  1. TOOGOO 8.8 Hd Car Gps Navigator 6-Core Android 9.0 Car Multimedia Player Car System for 5 Series E60 E61 E62 E63 / 3 Series E90 E91-CCC https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07VSP87XV/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_A2kEDbEDFAD67 Hello. I'm considering this replacement screen from Amazon UK for my E61 2007 535d. The specs all look good, with android 9 and decent memory. I am not up to date on the processor though. My car has the required Aux input. It's alot cheaper than others, so I am wondering what the catch is. As I would be ordering through Amazon UK there will be no duty to pay even though delivered from China as it is in Amazon's seller's conditions that seller covers any extras. Please would someone be able to advise? Thanks in advance. Michael.
  2. Has anyone gone down the route of using a Raspberry Pi with a live/smart ignition power and a 7inch tablet for a screen? the memory is flash, so very inexpensive, and the OS can pretty much do what you want as you should be able to run an embedded windows OS or even Ubuntu or whatever you feel like? very inexpensive, but extensive usage and possibilities. mapping on the fly, OBD reading and fault clearing without having to resort to using a laptop or anything else? just popped into my head this morning when looking for the INPA and Progman software. there's loads of space in the area where the head unit would sit, and if using a single DIN unit, then you have some space on top/below in which to house the unit and hijack the head unit smart power to be able to use the ignition on/off and steering harness from the headunit harness. @DennisCooper is this something you or Plus or anyone have looked at? Would be a fun P.O.C to make, and <£50 for most of the bits, and a cheap as chips head unit and tablet. Cheers! Deepan

  4. I have 57 plate E60 520d M-sport done 125K miles. My Idrive no longer switches on when I start my car. I had a number of faults before it completely stopped working but I am not sure if they are related. Please see a list of faults which occured before the failure: 1. CD player started making a noise when trying to read CDs like something was touching the CD when it was spinning. My boy may have put something in the CD player but I don't know. This happened atleast a month before 2. A week before the AM radio used to cut out On the day of the failure the screen froze and when I switched the car off the back light was off but you could still see the frozen screen. After returning to my car a few hours later the screen was blank and hasn't turned on since. I was wandering if the computer has crashed and just needs rebooting like a PC. What would happen if I disconnected the battery and reconnected it. Would it cause any harm and would I need any security codes. Any advice would appreciated. thanks Os
