Thanks!Amazing progress. Still very interested.
However still got a few questions:
- Will there be a kind of box where we can mount the board or do we have to create one ourselves by 3d printing ?
- Is it feasible to install automated mirror folding when locking/unlocking your car ? If yes, then I can get rid of my x-Style module. I only use that for blinker and folding.
- Can you connect > 1 mobile phone and if so, who will be the first active ?
No, it won't interfere with your camera. I believe you're using the blue 18 pin connector that goes to the factory TV module for that.Just to confirm, I have a TV module for rear view camera, this won't interfere with the connectors? I'd love to replace my grom which works OK, but like the OEM mic integration.
Thank you!So excited!!! Pre-Order complete. Thanks again for putting the time in to create this!
The factory microphone will be sufficient. Build year is no issueHi Ted. Thanks for this thread.
Do we need to buy a mic or is the factory one (2003 build) sufficient?
I haven't seen mention of a particular part to buy for upgrading/adding a mic. (new forum lacks "search in thread"!)
Have you tested this on any Google Pixel's? I have the older Pixel 2.
Thank you! Unfortunately, you can't use the phone microphone if you wish to output the call over your car speakersThis is amazing! Thanks for putting in the work for the BMW community, can't wait to get mine!
I have one question and I apologize if it's been answered already: when making phone calls over bluetooth in the car, can I use my phones microphone to pick up my voice while using the car's speakers to hear the other person I'm talking to or do I need to install a microphone in my car? I've got a 2001 M5
I can certainly post a video of it in action, but yeah, nav works seamlessly with the BlueBus. There are messages that the radio sends to the navigation unit to let it know that it's no longer going to display the radio overlay. GROM must not have accounted for these, so every time they write to the screen, the nav dutifully displays the text.One of my gripes with the GROM unit was the fact that I can not use NAV while BT is in use. The menu goes away before I can select the NAV on the screen. What I didnt see in the video is that you can use your BT then click thru to bring up the factory NAV screen. Im assuming it still works and can be in use while BT is operating? Im one of probably a few that still use the factory NAV vs the phone.
