A client from Lake Mead brought his 2012 BMW 328i to Kingpin Car & Marine Audio in search of a more modern source unit. He wanted something that would work well with his smartphone and inquired about adding a backup camera to make it easier to park the car. We showed the client the new Sony XAV-AX100 media receiver.
The XAV-AX100 includes both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for seamless and intuitive smartphone operation while driving. A 6.4-inch touchscreen and rotary volume control make using the radio simple and easy. We installed the radio in the dash of the BMW and connected it to a backup camera from Nav TV.
Nav TV specializes in OEM integration solutions. Part of their offerings include Factory Fit cameras that can be mounted easily in factory locations without the need for extensive customization or fabrication. In the case of this BMW, the camera includes LEDs to illuminate the license plate.
The client was very pleased with our installation. Both the radio and the camera looked like they were installed from the factory.
