All orders and shipped out today :-)

Bimmernav also has a few of the pre-made jumper wires if you have BMW Sirius. Just ask for one when ordering.

Is this also limited to 11 characters?
I've not used the MID display, but I beleive that it is currently limited to 11 characters on the left, with the OBC or time display over on the right of the MID.

You can put it in enhanced search mode and browse through your iPod using the right rotary button on the BMW NAV system similar to your iPod control wheel. You can browse and select from Playlist (yes the Playlist names show up!!), Artist, Album, Songs! You can do random play on songs or I believe albums.
Is it safe to say that this install is just as easy, if not easier than, the DICE installation (especially if leaving the ipod in the trunk)? I would be doing the install w/ the 420i (iPod adapter).

Also, do you think I should put the adapter under the trunk lid or on the side (by the Nav Disk and BT module)? Any screwing/drilling involved?

Thanks.

Yes, that's right, like installing the DICE without routing the wires to the front.

Most people put it by the Nav Computer/CDC in the boot, Velcro is secure enough to hold the Intravee and KCA-420i, but you can screw them in if you really want.
