Are we talking about replacing the entire head unit (and losing OEM BMW system / menu), or just an addon to enable Android Auto on the stock HU?

Just an add on. Read bimmer tech's web site and saw their add on. Just wondering if anyone did this and how is it working.

When I put in my VIN (2017 M3) I get this:

Android Auto is not compatible with your vehicle.
If you think it might be an error, please email us at info@bimmer-tech.net to check compatibility.
That's unfortunate.

If you have NBTEvo navigation it is possible.
You can write me VIN on pm and I will check it.
