Yes - or we have instructions we can send to you now. Since you have NAV - the monitor is not touched.

On NAV-equipped radios, the tuner is in the trunk. the monitor is only a monitor. You'll need the trunk interface kit in order to equipped the DICE to your M3.

The cable bundle looks pretty bulky, that's why I'm asking. I haven't had the head unit out of this car yet (can you tell?) so I don't know how much space is back there.

Thanks in advance for your help - and look for an order from me soon. I think this is the answer to my dreams!
We have tutorials at the following links:

I have a dice unit a couple of years old and it has always suffered with the "little volume dip" at the beginning of each song. It seems this occurs when the text info is transmitted to the nav screen. I have tried the reboot/installation procedure multiple times and finally gave up. I flipped a couple of the dip switches on the side of the dice and this gives me music with no "little volume dip" but no text on the nav screen.

My question is : does this new silverline dice unit solve the "little volume dip"

Thanks

Default Problems - Nav - ipod - Silverline

Tom,

I just installed the Silverline unit I ordered from you. I have a 2005 M3 with Navigation. I cannot get the radio controls to control the ipod. If I set both the dip switches to ON, I can get the ipod to work, but not with switches in any other position. I disconnected the battery cables, etc., but no change. I am using a ipod classic 160g with the most recent update. I also reset the ipod by holding the menu and center button.

Please let me know what I am doing wrong.

Yes - this was actually covered in the prior version in a firmware update.

All 4 DIP switches should remain in the OFF position (UP). Perform the following steps exactly to reinitialize the system:

1. Disconnect iPod from cable
2. Remove battery cables, negative first
3. Touch battery cable terminals together (away from battery) for +5 seconds, a small spark is normal as this is stored power draining from the system.
4. Allow cables to remain disconnected for about 5-7 minutes
5. Reconnect battery cables onto battery, negative last.
6. Reboot iPod by pressing on MENU and CENTER buttons for +5 seconds and then reconnecting to the DICE cable after the reboot process is completed.

This should get you up and running, if not - contact me directly and we'll troubleshoot further.

i have an e46 M3 convertible with factory widescreen NAV. Is it possible to just install all this equipment (including the ipod) in the trunk and not have to route any wires through to the front of the car?

Absolutely - since all control is performed via the steering wheel/radio buttons, placement of the iPod is no longer an issue.

The DICE will use the CD Changer connections in the trunk, which is controlled by the radio and/or steering wheel. Since you are using factory wiring and we are emulating the factory CD Changer - these options are readily available.
