Is this possible on a car with no sat nav?


I have a '57 plate 325i e92 and looking at this rather than 300 on an installed parrot.

Yes I know this is going to be a lot more but presumably would add a lot more on resale.

Cheers

Both combox media and telematics have differing processes- Combox media can be programmed to use bluetooth tethering to deliver internet access, whereas (from what i understand) telematics utilises the unit's gsm unit for this, but will not work unless a existing assist account is migrated by bmw to your new unit's imei.

hope this helps.

I've done the whole lot. CIC with 2012 maps, DAB, Combox with 6nr apps. I've just managed to get Pandora radio working as well

The only thing that doesn't work is my Assist account because BMW won't transfer the imei over. Mind you, Assist isn't much use anyway. You can always phone for assistance or send maps to your phonebook in place of send to car. Then just navigate to the contact.

Would any of you guys that have done the CIC retrofit be willing to make up a loom for the CIC controller and the screen? I am happy to pay for what parts and your time.

I know I can get the screen wire that goes from the screen to the cic unit, but what about the wire that powers the screen. Would I need an Indy to that too?

you need a k/can connector from the dealer,they are 2.76.
The wires are there but at the moment you have 8 pins on 2 rows whereas the k/can has them in a single file so you just relocate the pins.

I forgot to mention I am going from a non i drive set up to fitting the double scoop dash and cic sat nav unit.

Thank you for your input, it very much appreciated.
