My CCC + rear camera + video airplay = nice ~$300 upgrade

XCarLink CCC Multimedia Adapter - $200 shipped

Boss Audio Miracast/Airplay device - $87 though I scored it for $73.

$27 handle mounted rearview camera (eBay special).

Camera has been in for a few weeks and working well. Miracast device has been installed just this morning, so I need some time to fully evaluate it. But the pics show Waze from my phone straight on the CCC. No more crappy BMW navigation on the screen for me.

Screen looks like crap when vertical but is acceptable horizontal. Too bad Sirius and Pandora don't display horizontally. My iPhone 6 Plus stays perfectly in place on the ash tray, even with hard acceleration and corners.

I just went online and saw your post. That's weird the app doesn't show any of the text, it just had the images. Do I need the 200 thing? Or was that so your rearview camera will work?

Without the XCarLink, there is no way to interface with the CCC screen.

Menu button switches between normal CCC operation and the Mircast box input. Rear camera triggers it automatically when the car is put into reverse.

Via the XCarLink box. It wires in between the display and the Nav unit.

I must say this AirPlay device is working well. Phone connects to it every time thus far and it just works.

So I'm pretty new to this side of the house, but how does the BMW iDrive (CCC) Multimedia Video Interface work and what are all those added features on the link you provided?

Doing this

Just bought all the stuff for this. I figure I could purchase the new maps form BMW for $200. OR I can spend a little more, use my always updated phone maps and get a rear view camera. Sounds like a no brainer to me! Scored the Boss AirPlay for 65 bucks from an Amazon Warehouse Deal too!

You do know you can download new maps for free and just burn them to DVD. I have the newest (and last that will be made for the CCC) that I scored from here on E90 Post. CCC nav is still. Garbage even with the new maps.

For the CIC bimmertech offers a miracast device called smart view for their back up cameras. There is also a option for just the dongle on their website. One of the members of forums installed it recently.

I planned to get it with the backup... I get paranoid backing up sometimes.

I remember reading about the map updates actually and didn't even think about doing that... Thanks for that though! Ill have to remember that for future if I ever decide to take time for that.

The maps feature is extremely hard to use from what I have experienced anyway. I mainly have it on the side so I can at least have a visual of street names (the ones that are correct still) if I'm driving around.

Guessing the miracast device requires xcarlink multimedia adapter and no way to plug it directly to CCC module?
