android auto

Post by Ian »

Hi all, can android auto be coded into the m140i pro nave id6 screen please.

Im trying to find a way to get google maps and a few other apps to work with the standard system, or would a android screen be the best rout?

thanks

It can't be coded unfortunately. You can get an MMI box which is around £200 which ive give you all the features and still keep your pro nav in place or someone has mentioned about "AndroidAutoIdrive" app on github which will give you maps, spotify etc for free.

I wouldn't devalue your car by taking pro nav our for a cheap android screen.

thank you for that, the MMI box looks like a good way to go.

have you used one before?, would google maps work like it does on my phone, with tomtom speed camera app overlayed on the top?

thanks

I've not used one sorry bud, but i'm sure it works exactly like your phone google maps. It briefly shows google maps in this video as an example:

thank you

I have the larger screen now, the android side of things, can you do the same on both?

thanks

I'd only put the android screen if you had the standard business nav. Otherwise you'll be paying to de-value the car, also the android screens wont last nowhere near as long as the genuine, will be a pain for any warranty claims etc.
