Yes for pre-lci e60 bmw with or without navigation and with or without logic 7. If I get my hands on a lci e60 I will try to retrofit an AUX input and add an update over here
Nice write-up. :M5thumbs:
Are the "3 female connector pins (tyco)" the Tyco MQS 0.5mm P/N: 962885-5?<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com<img src=" /><o></o>
AGM5. Yes 0.5 mm I believe
The termials can be ordered from NewarkHI!
Apparently I can't send you a message since i'm a new member... I hope this works...
I'm getting ready to do an AUX addition to my 2006 e60 but the only piece i'm missing are the tyco pins soldered onto the ends of the aux cable...
can you please give me a part number or guide me in the right direction?
Your DIY was absolutely perfect and I can't wait to get into it asap.
Driving to Florida? Now you are talking!!!Gavin, im driving to florida in a few months but kentucky is out of my league! lol
AG,^ No problem. It was a PITA to identify the correct terminal and sourcing a supplier, so I don't mind saving others the trouble. :cheers:
Hopefully this can help.AG,
I've ordered the parts now waiting for them to arrive, I plan on installing the AUX input in the center arm rest. I've designed and had a small plate cut on which I will mount the 3.5mm jack along with a dual USB port. I'll connect each usb port to a 3A 12VDC to 5VDC converter which I will power with the 12V lighter jack in the rear of the center console. This way I can have power and aux connection tucked away. I'll be sure to take pics.
I already started with the coding for the AUX, considering i'm a newbie it felt like I jumped through hoops of fire to get the AUX to appear. Despite many errors and tons of research to fix them I still got an error at the end with NCS expert. In frustration I gave up and decided to go get a beer... it was then that I realized I had done something right since I now have AUX as an option!!!! yay!!kinggf
Though I could really use any help with one more thing. I REALLY would like to enable MP3 playback. I've done so much research on this that my head is about to explode.:crying:
I know I shouldn't ask but won't hurt.... do you or anyone know of a simple guide to tell me what to change where?! Maybe point me in the right direction? please?
As always, thankful for any advice.... and if I can be of any help to anyone with my limited knowledge, i'm in the Atlanta GA area and would be more than happy to try and help.
OK. Then how about when we add +KMP3 or +NAUX to the VO? These are needed for some cars which can't play MP3 or would like the Audio Aux In option enabled.
I believe we can change the following in:
CAPPL: mp3_ccc (to play mp3)
(to enable audio aux in)
But I had read that we need to supplement the +NAUX to the VO before enabling aux in for it to work. Is this true? Also, another question that I have is, do we need to process Car if we add an Option to the VO? Or just performing an FA_WRITE to the CAS And LMA would do?
Btw, my E63 and my friend's E60 are both way over their warranty period. So that's why we are experimenting with all possibilities
