▀▄ eas - mObridge iPod interface available for e9x M3!

The mObridge iPod Kit seamlessly integrates the iPod with the head-unit of your MOST-equipped vehicle. The majority of newer BMW vehicles are equipped with an internal data (transporting audio, video, voice, data, and all other information and entertainment content) network, connected by optical fiber, known as "MOST". mObridge are experts in this technology and are therefore able to provide BMW drivers with technically superior solutions at value that is unmatched by solutions offered by BMW themselves or other aftermarket alternatives.



The mObridge AUDIO iPod interface is not limited to 250 songs or folders like the BMW CD changer or BMW's own iPod kit, but supports the entire iPod contents as well as providing an auxiliary audio input and allowing manual mode control. It is available for vehicles whether or not the vehicle supports MP3 -- in the BMW models that do not support MP3, mObridge will emulate CD tracks.

The mObridge AUDIO product line seamlessly integrates the iPod into the vehicle's multimedia network to allow full control and access to all Playlists, Artists, Albums, Genre, All Songs as well providing an auxillary input audio connection for external additional audio devices. The audio interface also provides full control of Random modes, Repeat and Scan as well as providing the ability to switch the iPod out of lockout mode (most other iPod vehicle kits require the iPod interface be locked out from the user) and provide manual control over the iPod and the ability to use simple track up and down. The iPod is also charged while attached to the interface using USB charging. This is also a unique advantage versus competitor solutions that either may not be able to charge your iPod or they will not support the latest generation of iPod that only charge via the USB connection.

Standard Features
- Supports iPod Mini, 4th Gen, 4th Gen Photo, Nano, 2nd Gen Nano, iPod Video, 3rd Gen Nano, iPod Classic, iPod Touch, iPhone (2G & 3G)
- Firmware upgradeable via memory card for future features.
- 24 bit ADC stereo for a more complete experience.
- 500uA Sleep Current. Lower sleep current draw than OEM specifications. - Configurable for all vehicles via iTune's MP3 tag.
- Configurable for First five playlists, numbered playlists or full folder support for iPod browsing.
- Paging to gain access to lists greater than the CD limitation of 99 giving full access to the iPod. Also possible on radio's without text support.
- Last disc, last folder, last track memory retention for fast startup.
- Access to Playlists/Artists/Albums/Genre/All Songs.
- Random, Repeat, Scan options.
- Auxiliary input for external audio source.
- Exit iPod lockout mode for manual control with the ability to continue track up/down from the steering wheel controls.
- iPod USB charging.
- Bypass switch to remove interface from the MOST ring, allowing "undetectable mode" for dealer visits.
- Dedicated Auxiliary override for phone system input.

Professional CD (non I-Drive)

STEP 1:
Under "Audio", select "CDC" (cd changer)



STEP 2:
This screen will look exactly the same as if you had a cd in the cd changer. You can set up playlists, using your radio preset buttons here. Select "List" to take you to your typical iPod menu.



STEP 3:
Once you have selected "list" you will see your standard iPod menu, showing "Artist/playlist/albums/podcasts etc etc". I selected "Artist"



STEP 4:
Once you are in the "Artist" menu, you can browse using the right knob on your stereo, just like you would with an iPod.



STEP 5:
Select an artist to listen to.



Step 6:
Select a song to listen to.

Thanks for posting all this info, but you left out the most important part - How much do they cost?

1. Cost of Unit
2. Cost of install
3. Cost to code??

Pm'ing me directly to get an install price takes just as much time as posting on this thread. It's not that I don't want to publish costs on the thread, it's mainly because cost can be different for different vehicles. Believe it or not I still get PMs from guys with E46's on this forum as well

Install cost can all depend on several options such as Year/Model of your BMW, as well as if you have a CD changer, if it's capable of MP3 support ETC...

If anybody wants to get an install price, feel free to send me a PM

Can someone explain this:
"Bypass switch to remove interface from the MOST ring, allowing "undetectable mode" for dealer visits."

Why would you need this? Does installation of this unit void the warranty??? Doesn't the dealer need to know you installed this so they can code the computer??

It's thinking ahead.

Depending on software updates (past, present or future), the mObridge can be put into sleep mode in which it will be removed from the MOST look to prevent any programming errors that may occur.

So, warranty? Does it void warranty or not?

Hey Tom, do you have any additional information on mObridge - Bluetooth Handsfree/iPod interface for e9x 3-series? It looks like a nice solution for a bluetooth retrofit and iPod install. I can't seem to find any reviews or install DIY's.

Installation is exactly like the BMW iPod kit, with the exception of the microphone wire that is routed to the sunroof panel.

I know this is older but can you PM me a price on this and what is involved in the install? I don not have a CD changer in my 06 330i E90 if that makes a difference. Do you recommend letting the dealer do the install or is it something a hack who is not afraid to work on his own car can handle? Thanks!!!

Yes - this will work on all e9x applications, even those not originally prewired for a CD Stacker.
