M. Coding, programming

Where to do the coding and/or installation: at service stations or by Dension installer partners (

  • Aston Martin, Audi and Volvo doesn’t require any coding.
  • Mercedes and Porsche require coding of the CD changer option, if the car never had a CD changer before.
  • Saab: if the car has or had no CD changer, then an original CD changer is required with a service computer to enable the CD changer option. The CD changer can be removed after programming.
  • BMW requires generally the IPOD option to be programmed. The IPOD option is needed (instead of the CD changer option), because only with this coding can the Gateway music menu be accessed (if the CD changer is coded only, then the Gateway 500 is recognised and working, but with no text display). For programming IPOD option we recommend Autologic, but if the BMW’s made year is late 2005 or is newer, then you can also choose the Dension GEN Enabler Tool (GEN2BME).
