2016-2019 BMW 3 Series NBT EVO iD4/iD5/iD6 (All body shapes – F30, F31, F34 and F80) CarPlay and Android Auto Retrofit Kit
The IMI-1000 is a retrofit compact multimedia interface that provides CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity in your BMW 3 Series.
This model is compatible with the BMW 3 Series (all body shapes (F30, F31, F34 and F80), dating between 2016 and 2019 with NBT EVO iD4/iD5 and iD6.
How it works
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 “NBT EVO iD4/iD5/iD6” 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!
Where is it installed?
You can install the IMI-1000 above or below the glove box, the image below shows the IMI-1000 being installed above the glove box in a BMW F30.
All IMI-1000’s are compatible with front parking camera, reverse parking camera and 360 degree cameras.
