Thanks to the GPS Navigation technologies, now we can drive to everywhere in a quick and safe route. While if there is no navigation function in your car radio or it just only comes with a small size screen, I would suggest you to install an upgraded Android GPS radio system in your car. As we all know, in most of time, not knowing where you’re going can’t be a good thing, you need a navigation system you can trust.
One important thing I should illustrate in advance, here we are not guiding you how to choose and purchase quality touchscreen radio, but we are showing you how to install a new radio from Seicane in a car since for most people, they want to know more information about replacing factory radio by themselves, instead of knowing more radio brands, price differences etc. Let’s check the installation guide following.
- Car model: 2013 2014 2015 2016 BMW 5 Series F10 F11 (NBT System)
- New radio: 25″ HD Touchscreen Android GPS Radio System (Seicane H812)
- Working tools: Plastic pry tools, screwdrivers.
- Safety tip: Power off the car before working on the radio system, ensuring safety.
