Re: SeaSucker Monkey Bar Roof Rack / Sunroof...

SeaSucker should be shipping the rack out today. I'll mainly be running a 3-bike setup on it (currently 2 Yakima High Roads and a Boa in the center), but I may the the opportunity to run my smaller Thule Atlantis 1200 cargo box up there; though it's more likely to see 2x4s or pipe strapped to it.

Re: Tapping Into Fuse Panel Question

Looks to me like the "power box' they're referring to is just the back side of the fuse block. They're reverse images of each other. I'm supposing BMW went this route to keep a cleaner "OE" look to a dash cam installation, without a wire hanging off of a fuse tap. But for the garage installation, yo...

Re: Stargard "Service" Required

I've been digging around and trying to come up with more Stargard info. I found this telling statement on their web page: "Introducing the first customer-financed auto-inventory system. Here’s how it works: Stargard helps locate and protect your inventory while it’s on the lot. The most efficient wa...

Re: Stargard "Service" Required

...the device should have some sort of GPS antenna 'eye', so look around your windshield... This sounds crazy (at least it did to me), but I updated the factory Nav hardware on another of my cars (Ford Flex) and per the installation instructions, the vehicle's rooftop GPS antenna is unplugged and r...

Re: Stargard "Service" Required

I don't know where, but the most illogical place is over the driver side footwell where wires and fuses as easily accessible, as well as something resembling an ignition switch (in most cars, anyway). Not to mention this area is readily accessible, and nobody is going to waste time tearing open a da...

Re: Stargard "Service" Required

Is this a BMW dealership? Did you finance the car through them? I've heard the tales of these dealership-installed GPS devices which they advertise to consumers as anti-theft devices, but have a dual-use for dealerships to track and immobilize the vehicle for easy retrieval in the event they need to...

Re: Navigation: Eco Pro routes, and BMW's paramaters...

Good info! Thanks. My 13 Audi allroad features a lovely Google Earth overlay on the nav, and the current generation of that series has a fantastic full-dash Google Earth layout "underneath" the guage cluster display. I was mortified when I heard the news that Audi was going to transition away from t...

Re: Navigation: Eco Pro routes, and BMW's paramaters...

Isn't the operation of the map server outsourced by BMW? When I was suggesting back-end machine learning, I'm not thinking of Waze-like personal route preferences, but more of an overall collection of driving data to continually refine a database of what any particular route segment's driving effici...

Navigation: Eco Pro routes, and BMW's paramaters...

I'm fairly impressed with the navigation in my i3. I have the "Real Time Traffic" system up and running. I've been running BMW nav side-by-side with Google or Waze and the ETAs are relatively consistent between the systems, even if the routes vary. So I throwing that out there to establish that BMW'...
