CIC Sat Nav Retrofitted.

I have finally got round to retrofitting the cic nav and its beautiful compared to the old nav(no Offence)
The system is easy to use and very clean and smooth with nice images and very accurate.
Ive used the Emulator supplied by bimmer tech and its faultless.

here are a couple of pics of the old and the new nav to compare.

I would recommend this upgrade if you already have ccc nav and more so if you dont as the feature is excellent and should be a good selling point if you ever sell the car.

No I don't just read the thread assumed you didn't have Nav when you bought the car.

anything is possible - but nav into a car with no nav, as opposed to the OP who has upgraded from the older DVD nav is not financially viable as it requires a new dash top etc.

mine had no nav 3 weeks ago.
i had the ccc retrofitted and then the cic.

its not as expensive as people think you can do it for around 1100 and alot of patience.

you can replace a ccc with cic very easily.

i know a guy who will fit and code for 200 after you have bought the emulator and screen cable.

the emu is on ebay for 180 and screen cable is 30

hope this answers a few questions

That looks really good lemans

I'm looking at getting the cic idrive fitted in my car but at the moment only have the bog standard radio. I don't think I would be able to do the job myself and would prefer to pay someone to do it for me. I'm in the west yorks area too so would the guy you know be willing to do a full install if I was to get the parts? Or if he prefers to provides the parts?

Cheers

You need a gps antenna whi h you can get for 7 on eBay,
I bought a genuine one and my sharkfin had to be removed to install.
The emulator bypasses the fsc codes you would need to buy from bmw to be able the maps which is around 400.

Looks like a good mod but it would way down on my list of things to do. And id probably want a BMW speicalist doing a job like that.
Does this now mean you can watch tv on it?

Mstyle has a module for that costing about £200+ to add to the basic Nav option.

it was done by a bmw specialist.
the module on ebay also has tv/dvd enabled.

I cant put it at the bottom of my list as its all done and my car is fully loaded.

Forgot to ask lemans. Does your idrive have internet access as well? And how is this done? Is it using your phone as a modem?

I'm very interested in the retrofit just wondering after you fit the emulator does the car require further coding then or is it plug and play??
