Well, BMW has a Professional radio, and I would guess that Business was considered a way to convey that the radio is not a cheap model, but it isn't flashy with all the bells and whistles, either.

Now "business" means shorts and a t-shirt and a wifi connection in Starbucks, but it used to mean charcoal grey suit, polished shoes, polished communication skills and presence, dependable, well-organized.

At least that's my take on it.

Thanks Salty

Thank you Salty, The amazing Germans with their nomenclature, I wonder what the Z4 radio is named in Germany and Europe.

I have one of these at home.
I can see where our head unit and Navi got its heritage.
The resemblance is uncanny.

Replace Business radio

What is a good replacement for a Business Z4 2003 radio? The volume knob takes many turns to increase or decrease the volume.
