I think there is a coding forum for more do it yourself information. In seeing Mike do his thing first hand he is probably one of the only people with the skills to pull this one off. This is something that literally takes hours if not days to figure out and Mike has done it. Hey THE TECH good to see you around by the way.

Almost 3 AM here.

Have spent the entire day answering PM's and Emails. All have been responded to, I appreciate everyone patience and if you haven't heard back from me please email/PM again as it has somehow slipped through the cracks.

Just completed the retrofit harnesses for two CIC and Combox full retrofits. I have a third one that might be available but need to get another combox.

Thanks and goodnight!

Mike

Assuming you have iDrive, that would require the Combox retrofit in addition to coding, both of which Mike just posted about a few posts up.

Come on man! It's in the thread and since it's his thread, I will bet you could find it on the very first post.

315, but seriously you should be able to look for it. I said a few posts up, so you wouldn't even have had to look very far. This forum tends to help people who have first tried to help themselves, otherwise you always get responses like THE TECH's.

just to clarify. i keep reading mixed messages. Regarding the BMW Apps, if you don't have the cradle, with Mike activating the 6NR and only using the USB Y Cable, do you still get video out?

Not if coding is all that happens. There is apparently a method involving both hardware and software changes that will deliver video out over USB though.

Currently video out only works for videos in your local library and the iPod Out function (native iPod interface on iDrive). It won't play video from other apps.

Interesting, that capability wasn't included in BMW's overview of BMW Apps, I wonder if Apple enabled their YouTube app for this since then? How did you do it? The only options I see in iDrive are PlugIn to bring up the iPod interface, and then a Videos button to browse your locally stored videos.

YouTube doesn't work for me either. Slacker does though.

Strange.. someone on another thread said they texted me too and that I didn't respond.. Going to call verizon now, this is getting a bit frustrating. I'm not sure if it's related to be being on iphone 5.0 software, some sort of bug.

I have some time later to answer PM's and emails, sorry for the delay guys. There are some questions on this thread that I need to answer also.

There were a couple of things I wanted to check on my car in terms of coding, I'm going to really start looking into making the triple turn signal more than three blinks. My car is at the bodyshop getting the bumper drilled for front PDC, plus installation of the Blue Stripe PSW, and OEM Mirror caps, splitters, and rear spoiler. So I can't wait to see it again and start tinkering
