New I-pod adapter for BMW 17 pin, LT radio

Found this while poking around for K1200LT parts on the German eBay site:
http://www.aliexpress.com/store/prod...463803047.html

There are quite a few Blue tooth head sets on that site; some claim unlinited linking with other identical units with what looks like line of site distances. Prices are cheap compared to Sena etc.

Re: New I-pod adapter for BMW 17 pin, LT radio

I tried this one and it was a fail. Maybe it was just me, but still a no go.

Several problems.

1 the connector was too big to fit back under the radio controller in the space allotted, a modification to pull the radio forward might have worked.
2. The device did not work. I had it all wired up after removing the tupperware and could not get any "sound" from the system so even if I could make it fit in the space allotted it was a no go.

I did get mine off ebay and was able to get a refund.

If anyone gets it to work let me know, I would be willing to try again.

PS the plastic connector was made of "cheaper" plastic and did not seem to be very sturdy.

Re: New I-pod adapter for BMW 17 pin, LT radio

I fitted a DICE iPod Integration kit a few years ago, and it works superbly. I did not have a CD multi-changer, nor the wiring for it. This just fitted straight onto the back of the head unit (I had to modify one of the connectors slightly so it would fit).

Full handlebar control of albums, playlisyts, tracks & artist, with display on MFD between the clocks.

I know DICE have been taken over, but it could be worth contacting them, to see if they have a modern equivalent of it.

Re: New I-pod adapter for BMW 17 pin, LT radio

I came across this adapter at Ebay; it's apparently made in China, but isn't everthing:

Has anybody tried this one. One neat thing I noticed is they have an optional switch that allows you to continue to use your CD player.

Re: New I-pod adapter for BMW 17 pin, LT radio

you might get more info about those units on a BMW auto site? run a scan on those model cars? I'm waiting to see if the pins on my 2000 with cassette, are round or flat, I don't remember.

That is the one that I tried.

Problem # 1 was that the connector was TOO big to fit in the stingray casing

Problem # 2 was that the one I tried did not work.

Maybe it was me but after a few days of futzing around with it I could not get mine to function. Also the above connector was not very sturdy and seemed to not seat all the way to the back of the radio.

I would LOVE to get one of these working but I am not holding my breath.
