The function was built in to the video module. NavCoder simply enables it.



Recent work (% complete):
On-Board Monitor Emulator (80%)
TCU coding (60%)
Further LCM options (5%)
Bug fixes with Mk2 nav (0%)
Can I add some suggestions, even though I haven't used it yet (awaiting interface):
  • Code CD stacker
  • PDC testing of each sensor or look at which sensor is being triggered
  • Code TV module
  • Program the date format so 12hr clock can display the date in DD/MM/YYYY format.
  • Clear phones in bluetooth memory and display phones paired
  • Talk to MFSW, but I am not sure what you could do, other than test buttons?
Keep up the good work. When will you be branching out in to the other buses?

I like the idea of the clock as I like the 12h clock but hate having to use the USA date format, its a real pain.

Wish List

Interesting questions. Let's go through the wish list:

Code CD stacker
Nothing to code. NavCoder already does all that can be done.

PDC testing of each sensor or look at which sensor is being triggered
Possible. Need some PDC volunteers to supply me data. Will vary between active and passive PDC.

Code TV module
Already built in to NavCoder

Program the date format so 12hr clock can display the date in DD/MM/YYYY format.
Not possible, this function is not built in to the nav.
NavCoder can enable/disable functions, it cannot re-write the operating system!

Clear phones in bluetooth memory and display phones paired
Clear memory? Why? Don't know if this function exists
Paired phones? Maybe. Would need volunteers to send me Bluetooth data.

Talk to MFSW, but I am not sure what you could do, other than test buttons?
A MFL emulator would be possible, with display and emulation of buttons.
This would be quite easy. But won't be anything else than a graphical display of the data already displayed in NavCoder.

Keep up the good work. When will you be branching out in to the other buses?

Well, ibus=kbus...!!
I don't have any info on other busses, so I'll stay with what I know at the moment

Jochen,
Not sure if it is possible...

Enabling the clock button to toggle between full and split screen would be fantastic...

Yeah....like that idea. A quick means of switching between full & split.

When I changed my stacker to an MP3 one the dealer said they coded it

I could possibly help here, but would need guidance on what you need and how to get it.

Code TV module
Already built in to NavCoder
But does coding require you to enter the Vin details in? If so that is on your navigation menu but not TV. I thought the coding button would just enable the options you have ticked? But I am only guessing. Basically I am thinking from the point of view of changing the complete video module from another car, rather than modifying your existing one.

Program the date format so 12hr clock can display the date in DD/MM/YYYY format.
Not possible, this function is not built in to the nav.

Bugger

Clear phones in bluetooth memory and display phones paired
Clear memory? Why? Don't know if this function exists
Paired phones? Maybe. Would need volunteers to send me Bluetooth data.
Clearing paired up phones. You can do this now through the normal means, just thought it could be a good Navcoder function. Same offer applies on the bluetooth data as above.

Talk to MFSW, but I am not sure what you could do, other than test buttons?
A MFL emulator would be possible, with display and emulation of buttons.
This would be quite easy. But won't be anything else than a graphical display of the data already displayed in NavCoder.
Ok. Is there anything of value we could do with the Ibus talking to a MFSW?

Keep up the good work. When will you be branching out in to the other buses?

Well, ibus=kbus...!!
I don't have any info on other busses, so I'll stay with what I know at the moment
I would like to get in to the key programing, such as convenience opening etc

KJ
Keep coding!

Not possible without extra hardware in the car!

Just FYI, "...through the normal means" is like this (from ULF user´s guide, p. 16):

Deleting Devices

The paired BluetoothTM mobile phones can only be deleted as a single group from the ULF control module.


The pairing procedure must first be activated, and then the send/receive

button on the installed eject-box or the pairing button located at the rear of the
center console must again be depressed for an additional 10 seconds after the
“Bluetooth Pairing” message is displayed on the radio in order to clear the list of
paired devices from the control module and the message “paired devices deleted” is displayed.


Cheers, KamilFKH

Some notes to NBTBRV8's post:

Coding of MP3 changer: maybe the car simply needs the option code changed to indicate it now has the MP3 player fitted. As the dealer doesn't know what happens when the car is coded, they don't know what devices actually get programmed.

PDC: I've sent you a PM. Some data display would be possible here!

TV module: VIN is not stored in the TV module, AFAIK
Correct me if I am wrong.

Bluetooth clearing of phones: I cannot implement a function in the control unit that doesn't exist. If the control unit has no function to clear the phone memory via diagnostics, then I cannot do it!

MFL: well, I could emulate the Vol-Up, Vol-Down, Search-Up, Search-Down, and R/T button. But not cruise control buttons (because cruise control doesn't go over the ibus).
But how useful would the MFL emulator be?
I think the full monitor emulator is intriniscally more useful, and there you have the Volume and Search controls as well.

Convienience Opening: Again, this is a matter of capturing data and experimenting, for which I need volunteer...

There must be an electronic switch to clear the paired phones though, as you can do it via the method quoted in an earlier post. I guess you'd need to see what messages the Ibus puts out when you go to clear the phones.

Convenience opening stuff isn't on the ibus though is it? It would be nice.

I think the TV must be coded in a bit more depth than that, as when you move a module from one car to the next you'd have to tell the module it is in a different car, other than the options you've included in Navcoder. I know that when I fitted my ULF before I had it coded to the car it displayed on my phone as "BMW ULF" and then once I got it coded it came up as "BMW XXXXX" with the Xs being the last 5 digits of my vin.

But I have no experience with this stuff, so could be wrong!
