When you find a loose cable in the console........

And start trying to figure out where it goes and what it is for. Next thing its 11:30 at night and you have this in your passenger footwell. The car had a comprehensive Panasonic stereo system with GPS navigation, TFT touch screen, reversing camera and DVD and HDD integrated into the OEM system installed in Japan. It is now back to the factory CCC professional stereo with re-coded radio frequency and the address book has been sorted to english for the Bluetooth phone connection. Next on the list is to add Apple Carplay/Android Auto to the OEM system. I am pretty happy with the sound from the factory speakers and twin subs so I am hoping to retain them as well as the popup LDVS screen.

Keen to see which way you go on the Android integration with CCC as I'm also wanting to do this.

I’m looking at getting one of these:

There is a seller on Trademe selling them in NZ for $650.00. I think this is their website:

Installation looks pretty straightforward and it integrates to all of the OEM components including the iDrive controller and display screen (10 pin CCC LDVS display).

I’ve put a couple of these in now, firstly the i3 and now the F01. Basically no brand things about that money, Both are great and I would recommend. Great having wireless CarPlay. And really not complex install, especially compared to that wiring you’ve just dealt with !
