BMW Android Screens

Please read below to fully understand what Android screens are, how they work, and how to get yours!

What are Android screens & what can they do?

If you have iDrive, Android units are a direct replacement for your existing iDrive screen. They're an all in one unit that run completely independently from your original iDrive, and add functions like;

- A separate touchscreen Android interface & device to use and download apps to
- Navigation like Google Maps or Waze
- Bluetooth streaming/bluetooth phone calls
- Reverse cameras
- Front facing dash cam
- Apple CarPlay or Android Auto
- Additional USB devices (hard drives, flash drives, DAB, etc)

These can also be added to cars without iDrive (but must have an AUX in) for the same functionality.

What happens to my current iDrive/radio?

Absolutely nothing - your original iDrive/radio is accessible at all times and remains as part of your car. You can easily switch between the two by either your iDrive controller or via an on screen button on the Android screen.

What's the difference between this & other screens?

As with everything, there are differing versions and variations.

Unfortunately, not everything is created equally, and cheaper Android screens often have lower hardware & software specifications, along with a lack of support.

Ultimately, all Android screens do the same job, just with a different user experience & responsiveness. We only stock the best Android screens available (using the same manufacturer as Avin), and we run them in an own personal vehicles.

If you'd like to see how they work, and have a play around with one, we'll happily show off ours!

How easy is it to install?

If you're handy with a screwdriver and trim tools, then you'll be fine! It takes us on average 2 hours to install the screen and reverse camera, including routing all wires and testing the unit.

How long to get these screens?

As we don't keep stock of these units, every order is shipped directly from our manufacturer in China. It usually takes 7-14 days from from payment to us receiving the screen.

Do you supply OS & MCU updates?

Since we work directly with the manufacturer, we can supply bug fixes, OS updates, and supply low level support and diagnostics. We can even enable specialist functions per your request!
