Installing the MP3 CD Changer in the 2003-2004 Range Rover



Once you have updated the navigation trunk radio you can easily add the BMW CD changer that plays MP3s and shows ID3 Audiotext while playing the MP3s.  If you have not upgraded the navigation computer to the MKIV and have not upgraded the navigation trunk radio, the CD changer will still work to play MP3s although will NOT show ID3 audiotext on display.  It will display just as your current CD displays.  Track 1 CD 1 etc.
