Retrofitted CIC - coding needed?

I have just retrofitted a CIC, I had a CCC before so it was almost just plug'n'play all the way.

However.. There are a few nags.

1) PDC image only shows the rear sensor, but I have sensors front and rear. The beeping works both front and back - but not the visual PDC.

2) There is no option in the CIC to map the two buttons (star and diamond) on the steeringwheel.

3) Navigation voice - I'm not able to turn the navigation voice down, nor up.

4) I have a snapinadapter for an iPhone4 - can I not play music from it directly from the snapin adapter? Aux in and USB works just fine. But I had hoped that I could play internet radio through the iphone in the snapin adapter.

5) I have an option called "Internet" under "BMW Services". But the following message: "Online services not enabled or contract expired". if I replace the SIM - can I use this "Internet"?

6) Voice control is not working.


I'm not running an emulator - Navigation is somewhat working*. When first rebooting the CIC the navigation is working, if I turn off the car and leave it for some hours, then I have to reboot it again to get Navigation to work. If I do not reboot it - iut's just greyed out. IS this because it is script activated - and the script only runs@ boot time? What about updating the maps, will it be possible?


My car has the following options (plus others I do not think are important here)

- PDC front and rear, S508A
- Rainsensor, S521A
- Adaptive Xenon headlighst, S524A+S522A
- BMW Assist, S612A
- BMW Online, S616A
- BMW Teleservice, S6AAA
- Voice Control, S620A
- Comfort Access, S322A
- Professional HIFI, S676A
- USB/AUX, S6FLA
- Navigation BT, S7SPA
- Mobile phone prep., S633A
- Telemetrics, S8SCA

Coding is needed.

Recode CIC unit using NCSEXPERT (expermode profile).

1) yes, the car the unit came from had only rear PDC that's why it's not ok in your car. Recoding CIC unit ready.

2) In LCI cars these two buttons were replaced by SOURCE and CLOSE AC LOOP

3) Recoding needed.

4) No, it won't work in that way, you will probably need BMW APPS activated

5) Interent can be activated but you also need COMBOX retrofit to have interent via bt tethering. SIM card will not do the job here, it's useless in used car.

6) It should work after recodig if you have TCU.

AS far as I know you will need CIC emulator.

Ok, coding needed.

So it is not possible to reassign those two buttons - like I could with the CCC? I'd _really_ like one of them to be a mute button.

Yup, I have TCU.

That is the funny thing, Navigation works - sometimes. By the looks of it, it needs a reboot - if it has been in "deepsleep" (car left for hours). Then Navigation works just fine.

OK, it is working now. Builddate changed and added #6va (IIRC) to the VO.

Do I need to remove the CCC options from the VO? When using Rheingold - I get an error on CCC-ASK - since it does not reply.

You should just need to change build date and add $6VA. I don't recall there being any items that need to be removed.
