Ted, that's great to hear it's not a large change to your daily life.
My wife and I are used to office life and have been working from home for about 2 weeks now. Sadly my industry is taking a shit knocking so my job has been hugely impacted based on oil prices and Covid-19 at same time. Such is life. We will definitely survive.

Glad to hear you are impressed with quality of case. It looks so sexy dude. looks very professional.
So happy to be apart of this so I can't thank you enough for taking the time to figure this all out, make one for yourself and then being kind enough to sell to strangers.
A Humanitarian event for us buyers.

How is the wire harness adapter manufacturing coming along?

Thanks for the updates.

Mike,

Hope you guys get adjusted and that things get better in your industry!

Thanks for the kind words! I'm happy that except for a few cases where the install was harder than it should be, everyone seems to be pleased with the BlueBus. My wife is happy to have some spare baby clothes money too

-Ted

Looking forward to everyone you've sold to in the E53 community to weigh in on their experience, the sound, etc. I'm ready to ditch the CD player.

Me too!

Bueller?

My thread over on "NAM3Forum" has some feedback from E46 guys.

https://nam3forum.com/forums/forum/m...tooth-solution

See page 2 and 3.

I did have a fellow with an E53 email me about a MID UI bug. I replied to him with a fix candidate firmware, but haven't heard back. The bug was just that the UI would reset every 5 seconds or so when you were trying to change settings, which I think I have fixed.

Ok all, so I see Ted has sent out a bunch of BlueBus units...any e53 owners installed one yet with a non-nav system? I'm excited to hear the reviews.

I'm a no NAV guy, drug my feet a bit getting Ted my plug type (because I'm lazy and didn't want to pull pins ) but as soon as mine gets here I've got nothing but time on my hands as I have officially fallen victim to Covid-19 "Furlough" into unemployment


Silver lining - I can install my BlueBus!

Well, I am one of those people you are looking for. After some struggles with me finding and installing the right connections on my car, and than getting it to do everything but have sound, it is up and running and working flawlessly!! I do love it and feel like my 15 yr old E53 is just like a current modern car! As far as not working initially, Ted was amazing and helped me diagnose that my MID was coded for using DSP and I had to buy a small cable to connect the BB to my DSP connection on my amp. Ted updated the software remotely for me and couldn't have been more accommodating. I havn't given him the feedback yet, but to use a non NAV/MID unit with the BB needs some tutorials. There is a guy named Ryan who seems to have partnered with Ted. He has an M5 page on youtube. He has done a video on how to make everything work on a E46 non nav radio. So, after some minor teething issues, I love the thing. Still waiting on my cable to connect for the phone. Ted says that is coming in the next couple of weeks. Given the current world situation, not sure if Ted will be making more of these, but if so, I would highly recommend getting one.

CapeX5, yes that's exactly what I was looking for in regards to a review.
I have watched Ryan and his E46 non-Nav and seen how it's worked around to get options done. It is a lot prettier/easier with a NAV unit but it's just now how the cookie crumbles for me.
Since I put in my order, I thought of buying a NAV screen and Mark IV module for use but I believe I'd still have to run more wires and I don't want to dick with it and deal with busted Nav-screen pixels so I will live with the MID stereo.

I wouldn't mess with the Nav unit just for the BB. Not worth the expense, hassle and potential issues. It works fine with the MID. Happy to help if you need some help getting it configured.

Thanks CapeX5. And you are right it's not worth it.
