Powering up idrive on work bench

Can anyone tell me what the pinout for power to the idrive unit is and the required voltage?

I'm picking up a used idrive system and I would like to be able to power it up to ensure that it works. I'm assuming I just need to provide 12v DC to some pin on the unit.

Thanks,

I'm preparing to retrofit NBT so I have the same question. I found a pinout diagram (for NBT). Is it as simple as hooking up 12v and ground?

Usually, you need to have a CAS unit connected as well. The navigation system requires a wakeup signal from the CANBUS in order to turn itself on.

Otherwise, it just sits in an idle mode waiting for a signal from the vehicle to wake up.

BimmerRetrofit sells kits for this very purpose.
