I am thinking about getting the Dice adapter that plugs to the CD connector to enable the 'smart' connection of an Ipod. I have a 99 LT and I cannot find this CD connector. Is it not supposed to be in the left side case somewhere? Was this CD changer an option that was available in only later model?
Thanks

I may be wrong, but I am under the impression that the harness was provided only if the changer was actually installed in factory.

My 2000 LT did not have that option and no harness. You may still be getting into the radio if you can find the harness (Beemer Boneyard?) - it becomes a part of the big combo plug in the back of the radio unit.

Doesn't matter if it has the connector or not. Dice doesn't make an adapter for the 99 LT. I've already contacted them.
That seems to be conflicting with post # 7 there:

Re: DICE Options
The DICE SilverLine Pro I-BMW-T on my '99 LT works like a champ and always has. iPod artist, playlists, song titles all displayed as advertised. I currently have my Garmin 660 connected through it for aural directions and MP3s too. MP3s don't show on the bike's display, but they are displayed on the Garmin unit.

Mine is on the right side compartment (towards the front) if you are looking at the bike from the back.

I think I was reading you have to order the 2000 lt dice adaptor for it.
Thanks but I dont see any connector either in the right or left side compartment. I will take the compartments out and see if it is behind. I was hoping it would have been prewired like most of all other options but it may not be :(

You might find this thread interesting:
http://www.bmwlt.com/forums/showthread.php?t=69468&highlight=Dice

I was looking in Germany for some parts and came across that device.

Our radio unit is a BM3 that is labeled a BM3 in Europe.

If you plan on going blue tooth head sets you might not need an adaptor?

I just ordered a 7' tablet with blue tooth, WiFi and GPS to use when I'm out riding. I had to debate between the unit I bought and one from China that had ro blank spots for IMs which would gibe it cell phone capability also--about $170.

I'll be using my Garmin GPS's blue tooth for voice directions.

Thanks that is great info and I like this GROM unit thing but in order to use it I still need to find out if I have a cd changer connector. I thought about going Blue Tooth with a system that would be completely independent from the factory unit but I do like the factory radio and com system. Sound is good, controls are convenient and I have 4 BMW headset that work with it. So this is why I am reluctant to move to something else.

Ooooops. Eu designation is BM4.

I'll see if I can find my K1200LT 2000 info and see if the basic model came with a CD changer. I seem to remember having to go one model up to get the trip computer and nit wanting to go one model higher because it came with chrome and heated seats?

Some where in this site is a list of all of the models/options from 99-last one.

You could always try install this universal kit:

http://diceelectronics.com/fmrds-usb-pro-avx

Looks like you disconnect the antenna to your radio, plug it into the module, and plug the module into the antenna input on your radio, and splice the power (12v constant, 12v switched, and ground) for the module. looks like a sweet deal. You will then have Ipod hookup and will be Sat radio ready if you want to go that route. Its like $110 on amazon.

Check out page 10 in the owners manual.
