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).

CarPlay and Android Auto are full screen

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!

All IMI-1000’s are compatible with front parking camera, reverse parking camera and 360 degree cameras.

AUX INPUT

If your car does not have Aux input, you will need to code Aux input using bimmercode or we can code it for you remotely via VPN (additional fee is applicable), all you will need is an ENET cable and a laptop with internet access. We will login via your laptop and activate Aux.

If you have bimmercode or similar, you will be able to code Aux yourself and we can guide you on the parameters required for this.
