iDrive Touch Controller Retrofit

Post by NickCardiff » Sun Sep 17, 2017 8:58 am

I've tried to connect this to my original wiring which was for a standard HU, no Nav and Bluetooth just for the calls. I've since retrofitted a Pro Nav HU and have full Bluetooth capabilities but the new iDrive controller doesn't work.

I've been informed it willl need coding for the handwriting controls and also an ECU for that but tbh, I'm not bothered about that aspect and just want all the buttons to work.

So for full use minus the handwriting touch pad, is it simply coding or do in need to add extra wires?
