E70 CIC retrofit coding questions

Just finished retrofitting CIC into my '08 X5. I changed build date, added $609 (Pro Nav) to the VO, it wouldn't accept $6VA (CIC), wrote new VO to CAS and FRM modules, then coded the CIC. All features work EXCEPT, traffic and voice. Voice activates, but doesn't seem to hear anything I say. Do I need to add $620 (voice) and $6UH (traffic) to the VO also? Thanks.

UPDATE....Problem solved. Adding $620 & $6UH to VO and recoding CIC have enabled voice and traffic updates.

Do not write FA with changed build date to CAS and FRM. This is too common mistake, it will cause trouble when coding and programming other modules except CIC. Always keep original build date in CAS and FRM. You can code (SG_CODIEREN) with modified FA, without actually writing (FA_WRITE) the VO to CAS or FRM. Just read FA from CAS, edit it, then directly do the SG_CODIEREN job.

Thanks. I'll change the VO back to original. A new problem has come up. The CIC restarts every time I put car into reverse. It didn't do this before coding. Any suggestions?

Sounds strange, I have never heard about that kind of problem. Does it stop restarting if you remove 620 and 6UH?

Strange indeed. It did it before I added 620 and 6UH when all that was added was the 609. Almost seems like it's looking for the rear view camera, which car doesn't have.
