interesting thread if someone is really intrigued by coding themselves vs. paying $100.
It's not really about the money....most of us that can afford these cars have the money to pay someone to program it....it's more about learning your car, and learning how to manipulate it to its full potential. I guess you were never a tinkerer when you were young?

Had to buy a new CCC CD/Nav unit because my original one shot craps. It appears that the fan shut down and the unit got overheated enough that something broke. So with the help of another member here, he gave me the "how to" add AUX to my replacement CD/NAV unit through NCS Expert. So I have AUX but my cd no longer shows 6 CD's like it did before. That is a BMW add-on that controlled an Ipod. Does anyone have an idea on what I might have changed or whatever? I want to have the iPod work like it did before with the 6 cd spoof. Have I overlooked something obvious or .....?

Thanks,
Greg

Okay, let's try it this way...what module(s) control the CD/NAV?

A few weeks ago I was able to add the AUX facility in the menu that shows AM FM Weather CD and AUX. I was fortunate enough to be instructed by a YouTube video that another member pointed out to me. The CCC CD/NAV unit was replaced with another that was in a 2006 E63. Works great except I need to change a few more things and I'll be done with coding (I hope).


I loaded the NCS EXPERT this morning and am ready to change whatever is necessary to complete the following. I'm in the CAPPL module right now on another computer (WIN XP).
I have no idea what needs to be changed and saved allowing the following features to function. The settings in German have me totally baffled.

This is what I need to accomplish:
1) Make the CD to spoof the non-existant CD changer to show the 6 CD's when in the CD mode. I have an iPod connected but it only allows 1 CD to be controlled and that is through the single CD slot.
2) The NAV module shows my location of the previous owner in Colorado. I live in a far western suburb of Kansas City, KS. I have tried every setting I know to change this but have been unsuccessful so far.


Please help!!

Thanks for the info. There are many modules I cannot read, although I don't know if they even exist.
A few modules give me a version mismatch warning :nono:

I'm still in the experiment stage, but need to systematically go through every module :typing:

I'm interested in your experiment with Fuel Level. The first warning is so early, it's always ignored.
can someone send me someupdated datum files for e60?

I hate asking this, but does anyone feel inclined to share with me a copy of NCS Expert? I'd love to get involved with coding my vehicle, but every link I've come across has either been shut down or malware. I will happily share my email if anyone responds to this post. ??????
