    BlueBus: A fully integrated A2DP Bluetooth solution

    Hey guys,

    I'm just bringing back my thread from M3Forum. I'm sad that I lost all that history, but hey, what can you do?

    To bring everyone to speed: The BlueBus is an A2DP Bluetooth module that is fully integrated into the I-Bus network, allowing it to interface with the radio and draw a "UI" on the screen that you can interact with. The module also supports the factory microphone and telephone features (with an additional harness, or re-wiring on your end).

    The website is still https://www.bluebus.dev

    As of 2020-03-22, I'm shipping units out. You can expect to get a unit with either just a bottom care or no case at all if you selected "No" to "wait for a case" or you're not based in the U.S. If you purchased a TCU adapter cable, that also won't be in the box just yet.

    Once cases and adapters come in from manufacturer, you will get a second shipment with a whole new case and your adapter.

    It's safe to use the BlueBus as-is as long as you keep it in the anti-static bag / case.

    Here are some BlueBus-related videos:

        Might have to take the car out once it is installed.... to make my mind of this world, even if for a moment.

              Hello Ted, after the long emails have arrived, I'm not sure if everything fits with me?

              Can you tell me the status?

                Hey Ted,
                Received mine and gave it a try yesterday🙂. Seems to work ok, but have a question. When I cycle through the modes(cd53) it says CD1-01 or something like that initially, then it says bluetooth. I figure that's normal?

                      Yours is either in the mail or about to be when the postman comes by

                      Apologies, I don't know your information to look into your order status. Could you please shoot me an email at support@bluebus.dev?

                      Yes, this is normal. That's what the vehicle would display if it were equipped with a CD Changer. I write the UI to the CD53 by hijacking the telephone UI protocol, since it's the only way to effectively write to the radio. That's unfortunately as good as it gets :/

                      Yours should come soon, but with only half a case as explained in OP. Since I've always worked from home, and I have kids, I hardly drive the M3. As such, I took to using the M3/BlueBus as a boombox for the garage just to get some use out of my creation 🤣
                      P.S. I need heard back from you about the TCU adapter

                      Thanks! Yours should be one of the first fully cased units to go out.

                      To everyone: Make sure your phone volume is maxed/near max when using it with the BlueBus! I tuned the volume on the audio IC to work best with max input volume

                      I'm also anxiously awaiting feedback from everyone!

                      Thanks!
