Bluetooth audio doesn't work after mirroring is enabled unless you play around with the settings on the phone ( samsung s6 ). I would be okay with audio over miracast but the quality is pretty poor compared to bluetooth
So how did you feed audio from cell phone to head unit in the end?

1. Did you connect over Bluetooth? Does bluetooth connection work when screen mirroring over Wifi is activated (I have a Galaxy S6 too)?
2. Did you connect an RCA to 3.5mm stereo plug to armrest's AUX IN jack?
3. Did you connect the red/white RCA connectors from the mirroring device to multimedia adapter's AUDIO IN harness?

I would prefer to have audio streamed IN/OUT the cell phone through bluetooth. That way I can still use the car's built in microphone array when I place a phone call.

What's the actual quality of the sound over miracast?
What is the codec used and its bitrate?

Is it viable to stream both music and video without significant loss of quality? (Lossless streaming)

Is the digital stream being decoded by the box, or by CiC/NBT unit?

Thanks,

Any updates on this subject from Bimmertech? I find their web site a little difficult to follow. If I do not have the technology package and just want to mirror my iPhone onto the screen, what do I need to buy? In other words, can I mirror without buying the rearview camera kit?

You need Smartview and Multimedia interface.

Thank you. I see "multi media interface" in the drop down menu. But I don't see anything that describes what it is or how to install it. Are installation instructions for Smartview and Multimedia Interface available for review?

I'm thinking of purchasing the SmartView and the MMI to place in my BMW 2008 328i E92, however I wanted to know if anyone has compared any of the alternatives, ie. Naviks or others such as the Mirabox/Crux wireless interface, etc.

So in order to connect to this thing your phone has to connect to the box's own wifi right? Otherwise how does it mirror?

If you're connected to this box's wifi network, how do you get internet connection? CAn you in theory stream a netflix video over the 3G network while streaming it to this wifi network?
