The new system is made to replace 6.5-inch legacy screens and is compatible with BMW 1/2/3/4 series models manufactured since 2013, and the new BMW X1.

The new screen is fully integrated with iDrive, BMW’s computer system that controls most secondary vehicular functions. It can also be retrofitted to connect to a rear-view camera, and because it supports BMW’s Park Assist System (PAS), it provides a more expansive view when the driver is in the process of reverse parallel parking. The screen, moreover, features a new NBT EVO user interface, enabling effortless installation and operation.

The display will be available August 10 for $955 through dealer websites and elsewhere, and installation takes about 20 minutes.
