Well somebody has made a unit for the pre-facelift x250
Who's going to be the first to try it out??

Doesn’t say if it maintains the original functionality of the display unit. If it doesn’t the units that fit x250 start from £30.

this sounds more attractive to me:

The carplay will not work in the early x250
If a system can support both pre-facelift and and facelift, it is a complete replacement and I am wondering if it can use existing amplifier or other functionalities.
The only way is they splice into lcd and maintain the original unit.

One of the screens shows a tag with "original" on it, I assume that shows the car controls??

I've just been looking at this and there's even a link on YouTube with someone actually doing a full installation :D here's the link:
He's a Brummi who now lives in the Sates :p




Here's the link to their website (UK Firm)


If my TV hadn't just died I'd have bought one ;)

The pre-facelifts use a different system and I don’t believe they have the right video inputs.

The website that sells the carplay state that it won't fit the pre-facelifr as it has the Denso unit in I believe!

Do you think they use video inputs? Like the front camera?

I believe that’s part of how they work, yes. The one I was looking at, from Unique, takes over the satnav input but I vaguely remember it mentioning audio/video inputs.

In video he uses phone button. I don’t know how they can take control of the display other than opening the display unit. There are Raspberry Pi shields that can drive these displays just like an adapter. The rest is very easy.

Which one are you referring to?

The Unique AD ones uses a piggy back harness I believe. It’s the JoyAuto unit from Aliexpress.

You are right. I though the connection HU and display unit is data connection. or maybe they replicate the map real time. I noticed the next track button on steering wheel doesn’t work. Just audio volume button works.
