I have a following problem. I bought an E87 (2005), that had a Business CD/radio installed. The car had not any devices using MOST at all (eg. no navigation etc.). I bought a Professional radio (manufactured 2008) from eBay and just replaced the old one - and surprisingly everything worked as a charm. So I was able to play MP3s, sound output was better, and I could access onboard "computer" by radio. Even steering wheel buttons were fuctioning ok.
Now, after this, I also bought a 6CD changer and tried to install that. What I did was that I simply attached a fiberoptics cable between the Professional radio and CD changer. That did not work at all, in terms that the radio did not regognize the changer. So I browsed through some forums and found out that I should drop my beemer to dealer, who "tells the car" that it has a CD changer.
This is what I did (CD-changer was not installed at that time), dealer uploaded new configuration (added prof. radio and CD changer option codes) but that did not help. Configuration was done by ODB connector, since I did not have MOST service connector in place.
I'm wondering that:
1. Does the CD-changer require some other MOST device to work?
2. Should the radio be also told that CD-changer exist?
I would appreciate any help on this, I'm not keen to take my car back to dealer again without knowing exactly what to do..
Hi There, thanks for that Info, I went to my local BMW dealer and was told that You could
replace the business radio with the MOST professional radio because none of the on board computer functions would operate on the radio (dealer said no fibre optics installed) my car is the same spec as yours, how easy is it to change the radio ?and where in the car did you fit your 6CD Changer?
any assistance appreciated
