The CIC type is slightly more difficult to install than the NBT type. Connecting the main connector to the back of the head unit is the same as the NBT, but additionally, the IDrive CAN BUS IN/OUT, MIC IN/OUT at the top of the driver’s seat, and the AUX input inside the armrest console must also be connected.
In order not to deviate from the original design, we created an additional USB slot by removing the interior material inside the armrest console. Connect the iPhone Lightning cable here and connect it to your iphone.
In the case of iPhone, there is no difference in recognition rate even if the USB cable is extended. However, for Android phones, if the USB cable is extended, the recognition rate is lowered, causing a problem. So it is impossible to install the USB slot in this way.
And IN/OUT Connect with original MIC on the ceiling above the driver’s seat. If using the original MIC, the voice recognition rate is superior to that of an external MIC, and has the advantage of not being displayed externally.
I tested Carplay, and it works fine.
(Recognition rate check through original MIC, sound output check through AUX, control check through iDrived)
