Explanation
Before connecting the iPod to the NEO
interface, turn the hold switch ON to
enable locked mode. For operation in
locked mode, please see user manual.
Before connecting the iPod to the NEO
interface, turn the hold switch OFF to
enable display mode. For operation in
display mode, please see below.
NOTE: Changing the hold switch on iPod to ON/OFF must be done prior to connecting the dock cable.
iPod nano 6th generation will always be in locked mode since it does not have a lock switch.
10
Installation
Note: Installation should only be performed by a qualified professional. Beware of sharp edges to avoid injury and
exercise caution when removing trims as they may break. The module should be placed at an accessible location,
such as the glove box, consoles, under the front seats or in some cases in the trunk to allow iPod/SIRIUS/AUX/ cable
to be connected. Module must be removed and connected to a computer to apply firmware upgrade (please see pg
29 for detail).
1 Disconnect both battery terminals. These cables must be disconnected during installation to ensure proper
initialization of the NEO module when it is connected.
2 Open trunk and access trunk area.
3 CD changer cable will be on left hand side on most models (in trunk).
Some models are different:
X3 CD Changer cable is located underneath carpeting under the center console.
Z4 CD Changer interface is located between seats, underneath subwoofer.
Mini Cooper/Cooper S CD Changer interface is located on right hand side of vehicle (trunk area).
4 Remove carpet and side cover to gain access to CD Changer harness. If CD Changer is present, it
will need to be disconnected and/or removed.
11
ATTENTION! There are two 3-pin connectors presented in the vehicle. During installation,
make sure that the 3-pin connector from the vehicle does not have a brown wire in the
middle. The 3-pin connector of the phone pre-wiring looks identical to the 3-pin connector of
the CD changer pre-wiring! Do not use the 3-pin connector that has a brown wire in the
middle, but locate the one that has the brown wire on the side! Incorrect connection will
result in permanent damage to the unit and will not be covered by warranty!
5 Locate both the 3-pin & 6-pin connectors in the trunk area. If the CD Changer is present, disconnect the cables
and set aside. If no CD Changer is present, the cables will be bundled and tucked away in the rear trunk area.
Some vehicles will have the CD Changer wiring in a protective sheath which may make it
more difficult to locate. Cars sold outside the USA may not be pre-wired for trunk install,
and require additional harness to be connected.
6 Connect both 3-pin and 6-pin cables to the NEO BMW interface cable.

7 Fold down rear seats (if applicable) and route the extension cable to the rear seat bottom cushion.
12
8 Remove bottom seat cushion by lifting up and route wiring underneath.
9 Route the remainder of the interface cable in the best possible location (ie. under the door sill or under the
drivers seat.
10 Connect the vehicle specific connector and the iPod dock cable to the NEO module.

DSP integration
If your vehicle has Digital Signal Processing (DSP), the purchase of a NEO DSP kit is necessary.
To see if your vehicle has DSP look for a bare metal coax cable and a 3-pin connector. If you don't find a coax cable
and find a 6-pin connector along with a 3-pin connector, your vehicle doesn't need this DSP kit. DSP is only present
in selected 5, X5, Z4 and X3 vehicles.

Attention installer! Please read the following!
NEO Car Audio Inc. strongly recommends that the unit be installed in an easily accessible place! DO NOT PLACE IT BEHIND THE
RADIO!
Whether the unit is professionally or self installed, put the module where you, the end user can get to it easily in the future. (Have the
installer show you where the box is.)
Hiding the NEO module behind the radio will make it difficult to:
-Add possible future upgrades, changing software, adding new features, improving operation;
-Access the AUX input on the module to attach any audio device;
-Access the DIP switches located on the module;
-Remove the unit in case of failure.
MAKE SURE THAT THE MODULE IS IN AN ACCESSIBLE PLACE!
