Love it. Game changer. Would love to collaborate and get your product out to my followers. If you’re feeling interested let me know.
I purchased this about a month ago and was very intimidated at the seemingly complex installation process but I must say it wasn’t nearly as difficult as I thought. The most difficult part was taking apart the dashboard without breaking any of the clips but once that was done wiring the unit was very straightforward.
I did need to change a couple of the factory settings in order for it to be completely seamless for my 2005 BMW E60 but once that was done everything worked flawlessly!
I could not be more satisfied with the product and the customer service I received. Anyone with an older BMW should definitely buy this.
My son and I installed the unit on his 2008 328i E90. We watched some YouTube videos to get an idea how to do it. The kit does not come with instructions and the video they offer is in German. We struggled the most with getting the big adapter cable in a space where we could then replace the CCC box correctly. After a couple of afternoons and many hours, I realized that it I unplugged the cable from the CCC box and shoved the adapter cable to the lower left side of the space and not the right as we saw on many videos, I could get the CCC box in correctly. We would have saved hours had we known that ahead of time.
The operation of the unit is good. We found that when the back up camera comes on or navigation announces a turn, the audio of an in-progress call is interrupted.
Cons: difficult installation due to lack of instructions. The glare off the screen is troublesome. The I Drive controller seems to need calibration.
PROs: great value for the money.
Screen was perfect only issue i had was the camera didn’t work and yes I plugged everything up correctly this is my second time buying this product
I'm really glad I bought this. Now that I have it, I can't imagine going back to the OEM display. However, the installation is not trivial, and WAKAA does not provide any help. There are no instructions in the box. The video on the WAKAA website is in German. The instruction pdf of the website is almost impossible to read after printing and doesn't explain how to install it physically. The only way to install the radio after adding the huge new connector is in the bottom right side towards the passenger footwell. I could only get the connector down there by attaching a string to it, fishing it into the passenger footwell, and pulling hard while pushing the radio. I also have a convertible and the cable for the rear camera needs to be 10' longer. I had to splice another cable into the camera cable.
But I'm glad that I bought it and installed it.
