    Dynavin N7 Alternative

    Don't know if this has been discussed before since I am a day late (maybe more) and several bucks short......

    Is there an alternative to the Dynavin that has the same capabilities, cheaper and aesthetics that has the BMW OEM look? The N7 has the closest of aesthetics to the real thing. The ongoing price for a N7 is at $699. I think that is way more that what I could imagine. It is more in the Arm and a Leg territory.

    Thanks.

    Looks good. I know these are Chinese manufacture. But.....Unfortunately not enough hands on real and actual/genuine reviews on E46f or others and on installation difficulties, glitches and tricks.

    Unknown brand or quality control workmanship. No YouTube installation? Insufficient instructions installations....As per reviews on their website. No support contacts by phone if glitches happen.

    Also found this. But is in the range but a little lesss of the Dynavin

    Avin Avant 4 is now being offered with the new PX6 chipset. Big upgrade over all the PX5 trash that we've been using for years now.

    This is big; Are there any performance reviews? That with Apple Carplay would be killer and would bring the ZHP square into 2020

    You can def run carplay on it. I haven't looked into it too much - just started browsing some threads recently as my px5 screen is flickering.

    Xtrons seems to have upgraded their line of head units as well recently to Android 9.0 (I have an older unit I quite like):
