My ULF Bluetooth is dead. Replace with newer TCU advice?

I hear they don't make the ULF anymore and they cost more. So I could go with a newer TCU that has more features. Just not sure what one to go with for my 2009 328i..

I kinda wanted to get the bmw assist online search and what not... Am I going to end up paying 1k out to get this done even tho everything is wired for the TCU unit?:

What is better about the dension gateway 500s bluetooth? I dont use apple products btw and it costs 429.99 for the kit and a TCU used looks to be around 400.00

I believe the Dension 500 s bluetooth will work

I believe the Dension gateway 500 s bluetooth will work
It will give you a2dp music streaming as well and usb.
See Dension website. New model by the way.
See there website you can download the manual and instrallation
instructions.

If you want BMW assist you will have to go the BMW route .
See the bluetooth sticky at the top . There are quite of few versions
of the mulf and or tcu its complicated.

Maybe you can consider changing a MUFL2 with USB. In this case you can play songs in usb key or portable hard disk.

I ever consider Dension GW500. In order to support AD2P you have to buy additional optional, not so cheap in this case, and it works only with i-drive.

Not true the new Desnion gateway 500s BT has it.

Not true now the new Dension gateway 500s BT has it.
A2DP is integrated into the unit and but it is more expensive at around
500 to 550 on ebay.

See the Dension website this is a new model.
And its listed as working with the Pro Radio not just
the idrive although you get better video display features
as you have a display for it to work with.
