I have a similar unit with the octa core.

It's the 10.1.1 and by flipping the original head unit trim upside down it gave a better angle, but I didn't have to do any trimming and I used auto body trim tape to lock it in.
Hopefully my (just received) ASWC1 will bring back my steering wheel controls...

I'm very jealous of your amps but getting good amplifiers here is as difficult as finding a porkchop.

How much longer are you stuck over there in the sand box?

Yours did not come with a canbus box to translate the steering wheel presses? Uh oh, going to have to open mine up to check it...

I went with a TPMS system that uses a rear camera video interface to patch in the image of the wheels and pressure/temp values. I like it and have it on my E53 as well as the E46.

It has saved my a$$ a few times!



My factory TPMS in the E46 no longer functions (even with new sensors in the wheels-probably receiving sensors) and my E53 didn't have one installed from the factory.

Could you provide a link for the front dash cam that you have selected? Thanks.

I'm over here as long as I want, kind of a thank you position. But I'll probably just stay till my fun-meter is pegged.

No mine didn't come with the canbus relay but hey pretty much ALL the fun over here is finding stuff...

Sure thing Mike.

Have a link to your tpms system? Sounds interesting as I want the functionality but don't want to lose the usb input.

Thanks!

Standby and I will try to look it up.

Here is the TPMS I purchased and integrated into my rear camera video feed using the supplied interface box

It's supposed to get here today. I'll hook it up and report back. I don't really mind fisheye as long as license plates are legible. But I could see it bothering some.

Thanks Mike. I'll check that out.

Take a pic if you can and post it. I looked at the Avin unit and it must be the same piece. 170 FOV as well.
