Info on E90 iDrive and TV ... confused !

I have searched and searched and not come up with any conclusion as to how to get TV working.

Do I need a seperate module? or is it ready built in the car and just need some software to unlock it ?

If a seperate module is required then where can i get one from ? prices , part numbers etc.

Probably gonna get flamed for repost .. but the search engine on these forums is pants.

TIA

I too was looking at this and I managed to get a BMW retrofit part number and price for my Prof Sat Nav.
BMW Part: 65500416737
Price: 808.

That price has put me off a little..

wounded !!

ouch and double ouch...
do you have any more information .. pics . .links or anything like that ?.. i'd like to get my head around what i would be buying .. i mean robbed of, where it goes... any extra wiring and indeed if it can be retro fitted .. etc etc.

The reason i ask is becuase i looked under the boot flooring and there is a big shiney box which i have told is the GPS unit .. next to that is a big space for another big shiney box .. just wondering if the TV unit would go there

I don't think it is economic to retro-fit the TV module to a car that hasn't got it as standard - not to mention the coding required by BMW etc afterwards. Quite possibly a right ballache of a job.

ballache seems an understatement .. i have found a german verison of the install .. attached hopefully .. not too clear what is actually in the car already and what isnt but seems a whole heap of trouble !

If it were possible, I would probably retrofit the TV module - but saying that, I've always thought that TV in a car was a bit pointless, not to mention the crap reception etc.

The LCI iDrive will allow the viewing of DVDs while the emergency/hand brake is engaged. You can listen to the soundtrack if the brake is released.

I don't have any pics or other information. It was just a phone call to the service dept. at a dealership, and Dr Dave is right about coding...another 350, so over 1158 for TV? I think I will deffo give it a miss

But I know what you meant

Not quite tv, but this allows you to play ipod videos on the idrive and it also accepts external inputs.
