M Settings with no iDrive
I just bought an '06 M5 at a decent discount due in part to the idrive not being functional. I have not done any troubleshooting yet to determine the issue (MPM, finding faulty unit on MOST loop etc.).
In the event it is a faulty CCC I have been researching the feesibility of forgoing idrive for a custom made carputer (raspberry pi with LCD e.g.). A new CCC or CID retrofit brings little to the table, given that they are outdated.
The major issue I have is not having access to M drive settings. Is there a way to access these outside of iDrive? What system handles the M settings? Within the CCC or could I access these through the pi somehow? Can I just toss out the CCC without losing M drive settings?
