Also, what if I need to use heat during the colder months? Will this unit blow up lol? I can't imagine heat directly from the vent would be a good idea.

Honestly, it does everything I need that my stock non nav system didn't. The app for carplay can be a little inconsistent with the wired connection. I have a back up cam but I haven't installed it. The microphone doesn't pick up well but I put it in the stock mic location but I didn't place it well so I need to adjust it and check again. Overall, I can't really complain. They have new units with android 10. The unit I have can't be upgraded from android 8.

I can't recall all the costs, but I believe it was about $375 for the HU. Then about $20 for the fascia. Another $20 for the BMW harness from Joying. About $2.00 for the screws and thats about it. Maybe $5 for a 6' male to female USB. Thats USD.

Yeah, I thought about this. You can mount it lower so it's not in line with the vents, but I never use heat on the face vents in the winter. I always use the defog function only. That is a definite sacrifice you need to make if you want to mount it higher and get heat to the face.

I really like this setup, but I can't find a 10.25" model listed anywhere. Does anyone know if Joying still makes this or if it was discontinued? I was considering the 9" option but I think I'd prefer this route if it's still available.

So after a few months of use, would you say the screen size is good enough for you? I'm deciding between this one and the 10.1", which is a bigger screen despite a smaller number because it's more squarely than the 10.25" that you have. I understand I would have to mod the climate control to fit the 10.1", but I thought bigger is better no?
