Yes, Resler's USB I-Bus interface is recognised by the PC as a COM port.
NavCoder looks for all available COM ports from 1 to 16.
It works.

NavCoder doesn't care about RTS

I have seen that inside the navcoder there is also the bmw e90.
Can the language also be changed on the e90?
If he is able, as?

I am not sure, I have never tried.
I added all the vehicle types that were described in the software specs.
But I have never tried on the e90

Note that if you do try, you'll need a copy of the OS disc to reload the languages.

Question Loss of ETA

KiwiJochen,

What is the latest on the loss of ETA functionality on MK4 after using NavCoder? Is there a fix yet? I've seen a few post at bimmerboard.com but navigating threads at that site is a pain in the butt. Do you mind keeping us updated here?

Hi, The wierd thing is that I recoded 2 x Mk4 navs last weekend. Both of them worked perfectly, arrival time was not lost. But I recall I didn't tick 'Show arrival time'.

They were fitted to E39s with 4:3 displays

But to help people I have made a test version of NavCoder, where all 8 bits (0 to 7) can be set, to see if there are some undocumented settings that influence arrival time.

I cannot see anywhere where I can upload files on this forum, so I have it on the bimmerboard forum:
http://www.bimmerboard.com/members/k...vCoderTest.zip

Actually I just see that the users on bimmerboard found the solution - you do NOT set 'Show arrival time' on the E39 with Mk4. Then everything is fine.

I actually think that the 'Show Arrival Time' is maybe only for cars made up to 09/03 - ie: for those fitted with Mk1, Mk2 or Mk3 nav.
Maybe "PU 09/03" means "production until 09/03"

So for Mk4 nav do NOT select 'Show arrival time', then everything works

FYI,
Attached is a pinout diagram of the CD connector that shows which pins supply the +12V, Gnd, and Ibus connections. This is from the hacktheibus yahoo group.

KiwiJochen,

Maybe you should bundle this up in your zip file since I see some people have asked this question.

Nah, at 254KB, the PDF is too big :-)

But I'll re-write the physical connection part, and include wire colours, so that people can find the iBus easily.

Gotta love the Japanese E39, the iBus is on the nav connector which is immediatly visible and accessible just by opening the CD changer access panel.
