R4.0 = 7" display
Navi 900 = 8" display

Also R4.0 does not have navigation and possibly the car will have the monochromatic centre display in the instrument cluster. (Depending on what other features the car has).

I have not owned a Navi 900, but when i was comparing them, i found that the navi 900 unit is totally NOT worth the extra money, especially as map updates are really expensive, maps are usually already outdated when you get them, AND both units have Android Auto / Apple Carplay that can make the screen into a navigation unit, using your mobile phone.

So slightly smaller screen and loss of onboard navigation capabilities are the differences.

From what i have read the navi 4.0 is just a R4.0 with the Bring-go navigation on it.

This works by connecting to your phone and using that for the GPS part as the 4.0 does not have any GPS itself.

The video below has a description that supports that :

"IntelliLink pairs your smartphone with your car and provides valuable functions for safe and entertaining drives. Here you can quickly find out how to fully operate the Navigation function."

Hi done some research the Navi does have it's own sat nav built in,so just 1 inch smaller screen...unless there's an owner can prove me wrong.
