hey might be upgrading to an m3 soon w/ a nav, so I wanted to know if there was a way I could use my pioneer brain to use my dvd changer and tuner...can I just get Nav tv or what?

thanks

Most likely, no. The Nav head units in BMW are made by Alpine. I seriously doubt that a Pioneer brain would interface with a Alpine HU. At the least, the pinouts would be different and it would not be a simple plug and play swap.

Actually, these sites tell me that it might be possible.

At least those people and many other were able to connect (and get it to work) a pioneer RGB unit (which that brain is) to they're RGB NAVs.


:dunno:
so your saying I could do the same with the brain that they are doing with the tv tuner? B/c you said when we talked on aim it would be mono?

let me know, if I could just show these instructions/diagrams to a shop, I am hoping they can do it, I am not a DIY with this kind of stuff...simple **** only

It's quite possible that a qualified shop could do it.
I said the navtv module is mono.
