Xcarlink BMW iDrive (CIC) Multimedia Video Interface with Digital Radio & Digital TV control and PIP.

The new Xcarlink v4 Multimedia Video Interface takes multimedia integration to the next level by offering a range of additional features. Not only can you connect any video source to your original factory fitted display (such as DVD player, TV Tuner, iPod Video, games console etc) ; it also allows you to control Digital TV and/or Digital Radio (DAB) via the original iDrive controller for a fully integrated solution.

It features a dedicated rear camera input with parking guidelines that automatically displays on your screen when the car is in reverse.

The interface also supports the Picture in Picture (PIP) function, which allows the original PDC and rear camera can be viewed on the screen at the same time. The PIP also allows the external video source to be displayed together with the original display, for example a split screen showing both OEM Navigation with Digital TV or DAB.

The interface does not replace your existing system but simply offers perfect integration to maintain your OEM appearance.
