The CIC is the same in F30 and F10, but you need to get the right version (Europe, U.S., Asian) for your market. The CID Screen for F30 of course is different than the one for F10, so do not buy F30 CID.

Which connector number are you talking about?

If you are going to retrofit Navigation system though, why wouldn't you retrofit the newer and much improved NBT system instead of CIC system?

With CIC in F10, Activation is via the MOST bus, and a MOST Activation Module is expensive compared to NBT CANBUS Activation Module, plus NBT has integrated Combox.

Thanks for reply,the unit I am looking at does not have connector no 3, but has a 3 or 4 pin connector in a rectangular shape burgundy colour at bottom right corner.
I wanted to put nbt in , as I can get a cheap screen and unit, but as my car is a January 2011 model I was told it can't be done , as kcan runs at different speeds

You can replace your ZGW with new one, and NBT will work.

That is a separate issue from ZGW.

NBT beginning with HW:10 no longer has Internal Gyro Sensor, as Gyro Data is now coming from ICM. The solution for this is the Activation Module you buy will need to have Gyro Sensor in it.

according to kate at bimmer retrofit, no such adapter exists, and they are not liable to be making one as they reckon the market for it is too small.They make it for the e series as there is more demand for it

Check with CarSystems:

I believe they are working on an fNBT Activator with Gyro sensor.

shaun
i have come across a company in poland who will script activate an nbt system,so it is plug and play, NO activater lead needed, and supply you with a code so you can upgrade the maps at a later date by bmw. it is on hw 7 so will have the inbuilt gyro for 300 euros for the coding.
have you came across this before, i know they do script activation for cic, but hadn't heard of it for nbt

No, and this surprises me as Telnet / FTP ports are locked on NBT, so I do not know how that is possible.

Hi

yes this system can work without emulator, but before you install need make coding.
Price for coding is 300 GBP
After coding you will get system with 2014 maps and without any emulator. You can update maps or software in the future with no problem. I will give you number. Whith that number you can download new updates from bmw.

And this is why I don't buy things from eBay... "download new updates from BMW" ? Really ?

"Buycheap310" is located in Lithuania.

I trust Shawn. Not that Buycheap knucklehead.

(he changed coding price from 300 euro to 300 GBP - that should tell you enough that he is full of s--t)
