Bimmertech SmartView HD Apple TV 4 ATV4
BimmerTech SmartView ATV4
iPhone mirroring in BMWs is a feature that doesn’t flail around. With our new SmartView including Apple TV4, you get significantly more than you would expect from a mirroring device – it is the perfect solution for drivers who strive for comfort as well as smart usage of all available possibilities.
First of all, Apple TV4 has its own App Store with thousands of apps and games. That means that, in addition to mirroring your tv favorite iOS apps from your iPhone,
you'll be able to run entertainment apps like Amazon Prime Video and Minecraft straight from the Apple TV system, without
using your phone. Why’s that important? You get better video and audio quality, and your iPhone won’t be tied up – the apps run natively on the system, for snappy, responsive operation.
What is more, Apple TV4 includes Siri – so, now instead of cumbersome typing in the search bar you can tell Siri what you want and confirm your request. There is also an advanced universal search option that enables you to look for content across all the apps that support this function. This means that you will see the results for your “Star Trek” search request in Netflix, Hulu and, say, AMC simultaneously.
Thanks to our Multimedia Interface HD, all these features are available in high definition, with no coding required. Stream videos, surf the web or use your favorite navigation software, all on the iDrive display and through your car’s audio system.
Who is it for?
SmartView ATV4 is created for iOS users who expect the most from a BMW “teaming up” with an iPhone. It is much more versatile, faster and more advanced than the Apple TV of the previous generation SmartView – a dual A8 core processor and an improved remote control with a glass trackpad will give you the ultimate experience of using SmartView ATV4 in your BMW.
Due to limited compatibility with Apple's AirPlay streaming protocol, we do not currently recommend SmartView HD for mirroring Android devices. Android users are instead advised to use the SmartView Flex. Please note that this device does not include Apple TV functionality.
What do I need?
To mirror the screen of your iOS device, you will need to activate its Personal Hotspot. Click here for more information about using Personal Hotspot on Apple devices. Alternatively, you can use a dedicated mobile wireless modem.
How does it work?
SmartView HD ATV4 uses Apple's own AirPlay protocol for wireless video and audio streaming from your iPhone. Audio output from SmartView HD ATV4 is via the iDrive AUX port. To use audio, ensure your iDrive audio mode is set to AUX.
To start mirroring your iPhone, you only need to turn on your Personal Hotspot (or connect to your mobile wireless modem's Wi-Fi network), swipe up on your device screen and select AirPlay. On your first use of SmartView HD ATV4, you will need to connect Apple TV4 to your Personal Hotspot/mobile wireless network through the on-screen settings menu.
BimmerTech accepts no liability for any accidents resulting from the use of SmartView HD ATV4. Please use responsibly!
Please note that Apple has ceased production of the Apple TV 4. We will continue to provide SmartView HD ATV4 using refurbished Apple devices. As refurbished stock, this hardware may show some aesthetic wear, but will still be covered by our warranty as part of the SmartView HD ATV4 kit.
