BMW X1 Radio Upgrade with Navigation – Android 4.4.4 Or Android 7.1.1

The first generation of BMW X1 is called E84, which produced from year 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 to 2015. Regarding the OEM BMW X1 radio system, many BMW X1 E84 only comes with a storage compartment at top of dashboard, so the car stereo is not so good without a large screen. Thanks for the modern Android system, which enables the car with Android multimedia navigation system, so if you want to upgrade the factory BMW X1 radio, you can consider installing a touch screen BMW X1 aftermarket navigation.
