Ty OB. Yes. Unfortunately I do have DSP and Nav.

I have a DDPai m6 plus front dash cam now. It’s at least 1080p, if not 4K. I was hoping I could use something more modern that a 720p camera.

Excellent list of options. Puts things into perspective. It is actually not that bad. Ty again OB.

I agree that 1080p to 4K is now a standard in video but the 720p still looks really good. Then only thing I will ever need that DVR for will be in the event of a traffic incident and at that point even 480i would still tell the story.

Let us know if you go with the Avant-4 system, we have already paved a trail for you...

PX6 vs. PX5 Avant-4

Just a PSA for anyone considering a PX6 Avant-4 for the E53 X5. The new PX6 has a completely different chassis with the main circuit boards offset to the left.

One thing I really liked about the Avant-4 PX5 was that it had the main boards centered to the chassis and was nearly a single DIN chassis that required only the slightest of modification to the dash bracket that is on all Business CD with Mid. Factory navigation owners will not have any plastic bracketing so not an issue for you guys.

Personally, I kept everything as close to stock as I could on my PX5 install and I could return to Business CD and mid if I ever wanted to, the brackets were still there and could support the original components just like before.

If I were to modify my dash brackets for the PX6, I would have to cut everything out to the left side and while this would allow the PX6 to fit, I would never be able to return to the factory Business CD and Mid.

It seems now that the Avant-4 PX6 4416 will fit all E38, E39 and E53 models with a different outer frame depending on the model.

Just food for thought for anyone considering a PX6 Avant-4 starting without factory navigation.

I have a PX6 Avant-4 running Android 9 sitting in a box now...
