Can someone answer if the unit has Dab (digital) radio?

Is it a option that can be added?

When is the Group Buy going live?

Hi jaffaz32, D5150/GM5150 both don't support the DAB radio and it cannot be added at the moment.
Do you want to join GB? Yes, we will arrange it very soon. Which unit you interested in GM5150 or D5150?

Interesting news Carlos. The only reason I was going for the GM5150 was for the new oem bmw ui. But if the D5150 now has the updated bmw ui then I will go for that instead. I doubt I will ever use the screen mirroring feature of the GM. Please put me on the D5150 GB list instead. Thanks for the update. How many people do we have on the D5150 list?

I believe the GM version has many other improvements based on feedback from the D5150.
Like the microphone has been improved etc.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong?

I'm in for the GM for the mirroring and because it's a newer model with improvements over its previous model.

Well, you are wrong to some extent, but that's not your fault. Based on that feedback GM5150 has improvements, but only to first gen D5150. Even the "older style UI" D5150 had all those improvements, it's just that those people who give the feedback about GM compare it to first gen D5150, but in the meantime Eonon has been working hard with us all, and made 90+% of improvements based on our feedback.

I can't tell anything about "new UI" D5150 because I don't have one, but latest batch of the "old UI" D5150 that I got, already had:
-longer RCA cables for easier install
-90 degree ipod cable
-better microphone for normal in-car phone conversation without any modification
-orange LED buttons
-stable firmware (virtually no crashes, no launch.exe problem, no BSOD, nothing...)
-soft pad under the unit for better quality install
-rear USB reads memory stick (music, video, etc.)
-rear USB charges Android phone (at least mine does)
-volume "problem" resolved
-V2 CANBUS decoder


Probably none of my bussiness, but I really had to say this, because I got the impression that people buy GM because of all those improvements, while those improvements were already there on D5150. In the meantime, none of the problems GM users are facing were existant on D5150.

Has anyone really made screen mirroring work like it should for longer period of time? Like, real feedback...

Thanks everyone for the feedback. Looks like the new UI is available with the D5150 as per Carlos, so no longer a GM5150 exclusive. Hoping Carlos can bring some clarification to this subject soon.

Hi, can one of the mods please explain why all of my posts have been removed from this thread? I'm not aware of any violation on my part and the questions / comments that I have made regarding quality are relevant so why remove them? Thanks.

Treble settings problem

I have a HK issued D5150 and have no issues with the unit apart from the treble setting not being remembered correctly.

After setting the treble to +5 the sound is clear, but after powering off the unit and returning to the car later. The treble sounds muffled again.

The strange thing is that the treble setting is still at +5 but it sounds like it has been reset to 0. As soon as I change the treble setting down to +4 or up to +6 it becomes clear again.

To be clear, the audio settings remains the same in the memory, but the sound quality is what changes after powering the unit off.

Carlos, I hope this is just a simple software update fix.

So to clarify the only difference is the screen mirroring?

Both basically same units with the same interface.

That's interesting to know, screen mirroring would still be cool but depends on the price difference to be justified.

Hi cobrachop, regarding the treble setting, i have confirmed with the tech, it is normally that the treble cannot be remembered after car powered off. Since it is designed to be customized and does not related to the memory function. Thanks for understanding.

Hi guys, you are right. Now the only difference between GM5150 and D5150 is the screen mirroring function.
GM5150= D5150+ Screen Mirroring Function

Screen mirroring function is very powerful! By using Screen Mirroring Function,
1. You'll get FREE Google Map or IOS Map.
2. You can share videos and photos on your trip easily.
3. You can access Youtube, Pandora, Facebook etc. from your Smart Phone if your phone is 3G connected.
4. It makes your kid stay entertained and happy all the way on the road by playing games in your mobile phone.

Since GM5150 and D5150 both popular, we would arrange group buy for the 2 products soon again. Welcome to join us!

Are you from the UK?

Do you need the relocation bracket?

I've found a place selling for 66.56 brand new delivered. Genuine BMW part.
