When testing is completed. We're not committing to an ETA until after the results are seen from the 5-series being scheduled. This can be 2 weeks or it can be 2 months depending on results.

The kit is complete and working perfectly on a bench, testing in a real world environment will determine when we're ready to release.

Absolutely - we begin 5-series testing this weekend, this should be the final stage of testing.

Testing is scheduled for this Saturday as a follow-up to the 7-series we had in earlier and will be verifying the stability of new code. We are also testing compatibility on an early MY04 5-series without NAV.

More to follow...

MASK is the earlier version of iDrive, your 550i will have CCC.

It depends on the production date, but a snapshot of your screen will be able to tell right away.

Absolutely, the kit will be a very simple DIY in the 7-series.

We're proud to announce that we are now an authorized m0bridge technology parter:





The install was completed in our volunteer MY04 7-series and MY04 5-series on Saturday with very good results. iPod connectivity is exactly the same as if you were using your CD Changer either through the steering wheel or iDrive controller.

Audio quality is that of CD and sounded simply awesome in the 7, with full charging capabilities from the device when connected.

The 5-series was prewired for the CD Changer - but unfortunately, not activated. We will have our Autologic programmer here tomorrow and finalize the install on our 5-series. We will also be testing an alternative way for text display on this vehicle, which is using the M-ASK system.

For ASK (early 7-series models), there will be no text display, but we may have a way around this as further testing is already underway.

We have the kits in stock at this time and will be placing them on the website shortly. We also will be performing installation at our facility in Santa Ana, CA.

It's not a limitation of the iPod kit, it's the ASK iDrive/NAV system in your 7-series. You do not have text capabilities. We are working on an alternative solution - but will require separate hardware if you want this option.
