i really dont want to sound thick, but i am getting the Sat Nav in my new R56 and where is the dvd unit for the sat nav disc? I have only seen pictures of it, and am unsure is it the slot below the screen or is that for regular cds? Can someone help me?

Here's a photo of the center console. The first slot below the speedo is for CDs. The navigation DVD is hidden behind the second thing that has the volume control knob sticking out from the center. The cover pops off to reveal the DVD slot.

Is the old system 4:3 and the new system 16:9 ratio?

The frst generation of DVD Sat Nav in early BMWs were 'square' where as the later ones were 'widescreen' is this the case here?
