Anyone tried adding carplay to their E82/E88?

I'm seeing items like this on aliexpress and elsewhere: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3303...d4664814RI7zhE

It looks like some box that adds carplay and some other features to your box. It mostly looks like it just hijacks the display signal and uses a built-in computer in the box to do carplay.

Anyone have any experience with this? It looks enticing.

I was just randomly looking at this today too and the one I found is Carlinkit Fit For BMW CIC

Please keep us posted on what you do.

I looked at both the links. It appears they're using a more updated MMI (multi media interface) box. I can't attest to how CarPlay or Android Auto would work using these boxes. But if you want to see what is involved in installing a system such as this, look at the thread I created on installing the Bimmertech backup camera retrofit.

Very cool. Thanks for the link. Now I just need real world feedback if any of these CarPlay devices actually work

Any word on the EBay unit? It appears you have to have connected drive coded into your combibox to have it pull up on screen. Need to see if it's available for mine, I have a 2011 manufactured 9/2010
