Our take on the Axxess BMRC-01 Factory Integration Adapter

by Jon Paulette

This BMRC-01 radio replacement interface from Axxess lets you replace the factory radio in select 2007-up Mini and 2008-up BMW vehicles without an amplified system. This interface allows you to connect the new radio to the factory wiring, while maintaining your factory warning chimes — an important safety feature. Warranty: 1 year.

Features

Overview: The AXXESS BMRC-01 interface is designed to allow you to replace the OEM radio with an aftermarket head unit in non-amplified BMW/Mini vehicles or BMW/Mini vehicles that have the OEM amplifier bypassed. The BMRC-01 will retain all warning chimes (via built-in speaker) which are lost when the OEM radio is removed. It also provides a 10A/12V switched accessory wire for proper radio operation, and the R.A.P. (Retained Accessory Power) feature will be retained. In addition, the BMRC-01 provides navigation outputs (VSS, Parking Brake, and Reverse) to help ease the installation process.

Compatibility: The Axxess BMRC-01 is compatible with the following 2006-up BMW & Mini vehicles (as of 9/4/2012).

Easy and it works

Written By Ryno, KCMO on Monday, February 10, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This let me retain my warning chimes in my bimmer and they actually sound better as they come from a new small speaker, not through the stereo speakers as before. I wired it up to my radio on my desk with the steering wheel control adapter and then wired into the vehicle. It was super easy and it all works great.

1 question already asked

Does this kit also retain the stock radio controls on the steering wheel ? [ Franco  May 07, 2014 ]
1 answer
  • This harness does not make the connections to retail steering wheel controls. The ability to retain steering wheel controls with aftermarket receivers will be determined by the receiver you are using and the vehicle you have. For full information on this type of integration (including the parts you will need) please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Jeff Staff  May 07, 2014 ]
