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” 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!

1 review for 2004-2014 BMW 1 Series (All body shapes – E81, E82, E87, E88) CarPlay and Android Auto Retrofit Multimedia Interface

  1. Jeff Burton

    I bought a 2006 BMW 1 series on eBay without checking if it had satellite navigation, only to find out it did not! After some research I came across these CarPlay boxes and took the plunge as I wanted to use Waze on my cars built in display. I received my box quickly, was offered great support by integrated and was quickly up and running.

    The interface works brilliantly and I would never go back now!
