OpenAutoPro OAP is an extra software running on the pi to connect android smartphones via android auto. It also has some more features.

I use it since v1.0 and there is no problem with pibus, as pibus itself just communicates with the ibus.

It is like using kodi.
So you can control the menus via the iBUS?

I think you need an android smartphone in order to operate with the multimedia and not sure about ios devices but probably it should work the same. I consider BMW's old cars' multimedia very poor as it is really hard to connect to. I even designed a new prototype circuit board for my BMW and have created my own multimedia system from a lot of different parts. Hope it will last long for me and I will not have any issues with it. Anyway, I think people that are not familiar with engineering should probably buy new multimedia that is already done and you will just need to insert it.
