CCC - CIC RetroFit and Reverse Backup

I am in the process of retrofitting CIC in my CCC e92. I also want to add a reverse camera with a dynamic lines feature. I already have PDC from my CCC optioned car. What are people using to add the reverse camera feature on a CIC retrofitted car?

Another option is a Carplay MMI. That is the easiest way to add the backup camera. Or don't retrofit and use a CCC Carplay MMI. I retrofited CICs into 3 of my cars. I then added Carplay. Now I never use the CIC.

Thank you for the replies! For that retrofit does that enable dynamic lines?

Thank you for that information! I read up on that and I am trying to avoid the sound having to go through AUX. I am very particular with sound and I heard those machines do not produce great sound. I know to some people it doesn't bother them but that was the reason I opted for a retrofit of CIC. What are you thoughts on the sound quality?

I have 3 of those boxes now. 2 have weak sound. The one I linked has sound quality equal to what the combox is capable of. All my cars have Logic 7 and we are picky about sound quality.

Awesome, I appreciate the quick response. It looks like I am changing my whole project to that box. I am guessing this is the same box Bimmer-tech sells for 700 bucks. I do not have an iPhone. Does this have Android Auto built-in?

I don't know about the bimmer tech one. It did not exist when I purchased mine. I don't have android. I do know wireless android auto is not as mature as the wired version. Worst case, you may need to plug in. Which I have to do to change for trip of duration.

Are you running the sound through aux or, through the quad lock? I just bought the same unit. It was nice to see it had a built in dsp.

Just got mine today but I didn't receive a quad lock. Is that how it's supposed to be?

Finally got around it. The box is powered off the idrive controller harness. Native audio from aux sounds clogged. Thankfully CarPlay allows for external audio devices. Used my tune2air and audio sounds crisp & clear. Steering controls work too
