Bordmonitor retrofit
 
hi!
I purchased a X5 3.0D without navigation, but with cd and DSP System.
My question:
Is it possible to buy a Bordmonitor (ebay e.g.)and use it as stand alone unit without navigation system? I want to install a XBOX to listen to MP3 and watch DVD etc., so i want to use the video/audio-in of the boardmonitor.

When I configure a 2006 X5 (www.bmw.de) i can order the Bordonitor without Nav, so i thought it might be possible with my X5 too?!

Its a 2002 Model with Business CD and DSP System.

Thanks a lot for your help and sorry for my bad english :-)

Regards,
Avery

Another thougth:
Can i use another Monitor HeadUnit (Pioneer/Alpine)with the DSP Audio System ?

Yes you can do the retrofit without the nav drive, but you will need to have the video module in that case. Both the nav drive and the video modules have the "brains" to control the system, and you will need at a minimum either one or the other to make this work.

So I buy a Bordmonitor and a TV-Tuner and it will work?
Do I have to visit my dealer for programming stuff etc.?

Avery

Avery, I really wish it were that simple. This a very complex retrofit, and it involves having to run new wiring harnesses in the vehicle. See this article to get an appreciation for what you would be getting yourself into. It's been done by several X5world members, so there is help here to get you through it, but it's probably one of the more difficult projects you will ever undertake.

ok i see.
I am not afraid of the work, but i know what OE BMW parts cost and i dont want to spend that much money in the cables...

so..what about my other thought?
can i use a alpine or pioneer headunit with monitor and run it with the OE DSP system?

if all that fails, i guess i will simply retrofit a AUX-IN and use a standalone TFT Monitor for the Xbox.

Regards,
Avery
