I stand corrected. On the days of the e46 you had to buy an "in motion" dongle to get the TV to work.

Even if it can be coded it's a stupid thing to do, it would be impossible not to be distracted even if it's "for the passengers".

I absolutely agree… it is distracting; but is is good to have choice.

I enabled it to try and experiment; and then set it back to default...

I agree with you guys on the DVD in motion being distracting - but I have another question.

Can you browse BMW online while driving? I mean the news, weather, google search, rss feed etc.

My car is not coded but I can do this while driving. Our X5 and my old E92 did not allow this.

Yes, but the screen displays a caveat which you have to acknowledge before accessing any info - just press and you're on-line. However, it's extremely slow and, as others have commented, just like I imagine TV in motion would be - somewhat distracting, hence the prior warning from BMW.

On the subject of coding - does anyone know if it's possible to enable the DVD/video whilst car is in motion function on the F10 please?

I got my unlocking software from bimmergur, they emailed it to me in 24 hours and 2 minutes later my DVD was unlocked - very simple DIY process

I don't think the F10 can be remotely coded. I haven't come across this yet.

If you are ever down south (in the Hamsphire region), give me a shout and I'll do it for you...

What apparatus does one need in order to be able to do this? Do you need a full autologic setup or something more affordable?

It requires 3 things:

1. A OBD II - Ethernet connector cable (about £10 to make)
2. E-Sys software - available on the forums (free)
3. Lots of reading (mainly forums posts and articles already written by members)
4. Patience and the will/ courage to try out the software

OK.. 4 things

Interesting. When you say OBD II - Ethernet cable do you mean USB or is it actually ethernet? If it is, there must be some sort of adapter necessary(?)

Do you have a link to the E-Sys software and / or cable details?

And do you mean research on this forum or is there a more specific "coding" forum somewhere?

Thanks.

That's great, thanks. It seems though that the software links have been removed "due to recent developments", whatever they are....

Trawl through the forums… you will find the links or someone who will be able to PM current working links to you. To be honest, all links only last a few days as they get taken down 'due to recent developments'… but search/ ask and you will find.

This is what I meant in my earlier post…

I managed to download E-Sys 3.18.4 win PIN (46.3 PSDZdata) a while back and bought the components to make up a cable. I only got round to trying it a week ago and all went smoothly.

I got the Auto-high beam on automatically, I got the digital speed in the info display and I tried the DVD in motion code - just to see if it worked - which it did.

The only thing that did not work was the power/torque meters when in sport mode. Not sure why they would not enable for me. May be because my SW version is too old on a Oct10 build car.

There is a fair amount of manual labour involved in getting the whole thing installed but once done, the package is easy to use.

Yes its about 16Gb alright but takes over 30Gb of space to install since you have to duplicate one of the large folders - which is strange.

If you want to send me a SAE with a 16Gb USB stick/sd card/etc, I will put the files on it and send it back to you - no probs.

Thanks. I've got a 32Gb stick around somewhere. I could send it to you complete with the European 2013 maps. If I can find it among all my junk.....

can't find the link to hand but if you google it, you'll find one already built. I keep meaning to get one and I also need to get a new laptop as my netbook only has a 15gb drive which is not going to work...
I've done a quick google for OBDII RJ45 cable and found some
That what I'd as I don't have tools or the skills to make one up!
