The new ANDRO 10.3-inch anti-glare screen, which meets all BMW OEM quality requirements, is compatible with BMW 1/2/3/4 series models manufactured since 2013, as well as the new X1, which was introduced last year. It is specifically designed to replace older 6.5-inch legacy screens.
“This advanced, Android touch screen goes beyond industry standards by allowing the driver to connect to online music applications such as Apple Music and Spotify, as well as navigation systems such as Waze, among others, which can be downloaded anywhere,” notes SDS Vice- president Amir Weizer. “The screen affords a driving experience comparable to those featured by other leading luxury cars, such as Tesla, and, via its built-in USB port, can be connected to external devices that employ HD or other video formats,” Weizer adds. “And for BMW owners, what’s particularly important is that its installation does not compromise the car warranty in any way.”
Integrated with BMW’s iDrive Computer System
The new screen is fully integrated with iDrive, BMW’s computer system that controls most secondary vehicular functions. It can also be retrofitted to connect to a rear-view camera, and because it supports BMW’s Park Assist System (PAS), it provides a more expansive view when the driver is in the process of reverse parallel parking. The screen, moreover, features a new NBT EVO user interface, enabling effortless installation and operation.
Available beginning on August 10, the screen may be purchased on BMW dealer websites, from automobile leasing companies and dealerships. It is priced at $955, payable in four convenient payments. Installation, which takes about 20 minutes and can take place either at any BMW dealership or at the customer’s residence, will cost $125.
Bimmerfest East 2017, the largest BMW car show in North America, will be held July 29-30 at Raceway Park in Englishtown, New Jersey.
