ive been looking into this for a while I wonder if I should get it for a cic replacement I use my android everyday and to not be able to use it in my car is very upsetting has there been any update to the system or to the way it responds to your phones cause I see a lot of ppl aren't happy but a lot of ppl are?

I just bought an e90 from an owner who had already installed the 8.8Ē unit on a car with CCC. As everyone else has experienced, Bluetooth streaming is pretty bad...it sounds like no one has found a good solution there. Has anyone tried a USB or MicroSD connected directly to the AVIN? Is sound quality close to stock sound quality?

Also, in my experience when Iím on a Bluetooth call Iím totally stuck on the Android Bluetooth/phone screen and I canít switch out to look at Nav (google maps)? Has anyone figured out a way to do this, or are you just stuck on that screen any time youíre on a call?

I took a chance and pulled the trigger on this unit:

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/New-...ceBeautifyAB=0

It is a 32G ROM, 2GB model running Android 7.1. Otherwise, appears to be similar/same unit AVIN is selling including the BMW ID6 interface. It's a gamble. Don't know how their support will be. I'll report in when I receive it.
