E36 classic ipod connections

7 posts in this topic

I am after a device that will allow me to put the ipod in the boot of the E36 and connect via the 6CD changer which can allow use from the BMW head unit. I understand that the CD43 head unit may be required. 

 

I think the Connects 2 uses the radio aerial so that's out. 

 

Used to have an Intravee II system in the E39.

 

Presume it is down to the above or a DICE unit?

so found 2 but i think the Connects 2 one is E39 based as it has flat pins..i am guessing yoru E36 has round pins..if you were handy you could solder the E36 plug on tho ..pics below

Thanks for posting up the picks.

 

Yep mine has the round pin connector to the CD changer.

 

How does the BMW produced one work and does it connect in the boot? Not seen one before and can't find any online info about them.

 

Much appreciated
