E39 B10 MID / Satnav wiring

Post by Sj84 » Wed Sep 04, 2019 7:52 am

Hi all,

I have a Dynavin N6 installed but I want to restore the high OBC functions (mainly dash clock) by reconnecting a MID either in the glovebox or the boot but it’s not been straight forward...

At some point my B10 had a mark IV sat nav (badly) retrofitted. I’ve removed most of the units (they got pretty noisy over bumps) but the loom remains in place. I found what looks like the MID 10 pin connector in the dash but when connected it only displays phone functions, it’s just blank when trying the clock or “BC” button. I had a little luck when I connected the old sat Nav display and nav unit back in, this gave me a clock but the nav wouldn’t turn on so I had no way of changing the time.

Any ideas??

Have the N6 fitted to my x5 which has DSP. Similar to e39 OE I had to plug in the HU, nav and for unknown reasons the multi disc cd. Built a frame or remodelled the original and put it all in the boot. Everything works time, mpg, well all OBC functions. Downside if you want to reset it has to be done from boot. Point is it can be done
