While the unit (CarPlay Head unit) is inactive, the original video signal is passed unchanged and your car works as before.
After activating the CarPlay Head unit, the CarPlay unit video signal is shown on the display instead.
When you reverse the car while using the CarPlay system, the system will automatically switch to the camera without manual operation.
You can easily switch system back and forth between the unit and your original head unit.

Very easy install in a 2015 BMW 528i Xdrive. Setup was simple. You may want to disconnect the battery when doing this as I blew Fuse 105 in the trunk when squeezing the extra wires in. Great product, great price and quick shipping. Super happy with it!
Apple CarPlay & Android auto Head unit for BMW Series 5 F10 F11 F18
Only a few cons. The installation instructions could be a little bit more clearer, I wish the screen was as anti-glare as the OEM screen and lastly, my sideview camera doesn't automatically take over the video input the way the 360 and reverse camera do. I have to switch to the OEM view and then the sideview camera works.
However, the unit works exactly as explained. Not only is it the lowest priced option I've seen, but it offers exactly what I wanted - Android Auto/CarPlay. It is a shame that only CarPlay is wireless but there are dongles coming out soon to make AA wireless as well. The touchscreen also seems pretty responsive and it's cool that the iDrive controller can also interact with the system. I'm overall pretty satisfied with the end result.
Haven’t installed it yet ... but it looks great ... can’t wait to see how it looks
