26 Nov 2016 BMW X4, 1280p High-definition Carplay/Android Auto OEM monitor
2016 BMW X4, 1280 high-resolution carplay system build-up.
The 8.8-inch and 10.2-inch original monitors have a default resolution of 1280 * 480.
If the video interface and the carplay module are used separately, the 800*480 resolution is extended to fit the monitor’s 1280p. However, for the interface-integrated carplay module handled by INDIWORK, the resolution of 1280 * 480 is output without distortion. It displays full-screen constant size rate screen.
However, the Android Auto system scales the resolution of 800 to fit the original monitor.

Unlike Android Auto, carplay fully supports 1,280 resolution.
Therefore, if the SCB-NBT carplay interface is installed on 8.8-inch or 10.2-inch monitors, carplay is output at a constant ratio of digital high resolution.
All controls are possible with the original i-drive. And the original microphone and speaker wires are connected to the Quad Lock connector via jack by jack.
Its one weakness is that the Audio output is possible only through AUX (external input).
