Stuck with wiring

Ok, i'm thinking about adding the combox now. Allreday ordered the parts.
My USB hub will be not needed anymore. Some first questions:

1. The Combox 26 Pin Connector. Only these Pins are needed?
1 Power T30 (Where to find? +12 V const from Radio Harness? Or is T30 found in fusebox for switched +12V?)
14 Ground
10 AUX GND
23 AUX NF L
24 AUX NF R
22 AUX BLNC
25 MIC+
12 MIC-
11 MIC BLNC

I find some more on pinout shematic drawings in this tread. That's a litte bit confusing to me at the moment because of different Wire Color Naming. Combox only get's +12 V Power T30 and no wakeup Signal?
I will rewire MIC and Aux to my own cable when fitting the CANBUS Filter Adapter. Still unsure where to find wire color of MIC + and MIC -. Graphic is switching Cable Color Yellow/Black and no Color for other MIC wire.

Someone able to add correct Cable Pins and Colors for MIC and Aux Wires? All should be found on Radio R1 or not?

Pin on Combobox Plug: 10 AUX GND : R1 Wire Color =
Pin on Combobox Plug: 23 AUX NF L : R1 Wire Color =
Pin on Combobox Plug: 24 AUX NF R : R1 Wire Color =
Pin on Combobox Plug: 22 AUX BLNC : R1 Wire Color =
Pin on Combobox Plug: 25 MIC+ : R1 Wire Color =
Pin on Combobox Plug: 12 MIC- : R1 Wire Color =
Pin on Combobox Plug: 11 MIC BLNC : R1 Wire Color =

Is MIC + on PIN 25 and MIC - on PIN 12 correct? Because it differs in this thread

I started this project 2 years ago and just decided to finish it Haha. Once I got the the new head unit in and stuff I just left it. I finally decided to finish the combox install to get bluetooth and everything working. From what I have left over from screenshots from this thread on the wiring I'll post with this message. Hope it helps. The circled part on this pic of the radio harness is where the mic wires are located. If you already knew all this I'm sorry. I probably should have went back and re read all the messages to see what was said.

On a side note, I'm finally finishing the install after 2 years but my question is once finished can you code the car to read tire pressure? Right now I have had everything installed except the combox. So everything worked except bluetooth streaming and when I go into the setting itll show me that tpms is active on the screen but I wasnt sure if these care were able to be coded to show actual tire pressure or just say that "tpms is active".

Ok, finally retrofitted and coded the Combox Media. Everything works fine exept Microphone for Handsfree.
So i'm stuck with Correct pinout for Handsfree Mic. Can anybody please confirm the correct pinout on Combox and Radio?
Aux, USB and Bluettoth is working fine. Shematics in this thread seems to be wrong. I'm stuck with that or totally stupid

Mic Wires are:
R2 Yellow/Black on PIN 7 <- to -> Combox PIN 12
R2 Green on PIN 12 <- to -> Combox PIN 25

Is that correct?

Ok, i finally made it. Mic + / - Wires was fault and i was able to find the right Pins in R2.

Everything is working now, both USB Ports, Bluetooth Handsfree and Music with Combox.
Only Software Update for Combox is not possible right now. perhaps i will find a way to fix that in the future.
Connection schematic picture in this thread was not correct for my car. Exactly MIC + / - was wrong. So i measured the correct wiring and have corrected the following schematic picture.


Thanks a lot to this thread and all your helpfull hints and tips.

Hi guys,

I have all parts (CIC and combox) fitted to my LCI 2011 car and working for the most part now (originally just had boost radio) - can anybody just confirm the coding procedure/steps should be as follows (I don't want to use an emulator)?

1. Change VO to include the following:
$6FP – Mini Visual Boost
$6NE – Bluetooth and USB Audio
$6NF – Smartphone Integration
$6NM – Mini Connected
$6UH – Traffic Information
$6VC – Control Combox
$6UM – Mini Navigation System

2. Change VIN in CIC/Combox to match car using tool32

3. Default code the CIC (SG-Coderen on the CIC ECU) using NCSExpert so it recognizes the correct features for the car - this may not be required if updating the VIN? will this make it automatically recognize that I have the HK sound system? Although I'm already getting sound from the speakers straight after the retrofit and VO coding so I assume the CIC is already recognising this?

4. Update CIC to latest software using the glovebox USB port

5. Patch CIC with new FSC Certs to match vehicle VIN.

5. Patch FSC codes using one of the generators

Thanks in advance.

Can someone here tell me how to get this work? It should Display torque and power. It seems this is only available in BMW M Models equiped with a torque sensor wich is not available in the R56.
