2. Installation
Switch off ignition and disconnect the vehicle’s battery! If according to factory rules
disconnecting the battery has to be avoided, it is usually sufficient to put the vehicle in
sleep-mode. In case the sleep-mode does not show success, disconnect the battery with a
resistor lead.
Complete and correct function of the interface is possible only when CAN and MOST®
(tuner) connections are made properly. On vehicles without TV-icon, it will be coded
automatically after installation.
Place of installation is at the rear of the navigation screen and at the rear of the navigation
computer.

USB and optional IR-remote control set
Connect USB-connector of USB-installation socket USBC-EXT to USB-socket of USBbox USBC-M536 and install the USBC-EXT socket in a well accessible location, e.g. the
glove-box. Make sure there is enough space to load USB-media.
Installation socket for the connection of USB-media.
The USB-IRSET consists of the external C3C-SENSOR IR-sensor and the USBC-RC IRremote control and can be used to control the usbLOGiC’s internal USB functions
additionally to the control through the navigations buttons. Connect the C3C-SENSOR
to the female black/red/blue 3pin AMP connector of harness C3C-AVIR and locate the
sensor in an accessible place.
2.4.
Connecting peripheral devices
It is possible to connect an after-market AV-source, after-market rear-view camera and rearseat-entertainment to the usbLOGiC. Also factory nightvision, factory DVD-changer or
factory rear-view camera must be connected to the usbLOGiC.

Before final installation of the peripheral devices, we recommend to test-run the usbLOGiC
functions to detect incompatibility of vehicle, navigation, factory accessories or peripheral
devices as soon as possible.
Version 31.01.2013
USB-E65
2.4.1. AV-source
The usbLOGiC has the possibility to connect and remotely control by navigation buttons a
pre-programmed device. The device list in the device control table shows the preprogrammed remote channels and the related IR-remote cables STA-xxx which must be
ordered separately for the control of the device.
Using the respective STA-xxx IR-control cable, interconnect the yellow female 3pin
AMP connector of harness C3C-AVIR and the IR-port of the AV-source.
Using an RCA-cable, interconnect the female RCA-port AV1 of the USB-box
USBC-M536 with the AV-output of the AV-source.
The pink ACC-output wire (+12V max 1A) of harness C2C-BMW02 can be connected
to the ACC-input wires of the connected device to switch it on. It carries +12V when
the navigation computer is running.
2.4.2. Installing AV-source’s IR-sensor additionally
Page
9
Additionally to the control via OEM navigation, it is possible to install the original IR-sensor
of a connected device. By using the respective Y-adapter (e.g. STA-Y35MM or STA-RJ12) for
the IR-Port of the connected device, the controls of navigation AND device’s IR-sensor can be
connected and used simultaneously. Installation of the IR-sensor is recommended as the
controls via navigation are limited, and not all functions may be covered.
Version 31.01.2013
USB-E65
2.4.3. After-market rear-view camera
Connect the video RCA of the after-market rear-view camera to the female RCA
connector R-CAM IN of USB-box USBC-M536.
The green wire of harness C2C-BMW02 can be used as +12V power (max 1A) supply
for the rear-view camera.
Note: Automatic switching to the camera-input when reverse gear is engaged works
only in usbLOGiC mode.

With an existing factory PDC the visual PDC display must be deactivated occasionally or
permanently by iDrive while operating in the vehicle settings for camera picture. If needed
the PDC display can be switched on by PDC button.
Version 31.01.2013
USB-E65
2.4.4. After-market rear-seat-entertainment
Using RCA-cables, connect the rear-seat-entertainment to the female RCA-connector
VIDEO OUT of USB-box USBC-M536.
Note: As the output is a full output, not shared with the video signal for the
navigation system, splitting the video with an RCA Y-cable might give a good enough
picture for two rear-seat-entertainment monitors. If not, or if connecting more than
two monitors, use a video splitter.
2.4.5. Factory nightvision, factory DVD-changer, factory rear-view camera
On vehicles with factory nightvision, factory DVD-changer or factory rear-view camera, pin
out the video-signal and video-signal ground from the green 18pin AMP connector of the
vehicles harness (rear of navigation computer) and connect them by male RCA-connector to
the R-CAM IN of USB-box.
