Well here's a new problem:
I installed my Ice-Link PLUS fine. Came with 2.07 installed on it, but after reading this thread and the info on the new BMW ID3 tag release 2B1, I thought I would install that update. Installed the update just as the instructions here
say. The only difference is after it reset itself, it never asked me to turn off then on the ignition.
So after that I check to make sure it works fine, I go under the setup menu to turn the text option on. I select it and wait to see text on my HU screen, but it never shows up after following these instructions.
So I go about my merry way to listening to music but all of a sudden I can't access the Ice-Link UI. As a matter of fact it just has the song playing (with all of the info on the iPod screen of the song), but when I press CD6 on the HU, it skips for a second like it is selecting the menu, but I can't see the menu (as it is supposed to be on the HU screen).
I tried updating automatically using this method
, however as soon as I plug in the iPod into the cable after playing the track, it goes to the first song in my library.
So here is what I believe is going on. I believe everything worked, installed and updated fine. SInce I have a July '04 2005 model, my HU does not have the compatability for text display. However, the Ice-Link is sending info to the HU for me to see the menu. Problem is, my HU won't display it. So... what should I do? UPDATE
So I used the Dension manual that lists all of the menus, played around with the HU, and basically found where I was in the setup menu blindly. Somehow I actually deselected the text display option blindly and got the Dension UI back up and running. END RESULT:
DO NOT select the text display option under the FW 2B1 Dension menu if
you have an 2005 MINI that was built before January 2005. You will experience the same problem I did and will kick yourself repeatadly.
