    just to add, you will also need some resistor and power connected in some way, which you can probably find on the yahoo group, to be able to get the unit to power up alone. I don't recall exactly what though.

    As per i knew from some diagrams that pin7 on the back of the BMW radio (business class E46 cd53 ) is the I/K Bus pin and it get activation code from cluster instrument unit or IKE unit but that is when the unit is connected back into the vehicle but when it is out then we need the activation code to be injected to the unit thru I Bus adapter ,any comments or additing to what i have mentioned on this subject are most welcomed, thank you in advance
