You should connect your BT to OEM for calls. Before we had to disable it.

Any ideas what I should try guys.
Because V2 added new ways to select source output for calls. On the call screen there is an icon somewhere in the middle to select source. By default mine was set to phone so all audio was passed to phone instead. I selected bluetooth and it was solved.

This and connect your phone to BMW bluetooth.

Anyone else having clipping/static with the navigation voice? Music sounds fine. Happens with Google Maps and Waze, both on my previous Carlinkit fw and the custom 2.0.

For clarity,
I have version 2.1.0.7.gpe.b with MCU 20.6.2.0

Using USB drive with FAT32, unzipped folder from v2.0.B0.mod and placed ISPBOOOT.bin in root

Inserted USB and used pin 2863 to get into software upgrade menu.

When I select either system upgrade or MCU upgrade, the pop up says that it canít find the ISPBOOOT.bin file even though I can see it in my computer.

Does this mean I have the newer B units and itís not upgradable, OR do I need to update the version to the Bimmertech version v2.0.2.7t0.mmi.b first?

No it means that the MMI does not like your usb stick.

Use a different one.

They seem to be selling two versions, one with wide-screen support and one without.

I would ask them about that before placing your order to make certain that you receive the one with wide-screen support. That version can also be flashed with the custom versions in this thread. The custom versions fix the dpi.

As in, you formatted it to FAT32 but with GPT as the partition style? I'm not sure if these boxes are running a version of linux compatible with GPT

Has anyone figured out how to code out the annoying AUX error message that appears on the KOMBI when using steering wheel controls on CarPlay? It's super annoying and just want it removed.

I'm still having issues connecting to AA using V2 of the custom firmware. Tried doing it through Carplay devices, it could find my phone, so I used Bluetooth which does work, but it won't auto start AA. And if I pair to the OEM BT connection for phone calls, it seems to only connect to the MMI or the OEM, not both.

Could anyone post the Bimmertech instructions for connecting your device?
