FS: Media COMBOX with the latest software and coding

Folks,


I will sell my COMBOX Media which I bought for 250+ just around 6 month ago for 175 + delivery. Has latest software and fully coded to support all COMBOX Media functionality. All you need is to plug that and code to CIC, if wiring is not there in car obviously wiring will be required.


PM me know if you need it, won't stay for long.

Okay, so it doesn't allow me to add these functions, only if I already have ipod / usb fitted. So all this gives me is internet. Booooo.

This is possible to install only if you already have CIC (factory or retro-fitted). If you have CIC and get this installed you will get following feature:

Bluetooth audio streaming, a2dp
6FL - USB audio
6NR - BMW Apps (Facebook, Twitter, Internet Radio etc)
Album art
iPhone/iPod Video out
Internet
BMW Live
I have had report that new iOS 6 is giving MAP profile which COMBOX can use to show SMS/Email on the CIC.

Keep in mind if you need functionality like video out you will need to buy baseplate and snap-in extra and actually they cost more then the combox combined.

This completes the CIC retrofit, it is like other half.

Even if you buy it from dealership it is very cheap to provide these functionality given we know the price of general stuff sold at the dealer.

Ok. So I have CiC, but no USB port or anything, so does this give me a USB port to work with?

Does your car have bt? Yes it will along with all other functionalities described above.

I can give you full instruction to install it and can even code it for you. PM me for more details.

What do you currently have? Coding is must, reshuffling of wires could be needed if you have standard tcu.

Not sure what you mean, but it's a 2010 X5 with pro nav, CIC, bluetooth and voice.

Should be able to do the coding myself.

If you can code it yourself then easy peasy, I can give you the wiring details. Can you give me the INPA UIF/AIF list from your car.

Asfar

Can you update the software on my CIC retrofit to be compatible with using a Combox. I have recently purchase the Bluetooth Retrofit kit with USB/Audio interface (SA644 and SA6FL) and will need a Combox to complete this retrofit?

Software update of CIC is quite risky business mate. Technically I can do it but I don't want to get into this situation. I don't even have a spare E90 CIC to give you incase something goes wrong with yours during update.

What version do you have? Combox is supported since quite a while now, full feature comes with the version v41/v42. You can do it in stages if you like and this is what I would recommend.

Since past few weeks I have been really busy and haven't been working on car and car stuff sales, this combox is still with me. Let me know if you need it.

That is a tricky one.

If you know coding then easy to find using ncs but if not then you have to look for clues. One clue I know which is for v41/v42 is in the nav screen you get letter "i" in the middle of circle in the bottom left which gets crossed once you press you cic idrive controller down. This removes the two boxes on the top and bottom of right hand side. Do you have that?

I get the "I" in the middle of the of the circle like you said, but when Ian read my unit it definitely showed it was on version C10.

I have sent you PM regarding making payment.
