    Business CD setup - need some help

    how do we change the country code in the Business CD ?
    I bought one from europe and it is in the european mode (shows every number not only odd numbers) and the scan function does not work.

    I was able to access the setup menu by pressing and holding the TP button but I can't figure out which setup menu is for the country code.

    Re: Business CD setup - need some help

    Found this text. Also check the link at the bottom...




    To access the service menu in the BMW Business CD:
    - turn the radio off, then on again
    - press and hold M for 10 seconds
    - display will show SN#nnnnnnnn
    - press +/- to access settings
    - press 1-6 to change settings

    Settings I know of are:
    SN - serial number
    SV - software version
    signal strength level
    GAL - speed sensitive loudness
    DSP - n/a
    TP-V - traffic program volume (non-USA feature)
    display check
    tuner area selection
    AF - alternative frequency (non-USA feature)

    Cycle power to exit service mode.

    Some aren't modifiable - hope that helps.

    Thanks but the Business RDS and CD43 are different

    but will try and test these. The Business RDS needs the TP button to be held not the M and setup is different a bit.
    maybe thats only european setup ?

    Basically same

    They all work basically same. Hold down one button to get into service mode. Maybe other than "m".

    Then +/- or < > buttons to move/up down menu, number buttons select choice or "1" button is used to toggle on/off binary options.

    I think if you play around with your radio using this general info you'll figure out how to configure it.

    I'll try :-) but the +/- does nothing on mine

    I need to push 1-2 to go forward and backwords and 3-4 to select or deselect. I just don't see anything remotely looking like a country selection. bunch of other stuff though. Will give it a try or I can just live with it, no big deal, I listen to pre-set channels anyway and never even knew AM was still around. it must have been 10 years when the last time I turned on the AM radio.

    Re: I'll try :-) but the +/- does nothing on mine

    I just recently purchased a BMW CD43 radio.The instructions were as follows:
    (1)Turn key to "on" position
    (2) Turn Radio on then off then on again
    (3) Hold "m" down for 10 seconds until "SN#********is displayed
    (4)Press the + key 7 times to scroll to tuner area
    (5)Area Europe should show in display
    (6) press preset key "1" to select USA
    (7)Turn radio off
    Give it a try ...hopefully this will work for your radio.

    Good Luck
