CCC - Car Communication Computer
The second generation of BMW's E-series multimedia devices. The structure of CCC's main menu is same for the end user throughout all hardware and software versions of the module. There are two different color schemes for the menu, older version is brown and newer is silver. In 2007 the latest version of CCC came out, the 8 button version added user configurable buttons under the CD drive slot in addition to the iDrive. Users could configure the additional buttons to save their preferred radio stations, menu shortcuts, etc.
CCC has been in service since 2003 on 1-series to 5-series and also on X-series since 2007. For Navigation functions DVD-ROM with map data was needed. Production of the CCC was ended in 2009.
The motherboard of CCC module has three revisions (or generations), we offer repair service to all of them.
CIC - Car Information Computer
Was introduced in 2008. It had newer menu, visuals, offered a lot more possibilities and had a newer and more accurate navigational support (100m with CCC vs. 25m with CIC). New Navigation was with 3D support, maps update was done via USB flashdrive and ran from the built in HDD. In addition, the CIC had the possibility to play different types of media via USB and DVD drives, also there was an added possibility to save and play music and video files straight from the built in HDD.
CIC was carried on from the E-series to the F-series. Although E and F-series menu structure looks the same a whole new hardware was implemented on the newer model. CIC was produced 2008-2013. BMWs.eu is only offering repair services to E-series CIC modules at the moment.
NBT / NBT EVO
Simpler units with less options used with E-series. Mostly without Navigation support or without map Navigation was provided (directional arrows and distance). Menu structure is not as diverse and can be recognized by use of a smaller main display. There is no additional slot for DVD and navigational data was read from a CD-ROM live. The second generation of M-ASK was introduced in 2007. Newer module has 8 programmable buttons. With F-series M-ASK was replaced with MOVE and ENTRY, "small screen" versions of NBT and CIC. Bmws.eu is only offering repair service for M-ASK modules at the moment.
