2009-2014 BMW X6 (E71) CarPlay and Android Auto Retrofit Multimedia Interface


IMI-1000 Retrofit CarPlay and Android Auto Interface
Our retrofit CarPlay and Android Auto kits are supplied with our IMI-1000 mini-computer which is connected to the rear of your head unit

The IMI-1000 is a retrofit compact kit that adds CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity in your BMW X6. The IMI-1000 works by communicating with your existing iDrive system as well as your in-car entertainment system (Including the OEM Steering wheel controls, iDrive rotary controls and associated buttons, vehicle speaker system and the Central Information Display). It operates in either by-pass mode or in “active mode”. In by-pass mode the IMI-1000 does not affect the normal operation of the in-car entertainment system, the standard BMW “CCC or CiC” user interface and the standard BMW navigation system(if fitted) will be shown on the CID when in by-pass mode. Active mode is initiated when you connect your mobile phone to the car via the wireless Bluetooth connection or USB cable. After connection, the IMI-1000 activates CarPlay or Android Auto (dependent upon the operating system of your phone, iOS or Android). The Central Information Display (CID) will then show the CarPlay or Android Auto user interface and unleash the power of CarPlay/Android Auto!


Retrofit CarPlay and Android auto dsp technology
The IMI-1000 features a high quality digital signal processor and DAC(digital to analogue converter) which provides unrivalled audio quality. See below an example RTA plot measured in a vehicle retrofitted with one of our IMI-1000’s
