yeah i had a look of that one, but I don't see the point to buy this brand $100 more than Andream for the same product.
I still don't understand if all of those hardware are from the same factory and from a generic firmware, each reseller is doing some little customization just to justify sticking their own brand on it.

Any tips on how to remove the climate control connector? Pressing what I think is the release tab only lets it partially disengage. It feels like itís hung up on one side.

I have the andream unit and custom software. If I press the option button for 3 seconds, it activates the front camera. Works great. My front camera is located above the lower grill and the parking lines makes it easier to gauge the distance to the curb.
That's great to know I need to find out if a custom software is available for RoadTop one aswell.

Thanks

May I know which versions you have. Need to see if they are cross compatible. I got the below versions?

I just installed a Carlinkit unit. Does anyone know if it's possible to have the system autostart in iDrive and not Carplay/MMI? I use satellite radio most of the time and just use Carplay for Google Maps/Waze.

Did this yesterday.

Just download "v2.0.B0.mod" from the first page extract the file on a formatted FAT32 USB drive.
Attach the USB drive to the unit.

Turn off the car and wait for the unit to shutdown.
For me it took like 5min.
Press and "Hold" the Back and button on the iDrive start the car and release the Back button once you hear a click from the unit. (probably 5sec)

The flash process should start.

Thanks in advance
Should be under the Head Unit section and called something along the lines of CE_DEVICE_SPEECH_RECOGNITION but you will need to enabled Expert Mode to see/change it.

Anybody notice really low call volumes? I find myself having to increase the volume a lot during phone calls and once the phone call is over the music is extremely loud. I have the A version of andream if that helps any.

Thanks for answer, So do I need to replace the MCU afterwards? If I need to change it, should I do it the same way? then can I revert to the carlinkit version if I want?

The MCU is included in the custom one.

I haven't reverted because this is much better.

From the custom you can flash without pin it seems, but i would use the same method as how I flashed the custom to revert back to stock.

But people here might have a better way.

I just finished installing andream. Everything went pretty fast.
I didn't get to explore much because it was late.
Came with the following software versions and mcu(b_v.1.1.2 and mcu20.8.19.23). There is something new for update or these versions are up to date?

I had this issue as well. Go into the mmi settings, lower the aux volume setting. This will make you increase the volume to listen to music, and when the audio switches over to idrive Bluetooth for calls, it should be at the same level.

I got the same MCU on a RoadTop unit, bought last month.
[COLOR="Blue"]
I will really appreciate if someone could kindly help me to identify the Custom Firmware I can install. I have BMW F20 December 2013 (NBT). [/COLOR]

I want to get the option to turn on Front camera by pressing a button (e.g. - option button) as the below post by @lawnmower351. Also hoping that the custom firmware will fix the random issue with the auto start.

Thank you so much.

Android. I haven't been able to check to much after installation.
I had some problems with the transmission selector (broken spring) and it took me a lot of time!

Tomorrow I hope to check/discover more about andream mmi ! I honestly don't really know what and how to do but I hope to find out tomorrow( how to connect , what settings to do , etc).I just installed autolink and android auto on my phone !

If you have some tips maybe you will send me a pm.
