Correct me if i'm wrong?
Looks like it has much better features than BMW NBT.. Android maps are much much better than BMW maps. Allows Torque so you can pull up errocodes from the menu. Allows easy retro fit of back up camera and no coding required. Easier to install too.

That's the one. Retains factory Sirius XM and supports L7 as well. Damn, that's tempting.

That is a seriously impressive kit! I'd like to see how "solid" it physically feels in the dash in person. From the pictures though, it seems great.

Has anyone put the avin system in their car? Also, is there any promotion from bmwretrofit (black friday perhaps) that might get their system closer to the same price point??

Wow, didn't think companies would be releasing something like this for the e90 without nav. The fit and finish looks really good from the pics.

Since it's running android, I wonder if it can be used with MHD.

So a few complaints about the Avin is that the volume doesn't get very loud at all, this is the e90 kit that replaces iDrive. No idea about the one above.

I was about to go for an EVO2 retrofit, but this by far is the best aftermarket nav I've ever seen! Easy install, and you keep all of the original features. That's so cool!

I'm not exactly sure what you are asking. I've installed both NBT, and NBT EVO units, I've also used eNBT adapters from BimmerRetrofit, and BMW Custom Retrofit Garage. I found that adapters from both worked pretty well, but to me the ones from BMW Custom Retrofit Garage work just a little better - for example, I was never able to get the Pathway Lighting setting to work with the BimmerRetrofit adapter, but it works with the one from Custom Retrofit Garage. Not a big deal, but it's something. Plus, BimmerRetrofit adapters are locked to a single car, you can't swap the adapter to another car down the road, with the Custom Retrofit Garage adapters, that's not a problem.

I have a non-iDrive 2006 330i, and I installed an NBT EVO kit from an F01 (2015 7 series, I believe).

The coding work was done by BimmerRetrofit, but I installed everything myself. It wasn't difficult, but I followed the install/repair/replace instructions in the BMW software (DIS) and also used my Bentley manual as a reference.

Total retrofit time was over three days, but working about 3-4 hours a day, with lots of breaks, lots of referring to Bentley & DIS, and enjoying the process all the while.

I now have full functioning Apple CarPlay, iDrive, BMW Apps, Bluetooth, VideoInMotion, Msport power monitors (live/virtual hp & tq), etc.

While I installed the physical rear view camera w/dynamic lines, I still need to route the lines through the trunk hinge boot.

Thanks! It really updated the interior.

It is the non-touch screen but *does* have the touch wheel.

Given the location of the E90 screen, I personally found it to be easier to navigate/deal with the touchwheel than with the touchscreen while driving.

ahh okay thanks for clarifying, yes I agree it would be harder to touch the screen in an e9x.

No problem! Not to hijack the thread too much, but if you have any questions about the upgrade, feel free to ask and I will do my best to answer. I've been a slacker - I've meant to write up a thread on the install but haven't done that yet.
