    Ted....You mean we do not need to get the 338? That's good news.

    Also, do we still need to preset this first prior to install or they come plug & play?

    Thanks.

    Not all of it is up to date, btw.
    Will this link or some form of instruction be included with the kit?

    And for the display on the OE screen, I assume song name? Ugh I'm getting excited just thinking about it. Thanks again for all your work. Excited to see where this goes

    I have 5 blinks coded on mine, but can adjust it to whatever number necessary for testing.

    Right now it can:

    * Play music

    * Respond to the steering wheel controls

    * Display on the OE screens

    * Emulate the TCU (so you can take/make calls when listening to the radio, and not BT)

    * 3/5 comfort blink

    Soon it will also be able to auto-fold your mirrors when you park, but that's obviously for vehicles equipped with folding mirrors only.

    There's more in the works, and I even discovered that I can do some pretty extensive coding through the IBus, so that will be fun :D

    Thanks!

    One suggestion on the E53 X5 LCI. If you can send the kbus message to fire the halo lights at key on, you will provide a feature that has only been accomplished with the Rolf Resler iBus adapter. It was the main reason I went with the Avin Avant-4 Android in that car. For years people with the LCI E53 have tried and tried to get those halos as DRL with no results and some resorting to rewiring them. You should be able to clean-up with the BlueBus with that feature over on the Xoutpost site.

    I am running the factory MKIV navigation in my E46 with CD changer and will definitely be ordering the BlueBus for the E46 and pulling the outdated CD changer when it is ready. I already have the comfort blink (5) programmed in my LCM, folding mirrors on key fob and I am very happy with my ULF TCU so the A2DP steaming feature would be all I need.

    Order placed. Been patiently waiting for this and I'm glad I did!

    Hey guys,

    Bit late to posting here, but Ryan @ E39Source did a review on the BlueBus he has had for 8 months

    Ted....Thank Ryan for the video. Is there a Beta video using the BMW Business Radio?

    Thanks.

    Not beyond the video on bluebus.dev :/. I'm certainly not as good a film maker as Ryan, so I know it's nowhere near as good :D
