Bimmertech Android Auto MMI Prime Retrofit
NOTE: THIS PRODUCT DOES NOT COME WITH A SCREEN-THIS IS A MULTIMEDIA INTERFACE (MMI) THAT INTEGRATES INTO YOUR CURRENT SYSTEM
Dreamed about using your Android phone safely and conveniently in your BMW? We’ve heard your prayers — our Android Auto MMI Prime means you don’t have to envy the owners of other car makes.
Just like with our previous generations of Android Auto MMI, you’ll be able to use many of your Android phone's apps, including Google Maps, Waze, Tidal, Spotify, Google Play Music, WhatsApp, Kik, Messenger and more all on your car's native dashboard screen. For maximum convenience, control and navigate between apps with your vehicle's built-in controls, or with your voice thanks to Google Assistant at just a press of the Voice Command button.
BimmerTech’s Android Auto MMI Prime upgrade is compatible with F-series cars with newer or older iDrive generations (e.g. ENTRY, ENTRYNAV, CHAMP2, NBT, NBT EVO ID4, etc.). It also features CarPlay functionality for iPhones.
Android Auto MMI Prime features:
- USB connection for Android Auto and Android Screen Mirroring
- USB port for multimedia
- Full-Screen Mode
- Easy control with iDrive and steering wheel buttons
- Supports CarPlay for iPhones
- Integration with Front and Rear View Cameras
- High-quality audio with an equalizer
1. USB connection for Android Auto and Android Screen Mirroring
Simply connect your Android phone to our MMI Prime and start using Android Auto while charging your phone. You won’t need to adjust any Bluetooth settings, just plug it in and have fun. When using Android Auto you’ll be able to answer calls just like with a Bluetooth hands-free connection. For Screen Mirroring you’ll need to use the Android Autolink app.
It's also possible to use Android Auto wirelessly with any of the following phones:
|Phone Make and Model||Android Version|
|Pixel or Pixel XL||Android 8.0 or higher|
|Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL||Android 8.0 or higher|
|Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL||Android 8.0 or higher|
|Pixel 4 or Pixel 4 XL||Android 10.0 or higher|
|Nexus 5X or 6P||Android 8.0 or higher|
|Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+||Android 9.0 or higher|
|Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9+||Android 9.0 or higher|
|Samsung Galaxy S10 or S10+||Android 9.0 or higher|
|Samsung Note 8, Note 9 and Note 10||Android 9.0 or higher|
2. USB port for multimedia
The USB port can also be used for playing videos and music files on your iDrive Screen from a USB thumb drive.
3. Full-Screen Mode
Android Auto MMI Prime lets you use your favorite Android Auto apps on the original BMW display in full-screen. The retrofit's 1280x480 resolution for big screens and 800x480 resolution for small screens look just great on all screen sizes.
The Full-Screen mode also includes a Screen Mirroring option, which lets you cast the screen of your mobile device onto the BMW’s display, and stream audio through the car speakers with the help of the Android Autolink app.
Please note that mirroring of some apps or content using the Screen Mirroring feature may be blocked due to the copyright-holder's DRM. BimmerTech is not responsible for the continued compatibility of any third-party apps with Android Auto MMI Prime.
4. Controlled with iDrive and steering wheel buttons
To navigate the Android Auto apps, you can use Google Assistant (with a press of the voice command button), the iDrive controller or even the steering wheel buttons including the roller button.
5. Supports CarPlay for iPhones
The kit contains a Multimedia Interface (MMI) — a module that also adds CarPlay to your BMW. So if you have family members or friends with iPhones, connecting their devices will be a breeze too!
6. Ready for integrating Front and Rear View Cameras
The MMI module makes it easy to add a front and reversing cameras to your order for a much lower price. The front view camera can be activated by holding the Option button for 2 seconds. To exit the camera mode, just press Back. It can also be set up to appear automatically on the screen for up to 20 seconds when the gear is shifted from Reverse to Drive.
7. High quality audio with an equalizer
The audio output circuit in the Android Auto MMI Prime has been specifically selected to squeeze all the quality we can out of the iDrive AUX input, providing great audio quality for music, streaming and calls.
The MMI also has a built-in 8-band equalizer. It is a great feature for adjusting the sound in your BMW especially if you don't have a multi-band Equalizer in your iDrive system.
The Android Auto MMI Prime retrofit requires the phone to be connected to the MMI’s USB port, unless using one of the phones listed above.
- Provides audio playback through your BMW's AUX port
- In case you don’t have an AUX port, we can code your car to enable the input.
- BimmerTech is not able to verify whether your phone is compatible with the Android Auto app. It is strongly advised to confirm compatibility before purchase. According to Android Auto you can use the app with an Android phone running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and up with a data plan. For best performance, the Android Auto team recommends Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) and up. You can check your phone’s software version by looking at the About Device section under Settings.
- If the Android Auto app isn’t available in your Google Play account due to the regional limitations, you can download the .apk file from an alternative source. Please note that Google does not take responsibility for any damage to your phone or loss of data that may result from using unknown apps.

We are typically very quick and have a 24-48 hour turnaround time. Transit time depends on your order and which warehouse we are shipping from, but typical transit times are between 5-7 business days from one side of the US to the other.
Majority of the items we offer do ship free to the lower contiguous 48 states. States that require plane or boat to reach (such as Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, etc) do NOT qualify for free shipping. Please contact us to inquire about international shipping costs. During checkout, you will know which items ship free and which have shipping costs associated with them. In general, larger/heavier items will have additional shipping costs (body kits, wheels/rims, etc)
Even though everything can be shipped internationally, sometimes the cost is simply just too high and doesn't make sense to do so. We're here to make sure you have a great shopping experience, so if you have a product(s) you want to inquire about, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes, we do price match reputable competitors in the marketplace. If you find a product cheaper elsewhere, please email us the (1) link of the product from our website and (2) the link to the competitor site. We will make an assessment on our end if we are able to price match or not and respond to you via email.
Typically you have 14 days to return a product you purchase when you change your mind. Damaged and improperly installed products are NOT eligible for returns. Shipping fees may be assessed and not refunded based on criteria as well as restocking fees. Please see our FAQ page for more details.
Unfortunate Kies Motorsports no longer does customer installs (with the exception of crank hubs - we still do thos inhouse). Our HQ is solely reserved for filming, office space, and shipping/receiving.
