Nope but definitely interested. Just noticed yesterday that my radio screen is starting to fail.... Some of the pixels at the top are faded depending on what characters are underneath...

that looks pretty cool, too bad that place is in Sydney

I wonder if I can find someone in Brisbane to install it...

I would love to know how well this works in practice. It looks as if the air-con controls get moved down a "step" to make room for the screen?

Yeah, I have to agree. I'm not crazy about how the Dynavin looks once fitted from the pics I've seen. That said, I think Dynavin do an Android-powered (2.2 unfortunately) unit, rather than WinCE as with Xudox.

Imagine what you can do with a Win 8 based unit that takes all the x86 programs!

lol that ship sailed many moons ago

I hope window 8 will be the death of microsoft.... *wishful thinking*

anyway - back on topic, I would be surprise if that head unit will play nice with all the other factory stuff.

From memory some guy that installed the dynavin still needed the factory unit hooked up to keep some of the factory functionality.

I thought this model fit also

http://www.dynavin.com/products/product_dnv_e9xm.php

I know the other one is a bit of a change if you like your vents bigger.

I emailed them asking about this. Waiting to hear back. I was thinking of trying to convince BMW to install it for me compo, since I have the "dead/distorted pixels in hot car" issue and this is usually replacfed under warranty

Personally if I were to upgrade the head unit I would go the whole hog.

and go with the new iDrive retrofit.

pfft coming from the guy doing a 1M conversion

haha but you know it works good the Dynavin range or similar Android offering seems to be really sluggish and doesn't interact well with factory stuff.

Learnt my lesson with my SLK putting in an aftermarket Head unit, worst experience ever - should have just gone with a retrofit of OEM head unit!

anyway if you email them - give them your VIN# and they will let you know what is possible what is not, and create a iDrive CIC Package for your car.

May or may not require remote coding - depends on the car.
