I'm using the US/Canada DVD map and it measures in feet and can change to yards also, I think.

I didn't notice a fuse mounted on the in-trunk H/K amp. It's there suppose to be one? Or did I not see it?

Thanks for the heads up on the DVD Comp and waiting for the light to turn off before disconnecting the battery. The DVD Comp still works fine, thank goodness.
I guess that you have checked fuses #7 (seems to be the Radio fuse at 5 amps, but then you can see the radio stations in the screen so it must be good) and #41 (at 30 amps rating it should be the amp fuse) in the glove box... if not check them but do not take them out until you see the Nav Computer turning off...

My Ride: 330I
OEM NAV or Computer

Man this kit looks awesome and would go great in my 2001 330i but to be honest what does this really give me for the money $4000. I am really after bluetooth (cell phone) and gps. I am wondering couldn't I just install a 7inch touch screen with a laptop conversion and run M$ streets_&_Trips_2005 with the gps (retail $139) and works great on my current laptop and have everything I get with this nav system and more (full computer)? Any advice would be great.

Question about Bluetooth kit with the Nav

Hi Technic,
Thank you for sharing , you inspired me to do this retrofit. I installed the Nav system sucessfully, and everything works just fine. However, I recently installed the bluetooth kit from Advanced Autovations, and problems have occured since. After the bluetooth kit installed , I can make a phone call and answer, but I can't hear nor be heard. I am thinking if I connected the wires from the connector X13321 to the Nav harness correctly. However, My cd changer works just fine. Could you help me with this problem? Thank you

What car do you have? What year/production date?

To be heard, you should have the microphone connected. To hear, you should have connected these wires (Pins #1 and #2) correctly:

I have a 2001 325i produced in Sep/2000.
I already have the microphone connected and those two wires connected, so I guess I connected those two in wrong order. However, I just tried to switch those two wires, but I couldn't get them out of the socket casing. Do you know the parts # for the socket casing or how to get those wires out? Thank you very much for your information.

I guess that you read all the extra requirements to install the Bluetooth kit from Autovations in your 09/00...

http://www.advancedautovations.com/e46pre.html

... like an external amplifier for the phone.

To get those pins out of the plug I would use a watch screwdriver, the one that is extremely small. If you press the pin using the screwdriver thru the rectangular slot on top of the plug, you will push the pin tab down and release the pin from its socket.

Even if you do get to hear the phone, there's still the issue of why you cannot be heard. Check again that you do have a shorting plug in the SES (Voice Command) connector (blue 26 pin connector close to the Bluetooth module), that is if you have that connector. If your phone button in the steering wheel shows a "phone" picture, then you do not have the SES preparation. If the button shows a person "talking" the you do have the SES preparation.

Check again the installation instructions of the Bluetooth setup, I think that there is something missing at that end...

My Ride: 330i
I was motivated to retrofit Nav in my 2004 330i after reading your post. I have taken aprt most of teh car parts needed. but now I am stuck on these two points.

1) I am unable to pull out the climate control. How does it come out? What holds it in place?

2) Where does the retrofit cable enter the center console? I can route it along left bottom from the trunk, then cross to middle under the driver side, but then I do not know how would it enter the console area (towards monitor)? The original harness, after crossing under the driver seat, goes forward towards the gas pedal and then ramps up - but that area is not accessible as the carpet is covering it. Please help.
Any additional pictures would help as well.

Thanks.

I do not have the on board computer, average speed, outer temp etc.

"SA 550 (on-board computer). "

Will this still work? Will the stats just not show up on the screen?
