CCC retrofit

The GPS antenna can be replaced this:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Car-GPS-Navigati...item5639db4105
This dashboard is installed in the reception perfect! The price is much less than the factory antenna. You do not need the whole back of the car is broken. The roof cut off, etc..
An original fin antenna shall be assigned and affixed to cover, because of the design.
Me so.

Still,to get all this at this price seems like its worth it, but the quality of labor looks unmatched. Just to get a 6CD changer now I believe its close to $1k

I've just bought everything to convert my mother's E90 320 business nav to professional and will make the change over in a few weeks. I have my own GT1 and OPS head so will do the programming including activating SA620 myself.

You can retrofit CD for much less than $1k. All up it will cost me AUD$500 for a brand new CD unit with all trim fittings etc.

Hey Dennis,

Can you tell me what parts you ordered and do you have a howto for the "Business to Professional nav" upgrade?

I want to do this upgrade to. I am also looking into what I need to reprogram with Edibias to make this thing work.

Some questions:

* Wy don't we make a DIY for the Business to Prof upgrade?
* Will the Idrive low work with the professional?
* Do you need the voice command Idrive High with microphone?
* Is there a CCC fan harnas in a car that has the Business nav?

I'm new here btw, sory for this first post.

Greets from Holland!

BMW in the past came out with this. The retrofit kit is likely no longer available, but the parts are out there...

Thanks for the installation manual Booste4075!

I understand you need a other tool (the OPS SSS) for reprograming a second hand Pro nav unit to work in your car. Does someone know how this works and where I can get this tool? I know there are some sellers On Ebay with this kind of Hongkong devices.

Do you have a P/N for the beige trim around your A/C controls. I can't find it on realoem, the picture on realoem looks nothing like this.

Thanks

Thanks booster, was expecting to find it under vehicle trim.

Finally managed to get my double scoop dashboard in from Germany this week after having it on order since the middle of January.

Amazing writeup! Glad to see that there are those out there that are willing to go the extra mile to share their hard work with others.

Morning all! OK so I am new to the BMW so please be gentle, I have read through this thread with great interest and cannot find an answer to my specific query so here goes.

I have a 2006 E90 with Business Navigation, it has blue tooth also installed and working, can I easily retro fit the professional system? or does anyone know of someone near Manchester England that could do it for me?

Thanks
Ian

Look back a few posts (#406 to be exact) - there are OEM instructions to do the Business to Pro retrofit. Shouldn't be that hard since you're not changing the dash out and already have Bluetooth. (I can't help with that who England thing.. )

Jesus booster you must be an engineer or one hella determined BMW fanatic! I guess this shows that ANYTHING is possible in the world and you sir are my hero!

Now only if I had about 2K to retrofit this... sigh... Maybe I'll stick with my cheap lighting mods hahaha and save some money to buy a new bimmer one day.

Sorry all, I was out of town and kinda out of touch (nice vacation).

Thanks. Anyway, no...not an engineer, just a dedicated enthusiast I guess. I'm trying to do like three other projects on this car right now so I am definitely keeping myself occupied with mods.

I would imagine parts prices are really coming down for this sort of retrofit as the 2nd-gen parts are becoming available and since there are more and more wrecked E90's out there everyday. I did it for ~$1500 after selling my old radio and dash...I'm sure it could be done for much less if you were really shopping it and found people to help you program it or procured the tools yourself.

Neither business or pro i-drive is plug-and-play, as programming is required...and not the kind the dealer can do. There'd be no sense in doing a business retrofit - you don't really gain anything IMO.
