What, you mean you didn't have to do any wiring, just coding them made your AE's as DRL? Please clarify as that would be earth-shaking in the E53 world .

Android infotainment system with the iBus adapter and app. As easy as selecting halos as DRL. I have mine setup the same way. I also have triple blink turn signals and cornering lights programmed through the iBus app.

I'm in shock - I just did a triple take . And I actually have the iBus adapter and app . But my head unit is Dynavin N6. I'm trying very hard to get rid of it and get an Android system.

Thanks so much for clarifying .. double high Five from me .

By the way, do the halos turn on with the key in? Does the app provide more customization of the halos?

The halos don't come on the moment you turn on the key. The head unit needs to start and the iBus app needs to send the K-Bus messages to light the halos but they are on in less than 5 seconds from turning on the key.

Same with the automatic folding of the mirrors. They can fold in the moment you turn off the key but they will only fold out after the head unit can start and the iBus app can send the messages for them to open. A little too much delay for me so I left that feature off.

There is a lot the app and adapter can do, but you need the Android open source system to add the app. That's the one thing that drove me away from Dynavin was the closed source operating system based off the old now extinct Windows CE system.

Best advise from those on here would be looking into the Avin Avant-4 system. That's the one I have and in all my reading and research, nothing but praise for this unit from anyone that has installed one and they are priced right starting at around $300.

Just ordered the Avin Avant 4. What is the app you're using and how do you load it?

There is some of them for sale with integrated chip so should work for him, I have had same on my previous E53, works fine, no errors on the dash

May I ask how You coded AE to DRL? With NCS Expert? If it was NCS, then what lines needed to be changed in LCM?


Thanks!

The app is the iBus app from Rolf Resler. The Avin harness is already wired for the iBus adapter and is simply plugging it in and loading the app. Make sure you ordered the iBus adapter from Avin or you can get the adapter and/or app from the iBus app website. Avin also has the app and help files on their website.

Let us know how the install goes and I'm sure you will be happy.

Yes the OP found those and is considering going that route.
