7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

Mein Auto: E65 740i LCI
BT, USB and Aux in an E65 with Dension Gateway

My car is an early facelift E65 740i. I installed the Gateway 500S BT in my car yesterday and it works 100% as expected. All I had to code was +Ipod to get the interface working. BT calls and audio work perfectly as does usb and aux.

I coded out option $638 from the VO and added $633 which allows the phone book to sync as well as the BT phone's name to show on the iDrive. Only thing not working is voice command but I suspect I simply have to loop out the most cable from the old TCU. Bit to be honest the voice command becomes completely obsolete when you can use Siri pr Google to communicate with the phone.
