Product Research


BMW & Mini Radio Replacement Interface Module: The Axxess LC-BMRC-01 interface is designed to allow you to replace the factory radio of select BMW & Mini vehicles with an aftermarket head unit, while retaining many factory features that are normally lost when the factory radio is removed.

Vehicle Compatibility: The Axxess LC-BMRC-01 is compatible with the following 2006-13 BMW & 2007-2015 Mini vehicles (as of 6/10/2016).

Make Model Year
BMW 1-Series 2008-2013
3-Series 2006-2013
M3 2007-2013
Mini Cooper 2007-2015

Amplified & Non-Amplified Systems: The Axxess LC-BMRC-01 can be used in BMW and Mini vehicles with no factory amplifier, or in BMW & Mini vehicles when bypassing the factory amplifier.

Retained Factory Features: The Axxess LC-BMRC-01 retains the following factory features.

  • +12V/10A Accessory Output: In many BMW & Mini vehicles, there is no 12-volt accessory wire in the factory harness, which requires the installer to run an accessory wire to the fuse box or underneath the steering column when installing an aftermarket radio. The LC-BMRC-01 is designed to provide a 12V/10A switched accessory output (red wire).
  • Warning Chimes: The LC-BMRC-01 retains factory warning chimes through onboard speaker in the interface module.
  • Retained Accessory Power (R.A.P.): The ignition power source of some vehicles keeps the radio on until one of the doors is opened. This feature is called the R.A.P. (retained accessory power). The LC-BMRC-01 is designed to retain this feature.

Optional Steering Wheel Control Adapter: The LC-BMRC-01 features a right-angle 3.5mm connector that lets you keep your vehicle's factory steering wheel controls via the optional Axxess Steering Wheel Control Interface (120ASWC1, sold separately), when installing an aftermarket head unit with a steering wheel control input.

Navigation Outputs: In addition, the LC-BMRC-01 provides navigation outputs (VSS, Parking Brake, and Reverse) to help ease the installation process of an aftermarket navigation radio.

You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.
