Android upgrade - WOW!

I purchased the 10.25” Android Multimedia navigation system from DMP Car Design and I am VERY happy with the product!!

I own a BMW 2013 535i M Sport and the factory system was antiquated. I decided to upgrade it after doing a lot of research; I decided the DMP system was the best. The functionality of the DMP is flawless: all the factory functions still work such the backup camera, steering wheel buttons, Bluetooth connectivity, and BMW diagnostics plus the new features of high resolution touchscreen, CarPlay, streaming video and much more. Everything you need comes in the box! Installation and setup is easy and the customer support was outstanding from DMP. After watching a quick installation video on YouTube I started the install and when I had a question the engineer from DMP did a FaceTime call with me to answer my questions. In about 1.5 hrs the new headunit was installed and working perfectly. I own two F10 BMWs and I also plan to upgrade my ///M5 with the same unit. This navigation is better than factory; I believe this is how the car should be equipped from the factory. I give the DMP product and customer support a strong 5 out 5 rating! You won’t be disappointed!

How do you get audio from the unit? Is it using AUX? Also, does it use the factory mic?

These things are all over the web, it's like what do you pick and how do you know it's going to hold up.

The new headunit is working well. Once in a while when I play music over bluetooth audio I get a skip. CarPlay works perfectly. I still recommend this product.

great question OP!

so my question is since there's not enough info being shared is what issues did you run into that you had to contact BMP? this would be an out of state call i'm assuming. was there coding needed as most headunits do need some type of coding. just getting some clarifications that this is not a direct plug and play and forget it type upgrade

How is this different from the CarPlay MMI Prime? I'm on the fence of getting one from Bimmertech.

Carplay MMI maintains the headunit. It uses stock everything, and simply switches display from stock HU to carplay/Android Auto. The posted item is an entire replacement of the stock screen, and is basically an android tablet skinned to look like the stock system + carplay/android auto.

Thanks for the clarification. I suppose since I already have NBT, makes better sense for me to stick with the CarPlay MMI option. That's pretty neat though that someone was able to completely replicate the stock BMW experience in Android.
