Not on the DICE, but SHUFFLE can be activated on the iPod since the Clickwheel is fully unlocked.

Its a feature that may be added in on a later date, but can be turned on from the iPod settings at this time.

The DICE has an AUX-in connection, but it is primarily intended for the iPod. What year is your 3-series?

You can either choose our AUX device or the DICE kit - I would recommend purchasing an iPod dedicated for your BMW and the DICE kit for the most features.

Here is the AUX kit we offer, this will allow an AUX-in in place of your CD Changer:

Check the 2amp fuse in the DICE harness as well as fuses 7 & 41 in your glovebox to make sure they are not blown.

help!!

All fuses are intact. Does it matter that I have 05 325Ci, premium sound package with DSP. Also i didnt get the 6CD Changer for the trunk. Also all the switches on the box are set to the off position. Also I plugged in the wire to the ipod jack not the aux jack. Everything is wired as your directions stated. What did I do wrong. My bus. cd has the mode button which I pressed twice already? What should i do?

Yes, fuses are to be replaced when the install is completed.
