After being a little gutted that BMW wanted £800+ Vat to retrofit a satnav to my F20, I went online and found this.
OP, did you swap from a standard 6.5" system, and do you have any issues with the audio being muffled through this system?

cheers,

What model do you have 1 series 2 series etc. I was advised the 10.25 wouldn't fit the m240i, however it does so he cancelled my 8.8 screen. He's pretty good with replying, English isn't great but understandable. Looks a tidy little product, looking forward to getting it and fitting, like the hole layout of the software setup.

Screens for the F20/F22 are like trying to get S**t out of a rocking horse. They have them from that company, but not for another couple of weeks. I ended up getting the F30 screen instead

Quickly uploaded a short video to show you guys some of the features.
when accessing the normal idrive system what shows on the split screen view?

Love the look of spotify app! How does that connect via bluethooth to the phone?
It shows your original menu on one side and then I can't remember what's on the other ha!

I tethered my phones data to the screen so I just open the spotify app and have all my music

thats what i was afraid of, that the company may oversight the left/right hand difference and send screen that wouldn't fit, i may go for the f30 screen, ill see how long he reckons it will take to get the right hand screen in.

If you can hang fire for the F20 RHD screen then wait for that. If not go for the F30. That's what's in mine and it's just fine

Can someone please PM or post the contact details and your price for me? I'd like to get in on this and have seen them on Ali Express but also have the concern about a RHD model. I've tried emailing carlifemall to no avail.

The power of the CPU, and environmental testing (radiant heat not so bad in the UK) is a concern looking at the F30 forum thread. It would be great to keep this thread open to share suggestions of what apps people are using.

I've been emailing him for a few days and this is the last one i had back when I asked for the price. I am also talking to a different supplier andhe does exactly the same one for around the same price. It works out at approx £340 inc postage.

Bluetooth and DAB radio also the large 10.2 original screen. I want everything I have
at the moment in the new system that includes factory fitted sat nav, bluetooth and DAB radio.
====> ALL FUNCTIONS will still work, only one thing--when u press "navi" button, will swtich
to our navigations, and u can only use oem buy using idrive to choose

and to F21, the RHD frames will come in 2 weeks, so I suggest u wait for 2 weeks, then will
be ok
screen us400
shipping us50
paypal fees us10
camera if needed, us30 added, if oem has, no need to buy

any other question u have, share with us
