Exclamation Group Buy #II for Ugode 7.1 system:)

As the title suggests, Ugode asked me if there were enough people to repeat the group buy we had a few months ago.
This is a link to the system: http://ugode.com/index.php/products_v_34_273.html
Here is the link to the topic with experiences: https://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1500481
Conditions will probably be the same as the previous one, depending on the amount of participants.
The no-signal issues seem resolved by removing the splitter (not delivered by Ugode btw) and using the latest software.
Speaking from a personal experience, Google maps is not usable due to sluggishness but having Waze really makes a difference compared to the original navi.
Also the screen itself is a big plus compared to the original, especially when you currently have a 6.5"

I am not in any way connected to Ugode but I took over the previous group buy and I am in contact with their representative often for software inprovements and bugfixes.
For clarity, please comment or ask experience or specific questions in the above mentioned forum thread and keep this topic for the future group-buy related questions only.

Just received pricing details:
The pricing is usd395 inlcuding shipping and 16G TF card. if group buy over 10 piece, we will return 10usd to buyers via paypal.

the options price is as following:

1. BMW rear camera: usd35

2. DVR: USD25

3. Carplay USB Dongle : usd60

4. Dab Radio Box: usd45

5. TV tuner box T2 : usd80


EDIT +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++



It looks like the group buy will be next week from 6 till 16th of September.
A link will be posted HERE to the Alibaba page where you can request an order from Ugode.
You need to include all options you want in the details as well as the remark that the order is part of the FORUM GROUP BUY.
You will then receive an order confirmation from Louie with the price.
This is EXCLUDING possible tax, charges of your selected payment method or other options you may or may not personally select.
The items are shipped by Ugode directly to your own home and in my personal experience, DHL delivers them within a few days from shipping confirmation from Ugode.
Warranty is 1 year for defects and return policy is 1 month after unit receipt.
F30, F10 and F25 models are part of the groupbuy, others on request.
Please also include in your remarks your current system since the CIC and NBT are different.
Best thing (Louie will probably ask you) If you have a 6pin or 4pin main cable.
Normally, CIC is 4pin and NBT is 6pin but there are exceptions as we have seen on the previous group buy.
Installation manual is not provided but there are enough YT videos and this forum is also loaded with instructions than basically everybody with half a brain and some guts can install it without issues.

Please fill in the spreadsheet in the link below we used on the previous groupbuy for me and others to have an overview who ordered one. When 10 people or more buy the unis, an additional 10USD will be refunded via Paypal.

I presume you need to provide a screen or need to add one as an extra item?

I'm interested for my wife's F46 2 series grand tourer....

One end of the dongle plugs into one of the usb inputs on the unit, the other end plugs into your iPhone.

Yeah, its kind off a Ugode group buy instead of a specific type of unit group buy
Please link this groupbuy topic in other threads if you want, I cannot check everywhere if people are interested off course....
Will check warranty, my personal experience is that warranty is organised properly since some of us had an issue (I had a software issue in the beginning) and this was all solved within days. I my case they were prepared to send a new PCB which would even be cheaper since those normally passes customs without getting picked out instead of bigger packages

Again, I need to stress that I am just a forum user like you guys and took over the previous group buy from another forum user. Questions that I dont know the answer to are passed on to my contact at Ugode (Louie) and therefore can possibly take some time to be answered.
Last time, about 20 users bought the unit in a week and was therefore very successful.

I am a satisfied user with the unit but keep in mind things like these are not bullet-proof and cannot be compared to a tablet for example.
Please read the experiences topic for details.

I am interested too. One question for the group buy, should the delivery country be the same for all?

Does the F30 10.25" screen support APIX2 (NBT EVOII 2017-on)?
