My 2005 X5 Aftermarket Radio Install Thread

Figured I'd start a thread for it as I just ordered it.

I paid extra for the 3 to 5 days shipping from china or wherever its coming from.

I'll post more info once it arrives. If its a lemon out of the box I'm not giving this company any advertising. This is a new one I have never had before so trying something new. Not going to lead someone down a crappy path if it turns out bad on the order.

Its very dark here today with thick clouds. So the pics are a bit dark. I should of used the flash and will from this point on.

Unboxing. Not a real fan of unboxing stuff people do but I was VERY impressed with the packaging on this one over the eonons I had bought so here it is.

The radio itself. Notice the wifi antenna on the back of the radio. Should have REAL wifi range compared to the other android units I have and have seen. Also since its external I can add one of my very powerful wifi antennas from my wifi isp biz if I want to.

Ive got it powered up and it looks sweet. No sound for some reason but I had to run inside so will check it again in a sec. I want to make sure it works perfectly before I run the cables thru the car.

I have a bunch of new pics and will upload shortly.
