▀▄ eas - TVinMOTION modules now available for 09+ M3!

BMW upgraded their iDrive systems in 2009 (CIC) which allows for DVDs to be played using the in-dash DVD system. Unfortunately, we are greeted with a "video is only available when parked" message and and blank screen.







The TVinMOTION module acts as a safety override so you can decide if you would like this option enabled or not, allowing full video while the vehicle is motion for passengers on those long trips.

Product Specifications:

- Fully E13 tested and certified: E13 10R-02 4133
- Ultra-low power standby mode (less than 0.1mA)
- InstallAID LED shows correct installation and status
- Intuitive Setup menu for easy customization

Product Features:
Enable video while vehicle is in motion
Overrides video interlock at 3km so DVD feature can be displayed while driving.

Permissions
You can select for this TVinMOTION features to be enabled/disabled through a simple command via the blinker stalk in case the vehicle is driven by someone other than you.

Models Supported:
2009+ BMW 3-series, including M3

Note: Safety First! Please do not watch TV while driving and obey all laws applicable in your state.




TVinMOTION Control for 3-series (e9x)
http://www.europeanautosource.com/pr...oducts_id=2320

Installation is about 1 hour and DIY. Special thank to CJ for allowing his car for datalogging and being a part of making this finally happen.

Thanks for looking.

Sorry, 2009+ CIC-based iDrive only. 2008 (CCC) does not have DVD video capabilities.

Is there a downloadable installation manual? I want to see what's involved in the installation.

Also, would this allow video playback either an .avi file burned to a CD/DVD or from a USB drive? I never tried playing videos on my iDrive at all so I have no idea if it has this capability.

I've not tried burned movies yet on the CCC systems. If your current setup does not allow this, the module will have no effect on this.

The module simply overrides the interlock for video playback while the vehicle is in motion.

Sure thing:

Detailed function description (* = Factory Setting):

Function 1 - Module Mode ( 0=OFF / *1=ON )
When disabled (setting 0), the module becomes completely inactive and behaves as if it was not installed. This is useful if you need to take the car to the dealer or garage for inspection or repairs. The module can not even be seen by and does not interfere with the manufacturer's workshop tester.


InstallAID™ LED:
This module is equipped with our unique installation help and status indicator LED. The LED signals a correct installation and shows the status of the module in a clear and easy to understand way.

LED OFF Ignition OFF:
CAN bus and module are in low-power standby mode. This is normal.

Ignition ON:
Either power connection or CAN bus connection is interrupted. Troubleshooting: Check the two wire taps for 12V and ground as well as the CAN connectors. Also make sure the CAN polarity is correct.

LED permanently ON
- Ignition OFF: Should not happen! CAN bus and module should enter standby mode after max. 1 min. The LED MUST turn off at some point.
- Ignition ON: Module is connected to CAN and power, but does not receive the correct data. Recheck all connections thoroughly.

LED blinks
CAN Bus is active, the module is connected correctly and ready for use.


Programming
This module is equipped with our interactive setup feature to allow easy setting of the desired options.



All programming is done by using the blinker stalk (3) and the two green turn signal (indicator) arrows (1,2). Functions are indicated by the left arrow (1) and their settings are indicated by the right arrow (2). Navigation is done by pushing the stalk down (next function) or pushing it up (next setting). After selecting the last function or function setting, the setup automatically jumps back to the first function / lowest setting. Each time either a new function is selected or a function's setting is changed, the arrows will indicate the new status by first blinking the function (left arrow) and then the current setting (right arrow).

To enter programming mode, first make sure the key is not in the ignition lock. Tap the UNLOCK button on the remote fob, then push and hold the blinker stalk UP (only into the first position, not all the way!) until the left arrow blinks once to indicate function 1. Now let go of the stalk. From this point on you can navigate through the functions by pushing the stalk down and once the arrows are finished indicating the function and setting, change the setting by pushing it up. The new settings are active immediately.

To end programming mode, either wait for 30 sec. or insert the key into the ignition lock. End of programming mode is indicated by both arrows lighting up simultaneously for 1 second.

Examples: Function 1 (Module mode) is set to ON (setting 1): Left arrow blinks 1x to indicate function 1, then right arrow blinks once to indicate that this function is set to setting 1. In case the left arrow is finished blinking and the right arrow does not light up at all, the appropriate function is set to setting 0 / OFF and hence disabled.

Installation - Steps 1-3

1. IMPORTANT: Turn ignition off, and pull key from ignition lock before installing the module! Remove the trim by pulling out on the end (1) and the middle (2). Unclip the plugs from the START/STOP button and the button panel between the air vents.



2. Pull out the Climate Control panel and disconnect the plugs on it's back.



3. Remove cover plate from Multimedia unit keypad. Like all the other parts it is just snapped in place.



Installation - Steps 4-6
4. Remove the 4 screws shown in the picture. Then pull Multimedia unit out. Be careful not to scratch the gear shifter (use towel).



5. Unplug the large black plastic plug by squeezing the tabs (1) together while pulling outward (direction of the arrow).



6. Connect the module as shown by tapping the power and ground wires (thick red/green and thick brown wire), then cut the pair of twisted CAN BUS (orange/green and green) wires that goes to the pins directly next to the power wires (not the 2nd pair going to the little inserted plug). Connect the module harness between the CAN wires, orange/green and green from RADIO side connecting to wires in slots 10 and 2 respectively and orange/green and green from car wiring harness to 11 and 3. All wires are numbered in the picture. Connect all plugs, install module in back right corner pocket before sliding Multimedia unit back in.



Reinstall all covers and plugs. Installation is complete.

Hope this helps.

As soon as we are closer to completion, we'll start a new thread for the 08 models.

In the meantime - no info is being released on MY08 at the moment, it's still much too early.

You're correct, 2008+ e70 X5 is equipped with CCC iDrive and compatible.
oh the earlier x5 idrive was different? damn BMW.

can you shed some light on this other off tipic 09/08 nav thingy?

are you working on something that will allow an 08 idrive to function like the 09? The screens are different I think, so how would this work.

I would like more info cause it will determine what year car I buy?
pretty please.

So this works for a 2009 e70 X5?

Sorry guys, made a mistake - 2008 e70 X5 is still using CCC, previous post has been corrected.

We have not yet had an 09 X5 come through here, I can't confirm if they've made the jump to CIC iDrive or not.

Yes - upgrade paths are in development for those wanting to convert from CCC to CIC.

Interesting, does your NAV home screen look like this?
