You are incorrect.
ALL E85 and E86 models have the same basic functionality but in 2006 they (BMW) added a little more functionality.
The Head Unit has TWO 12pin connectors on the back for input. CB891-B (on left as seen from rear of head unit) is normally the port for the CD changer and CB891-C is the TV/AV/Aux input. You can have both the changer and the Aux operational at the same timeÖ No fakery involved here, but they are pinned a little differently from each other. These are the Alpine connector numbers.
The BMW numbers are this
CD Changer: X13321 (natural color)
Aux: X13598 (grey color)
In 2006 BMW added three more pins on the X13598 connector. Pins 3,4 and 10 were added.
This is how my wifeís Roadster is wired. My ///M just has the Aux input (no changer) so one of the sockets is empty. I know, I checked a long time ago.
BMW also have two different cables. One is the iPod cable which I think you have. The other is the Aux cable which is just an audio cable.
I donít have the iPod cable so I cannot really know how that works, but from what I understand is that it allows the head unit to communicate to your iPod/iPhone and control six preset playlists specifically named in your device????
I would be willing to bet, but donít really know, is that the dedicated iPod cable connects to CB891-C. I base this on what signals are actually on the pins. You have to disregard WHAT the signal names are and look at what they are trying to do.
All the data you need:
How does something immoral, when done privately, become moral when it is done collectively?
Furthermore, does legality establish morality?
Slavery was legal; apartheid was legal; Stalinist, Nazi, and Maoist purges were legal. Clearly, the fact of legality does not justify these crimes. Legality, alone, cannot be the talisman of morel people. - Walter E. Williams
