There was a guy who did a great BMW 540 install. Search for that. That should give you some ideas
hey guys, tried searching but havent gotten a straight answer.
i just recently purchased a 2002 BMW x5
i want to install a carputer but was wondering if the stock HU has
an AUX input? i dont have a cd changer. only a single disk in dash.
i check the aux input adapter at crutchfield? but they said the factory HU should not have DSP. but unffortunatly i do have DSP. so what should i use?
i dont want to use an fm modulator. help please.....
My adapters are compatible with that car. As of sound you will need to use S/PDIF from you car pc and feed it directly to DSP.
sorry to sound dumb but i was looking at the BMW 540 install and he was saying that he used the IBUS? and he did some VB? im not really that good with computers. i just want my carpc for simple use. MP3s and videos mostly. so i just want to know how to connect my pc sound to my stock BMW HU.
JBOR: what adapter? and what are you talking about when you say S/PDIF then connect to DSP?
ignorant i know... but please help. thanks
Car2PC adapter. It allows to use stock stereo to control the PC and get sound from it. I never tried to feed digital sound into DSP in BMW, but I suspect that if you have PC with S/PDIF out, you might be able to connect it directly to your DSP.
With a comment like that, I don't suggest you put a computer in your car.Originally Posted by ericdee
