Turkey. They said that the bi-xenon would be released most probably (!) in Jan 2011 and they don't know anything about the nav pro

anyway, I added the nav pro in my order although I knew that the system would not work in Turkey until 2011 (that's what BMW headquarters told me then)

the car came and the nav system was working

long story but hope that it helps.

last note: my 2003 Z4 was fitted with oem nav system... hundreds of people in Turkey bought their BMWs with nav systems because BMW told that the system would start working in Turkey "within 6 months"... They said the same "within 6 months" thing for 7 years... That's why I requested a written quarantee from BMW Germany before adding nav pro in my X1 order... I really don't know why I insisted on buying a BMW (even renault and fiat has oem navs working in Turkey for years)... I insisted because of the driving machine, I guess
