Cool MMI help needed in Atlanta area

Is there anyone in the Atlanta area who can unlock some options in my MMI? I really want the video in motion and a couple other things.

Hmm, guess nobody in the Atlanta area is doing coding. Oh well, I ordered me a cable which should be here by Friday. Got all the software installed on my laptop. Is there a Dashsoft coding list of everything I can code floating around? I tried searching and see a few video links but they are broken.

Looks like this talks more in depth using NCS rather than Dashsoft. I was thinking the coding procedures were totally different. Guess I will have to wait on the cable to verify and compare. I have NCS installed as well so either way this is good info and a great starting point.

My cable arrived today but the car went to the shop this morning . Looks like my amp is blown, battery needs to be replaced, time for rear brakes, and leaking oil from the timing belt case Guess I will have to wait on trying my hand at coding.

Ok, finally got my cable working and all my files corrected in my INPA install. I purchased my cable from a guy on the M3 board who sells them on Ebay and it is working good for me so far. This morning I got brave enough to actually try and code video on the move. Somehow I must have missed a step but I was successful at getting the DVD controls up front. Very helpful today with the little one in the back seat to control the video from up front.

Going to retry coding video on the move this weekend. I disassembled the correct files but must have not replaced them in my DATEN files. Gotta figure out how to change these text files back to the .dat extension
