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??
