Carlife is available from the same date, I think also one hundred pounds cheaper.

That's true, Carlife is £339 Inc postage according to the last email I received from him. Apparently Milo will price match Carlife.

Also, roughly how long does it take to boot up when turning on the car?

Many thanks!
I've just had a reply to my question on auto dimming.

Nice to know it'll have auto dimming on it, think it's true that once you mod you'll always fine things you want to add. I told myself I was done with modding :lol:

Which exactly is the one you are ordering? I'm thinking of replacing my pro nav with one of these so which one would I need to go for? I thought the one in my link was the correct one for my car.

The one we're looking into will fit a 2series f22 , if you have a 1series I'm sure theres more options for you.

More detail please? What kit? How much? Where from? How was the install? Dees it replace the BMW HU? How does it play with iDrive?
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

Just the screen, you get cables that plug into the original head unit.

Hi dave, I didn't order the rear camera as I don't really have a use for it. I might add it down the line, I ordered my one still waiting on it to arrive. It should be getting posted on the 28th / 29th of this month. Looks a nice piece of kit and the bigger screen is a plus.

Email, he sent me the pay pal money request, I then paid it. I think it's only $30 USB for the camera.

Just contacted "Carlife" again for a price for screen unit, camera and postage, a hopefully will get reply.
Not sure why I am not getting a reply?

Also, replied to Milo of "CarNavi" email requesting, if possible a better price or a Carlife price match????

I think £440 ($595 USD) is not a very good deal (£463+ with camera)?

I found a few on Ali-express for under £400 inclusive but with past experiences shipping takes a good while and get hit with customs and VAT.

Thanks for the advice.
Mike
