ICOM is the official BMW coding head not the typical Dcan cable that most people use to code. The programs are usually the same but the Dcan cannot communicate with the radio properly.

The method of coding will be the same as with NcsExpert but with the ICOM Head instead of Dcan. You can google ICOM and see what they look like or I can take a picture of mine tonight.

I didn't realise you could buy a headhunt with bluetooth in. This seems much simpler than adding a bluetooth module and wiring it all in... I think..

Would this head unit work on my 06 car?

Does anyone know if this would work with a bmw usb hub? I have a hub laying around and a snap in adapter (eject box) so I started pondering.

A quick dumb question here... Can I use my old mic instead of install a new one? Like a plug and play and coding only. Or I have to wire somewhere through the old mic..I have a logic 7 with build in phone system. I have AUX but I don't have usb.



To be specific:
S639A Preparation f mobile phone cpl. USA/CDN S645A BMW US Radio
S663A Radio BMW Professional
S677A HiFi System Professional DSP
S693A Preparation BMW satellite radio
S694A Provisions for BMW 6 CD changer


Thanks!

your mic now wired to module in trunk
you need to wire it to radio
factory mic wire have disconnectable male/female joint in the passenger footwell, near door
you can buy shielded 3-wire, crimp 2 pins on both sides and then you can rewire this joint to radio

Thank for your replay ptpending

Did you mean I need to find out where is the wire in the glove box and clamp on the factory wire and disconnect the old one? You didn't mean that I need to go to the truck to find the module right? Can you show me the photo where it is actually locate at? I am assuming in the glove box fuse panel area not sure which part I should looking at.

Many thanks,

You mean after reset the module, there is no need for rewire? Just like the old phone bluetooth mic. Function as it used to be? To me it make more sense, since I already have the bluetooth for phone call.

Hey Jose,

Thanks very much for all the info. I had given up on getting OEM looking bluetooth until I accidentally stumbled upon your thread. Iv got it all working (bluetooth and USB) on my e92 but I have a question.

I have seen on the newer models with professional headunits that you can get enhanced bluetooth which allows the streaming of music over bluetooth. Does anyone know if it is possible to code this on for the e92? I believe the BMW option code is S6NKa and S6NLa.

Thanks again,

Marcos

edit: I should mention that the radio has part number: 61529343207 and has production date of 31/01/2014

As far as I have found, Streaming Bluetooth can only be done with CIC and Combox. I do not believe it can be done with standard radio Professional and Combox.
Someone tell me if I am wrong.
