Advice on installing Dension Gateway Lite BT in my 159

I have just ordered the Dension unit for my 2008 159 and am looking for some guidance on installation. First of all, if I understand correctly I have to disconnect the Blue&Me unit. I have read some reports that this causes the odometer to flash - is this true? Is there any way I can prevent this? Also I've just removed my Blaupunkt double DIN unit to have a look behind it and I can't see an obvious way to route the Dension box into the glove compartment - what's the best way to achieve this? Do I need to dismantle the glove box or something?

Best guide is here:- (Head Unit / stereo Upgrade Instructions)

Regards USB to glovebox: there is a panel just to the side of the existing USB in the glove box that is removeable. That gives a route for cables. Leave them free or do something more professional. Others have fed them to centre cosole or inside armrest. You can get surface mountings that the USB extension cables plug into the rear of.

Not sure of your unit but you may need a SWC adaptor if you want to keep steering wheel control for phone and radio volume etc.
