Please snap a picture of the connector on your radio and email it to me so we can find out what configuration you have. Include your full name as reference.

Tom I would like to get the Silverline kit with radio interface. I have Nav so is there anything extra I would need to buy? Also I will probably have this installed if I can find a reputable shop in San Antonio to do it . Do the installers need to put the dice module somewhere that I can get to it or can it be stored somewhere behind the dash out of sight? I.E. will I need access to the module once installed? Ready to order as soon as I hear back.
Thanks in advance.

In a NAV environment, you must use the trunk interface kit.

Let me know if you need anything else.

I'm working to see if I can get your package returned since it has already shipped, if not - you will need a different wiring harness.

I'll follow up to your email shortly.

Hey Tom, I work really close to European Auto Source. Is it possible to purchase and pick up a DICE unit there or do I have to order it online and have it mailed? I rather not have to wait if I don't have to. Thanks.

Mein Auto: 01 330xi
Purchased the DICE Silverline, install all done on my 01 330xi, business radio, video iPod with 1.3 software, switches set per the instructions (Off,ON). Now have a few, hopefully simple, questions.
1. Should the title of songs appear in my head unit display?
2. I can't seem to be able to switch between different playlists without disconnecting the iPod, setting to the playlist I want, and then re-connecting.

I may have answered my own quesiton by checking further back in the forum. Looks like my iPod switches should both be off. Would you please confirm this?

Thanks!
