when I installed your MMI I did exactly what you asked .

You told me you only wanted the features your old MMI
had set to AKTIV .

Your exact words were =
( just put what my car has & what the old MMI has )

I even had to convince you to let me add the Aux just
in case you decided to add the plug on a later date .

Rookie, do you know what was done other than activating the oil level menu to the MMI? I have already done that months ago and it still says updating whenever I check on it.

Thanks,

Jeff

Just to re-clarify. This thread is all over the place...

I would like to plug in my Blackberry to my MMI so I can stream Pandora in my car (or IPOD only). I have a 2002 745i pre-facelift. Based on this thread here is the items what I need. Please correct where wrong:

Post Facelift MMI (2005-2008)
USB Diagnostics tool with GUI to enable correct bits for new features in car (AUX=Yes, BLUTH=Yes)

These two items will allow me to acheive the Aux input of a media device that uses the headphone jack to plug into correct? Where does the AUX plug come from? Hopefully the new ASK is not required to do this, although I am having occasional problems with static in my front speakers and that has been tied to ASK units.

Sorry to keep asking this question but I want to make sure before I commit to a new MMI. The GUI interface bit changes dont scare me to much. But I think I will have the new MMI installed professionally.

Hi, the MMI is very easy to replace. You will need to get the AUX plug for around $72.00. As for the ASK you need a 06- 08 ask unit. Then some coding to marry the MMI an ASK unit to the car an finally coding to get AUX to show in the entertainment menu of the MMI.

Hi, Like Rookie has said, you will need to change the ASK to the facelift version too, this is where the AUX jack actually plugs in. The old ASK has mo provision for AUX input.

If you want bluetooth then you will need to replace the telephone module in the boot, this is covered in detail in the 'How to retrofit bluetooth' thread in the DIY section. Myself and many others have contributed a large amount of information about how to perform this upgrade, read every page and follow it through. Its a fair bit of work and not as simple as swapping out the MMI.

Hope this helps

Stuart

Ace, you say you have yours working. Could you please let the rest of us know how to get ours working as well. Not sure why you won't respond other than to say that yours works. I thought this forum was about sharing information. You obviously have gotten something done that the rest of us could really use. Why not share? Why ignore my PM on the subject? If you are too busy just say so. I don't mean to be harsh, but I just don't understand why you took the time to tell me yours works, but didn't answer the rest of my question about how I can get mine to work.

Thanks,

Jeff

I'm sure this post could use its own thread, but I am getting really pissed at all of the juvenile fighting and he said she said that is going on. We are all adults and the discussing and sharing of information is what made this site what it is. Countless people come hear to get and provide help, and when I see one of the most helpful members choose not to help any longer because of disputes with another member it makes me want to scream. The mods need to do a better job a monitoring these situations and dealing with them appropriately. This forum will not be the same if egos rule instead of the things that bond us, which is the love of our BMW's, and the great feeling of solving a problem for another member or having someone provide us with the help we need to fix an issue or retrofit a new module.

Please remember why we came here in the first place. People will end up leaving and not coming back if these issues aren't properly dealt with. Hopefully I don't get banned for speaking my mind. I just want to help and get things back to the place they were before this war of words started. It's not productive and losing the help of great members is not acceptable.

Jeff

Dear AceFX,

I can easily program my MMI to SHOW or to NOT SHOW virtually every aspect of the MMI.

So far I have found that most of the commands are written into command line 3002 of the MMI in ASCII code.

eg. if I change pos1: change 55 to 5F, the MMI will now show DVD and L7, pos2: change 0A to 2E and it shows front seat heating, pos4: change 8C to 49 and it will show Bluetooth, pos8: change 00 to D0 and it shows DTC, pos9: change 00 to 8F and it shows AUX, etc.....

I can control the MMI showing CDC, TV, DVD, AUX, CBS, OIL Level, BLUETOOTH, REAR MONITOR, DTC, EDC, DSC, Menu functions, Front Seat Heating Left and Right, L7, to name a few.

So if you have this tool, and you need to activate something, let me know and I will share the codes I have worked out so far to help you.

Ace

Hi Jeff,

everytime I share stuff, it's gets plagiarised by a member and then when I stand up for myself I get banned.

Even the site admins ripped into me.....

Considering all the information I have provided......

DASHSOFT
Re-coding MMI
Complete Interior Facelift
ANALOGUE to DIGITAL TV
ASK
IHKA
KOMBI
Retrofit Comfort Access
Retrofit Rear Entertainments System
Mileage Correction
AUX Input
TRUNK repair and refit of Struts
Just name a few...
etc
etc
etc

I have got banned the most times......all because I defend my work against a person who's name I am not allowed to mention or I will be banned again....... WTF

Ace

Hi Jeff,

one other thing.....

they sell my information to other members...... over $150

I was doing this to share, but not for someone else to sell to other members.

I have always helped everyone for free......

And I am the one who gets banned..... many times...... for standing up for myself.

Regards

Ace

Ace, sorry to hear. I just want to say that I appreciate all the support you have provided to this Forum. I would hate to lose your knowledge base. I hope things blow over. I have been banned on a motorcycle forum before for petty stuff. I hope things get better for you.

marshalpaul745,
I purchased and installed the 2012 Nav DVD 3 months ago. I did the facelift about 2 months ago and two things that should of change didn't. No clouds in the background and the "ABC" when entering location in the Nav system didn't move to the top, as everyone else's did. I had someone check things for me and it looks like my DVD Nav Player in the trunk is the older model. So I need to change it out for a newer model to achieve those upgrades. I haven't decided if it's worth the extra dollars... Maybe someone else has a better answer...
My Logic 7 amp just went out, so that's a priority now.
