I want to keep using my factory Microphone for my phone, as it is just closer and better. If i am using a navigation map on the avinusa screen, and someone calls my phone. Will i be able to pick up the phone using the idrive/steering wheel button. And then talk on the phone while the navigation app is running? (Very important for me that i can still pick up the phone, then using the factory Bluetooth and MIC while navigating.) - I would imagine that the built in microphone in the screen wont be very good, and i am not interested in fitting a new external one, as i have a perfect one already installed in the car.

I am also often on the radio screen, while the navigation is running. Then before i have to make a turn etc, the Oem system will show up on the screen showing where i have to turn. Is this also possible?

As i have read, bluetooth from the cars radio does not work while android screen is running.

This is all that is keeping me from ordering this tomorrow, as it looks really good, and will be a welcome upgrade visually for the car.

My app and BOX adapter are both on latest versions (just checked for updates, nothing available). AutoPlay: 2018.09.03.1744, Box: 2018.06.26.1620

So for now I have to leave my iPhone X on iOS 11.

9/19 UPDATE: Last night I had my buddy with an iPhone X that he just updated to iOS 12 plug into my unit. CarPlay worked. The issue must be something weird with my old iPhone 6S Plus. I updated my iPhone X to iOS 12 and used CarPlay on my way to work this morning, no problems.

In another thread in this forum you can find:
- MCU 17.07.2018 update
- OS 28.08.2018 update

Anyway those updates I'm suggesting to you are not AvinUsa specific, but just updates for Android 7.1 head units..

Android Split Screen

For those running 7.1 Android, can you run split screen when in android mode(long press on overview button )? (Not talking about BMW Split Screen). Meaning Google Maps in left panel and Google Music/Spotify in right panel? I know PIP is not available until 8.0 but am hoping someone creates a PX5/4GB unit for the F15s eventually...

I have the same question. I found FW from April, but not sure if it is the correct one... I loaded Jan and Nov images today and do not see ID6 interface. Not sure what's going on. I had november fm previously and ID6 interface along with updated ID5 interface was available in the factory settings.

Figured it out. Had to update factory.xml, ended up updating everything in OEM folder and it worked.

Hi,
Thanks all of you to try and help each other especially for those people who are not technical. The fact is that after sales is minus 100% from all sellers. They only help you since you buy and give them good money.
I bought Android 4.4 Car Multimedia Player GPS Navigation for BMW 3 Series E90 with BT DVD SD USB WiFi 4Core a year ago from China and still they don't give me a single update. One of my issues is the car type. I can't select other car model cause it freezes on only one model.
Very disappointed.

To moderator, maybe it would be usefull to create a new section on the forum for all of us having the Android screens. Main reason is easyness of find the answers for the questions as the same ones are beeing asked over and over again... just a suggestion

Anyone also having issues with Carplay, IOS12.1 and the iPhone XS? Can't get it to load even when after updating to the most recent AutoBox. However, it works with the 7s on 12.1.

Losing time and date

Hi all,

First time poster on here but following for a while.
Just received the AVINUSA Gen 2 unit (android 7) and on fitting the unit over the weekend I seem to have an issue. The BMWConnected drive is no longer holding the time and whether set to automatic or if I enter the time manually it remains at --:-- and will not set or hold the time or date.

This has a big knock on as my car is a 330e and uses this date and time to allow for offpeak charging and preconditioning of the cabin.

Has anyone seen this? I've searched the forums and given a good google with no luck.

Everything else works fine, including GPS.

Edit: I have made a video to demo the issue. Anyone seen this before?

As i have noticed in your video, you did not remove the fiberoptic cable from the main harness and reconnect it to the back of the headunit. This might be the problem.

Absolutely spot on. I though I just needed to move these if I had no sound so ignored them. Moved them today and clock back working!

Thanks!!!

i have a ugode system but i feel like theyre all the same.... anyways. has anyone been able to figure out how to enable the idrive select button? I use my system for carplay and its annoying to have to use the touch screen. My idrive wheel allows me to scroll through the apps but does not select when in carplay mode.

same goes for next track, has anyone been able to make a button work for skipping tracks? i have to use the touchscreen.
