  1. Hello there, I'm wondering if anyone has any advice and or wiring diagrams. I'd like to upgrade my Magneti Marelli head unit to an NBT professional system with wider screen and touchpad in my 2014 5 series (F11). I've managed to get the professional screen in no bother but have noticed that the wiring doesn't quite match up in the back of the new NBT head unit (see image below). Can any one tell me what the (from left to right) pink (assume that this is the screen cable), beige, green, yellow, white and orange female sockets are? I have a blue, dark green, beige and white cable remaining from the old magneto system but these don't fit which is probably a good thing as I'd be guessing what these cables connect to. I'm assuming that I'm going to need some new cables and will have to chase them through the back of my dashboard. I'd be keen to know if anyone has any guides or diagrams that can help me. Cheers, Sam

  3. Hi Guys, It`s gonna be a little bit long so please have patience. I own an F07, from 2009. Last year I had a combox retrofitted (which after a while and the help of the forum, we made it work). This year, though, I am not happy with it and I want more. The screen has quite a few scratches and it looks like the satnav is a bit sluggish (at least thats what I think). I have been tinkering with and Android unit from AVIN but it`s not doing anything of what it says and it`s sluggish as well. What I want is tho get waze on the screen of the sat nav or to get the satnav to work better and different resolution. As far as I know the screen mirroring means that the phone`s screen has to be on all the time and that`s not what I want. I have been looking all over the net and the best option is to retrofit an NBT. My question is: What do I need to retrofit NBT in my car ? I will tell you what I know and please correct me if I am wrong. I need an NBT (touch controller, unit and screen), an ZGW-02 and a few cables (going the OEM way as I have read that the emulator way is going to stop things work, buttons on the steering wheel and so on). What cables do I need ? Is it hard to install it in the car ? DO I have to pull some other wires ? I know it involves coding and I know someone who can do it for me. Thanks a lot for your time.
  4. Had my 2016 F11 535d for just over a week and have spent much time playing and learning. This is my firsdt ever BMW having converted from 7+ years driving Jag XF. But I am a frustrated driver !!! Being very technically minded (it is my job after all) the NBT system with the Prof Nav is really frustrating me so I am thowing myself at your metaphroical feet of experience. I have the BMW ConnectedDrive services will all facilities allegedly "booked"; which I take to me purchased. Can I find how to update my Nav Maps, for which I have free access under the Connected Drive services ?? Not a chance. Further, I decided to upgrade my NBT S/W which is at 003.003.001. Using the last 7 digits of the VIN, I donwload the recomended update to a clean FAT32 USB only for the Car to say "Update not a supported version" Whaaa ?? Finally, having lurked and read posts on others trying to perform the above, though none of what is posted has helped me with my specific cases, there is a common point made which is "using the USB in the Glove Compartment". I have scabbled around the car, I have seached the comparrtment with a tourch and I have even RTFM.. I can not find this mythical USB port. The only one I have is in the Centre Console. So please can anyone advise ? 1) Where does a ConnectDrive Service customer get the Nav updates 2) What is going on with the BMW provided S/W update that is or ist not for my car (despiote the VIN) 3) WTF is this mythical USB in or aroud the glove compartment ?? Many thanks for any contributing advice for a BMW Convert but aging techie.. C00lh4nd
