To install the wireless smartphone mirroring system, you need a video interface (HD-LINK) and a Wi-Fi receiver (APCAST). The interface model compatible with the 2015 BMW 740i is IW06B-N23.
The interface is connected to the head unit. so, I remove the head unit for installation.
This is the IW06B-N23 interface. It outputs the digital signals of the smartphone directly to the car without conversion. Therefore, there is no degradation in picture quality.
I connect AUX to output the sound of the mirroring through the car’s speaker.
The mirroring sound is output to the speaker through the car’s earphone port.
After I complete the installation, I test it.
The HDMI video signal is being detected.
