    iPhone Bluetooth Phone voice delay

    Cheers @G WhizzIt's the phone calls which are problematic. When on a call, it's like a long distance call with a 2-3 seconds delay so you end up speaking over each others voices. Out of interest, which phone do you use?

    iPhone Bluetooth Phone voice delay

    I have an iPhone 7 plus and experience a 2-3 second sound delay when using the phone over bluetooth via CarPlay. Basically the individuals speak over each other like a long distance call overseas! I'm wondering if anybody else experiences this delay at all?

    Which Dashcam do you use?

    If you use DAB radio a lot, might be worth doing some research as to the best routing for the cable going to the rear. I've read reports about DAB interference (apparently the blackvue cabling doesn't have the best shielding). Ferrite beads might help as well.

    Great stuff. Order going in and Christmas shopping now completed!

    That's good to hear. Is it the Conecta OBD cable that you're using?

    Thanks @Hurly_Dog Was there a reason why you couldn't use the power magic device in your 5er?

    What's everyone using and what would you recommend? I've been looking at the Blackvue DR750s as I like the simplicity of its design and discrete fitting/siting on the screen but have read mixed reviews. Thanks in advance.
  8. Hi all. I've posted a few times about my BMW OEM reversing camera installation and I'm pleased to say it's nearly complete. I need to make the final connection to the rear right fuse box (see attached wiring diagram). The instructions tell me to connect branch A3 using a miniature connector to the green cable from pin 11 on plug Z2*3B (which I can't locate). The wiring diagram (also attached), states that A3 should be connected to fuse F204. I was therefore thinking of using a connector like the one shown to make the connection. Am I on the right track? Any comment appreciated. Cheers.

    Thank you for pointing this out and the post is now edited. Do you know the answer though?

    Exterior Window Trim Removal

    I've had a look on newtis.info but I can't find any instructions as to how to remove the exterior window trim on my G31. This is to wrap and change it from brushed aluminium to high gloss. Just wanting to make sure it's a really neat job. Any tips or instructions very much appreciated.

    Reverse Camera DIY Retrofit

    Yeah i saw those kits on eBay and not sure what the additional module is. It’s definitely not required for the G30/G31 installation (see attached instructions). Any ideas? fitting instructions.pdf

    Reverse Camera DIY Retrofit

    Will do. Same kit on this video posted by a different retailer https://www.in-car-install.co.uk/reversing-cameras/bmw-5-series-g30-g31-g38-reverse-reversing-camera-kit-2017-onwards.html#product_tabs_attribute

    Reverse Camera DIY Retrofit

    I suspect the flicker is due to recorded screen refresh. The final image of the car only is because the vehicle has been taken out of reverse so the PDC still displays as this will be needed if say moving forwards.

    Reverse Camera DIY Retrofit

    The manufacturers of the kit are well regarded as they produce kits for most major manufacturers (and there's plenty of youtube videos of installations to look at). Also local dealerships representing different manufacturers refer customers to the firm I'm using to install the kit and he's been around for years which gives me further confidence. Finally - price!
