Only the M3 has an oil temp sensor which is why it doesn't work on the dynavin.

Iím on day two now, and getting very frustrated. Tried to figle the unit into place, it wonít go all the way in. The gps elbow hits the backwall, and there is about 10-12mm before the unit is flush. And pls, Iím not making this up.

Iíve been watching videos and reading DIYís, and I canít see Iím doing anything wrong. Even if the gps elbow wasnít there it seems like the Fakra connector would get in the way for a flush mounting.

Any good advice is highly appreciated, (also for the missing illumination of the buttons/knobs).

Read number 3 on the FAQ on my website.

If your gps plug is interfering you would be the first in thousands of dynavin installs so I doubt it. You have something else getting in the way.

Thanks for the illumination fix. Iíll do it tomorrow.

I actually see the gps elbow touching the plastic wall, so itís not something "else". Do all of these units come with the same gps elbow?

Is that ďplastic wallĒ an air duct? Maybe I can use a heat gun and make a dent in it.

you got me! I dont have any idea how that can be. Is it possible to get a picture of what you are seeing because honestly, I understand what you are saying but ive seen A LOT of these installed and what you are describing doesnt make a whole lot of sense to me.....

well that is weird, I wonder if your entire dash is a little bit out of alignment with the airbox or something.....BUT....a little gap is fairly normal, in fact if you go back to the old threads you will see my "glare fix" involves doing that on purpose....bending the bracket or putting washers behind the top bracket to get a little clearance, it causes the unit to tilt down a bit and changes the angle of reflection so you dont get as much rear window reflection on the screen.

BUT I also wonder from looking at those pics if you dont have some wiring behind/beneath the unit. if there is anything behind or under the unit it WILL NOT go all the way back.

Hmm.. its a mystery to me. Iím short on at least 15mm to have a proper install (we do want some clearance in the back). The dash looks perfectly in-line with the rest of the interior. And Iím not keen on having a gap there.

Iím as sure as one can be that all wires where out of the way in the back, I tried many times.

Anyway, Iíll do another try tomorrow.

well, what I am wondering is if something is under the back of the unit like the ipod cord, usb cord, antenna etc... causing the back to sit up too high and come in contact with the slanted part of the airbox....from the looks of the pictures it seems it would be able to go further back if it were sitting a little lower in the back....

Or not....I dont know, in the thousands of installs that have been done Ive never seen that....

^ You have cable/wires or something that's preventing it from sliding in properly.

maybe.... ive got another idea as well.....the plug for the GPS is threaded all the way through the back of the unit and held into the back of the unit with a nut and washer.....I wonder if his GPS plug is just threaded in too far out a position? If so the fix would be simple.....Ill have to take a look tomorrow when I get to the shop to confirm what I am thinking....

I've had my v5 unit installed for about a year now, and albeit a fairly solid a/v accessory, I've grown to have a slight love/hate relationship with it given the few functional gripes that were never addressed by Dynavin; Namely iPod control. Specifically song resume and track control from the steering wheel while playing audio. I know you can back out to the directory level then scroll/select an alternate song via the steering controls while a song is playing, but I'm referring to previous/next functionality.

Jeff, per your initial review it appears that some of these issues have been addressed in the D99. However, after reading through this thread I didn't see any mention of iPod in-song track control or resume after a call has been placed/received. Is this still an issue in the D99?

Thanks for all the help!

songs resume, steering wheel buttons are track control. Hold the on screen arrow for fast forward/rewind.

The downside is that it doesn't like to back out of menus if you are going back multiple levels (not with my iPod at least), so if you want a different album You need to back out to the starting playlist/artist/album screen and select from there. But so far I'm the only person I have heard mention that so it must not bother anyone that much....It's not perfect but it's 100 times better than the way it used to be.

I had the same exact issue with mine. The GPS connection hits the wall in the back and wont allow a completely flush install.

OBC control - ibus

Hello all,

I just received my dvn-e46 d99 WinCe unit last night and have been preparing for the installation. After looking through the posts I noticed Jeff mentioned that in a few units a couple of wires for the OBC and steering control were reversed. Unfortunately I did not buy my unit from Jeff so I am not sure whether I have the correct wiring configuration. I've attached a picture of the harness connected to the ibus box and would really appreciate if someone could confirm whether its correct.

Thank you for your support.

I also had the fitment issue, the left rear corner hit the heater box and I could not get a satisfactory fit.
I used a heat gun to soften the heater box and gain a few millimeters and now have a proper fit.

Other surprises were the military time that can't be switched to 12 hour. Can only stream music in the phone screen

Apparently the blue and white have been incorrectly installed at manufacture and need to be reversed. Suggest that you unwrap and make sure that it hasn't already been done but hidden by the cable wrap. If it hasn't already been fixed, you need to cut the blue an white wires and reconnect them such that the blue connects with the white and the white connects with the blue. To ensure that you don't have future problems, I would suggest a solder join followed by shrink wrapping or using a posi-lock connector if you would rather go with simplicity.

2 reports of this out of the last batch....Im thinking maybe they got a little sloppy with the GPS plug and didnt thread it in far enough...since the clearance there is next to nothing a few mm could make a big difference. I was out of the office today so I didnt get a chance to look into it, Ill try to check on this tomorrow. If that is all that is causing this the fix is pretty simple....
