BimmerTech SmartView HD ATV3

Enjoy the power of Apple TV with the convenience of iDrive. SmartView HD adds Apple TV 3 functionality to the factory iDrive system, allowing you to enjoy all the features of Apple TV in the comfort of your car. In addition to offering your favorite Apple TV apps, such as Netflix or Hulu, Apple’s AirPlay technology lets you mirror the screen of your iOS device on your iDrive display.

Thanks to our Multimedia Interface HD, all these features are available in high definsmartition[1], with no coding required. Stream videos, surf the web or use your favorite navigation software[2], all on the iDrive display and through your car’s audio system.

Who is it for?

SmartView HD ATV3 is perfect for Apple TV and iPhone users looking to make the most of the Apple ecosystem. It is built around Apple's own hardware and protocols to ensure complete compatibility with your iPhone.

Due to limited compatibility with Apple's AirPlay streaming protocol, we do not currently recommend SmartView HD ATV3 for mirroring Android devices. Android users are instead advised to use SmartView HD Flex. Please note that this device does not include Apple TV functionality.

To mirror the screen of your iOS device, you will need to activate its Personal Hotspot. Click here for more information about using Personal Hotspot on Apple devices. Alternatively, you can use a dedicated mobile wireless modem.

How does it work?

SmartView HD ATV3 uses Apple's own AirPlay protocol for wireless video and audio streaming from your iPhone. Audio output from SmartView HD ATV3 is via the iDrive AUX port. To use audio, ensure your iDrive audio mode is set to AUX.

To start mirroring your iPhone, you only need to turn on your Personal Hotspot (or connect to your mobile wireless modem's Wi-Fi network), swipe up on your device screen and select AirPlay. On your first use of SmartView HD ATV3, you will need to connect Apple TV to your Personal Hotspot/mobile wireless network through the on-screen settings menu.

BimmerTech accepts no liability for any accidents resulting from the use of SmartView HD ATV3. Please use responsibly!
