    Only for E6X production dates 9/05 or later?

    That rules out all '04 and '05 models then. What's the deal with that? Can it be used if Progman is updated or are there different head units in the '06 6 series?

    Also, what delineates the generation of iPods. Mine is a year old, not the new "flat panel" style that came out around Christmas so is it a 4th generation?

    Re: Only for E6X production dates 9/05 or later?

    I am tempted to say " wait and see" on the BMW production date. As we know there have been several cases (MP3 being one) where BMW claimed a specific date forward only to find that it would work well back (earlier production dates) then announced. I fully expect some guinea pigs will step forward (not me, I do not even own an iPod, prefering other brands) to prove or disprove the 09/05 production dates. I just got an update and I am told that when th esoftware fix is made to get the E65 working it should include a PROGMAN (CIP) update to make a E6x cars work all the way back to '04 models. More to this storey I am sure.


    As far as your iPod you'll need a real iPoder to respond, sorry. However, I think your's is new enough to be a 4th gen.

    Thanks for the tip.

    Hopefully history will repeat itself in this instance and it will retrofit the earlier 6ers. More patience is required its seems. I feel a little like the young Luke Skywalker!
