Put them in a darkened car, playing some Barry Barry White and you just may end up starting a stereo factory

Not in a real hurry to throw it in, my Avant-4 PX5 Android 8.0 Oreo works flawlessly.
Well got a burst of "let's do this" this morning and I should have verified the part number before removing the old unit. Went to put it in and found the dimensions are different. Hmmm, a quick part number check and sure enough, they sent me one for an E38 7 series.

Now that is funny! I swear you missed your calling and should have been a comedian. I guess when you ever get tired of blowing sh*t up, you could find work easily on the stand up circuit.

On the bright side, the AVIN Avant-4 DDVR app got an update for ADAS lane departure and collision avoidance. Last version had a Chinese lady telling me to pay attention. Now we have alert sounds. Much better.

My boss never laughs when I say: It's all fun and games till someone's car blows up in the parking lot.

On the bright side my wife doesn't laugh in the bedroom

So I just installed a Jensen Unit in my work van. All I can say is Damn son.



I need carplay in my X.



I have a few questions for you, now professional e53 audio gurus.

1. Does this come with carplay out of the box. I have an Iphone. Plan is to keep iphone.

2. What did you guys buy as far as accessories. And did you have to buy from them specifically. Like, will a USB dash cam from another brand work?



I'm trying to compare these things with the capable features and prices. Thanks.



P.S. You guys about to make me spend money, liking how they look.

Happy to advise you SlickGT1 but I need a little more info on your X5.

1. Do you have factory DSP?
2. Do you have factory navigation?

These options add a little cost to the overall price but necessary for correct operation.

There are several options I have on mine but I did them over time and not all at once so the money drain was easier for me to handle.

The cost of the Avant-4 PX5 with Android 9 is currently at $329 at Avin so that is the lowest I have ever seen it.

These are the numbers I have run for you assuming you have factory navigation and DSP.

Avin Avant-4 PX5 Android 9 $329 (PX6 add $89.99)
DSP/BC license with iBus adapter $89.99
BMW Quadlock 6M Navigation Extension Cable for factory navigation $59.99
Wireless Apple CarPlay / Android Auto - USB Adapter $99.99
DUAL DVR Camera System - Records front and back camera $64.99
Rear camera $12-$20

Other options are TPMS, 3.5mm auxiliary audio/video input, external microphone, offline GPS maps for navigation.

My system is:
Avin Avant-4 PX5 Android 8
DSP/BC license and iBus adapter
iGo offline GPS maps
Dual DVR camera system
Apple CarPlay/Android Auto
External microphone
3.5mm auxiliary audio/video input

To answer to one of your questions regarding the dash cams, theirs is $65 for HD 720p front and 480i rear and offers a pretty stout app to go with it to record video all the time, playback video from within the app, and my favorite feature of lane departure and collision avoidance alerts. See video attached.
