          Got a mailing by the dealer this evening.
          It said that the Nav VI will be available as of mid March for 803 Euro.  That's about 860 USD with the current exchange rate.

            Needs to be a big improvement for that   Money especially in the visibility area when the day is bright

              I ordered one when I purchased my new bike, I picked it up from the dealership yesterday. The screen looks a lot better.

                Keep us up to date please on the clarity of the screen once you have tried it in daylight and sunshine it can't be any worse than the Nav v

                    I got my new nav VI last week. Beautiful display, but the nav does NOT fit in the housing. You will miss several milimeters of the display at the right side. The kindly one says BMW cannot fix it, he blames Garmin.

                        The Nav V was also larger than the Nav IV. You need the 'new' shroud to see the whole picture. Hence the question what year your bike is.

                          I got the new housing cost about € 35. Year 2012. I bought both the housing and the nav 6 together. There is a difference between the Nav 5 and nav 6. The left margin at the display is larger. It shows now the BMW logo. At the right the display disappears for a few milimeters behind the housing. It is not possible to control the most right touch knob at the display. It also looks ugly. A big design failure from BMW. I have called them but they wre not able to fix it. Cost all togehter € 850. It is not repairable by adjusting the housing. I tried this yesterday. I will claim this at the headoffice.

                            That's strange. According to their own press release the Nav VI has identical dimensions as the Nav V. Also the same size screen.
                            Are you sure they sold you the correct housing?

                              The Germans are reporting the same problem. Check the Michael Bense forum. And yes they sold me the right housing. BMW has confirmed the design failure.

                                It is a different position of the screen in the new NAV.
