Hi guys. I wondered if anyone has mounted a tablet of any kind into their centre console and a standard single din head unit into the glove box or anywhere else for use in their E39. I'm deciding between the prohibitively expensive iPad mini, or the Nexus 7 (which i already have) for use with Waze, something that's already mounted to the centre and wouldn't need to be handled during operation while driving. A nice large screen often helps for people like me who are, for all intensive purposes pretty blind. The dimensions i have measured for where i see most appropriate for mounting is (understanding that all measurements are for when the device is in landscape orientation.) Length (L) = 11inches Height (H) = 4.5 inches. The iPad Mini (2/3/4 roughly the same) is: 8 inches (L) x 5.31 inches (H) iPad Air 2 is: 9.4 inches (L) x 6.67inches (H) Google Nexus 7 is: 7.87inches (L) x 4.49inches (H) Do people wire a permanent power connection or do they remove (preferred) and charge in doors overnight/when not in use? If they use a removable option, what cases/mounts are in use? i have a vent mount for the nexus somewhere, but it's not very aesthetically pleasing. Another issue is that with the aftermarket screen that is in my dash, the radio reception is abysmal. I'm pretty sure that the power to the rear aerials must have been bypassed or cut off. I didn't fit it, it was like that when i bought it, with an aux cable coming out of a tiny space in the cupholder area, and the USB cable in the dash, but the screen itself doesn't actually read any modern file formats so really irritating, and unuseable. I'll add photos of my Dash as soon as i get a chance to. Thanks for your opinions in advance. Deepan
Hi, I had my windscreen replaced about a year ago and ever since then I have had this rattle somewhere in the dashboard. Only becomes obvious when on not so smooth bits of the motorway, or more obvious. What can I do about this? Its driving me nuts. Jon
Hi i have owned my 520D M Sport LCI Auto for about 2/3 months now - first BMW so still a newbie with it. I noticed this morning when I put my key into the ignition (before I even pressed the Start button) I got a Yellow key with a line going through it pop up on my speedo dash screen , so I took the key out, and put it back in and it never came up again. Anyone know what it might have been or what that light resembles Its probs nothing, or maybe I put the key in with too much force or on a wrong angle - I dont know Your help would be very much appreciated Cheers
