Installation Instructions:

For BMW X5 E53 with business CD and radio

If your BMW E53 X5 just comes with business CD and car radio(not with a 7" or 4.3" screen in the dash) and non DSP amplifier, installation is very easy, you will not need to modify wires whiling installing. However, if your car has DSP amplifier and without a large screen in the dash, our unit does not support your DSP amplifier, you will need to splice our 8 speaker wires to connect your 8 speaker wires for each car door speaker directly to get sound.

For BMW X5 E53 with a 7" or 4.3" screen in the dashboard

You will need to use our 6m long cable with both 17 round pins and 40 flat pins connectors to connect your 17 pins or 40 pins plug under the trunk. This Android E53 navigation can support your DSP amplifier(if your car has it) with 98% possibilities according to our experience before. You can run the long cable under the carpet along the door frames, remove the back seat to get access to the trunk, and hid the wires behind the cover panel in the trunk. This long cable is optional.

For more information about installation, you can check installation instructions here.

Review by alvaro
I purchased this Android head unit for BMW X5 2005 to replace my first Windows CE unit which was installed 5 years ago. The new Android head unit for X5 looks and works much better than the old unit, screen resolution, touch screen, interface, more functions including wifi, carplay, and new maps. Buetooth streaming works with my Apple phone, GPS is ready to use, you don't need anything extra for that, i'm very happy with it. (Posted on 5/16/2019)

Review by Jason
I bought this to replace my old wince touch screen radio, this Android head unit is the best! Screen resolution is much better and it's more responsive. Now i can connect wi-fi for online music and videos, bluetooth streaming works perfectly but remember to click the A2DP app, well performing unit! (Posted on 10/16/2018)
Review by Jeff K.
I actually do not like the factory UI. it's very old, slow, and kind not modern looking, so i upgraded it with this Android unit. My car has a wide factory screen, so i used long cable which was included in the package, I have got some installation pictures from Sarah so that's not difficult to find the plug under the trunk. Everything looks great, GPS, BT, DVD and Wifi all work well, I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a high quality aftermarket nav unit. (Posted on 7/17/2017)
Review by Alan
Great android radio, installed it in a 2003 BMW X5, awesome features, image quality is better than 800*480 screen, the FM pickup is very good, bluetooth works well for audio sharing from your phone, have already installed igo maps, GPS works well in United States. (Posted on 4/25/2017)
