Not true for for 2010 and 2011 cars. I believe that the new CIC idrive systems have satellite receiver hardware included.

You can take a look at yourself with the website by going to the vehicle accessories tab under the bmwusa.com website. The pricing for 2007-2009 vehicles menntions an actual receiver. For the 2010-2011 cars, the price is cheaper and mentions a "retrofit enable code".

It is available for cars both with and without the factory installed navigation.
