    Where is BMW e46 m3 coupe mk2's Trimble located?

    I'm hoping someone will help me and tell me where the Trimble unit that connects to the cd player for the mk2 nav and antenna is located exactly? I'd appreciate any help. I already know where the gps antenna is. Thank you!

    If you open the MK2 unit with the slot facing towards you, the Trimble unit is located to the right side of the unit. It's in a nickel plated unit of about 30 x 80 x 10 mm and the SMB antenna connector is protruding the rear side.

    Trimble module was installed into MK3 and MK4 units, but not in MK1 and MK2. Look somwhere near your TV module - in most cases trimble is behind it.

    Thank you everyone for your help, I am still searching for it, in fact I'm wondering if it's missing. Gazo, when you say "open the mk2 unit with slot facing toward you". Are you referring to the actual cd player unit? Also, if that's not what you meant, are you sealing about the trunk, front of the car behind stereo widescreen....?

    Slons, I'm not trying to come across as a know-it-all but it's actually the opposite. The mk1 and mk2 BMW nav systems are the only ones that had an external Trimble unit.

    Either way, thank you for all of your help and more info- even better would be pics! Lol

    I meant the actual cd-unit/computer which is largely similar to the MS5000

    That is precisely what Slons has stated!

    Ok thanks Gazo. I have pulled the cd unit out and there is nothing attached to it or a place to connect the gps antenna to it either. I'm pretty savy with cars and electronics, but this is baffling me! It's probably right in front of my eyes to!

    Oh and that's honestly crazy we said the same exact thing!

    I still haven't been able to find the trimble unit anywhere. I am starting to think the previous owner swapped nav systems before selling but I have no idea. If anyone has specific instructions , or even netter-pictures, of where the Trimble unit is located in the BMW m3 e46 coupe I would be VERY appreciative!
