Not in an '01 unless you have upgraded your radio. Square pin = aux input, round pins = no aux input. Further, if you want this aux input in the front of the car (which is the only place it would be useful), you'll also need to upgrade the wiring harness from the trunk to your dash.when i switch to tv one of the channels is AUX. is there an input where i could play an ipod through without the intravee or comparable?
IF you have square pins then your radio has aux capability. You would still need the appropriate wiring harness to be able to use it up front, and the only way to check that is to pull the radio...so ill check that. if i do have the aux will i be able to play an ipod through there?
Hopefully vaguely on topic of the thread - when looking in the boot where the ICE is - which of the anonymous silver boxes is the radio and which is the TV?On the radio itself in your trunk. Look at the wiring harness. If it has 17 round pins, you have an old radio. If it has square connectors then you have a newer radio unit...
The box that is perpendicular to your amplifier and parallel to your taillights is your radio. The other one is the tv, or possibly the bluetoothHopefully vaguely on topic of the thread - when looking in the boot where the ICE is - which of the anonymous silver boxes is the radio and which is the TV?
You missed the part where he also needs to upgrade his wiring harness. He has an '01 (vs. your '03) and it didn't come pre-wired...if you do have the newer radio, an auxiliary audio input kit (part no 82 11 9 149 391) can be purchased which includes an auxiliary input cable that can connect to an ipod in your glove compartment. the part costs around $30 and requires removal of the navi, where a 3-pin connector may be found ( i think this connects to the square pins baker is referring to).
note using the ipod in this fashion will only allow control of the ipod through the ipod itself & not allow control of the ipod through the navi, unlike the intravee/dice systems.
You are quite right. The AUX input is a selectable input on the TV module and is easy to wire into (see post 13 on this thread http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=99462 ) It is mono however so you are better off with a CD changer parallel lead combined with TV in Motion from ToysInYourCar.com. This way you get stereo audio through the AUX input AND you can watch DVDs through it with Stereo sound.I'm not sure, but I believe the topic starter is looking for this kind of thing http://www.toysinyourcar.com/acatalog/bmw_pd_tvim_av_staud.html since he is referring to the TV module and the fact that there is an 'aux' channel available.
The aux sound input is a different thing imho. On the other hand, for Ipod/Intravee purposes this is the one you are looking for. The aux in the TV module is for DVD players and things like that. So a little mix-up I guess ;-)
