I and a few others purchased the AVIN unit. I never got around to installing it and sold it to a member here but he reported back he loves it.

Search the forums I wanna say I've seen some DIY's that some members have done this.
I purchased the Avin unit a year or two ago when I did my Bav Sound speaker upgrade. I like the Andriod unit lot, especially the ability to hotspot my phone and run WAZE (or other apps) on the 8.8 inch screen.
The two biggest drawbacks to the Avin unit IMO are:
1) the unit and version of Android cannot be upgraded
2) the bluetooth is terrible (so I use the factory BT instead)

I will likely replace the Avin unit later this year (or whenever Bav Sound releases the new amplifies for our E60s) with something like the Smarty unit which I read can be upgraded.

Apologies for typos... sent from mobile

If you just want to stream music I have a tune2air that works flawlessly on our cars. I’ve trieda bunch of BT devices to stream and this is the best sounding. Streams from your phone via BT. I have one in my 2008 M5 and use it every day I drive it. Sound is excellent and can skip songs from your steering wheel etc. If you have an aux port and USB in your armrest you are good to go. Traded in my other car so I have one for sale. PM me if you’re interested.
