How to operate BMW MKIV Navigation Destinations +

One of the most common questions that I get is how to operate Destinations+ in the MKIV navigations computer. 

Destinations+ is a feature of the MKIV navigation computer that requires the BMW/Navtech DVDROM.  I know for a fact that it is supported on the 2004.2 version of the Navtech DVD, but not positive on earlier disks.

Both Regular searching of destinations and Destination+ are available via the GPS-Navigation menu of the BMW MKIV navigation computer.  Think of the nav display as a computer monitor and the Navigation computer as a desktop computer.  The computer runs software built in side for the operating system shown on the display and updated "information" is contained on the CDROM or DVDROM disk.

As you can see the menu items of Destinations+ are slightly different, and possibly more refined

Destinations+ allows for a more detailed level of searching

You can also narrow down the search by setting a maximum distance from your location OR destination
