BMW F07 NBT Retrofit (or alternatives)

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

It`s gonna be a little bit long so please have patience.

I own an F07, from 2009. Last year I had a combox retrofitted (which after a while and the help of the forum, we made it work).

This year, though, I am not happy with it and I want more.  The screen has quite a few scratches and it looks like the satnav is a bit sluggish (at least thats what I think). I have been tinkering with and Android unit from AVIN but it`s not doing anything of what it says and it`s sluggish as well.

What I want is tho get waze on the screen of the sat nav or to get the satnav to work better and different resolution.

As far as I know the screen mirroring means that the phone`s screen has to be on all the time and that`s not what I want.

I have been looking all over the net and the best option is to retrofit an NBT.

My question is:

What do I need to retrofit NBT in my car ?

I will tell you what I know and please correct me if I am wrong.

I need an NBT (touch controller, unit and screen), an ZGW-02  and a few cables (going the OEM way as I have read that the emulator way is going to stop things work, buttons on the steering wheel and so on). What cables do I need ?

Is it hard to install it in the car ?

DO I have to pull some other wires ?

I know it involves coding and I know someone who can do it for me.

Thanks a lot for your time.
