I looked at the website, and the Crutchfield site as well. From the specs, it looks like what BMW is supplying at their dealerships. I can see a dock connector, two RCA input jacks (maybe not needed for an iPod), and a single plug for the radio interface. If that plug matches the CD changer input on the back of the Becker radio, then we should be all good.
I'd say pick one up, and we'll play with it this weekend. If it doesn't work, you can always return it to Crutchfield.
I may try to find one locally, The weekend is getting awefully close to have something shipped. I'm still waiting for the ipod,fuel and oil filters,throttle cables, and a few other things that are currently stuck in the shipping vacuum.
I understand that Crutchfield has a generous 30-day return policy. So the only issue is whether it would get here in time. If it did work well, at $80 cheaper than ice>Link, I think you'd make a lot of people happy.
When hooked up the ipod would charge, But the screen would read bmw okay to disconnect. The display on my 2000 LT read disc6 loading
If not corrected by tomorrow I am going to buy a icelink. Is the 120-bmw-T model the best for me if I am installing it in the right side bag instead of the cd changer?
I use a i pod, I connected to the wires from the cd changer. speaker wires to speaker wires, there only 3. I used a standard head phone jack. I made a cd which was blank, so when i want to use the i pod, I just select the blank cd in the changer, and it works. Find a happy medium with the volume, and I put a remote i pod control next to the cb. The standard remote i pod makes it all the way there under the plastic, clips on to the cb wiring and its been on for a year, water dont seem to affect it either.
The standard controls on the handle bar still work.
