IBUS interface is most commonly used for IBUS-APP – the on-board computer application for Android.

IBUS interface is an IBUS to USB interface, it doesn’t offer any other features, but allows an USB device to be able to read and transmit digital telegrams on a LIN-BUS based network.

Our IBUS interface uses one of the best integrated circuits for its USB communication (CP2102) and for IBUS telegrams transceiving (TH3122), which guarantees a this guarantees the highest level of communication quality and simple integration into your car.

No drivers are usually needed, since almost all modern operating systems come with an pre-installed driver for the USB integrated circuit CP2102.

IBUS interface is compatible with all of the I-BUS and K-BUS related software applications available on the market.

Our IBUS interface is compatible with:

  • IBUS-App for Android

  • Navcoder
  • Many others software applications and custom project regarding lin-bus, IBUS, KBUS communication.

How to connect IBUS interface to your car:

You have to splice 3 wires of IBUS interface’s connector to your car’s wiring harness: 12V (DIR), GND (ground), IBUS/KBUS.

RED wire of IBUS interface to 12V DIR source in your car (red, red/white, red/green wire in your car).

BROWN wire of IBUS interface to GND (brown, brown-white, brown-white wire in your car wiring harness).

WHITE wire of iBUS interface to IBUS (white-gray with yellow dots) or KBUS (white-red wire with yellow dots).

IBUS is always a white wire with gray stripe and yellow dots.

Some Bimmers (like E46 as an example) are not equipped with IBUS, they have KBUS only, which is white wire with red stripe and yellow dots, so on E46, please connect the yellow wire of our interface to KBUS.

  9. Viktor

    Good day I would like to purchase this device. Tell us what time of delivery to Russia?

  10. Modbmw

    Thanks for your interest!
    There are two shipping methods available:
    1. Registered mail: the shipping time to Russia now is around 2 weeks. Sometimes it’s faster, sometimes it’s slower.

    2. DHL express shipping. The package will be delivered within 2-4 working days, but this shipping method is times more expensive, than registered mail.

  11. Viktor

    Tell me on BMW X5 E 53,2005 of the year will work correctly?

  12. Modbmw

    Hello! Thanks for your interest! Yes, it will work on perfectly on E53 X5 2005.

  13. carmedia

    The app for this device is free?

  14. Modbmw

    This device can be used with many different apps. Most of them are not free.
    I’m pretty sure you are asking about IBUS-APP for Android, which is not free. The paid version costs around 20EUR.

  15. Tadas

    When you get this IBUS? Becouse now I can not buy.

  16. Modbmw

    Hello! We should release it again in our website within 5-6 working days, which means we should do that around 04 or 05th of December.

    Hello! We are on our winter vacation until 04th of January 2021, that’s why all our modules are “out of stock” now, we are unable to dispatch during the holidays. All our products will become available again on 04.Jan.2021.
    Thank you!

  19. Tasos

    Hello, I’m Tasos from Greece.
    Will this work with my XTrons head unit on my e53 2001?
    If so, how long will it take to be shipped here?

  20. Modbmw

    Thanks for your interest!
    If your Xtrons is Android 6.0 or newer, yes, it’s compatible.
    I guess the shipping to Greece would take no more than 5-8 working days, since we ship from Bulgaria.

  21. Flavio

    Boa noite, ao comprar o dispositivo ja vem com a licença, ou tenho de pagar a licença á parte?
    Funciona num x5 e53 de 2000/12 quanto tempo demora a entregar em Portugal ? Obrigado

  22. Modbmw

    Price is great. Using this with ibus-app, the licensed version. In a 2003 Z4 e85. Everything seems to work except folding/unfolding the mirrors en opening/closing the roof.
    Any idea why?

  33. Support

    Thanks for your comment! I don’t know unfortunately, I think it is better to contact IBUS-APP support about that or check IBUS-APP wiki page.
