Interesting. I ordered one of theirs to look at it. They spoke about how stable their voltage is due to using the best automotive components. I'll see when I get it. If not, then I have the Amazon ones.

LOL its the same thing as the amazon ones. I took it apart already. The last enbt adapter I ordered from them was pinned out wrong. I think they are starting to drop the ball. I would check the voltage of the adapter when you get it.

Well sh*t. There goes 50
You said the CS ones aren't that good and to buy the amazon ones instead. But they're the same?

That sucks. I haven't had any issues with the adapter. I do all the wiring and pinning myself however.

Anyone in here know anything about LIN bus? And LIN Bus chips?

I want to make a standalone volume knob and the CS adapter uses LIN for that.

They charged you 50 Euro? I normally pay 25 Euro.

Yeah, I saw them for 25 on eBay, but I was charged about 50 shipped. Oh well, looks like I'll just make them from now on.

And yeah, I confirmed the board, thanks for that!

So I can have a ZGW (with VIN mismatch) connected to KCAN2 at the same time as I've got the e-NBT adapter connected to KCAN2 without any problems?

I'm currently trying to get the BMW HeadUpScreen Retrofit KIT for Factory Navigation to work in a e-series with NBT EVO.
Already managed to get the navigation instructions to work, but want the SpeedLimitInfo as well, but for that I need a ZGW connected I think.
What HeadsUpScreen are you using?

I have an E93 with f-series EVO/ATM/TRSVC/ZGW

I would be very interested in getting a heads up unit to work. What headsup unit are you using?

I think he is using this thing:
https://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1063158
https://www.schmiedmann.com/en/bmw-f...2-30-2-410-673

This thing gets nav instructions from a phone-based garmin app though, not the factory nav, so i'm a bit confused on the mention of factory nav

Mashman out of curiosity, is your ZGW connected to just the NBT's KCAN2, or do you have it connected to other buses as well?

Exact same problem I faced when considering the NBT retrofit.

Your best bet is to buy the F30 aircon control unit module (very cheap) and connect it to a ZGW in your car. ZGW is obviously connected to the NBT.

Then take out the volume / button controller from it's F30 housing, dremel a suitable mounting position into the E90 housing and enjoy.

Unfortunately, I have since sold my Beemer.

It's not exactly a problem for me, just an enhancement.

My retrofits don't need a ZGW, so that's skipped.

I have an F25 radio panel, and "taking out" the volume knob requires desoldering the potentiometer off the PCB, which was not easy at all and I ended up basically destroying it. But at least I found out who makes the components and I'm currently trying to contact them to get information on how to make it work.
