    retrofit of dvd nav system e46 with no aircon help!

    Ok people my question is that all the dvd nav retrofits i have seen seem to specify that the car must have aircon,now my car is a april 2001 build, 136bhp, m47, 320d pre facelift with no aircon so can i still retrofit the nav or what??I have retrofitted the obc no problem,made up my own wiring loom and bought the ambient temp sensor and works great.Why does there seem to be no guides for retrofitting dvd nav for e46s with no aircon.Can anyone please give me advice on this.My car has an ipod/iphone dock and mobile phone handsfree kit fitted,not by me.The reason i mentioned the obc retrofit is because i dont know if its relevent or not to a dvd nav install.

    Hi lee,yea its just a bog standard 320d,no aircon,no front fogs,no obc,no multifunction steering wheel,it has sunroof,so im after retrofitting obc and fogs and will fit multi airbag as soon as one turns up at the right price and going to retrofit the bmw monitor too.The centre console has just the three knobs for heater control with the two buttons,one button for recirculation and the other for rear window defog.My car is actually registered as 2002 and its still a prefacelift model.

    Is it a coupe? They didn't get a facelift till 2003 I think.

    Has it not got the climate control unit under the radio?

    Can you post a pic?

    Sorry lee unable to post pics and i forgot to say its a saloon,no climate control just the three twisty knobs,first knob is blower speed,second is hot/cold,third is vent position.Im after picking up a bmw monitor part number(65528384598)4:3 screen,only paid €40.00 for it and for the life of me cant understand why all the retrofit guides state for cars with SA 534 or something like that.I really dont care about nav or tv(maybe add at a later date) but was hoping to get the radio through the monitor but the monitor has only two 12 pin connectors.one blue and one white,So i know im going to need the loom and radio reciever that goes in the boot.Is there any adapter that will use the existing radio connector(with round pins) and incorporate the ariel into it so i can have radio working in the monitor?
