The developer charges for his IP. Well worth the money, I think you are all in for less than $70 Euro for the adapter with the DSP and BC license. (You want the BC license too so you can change the clock, trip settings, average fuel consumption and lots of small coding goodies).

3. Purchase iBus adapter and iBus app to enable operation of new H/U with factory DSP amp.

4. See what sound you get and work from there.

Good Luck!
and just to be clear when you say put the dsp amp back in, do i need to plug in all 3 connectors?

gettin the onboard monitor out was actually one of the things that stumped me for a sec too, but with some persistence i found the ONE YouTube video that shows you how to do it. ive attached a photo of what my original onboard monitor looks like. there are two screws hidden under the air vents, and a tiny flathead screw under one of the knobs that releases the bottom so it can come out.
