My first car is a 2009 BMW Mini Cooper, which was a gift from my father, and I really love it so much. While the only thing that made me unsatisfied was that its dashboard radio system function is too less and the operation is not smart enough. After thinking about some time, I decided to purchase an aftermarket car radio GPS navigation system for modification.
My friend recommended me to a radio navigation brand that is currently popular in the market, it’s called Seicane. He emphasized that the Seicane car radio GPS navigation systems are diverse in styles, high in quality, and affordable. Two weeks ago, I ordered the Seicane products and installed it myself. Here, I want to share with you the installation process and using experience.
First of all, there are some tips before the installation,
- Prepare the needed tools, mainly include screwdriver and pry board.
- Ensure that the disassembly and assembly process is in a power-off state
- Be careful not to confuse the disassembly and assembly accessories, and keep them complete
