Works great, but if you are looking for wireless Android Auto you might need to enable a few things in your phone and car. For one, make sure your car is set to connect to AUX so you hear it, and connect your phone to the car as WELL as the MMI box via Bluetooth so your default microphone can work. Finally, I had to enable dual-channel networking for my Android device, otherwise when it'd connect to the car's WiFi to stream the video data, it'd use signal and stop using LTE. By enabling dual-channel acceleration it automatically selects and uses both/the best connection, so that fixes my problem!
Connection sometimes requires me disconnecting and reconnecting my phone to get the option to start Android Auto up, but 75% of the time it pops up when I go to do it for the first try. Love the new version's UI, with really nice widescreen. The integration with the standard controls work really well, too!
I haven't received the upgrade yet. However, its on its way. Very excited. Starting off the Andream team will contact you and make sure that you are getting the right item. So far I have Zero complaints. Very good customer service. I will upgrade this review once I have installed the upgrade. Again very excited and great price.
Took me only 5 days to deliver to the UK and about an hour to install on my Audi A5 2009 Non MMI.
Overall the installation was relatively easy and the CarPlay works perfectly without any lag or latency.
Would definitely recommend specially since I did not have to pay any tax or delivery charges to DHL.
I have installed on 2016 BMW 528i and works amazing. Super easy to install.
I am so glad i installed this on my car. It is so worth it and works great. I was able to install it myself using the guide provided and a video on youtube which is easy to find. Support is great. Fast e-mail replys with a solution to all of my problems. I would highly recommend
Great, no complaints
Delight with this product. Really updates the look my 2012 Audi A7. Having an up to date navigation system.....just magic.
The installation process only took about 30 minutes with the right tools and once it was installed everything works perfectly. The wireless connection connects seamlessly right as you turn on the car and there is absolutely no lag which I was worried about. Shipment arrives in about 4 business days which is amazing and the airplay feature is quality as you can watch videos with zero lag. Great Product and Great way to add carplay to an older car.
It took a few hours to install in my e89 Z4 2011 with iDrive.
Microphone is very responsive (chose to install the included microphone instead of connecting to existing) and even though audio-in comes in from the center compartment aux plug, sound quality is great.
Hardest part of the install was the placement of the module below the globe compartment as the space is very limited there, I hope the module gets enough ventilation in there.
Wireless and wired Apple CarPlay work great, mirror screening is a bit lagging but video quality in the existing iDrive screen is very impressive.
Sound equalizer and display settings allow you to customize the sound/visual experience as desired.
Haven’t connected any front/rear camera, so I can’t comment on that.
Happy with my purchase, customer service via FaceBook messenger app has been very helpful during installation. Module comes already program for your car’s screen size.
I will recommend and will update post after a year of having the module installed.
The unit works as advertised, took a few hours to install but was worth it. I was able to connect Iphone thru wired and wireless (have yet to try android auto) and works flawlessly. The mic works with stock setup and caller was able to hear me clearly. The unit arrived pretty quick and packaged very nicely.
The only downside is the installation need to be corrected (the LVDS OUT connection port is labeled incorrectly on the connection diagram and the LVDS IN is also mislabeled, but easily to figure out which cable goes where - LVDS IN is for the OEM plug and LVDS OUT is for the andream harness).
Definitely would recommend for anyone who wants carplay on the Bmw x5.
The picture is very clear with parking lines, good price.
Very good product and good seller respond to your request very fast and very helpful, I recommend to buy from this seller.
Very pleased with the head unit as it seamlessly was installed and it integrated with the EOM just as described! The only thing missing is anti-glare, but will search for something to resolve this.. Excited to have successfully updated my 2013 BMW X5 antiquated head unit, with this fully loaded unit!
This product came in super fast being shipped from overseas, installation went good, it would have been great, once it was installed it took me a minute to figure out how to get to the carplay screen (Hold menu idrive button), but other than that, support was great when I had poorly removed the factory LVDS cable and bent the pins, they were eager to help me figure out what was wrong. No issues with the unit so far.
