Intravee II
This amazing device can enable full Apple iPod integration (PLEASE NOTE) for AUDIO when used with the Alpine KCA-420i iPod interface (also available from us - see further down this page). So much better than an FM transmitter! According to many of our customers, much better than the Dice or Dension alternatives.... We didn't need to say that....because our customers did...!

Perfect integration with the car's controls, including steering wheel controls where fitted.

Compatible with all iPods and iPhones that have a Dock Connector (or you can use a Dock Connector to Lightning Adapter - not supplied). Please note that since Apple changed to 5 volt charging with the more recent iPods and iPhones they will NOT be charged during use but a small adapter can be purchased to enable this - available separately - see further down the page.

Displays CD/MP3 text (ID3 tags, file/folder names, CD-TEXT etc) on most standard BMW display bars and Navigation screens, including BMW 3 series E46 radio.

Allows direct connection of:

> Apple iPod if used with an Alpine KCA-420i (NOT included - available separately - see further down the page).
> Alpine MP3 CD changer (NOT included)
> Allows connection of multiple - up to three - Alpine AiNET devices when used with the Intravee Switch (NOT included - available separately - see further down the page)

PLEASE NOTE you will NOT be able to use your original BMW CD changer.

PLEASE ALSO NOTE: If your car is fitted with the DSP Hi-Fi option please check your CD Changer to ensure it has the 3 pin and 6 pin connections - if it has a coaxial type connector you will also need a separate analogue to digital converter. (See the DICE DSP Adapter further down the page.)

Features include:

> Fast music search feature for iPod and Alpine MP3 CD changer if fitted.
> Sub-folder navigation on MP3 disks.
> Quick response time to button presses!
> Free lifetime firmware updates as and when they become available - upgradable via a standard PC/laptop and serial cable (or we can do this for a small fee) allowing new vehicle types and software features to be added as they are developed.
> Very low standby power consumption (typically less than 1mA) so unlike some other adapters will not cause any flat batteries or cold starting problems.
> Dimensions 95 x 65 x 30 mm. (3.75 x 2.5 x 1.0 inches approx).

Specifications and features subject to change without notice.

For the following vehicles:
3 Series E46
5 Series E39
7 Series E38

Z4 E85
Z4 E89 (PLEASE NOTE only up to approximately June 2009 Build Date - Ensure that your CD Changer does NOT have the Fibre Optic MOST connection)
Mini (BMW Mini) R50, R52 & R53
Range Rover Mk III (2002-2004 - NOT Touch Screen Nav)

which have the factory fitted CD Changer OR are PRE-WIRED for a factory CD changer.

PLEASE NOTE this item is NOT compatible with the very early CD changers which had one round connector - it will only work with the CD changers that have 2 connectors (one 3 pin and one 6 pin) so if in doubt please check your CD changer before purchasing.
RANGE ROVER OWNERS ALSO PLEASE NOTE: The 2004 Range Rover sometimes has a 10 pin connector for the CD Changer and NOT the BMW style 3 pin and 6 pin connectors. The 10 pin connector would need to be converted in some way to achieve connection with the Intravee II. If in doubt it is worth checking which connector(s) the CD Changer in your Range Rover has.
