Complete AVIC- D1 install....NAV, XM, & DVD.

THIS ENTIRE SET UP IS FOR SALE, the X is getting dumped...please refer to the Items for Sale Forum!
Ok gang...I am going to this Sat have the Pioneer Avic-D1 double din with NAV and XM Radio installed in my X5. Rich Silva custom made the face plate that will house the Avic in where the Business Cd player and factory were located.


I can tell you this already....it is going to look incredible!!!! After doing a test fit I also have to say that I really do not feel at though I am going to sacrifice any thing by not staying OEM.

The Avic has a very non descript unobtrusive face combined with Rich's quality custom made bezel plate I am giddy with anticipation. I am forgoing many other mods that I want right now to get the interior sound the way that I want it.

The other reason I went this route was due in part to the six disk DVD changer also from Pioneer that I have in the rear that I am going to link to the head unit and be able to control from the touch screen. No remote! So I will be able to by pass the safety measure and be able to run the two head rest and the dash unit all from the front seat.

So I will have XM, NAV, a six disk Dvd changer and three screens. I am going to take pics along the way and give an up date on cost.

When removing the head unit oem stereo it runs data to the amp thus powering the speakers...no head unit...no sound....solution 4 channel amp to run the speakers. That is adding $350 to the install. Other than that..things are goin ok......more to follow...



Also combined with the

Pioneer GEX-P10XMT XM Satellite Radio/Nav Traffic Tuner $133.25 EBAY

Pioneer AVIC-D1 In Dash Double Din Navigation $1018.85 EBay

PAC SWI-PS Pioneer Sony Steering Wheel Interface AVICN2- D1 $54.95 EBAY

Installation by professional…(long time friend owns his own place) $200.00

4 channel amp to power speakers from double din....$350.00

$50.00 for RCA Cables

The grand total of everything intalled.......$1982.05

That is a lot of MOD money but every penny I have gotten back already!!!!!!!! This thing ROCKS.

Bezel by Rich Silva…..( sorry I got the guinea pig price, please consult with Rich)

Six disk Dvd/CD and two head rest monitors already in vehicle.

Wow, should be pretty sweet. My brother has the AVIC-N1 in his Qx4, and it definitely blows away any OEM nav unit. You must most some pictures when they install is finished!

That faceplate looks awesome. Most aftermarket jobs I've seen completely wreck the look of the interior, but that plate looks very clean. Make sure you post pics after...

How hard is this to do on an X5 if you just want the Nav/DVD player with no other monitors or DVD changer?
Seems a bit easier than a OEM retrofet?

Thanks, excellent post

Talking Update

Ok...so we did a test fit and a power up...the factory speakers sound at least 30% better off of this unit with the four channel amp...CRisp. Clear. Loud. the NAV IS AWeSOME....DVD AWESOME....Three screens playing video AWESOME!!!

the install has been a bit slower due in part that this was the first X5 that the installer had done....his experience was with 5 series mostly and was surprized how detailed and "tight" the X5 was in comparision.

Still having issues keeping the computer going. I have seen other post that discuss this problem, but of course when I have to deal with it I cannot find them, any way...we got the business CD out and the OEM head unit....the harness plugged right into the doubledin using a aftermarket adapter...that leaves only the data wire left.

We were going to mount under the seat and then feed the wire but on plugging it in the OEm head unit we got nothing...then we tried to plug into the back of the biz CD and there is an issue with the number of prongs....what am I missing...Please advise...I would like to keep this functionality.
