Fitted this bad boy in my F20 yesterday :D

Post by GazJM » Sat Sep 16, 2017 11:15 am

After being a little gutted that BMW wanted £800+ Vat to retrofit a satnav to my F20, I went online and found this.

Love it! Finally have Waze as my proper satnav and Spotify for my music :D :D

looks very good, and seeing as I am stuck with my 116d for a while thanks to negative equity I am looking to do some upgrades like getting sat nav!

I got it from a company china, cost roughly £340ish which included shipping with DHL express and took three days to arrive.
The install was really easy, plug and play with some instructions provided. You can still access your cars idrive screen and the controller works perfect with it. The screen is also touch aswel!

This is where I got it from

Nice one, does it mirror android phone screens and can you use the iDrive controller as well as the touch screen to navigate around the android apps.?

Yeah you can mirror your android phone to it. I some how managed to do the same with my iPhone but didn't really pay attention as to how.

Idrive controller works fine on it too

Looks like a nice peice of kit, how's the build quality and functionality of it. How easy is it to fit if you want to replace another head unit, I might replace my business navigation screen if this fits the m240i without any issues, any idea if it would fit at all. Also is the screen HD 1080p

The build quality is really good, looks proper smart and it functions really well. I haven't gone over the top with apps or anything. Just Waze and Spotify.

I'm not sure if it would fit yours? But you could contact them on the link above and ask them. They're more than willing to help

Cheers, I've contacted them hopefully it works as I don't really like the business navigation screen. This looks much better and the price is good.

Do you get Dab with this and does everything work as it would via the idrive? I've got pro nav in my 2015 with enhanced Bluetooth so it's a must important that everything works as standard.

Could you do a video of it all working if you get the chance.

Thanks
