Hi I am struggling to find a sat nav for my X5 e53 facelift model, it's on a 56 plate, if anyone has one which will fit or any recommendations please let me know thanks.

Looks like yours was the same as mine, non factory satnav, you can see where someone has cut out the shelf that held the MID unit.
I fitted a Dynavin ( something 99 ) the newer version is the N6 I think, suposed to be better than the one I had.
Saying that the Bluetooth was by Parrott and the sat nav was IGO 8 which is miles better than OEM.
The hardest part was bracketing, but I reckon just drop it in the slot maybe with a Velcro tape around the edges.
The wiring is included and has one to suit pre and facelift X5's.
I found the radio reception a bit iffy and was thinking of fitting an aftermarket aerial instead of the diversity unit built in to the car.
