USB prompt should be removed in version 9. Also we removed track navigation on right dial.
Try that and let me know.

For me USB prompt appears when I start the car and sometimes when I switch to CD changer mode.

Any updates on core issues I listed at the end of the first page? If there is going to be a fix, I'll keep the adapter. Otherwise, I'll return it. Please let us know before our warranty expires. Thanks.

Now the adapter does not work at all. I cannot switch to CD changer mode. I only get AUX mode, it plays USB voice and stays on AUX. I tried disconnecting it from car and that did not help.

I requested an RMA to return it. Glad this happened before the warranty ran out.

I have been using the same 2gb usb drive. It has worked fine, why would stop working suddenly? I can see in computer fine. Either hardware or just software really buggy.

There are some issues with modern flash drives which incorporate U3 Smart. These are very weird drives and we're looking into it.
If your device got stuck in AUX mode you should switch to FM->CD within 2 seconds. It will force device into USB mode.
Version 9 should not have dial working. Anyhow try build 10:

tryed ver.10

Good news:
1) right dial is not changing tracks
2) usb promt removed

bad news:
1) adapter still changing to cd screen all the time
2) sometimes its changing to radio mode, but adapter still working (ie it changing screen to cd changer) - from what i know this happens if adapter sending wrong messages to radio unit (IBUS) or not sending them in time... atm i can fix this if turn off\on music (using left dial).
3) buttons on a wheel working strange-can't do fast rewind because if i press and hold next or prev button on a wheel it will keep rewinding even if i not pressing buttons anymore(ie its stuck in fast rewind mode).(it working good if i press same buttons on head unit btw).


p.s. dunno how..but today 1 time it was not changing to cd screen...navi map was on all the time...didn't able to do this again after power off\on tho...

p.p.s. it would be nice if you can improve fast rewind mode like so:

if user press and hold next\prev button for 1-4 sec its rewind to 5 sec every "jump", if hold for 4-10 sec- its rewind for 10-15 sec every "jump" etc... because its annoying to hold next\prev button for like 1 min if i want to rewind it to 4-6 min song time.

I updated to ver 10. Still changes to radio mode.

Now a much bigger issue. After upgrading to ver 10. My car alarm keeps going off whenever the USB adapter is connected. I have to disable the alarm. The red light on upper side of nav screen is on (there are 3 little lights to top right corner of nav unit). Whenever I have USB adapter plugged that light is on. Which is another reason to know something is wrong.

I searched most m3 forums and found out that few people who put after market modules get this issue. Mostly a hardware issue in modules used that send bad signals to i-bus. Many recommended remove usb module before it damages my car.

I gave up on this. I hope it did not damage anything in my car. I got the RMA number and returning it. I wish if you guys did more hardware and software testing instead of testing it on people's cars. This could get you in trouble in courts if it damages someone's car.

I'll go get a DICE or something else. Something that won't keep triggering the alarm and who knows what it did to car electronics.

I took my car to dealer to read alarm fault codes. It turns out the USB adapter was causing issues with power. It was setting the terminal R trigger which is responsible for power. The tech guy said it's either the unit is not turning off or taking too long to turn off and recommended removing it like I read on forums.

Not sure if this is a hardware or software issue but thought to share it with you guys.
