Am I the only one with the scrolling problem? For example in song list. If I select a song with idrive controller, click, than scroll up, selection goes 1 click down. If I scroll down, selection goes 1 click up. After the 1 click it goes in the direction you are scrolling. Really annoying. Updated to latest firmware and mcu.

I ran the wiring through the floor as well, much easier than trying to pull down part of the headliner or fishing the wire through there.

Mine took a bit longer to install, because I had to install a backup camera and idrive controller as my X1 didn't come with those options. I definitely suggest getting the hardwired backup camera rather than the wireless if you are looking at this system.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi

My E84 also didn't come with idrive + controller. Im planing to install an android system. The idrive controller came with the android system looks very plastic so i decided to buy the original from bmw. However it doesn't come with wire which connects to the system.

The mechanic i showed advised me to get a wire. How did you connect the controller to the system. Does the wire already exist in your bmw or did you buy separately?

That is very impressive. Can you give some more details as I am also interested in doing something like this.

When you put reverse , the rear camera comes up and you put the car back in drive the front camera automatically comes up ?

I purchased an android 9.0 4GB ram / 32 GB memory from Navifly on AliExpress. Screen went dead on me within a week of ownership. Navifly refused to send me a new unit. They asked me to dis-assemble the screen and send the PC board back lol. Needless to say I went through a dispute with Ali express and they refunded me my money.

I re ordered the same unit from navifly because I believe I just got a dud. Too bad the seller didn't want to cooperate. I would of sent back the old unit no problem.

Avin / 4x4 shop all the same stuff. They buy from Navifly / Mekede in China and rebrand for a huge markup here.

If you are using apple car play, doesnt matter what android version you got. Your using your phones processor at that point.

I have galaxy 8+ android phone for now, need waze google maps for directions out of town,Android auto is on my phone now,


Ok is console gonna have to come out for install ? Hate the phone cradle in console waste of space, must go

it looks tricky

X1 has I controller allready in ultimate package and rear camera and factory HK Audio System, CIC with in dash nav monitor is all faded and scratched,

i would have bought this allready was looking at radio option list for ordering radio as to what i will need to complete this exact install

Buy pry tools and radio options needed for complete install: plus customer support,
Avin seems lacking here, 4x4 seems better choice wish they were closer they would do install

Finally got my new unit in after a huge delay with the corona virus and Chinese New Year.

All good again.

Pro Tip - connect your phones Blue tooth directly to your car, dont bother connecting it to your new android screen. The phone quality isnt as good as the stock system. For Apple Carplay users, i find this the best option.

Are you using the wireless Apple Carplay adapter? I have the wired set up and I'm interested to hear if it's worth the $ to upgrade.

Thanks!

I bought from Avin, but their tech support and response time is pretty shitty. They have been improving, as they now actually have a support site, but still pretty lackluster. If you have put in an aftermarket deck into a car before you should be able to handle this install, it isn't too hard.

Wired. Plug my phone in and don't touch it after. We have hefty distracted driving fines here in Canada now. This saves me

I bought one from hifimax and I get a static noise, since I have the middle speaker they told me to modify the harness but the middle speaker didnt have sound so I undid that and now I have static, does anyone had this problem before? Nothing is connected wrong since a professional installer did it, also no video from the backup camera, we tested 2 cameras
