Car Multimedia is a very good accessory for your BMW F30, or F31 (Break) like mine. The installation is quite easy if you know how to tinker a little, you just have to go gently with a spatula to pick up the plastics from the dashboard without breaking the staples. Once installed I am very satisfied because my BMW takes a real young shot thanks to this compatible screen CarPlay and Android Auto new models 2022. As you can see in the photos it is a car radio really nice and cool. Finally a great thank you to the seller who is responsive and really listening and who answers you quickly if you have questions.
Nice CarPlay head unit, I love to do DIY, installed it on my own after watching few YouTube videos. Andream team was very supportive on providing required information. It’s been over a week now, working fine so far. Sometimes it will few mins to connect to CarPlay wirelessly, easiest thing is go to WiFi settings and connect manually to the CarPlay WiFi, sometimes it connects automatically without any effort. Overall I am happy with my purchase. I would recommend for friends who wants a touchscreen CarPlay display.
Great product . Quickly deliverd and the install support was great!
Pictures follow! Thanks
I was struggling to find a head unit which supports wireless android auto and found this. This device works really nice and fulfills all my expectations! See the image for Android auto. Installation is very easy and should take max. 1 hour. Only tricky part was to fit all the extra cables because of lacking space in the car, but eventually it will fit.
Made my car lot better… quality of the sound have never been this good and easy to install and use!
Installazione intuitiva e rapida. Tutto si integra perfettamente con gli innesti e le forme del cruscotto.
Sistema rapido. Fondamentale attivare l'aux dal sistema OEM altrimenti non funziona l'audio.
Altra cosa importante è dissociare lo smartphone dal sistema OEM e usarlo solo in abbinata al Carplay.
Punto a sfavore, il microfono per le telefonate è molto basso.
Per l'installazione della retrocamera, il sistema si attiva in automatico innestando la R ed appaiono le linee dinamiche.
Assistenza presente e risponde ad ogni quesito.
Hatte zuvor das kleine Display mit Bluetooth und Aux. Das neue Display ist sehr leicht zu verbauen und sieht optisch sehr schick aus. Wichtig ist der Aux Anschluss in der Mittelkonsole, da dort das Kabel vom Display per AUX Kabel angeschlossen werden muss, da man sonst keinen Ton hat. Apple CarPlay und Android Auto funktioniert richtig gut. Das Display kann mit dem Idrive Knüppel in der mitte als auch per Touch sehr gut benutzt werden. Die Musik kann auch vom Lenkrad mit dem Rollknüppel bedient werden. Ich habe für den Einbau ca. 20 Minuten benötigt und bin absoluter Anfänger und habe mit Autos und Elektronik nix am Hut. Kleine Sachen die stören sind z.B. das im Rückwärtsgang die Musik aus geht, das man mit der zurück Taste beim Idrive Knüppel bei Apple CarPlay und Android Auto immer zurück ins das Andream Menü zurück kommt, das man keine SD und Sim Karte einbauen kann, das man in den Einstellungen bei mir nur zwischen zwei Startlogos auswählen kann, wo kein BMW Startlogo bei ist. Für den Preis von 309€ ist es sehr gut. Vergleichbare Angebote waren bei ca. 600€ und mehr.
Ottimo prodotto arrivato in Italia abbastanza in fretta, lo consiglio, un prodotto plug and play
The customer service was awesome they really know what they’re talking about. But the only thing is it took us like three hours to figure out how to correctly hook up the back up camera. My only thing is you should create some instructions on how to hook up the back up camera. But overall it works smoothly and looks very crisp. Amaizing product and much care and assist by the seller! very happy!!
Best in use and easy to install Just like described. The seller is fast in response and excellent 100%
Works fine exept oem signal from the car, works fine with oem screen but not with the new screen!
Installation was for moderate experience level. CarPlay works nicely now. Comes up automatically and fast after starting the car. Takes some time to get the settings right, but when it does, it works very nicely. Had some additional questions after installation and they were answered swiftly by helpful Andream.
This carplay is insane , so customizable and sound is awesome . It goes verywell , no instructions is little minus . For you who dont know you must go to AMI aux on mmi then hold nav on steering wheel to acces carplay . For b8.5 (3-4-5 ) must be ( ON )MMI 3G Basic
La pantalla muy fácil de instalar, plug and play, fácil de manejar también.
Es cierto que le falta un poco de brillo para días muy soleados, pero funciona a la perfección y un precio genial.
Ademas el envío a España muy rápido, en 1 semana me llegó
Wanted to replace an Android unit I bought from AvinUSA few months back (1GB RAM/4 core). I never use Android software of car head units,, I bought a CarPlay adapter and downloaded an app called Autokit, but with 1GB RAM the unit kept crashing while streaming music via BT or trying to open maps even in Autokit app which technically uses the GPS from your iPhone. So that unit was pretty much good for BT music outside of Autokit app, nothing else.
Andream unit arrived 6 days after order placement.
Installation was flawless, fine quality of the unit and the iDrive controller, no connection problems so far. I would like to have slightly higher resolution but as long as it keeps working I can compromise for 300$. Sound quality of my stock H&K system drastically improved just by adjusting the EQ of the Andream unit..
Other brands charge x2 this price for sh*tty android units that keep crashing every 20 minutes especially in warm weather.
Would buy again!
Received the module within a couple of days after ordering. Questions asked about the device answered promptly and correctly, even before ordering. Dismantling the old screen was a bit of a hassle since this was my first time doing a task like this. Since there is no manual al all, with help of youtube both removing the old and replacing with the new is doable for a novice. What is not really shown anywhere is how to get the cables from the main unit to the screen, which does work with a electric installation wire for home wiring. Go via the side of the glove compartment. Did the job in 2-2.5 hours. A bit scared whether it all would work, but when pushing in the key, it all started up as it should.
There are a lot of pro's;
The look and feel of my car is facelifted to 10 years younger..!
When igniting, Carplay just starts
Navigation with Apple maps, but also FlitsMeister in the background
Clear screen, shows all carplay apps.
Split screen with navi and music
Long Press menu button switches between traditional BMW system (in my case the simple business version) and the apple carplay system.
The bright and clear 8.8" Touch screen
All Siri functionality via Hey Siri or the speak button on the steering wheel
All steering wheel buttons work
Perfect fit in the place of the original screen
The console button is not really useful in carplay mode, touch screen in the middle of the dashboard is not really a safe "hands free" option. Console button works as usual within the BMW menu.
Glare on the screen is not as much disturbing as I saw from people in other reviews. Still bought an 8.8" anti-glare screen protector (AliExpress) which was a millimeter too large). This may be to blame on the screen protector though. Decided to leave the carplay module as is, I don't see too much glare.
Bulky connection cable
Aux required, could there be a smarter way to do this?
You should set aux to manual in factory settings on the andream module, otherwise it continuesly skips back to the old BMW radio within a couple of seconds. Pincode for factory settings access on my device was 1368.
No installation instructions.
Did not test whether traditional BMW radio sound and carplay navi sound go simultaneously over aux yet, have been playing music from phone directly in combination with navi and works well. You need to tweak the loudness of your sound output in the settings of the andream device.
There are some BMW plugs left unused and an open connection left on the andream device which makes you wonder whether you did the job right. Without connecting this, all seems to work as it should.
4 stars because of the missing instructions, May be a legal thing.
Makes you even more want to drive your car without any purpose or destination.
Hope this helps.
First of all, got system working in Audi q5 build 2010 type 8R
System is fast !!
Took me Some time !!!! Because it didn’t work at once.
At first Looks like it Works like A charm but time Will tell
Had Some problems with the resolution and screen size (displayed screen was way to big)
Tried the solution given by S.L.( Posted here earlier ) And that Worked fine for me.
Note that this dip setting is not mentioned in user manual
Dip setting position is 1,2 off 3,4,5,on 6,7,8 off
Furthermore assist / support via messenger is good andream did try to answer all the questions I had.
Sometimes you have to wait A day of two but that is mainly due to different timezones
For now 5 star
This is great solution, installation took me max 1 hour, easy connection, no extra cable needed. And what is very important support is better than good. Any question answered very fast also seller suggest that I’m ordered wrong type of device and after checking, he were right. So I’m really happy of this purchase. Thank you.
Installation itself is easy, but tips n tricks section with this unit would be nice. Spend HOURS to find out why my AUX is jumping randomly back to FM. There is a setting in Andream unit under Factory section - set AUX mode: Either manual or Automatic (you want manual). That was sorted. Guys - Andream - please, don't be lazy and create a little HDI (How do I) for customers. Superb unit itself :) :) :)
Car: BMW e60 2006 CCC with small screen no navigation. Model with AUX in port, which means I did NOT needed to use actual 3.5mm jack aux in cable (it was wiring into the unit itself).
Decoder does not support Split Screen in Android Auto 7.4 even tought you can choose different sizes, see attached image, the size is fixed by decoder firmware.
Please could you tell me if the box that I bought for me Audi A7-2012 supports split view in Android Auto versión 7.4.
I Attack the software versión installed on my box.
Thanks for your answer.
The product works well and makes a big difference to the car- I have a 2017 RMC A7. Support is responsive and focused on helping (but timezone for this isn't ideal). They sent me replacement power cable and separately a replacement unit under warranty as first one was faulty.
Make sure they give you the right dip codes for the model and version you have. Any problems ask to be connected with tech support. It was very time consuming getting this done. Worth paying someone locally to do it for you if you have the option for this.
