The carplay interface ‘SCB-NBT’ connect to original head unit via original quad-lock cable. and the LVDS cable of interface is connected to the back of the monitor, allowing you to switch between factory mode and carplay HDMI screens.
We took about an hour to remove the parts, connect the connectors, and reassemble the parts.
The carplay system has the same resolution of 1280*480 as the original monitor of the BMW F30. Also, it has correct aspect ratio, so a distortion-free screen is displayed.
You can use all apps supported by the CarPlay platform, and ‘SIRI’ voice recognition function also.
Android Auto has a lower performance than CarPlay. The resolution is 800*480, and you need to download the ‘Android Auto’ app first. and some settings are required, cable extension is not possible, and you must use a genuine cable.
