I think best would be to get a non i drive unit and stick with idrive functionality for main screen but if you wnt to use the other deck switch to cd/aux and now you have much faster hardware , newer android, and mhd or whatever you want could even do video out into stock idrive screen for movies or whatever if you want.

Well I got it and I installed I still have I drive capability so I can use both at will ...and with I drive you cannot play movies etc.... mud and other apps are also availible fr android

Honestly only downside is outdated processor which unless gaming who cares and its not like its supporting an lte modem so much less overhead plus like you said having ability to switch back and forth is awesome

Honestly purchase a older or budget android or Windows phone pref one that you can edit apn so you can add dun and then you can have it go off phone data not a tethering plan. Now you have option for like 20 dollar add on or 30 pre paid. Also you could toot and use wifi router the original one which also won't use your data but that is the cheapest route
