Whistle Sat Nav Screen Replacement

Hi Guys
Anyone know where to purchase {UK} a new screen for the standard BMW sat nav unit? I can find places offering a replacement service at horrendous cost, can do the job myself if I can locate a screen!!
Cheers
Paul

Why don't you buy a whole new, modern unit to replace the system rather than just a screen? I'd suspect the price is comparable.

Yeah Ive considered that, but I've spent money upgrading the BM54 tuner unit already plus I don't think its a straightforward swap over!! Ill have to research it a bit more!

I also have a working digital TV tuner installed, does anyone know if there is an aftermarket unit which is compatible with the BMW sat nav and tv modules??

I'm not a fan of integrating old and new electronics, so my apologies for not being able to help with that. I have an Android 9 stereo system. The only thing I used that was provided by BMW was the wires.

I bought my replacement lcd screen from Aliexpress for US$75 in 2016 when my original one had a ton of dead pixels.

Search Aliexpress for LQ065T9BR51U or LQ065T9BR51. Don't get the ones with ribbon cables on the bottom and sides, you need the one with the connectors on the back. You can also find them on eBay but will be more expensive.

This thread has a lot of info: https://xoutpost.com/bmw-sav-forums/...v-monitor.html

Replacement instructions are here: https://www.germanaudiotech.com/page...e46-and-e53-x5

Just a bit of caution: I ordered LQ065T9BR51U, but I received LQ065T9BR53U. The screen works fine but the viewing angle is off and it's not as easy to read in direct sunlight as the OEM one. I was a bit annoyed at getting the wrong part number but not worth the hassle of replacing again.

Any of these parts will work (but 51 is the original and the viewing angle might be wrong for the others):
LQ065T9BR51
LQ065T9BR52
LQ065T9BR53
LQ065T9BR54
LQ065T9BR51U
LQ065T9BR52U
LQ065T9BR53U
LQ065T9BR54U

I had the same problem. Very important to get the correct part number or the viewing angle will be off.

After trying that I said screw it and installed the AVin Avant 4. Best money I've spent on my truck so far. Fantastic improvement over stock! I highly recommend it. You'll need the long cable to connect to everything in the rear, but it is essentially plug and play. You'll be able to make use of the existing GPS antenna as well. They are also set up to accept TV input.
