Tips

1, After replaced with android screen, all factory functions continue to work same as before.
(such as factory radio, bluetooth, steering wheel controls, idrive, parking sensors, factory vehicle display etc).

It is easy to switch the menu between the original menu and android menu, the iDrive working on original menu and android menu.

2. The installation is plug and play, no cutting the wires, no modifications, no need to program your car when installation.

3. If your car with factory navigation, you also need to install the GPS antenna for android screen.

(We are NOT recommend thesplitter for GPS antenna, it might burn down the android's GPS chipset inside)

4, For safe driving, we suggest to install a rear-view camera, when you back the car
(switch the gear to " R " - reverse mode), the android screen show the pictures on the back automatically.
