Japan sat nav change to EUROPE

Recommended Posts

Hello
I just bought the X5 E53 4.8is 2006 from Japan and I have a problem with the DVD nav in the boot.
Everything else works (radio reprogrammed for OCE - I don't have EUROPE, TV set to PAL POLAND). I want to replace the navigation disc for Euro MK4 navigation to have a fully functional navigation system operating in EU / PL.
Please help me how to connect Euro MK4 for installation in BMW because there are different connectors (I have one 20-pin blue connector and I need two 18-pin connectors). Instructions on how to connect it are welcome.
Thank you in advance for your help.
Regards
mieta

Use these instructions for e39. I converted my e39 using these and it worked. E53 should be the same, as it is based on e39

I have two RGB + SYNC + GND cables in blue - I don't know which one to choose?
1st. pin 1,2,11,12,13
2nd. pinout 7,8,14,17,18
