other than that it's all good
thats good to hear.. does the rear pdc sensors still work? and is it a must for the permanent live wire? not sure but i gather you fixed it to somewhere in the fuse box? cheers mate.

Rear pdc works fine. Yes you need to find the permanent live fuse otherwise all your settings will wipe when car us off. Mine was an engine or gearbox fuse. Location varies per car

Sorry but no kit supports the phone buttons. And unless you're planning to cut and join a new wire. The oem mic wont work as different connection and qire not long enough

yeah thats what i thought as well, so i ordered the kit you ordered. but then i spoke to someone at dynamic sounds, and they said the latest connects2 one works with phone buttons as well. the revised kit was 10 extra. basically you need the kit with these two:

CONNECTS2 CTSBM005.2 (this supports phone controls)
CONNECTS2 CTRBM001 (this is for the rear pdc)

check this:
http://www.connects2downloads.co.uk/...logues/SWC.pdf

about the oem mic - do you have it in yours? i have long enough cables and even though the oem mic has 3 connections, the clear on the is the ground wire so technically we should be able to connect the other two wires to the appradio.

Nice one. I dont have oem mic in mine but was considering getting one for oem look but my research said it had different connection. Please let me know how the phone button works

The mic will probably be a different sensitivity anyway, so even if you use the oem one it will probably be too quiet.
Pioneer mics are very sensitive.

so i installed it this weekend. all works fine (even the phone buttons). got arliberator and everything is working smooth.

only thing i'm disappointed about is the fascia panel. this thing does not flush and fitting this was a night mare. still kinda popping out at the bottom.

so i've ordered another fascia panel: http://www.dynamicsounds.co.uk/conne...l-p-27106.html

gIzzE: you are right - the pioneer mic is very good. i routed the pioneer mic to the dome where the oem mic is. i tried the oem mic too, but it wasn't working properly with the appradio. but no worries, happy with the pioneer mic.

once you get everything sorted how about some pics? just got my first e92 m sport last week but was disappointed with the sound and the fact that theres a usb port in the arm rest with the aux input but the pro HU wont recognise this and allow me to select "usb". also checked n the boot and there the bluetooth module but once again nothing in the HU about bluetooth. so thought forget it, got myself the app radio 2 with the android kit for 195! let me know how ou get on with yours

with appradio app, the apps you can use are limited. with arliberater, you get to use whatever app on your android phone on the appradio. basically mirror of your android phone.

BWM 335i - 2008 sedan - non-nav

It's good to see that some of you have the AppRadio installed.

I just got back from my local radio shop where they pulled the radio out and said it was connected with fiber optic and that there were not going to be able to use the harness adapter that they originally thought they were going to be able to use.

Are they BSing me ? They then turned around and said I had to get a new amp and rewire all the speakers followed by it was going to cost me twice as much.

Any help, pointers anyone can give me would be appreciated. I was really excited about getting the AppRadio 3 installed and now I'm really bumbed out. At this point, I'm ready to do it myself if I can get some pointers here.

I have a 2008 BMW 335i Sedan - non-Nav with the premium system I think - it has the rear door speakers

Regards
David J.
