Great, thxvm, will have a look at w/e when I have time to take it to pieces !!
I had a really good question today.
Currently, it all works off the Television option, so you cant view the map view, but still get instruction for directions.
However, there is an easy way around this. An audio out could be fitted to the tv tuner, and with an auxiliary input on the bm54, the sound from the tv tuner can be heard via the aux mode. This means you can freely use the navigation, and also control the bass and treble.
Food for thought, if anyone is interested
Also, there is a trick to play your radio, cd, intravee or aux modes, whilst you have a tv channel on. I tend to leave a channel on, and have the auxiliary mode on, which I control the music from my phone with.
Woohoo, i have money in my paypal account, i will pull the tuner out tonight and stick it in the post either tonight or tomorrow
Its in the post. Can't wait to get it back. Speak to you soon
Best regards james
Can you give me a cutters price for a stage 2 conversion, an extra ariel as mine is a 2002 plate and the BM54 upgrade with Bluetooth.
Had this upgrade done last week having read all the positive comments on this thread.
Great service from Baris......removed and upgraded both the tuner and BM54 on the spot and refitted it the same day.
Has made a noticeable difference to the sound quality, (ironically more noticeable with the roof down?) and the firmware update to get dynamic routing for sat nag is a useful addition.
My TV reception was reasonable with the original BMW bumper aerial but decided to have the aftermarket ones fitted which are even better.
Anyone considering this mod rest assured, Baris knows his stuff!
Hi Baris, call me daft as I might have missed it. But is there an upgrade from stage 1 to stage 2 price?
Yes, it's £99.99
Cool, i'll be round later in the week.
Excellent upgrades you had done last week
My reception in my area is sometimes too good. Although your bumper aerials worked well, it just shows they arent good enough, when you go elsewhere.
The aerials I sent you are sleek, small and doesnt stick out.
With the roof down, you tend to have the music louder, than with the roof down, or even stationary. So now it can handle it better, and you can enjoy your tunes on the motorway
Very nice, how much is shiping to Norway ? would love stage 2, is it same signals in UK as norway ? mpeg4 i belive and dab/dab+ ?
I have done a few for Norway. It works fine, but you should know, I think you have channels that you need to pay for? Or am I thinking of a different country?
Hey guys! Congrats Barris for your build! You did a smart thing there!
You advertise stereo sound. Do I need to send you my radio module for that? Or do you sell a modified cable?
And how do I switch to stereo? Do I need to switch to AUX audio source to have stereo sound?
The stereo sound can only be done on the eom analogue tuners, when upgraded to digital.
So what you say is that you don't need to upgrade also the BM54 radio module?
Baris is this something you can do on the spot? i have the original V1 version...
