Rear Seat Entertainment and Security Upgrade

This legendary performance saloon BMW M5 came in for some very high tech security and safety upgrades and for 13.3 Inch rear seat WIFI touchscreen tablets. The high tech security and safety features the team upgraded include the most advanced laser speed trap protection-technology for the BMW M5, called Laser Track Flare. Another driver aid installed is the Target Blu Eye device, this gadget gives you real-time warning for approaching emergency vehicles with a kilometre radius, very impressive. Adding to this plethora of technology is a Thinkware U1000 which features a 4K UHD front-facing camera and an optional 2K QHD rear-facing camera which includes a complete speed camera database. Finally on the tech front to secure against relay attack and key cloning the B&B Audioconcepts team installed a Meta S5 Deadlock system which immobilises and tracks the BMW M5.

The Rear seat entertainment is set off with a pair of 13.3 Inch FHD WIFI enabled touchscreen tablets powered by Android 9.0. The mounting bracket was custom made by B&B Audioconcepts and whilst a bit tricky to fit was worth the outcome. These 13.3 Inch screens have full access to Youtube, Facebook, Instagram, Netflix and all other entertainment services. A bonus feature of these 13.3 Inch screens is they have 7 different LED light options to chose from to match your vehicle interior and in the case of the BMW M5 watch the video below to see if we found the perfect matching LED.

Meta Trak S5 Deadlock

The Meta Deadlock is more than your normal tracking system, it uses the ADR tag to turn off / disarm the immobilser. So for example rather than having 2 different devices such as a tracker then having another immobiliser system installed the Meta system offers both these things in one product. The Metatrak Deadlock is a full anti clone and anti scan immobiliser and tracking system all built into one. When your walking up to the vehicle the immobiliser module and the Metatrak tracking module is looking for the ADR tag to come into the vehicles interior range. If no Tag is detected and the ignition is turned on the tracker will trigger an alert to the Meta head office and in turn they will phone you why the vehicles ignition has been turned on without a tag present ( attempted theft ). The vehicle will also remain immobilised throughout this stage.


If you house is broken into for the vehicles keys and tag you can remotely immobilise your vehicle from starting from the Smartphone app. Meaning you can stop your vehicle from starting no matter if a thief has the keys and tag. You can also add a geo fence to put a virtual garage around the area your vehicle is parked. Meaning even if someone had the Meta tag and original vehicles keys the system will alert you that the vehicle has been moved.

Meta Trak S5 Deadlock combines advanced immobilisation with Meta Trak’s new generation tracking technology, 24/7 control room monitoring and an easy-to-use app. It has been assessed by Thatcham and meets their strictest approval criteria, which means that it’s trusted by your insurance company to offer the very best security.



Target Blu Eye – What is it?

Target Blu Eye is based on TETRA technology, in the UK it is known as the Airwave Network which is widely used for the communication between different emergency/Police vehicles. Target Blu Eye is able to warn you in advance of approaching emergency services, such as Police cars – both marked and unmarked, Police motorbikes, fire engines and ambulances.


Target Blu Eye explained

Target Blu Eye is an in-vehicle device that informs you when there is an emergency vehicle close by – often long before you hearing it approaching emergency/Police vehicle when the sirens are being used.

Using TETRA (Terrestrial Trunked Radio)technology, the Blu Eye alerts the driver there is an emergency vehicle in the area such as Police cars, Police vans, Police bikes, fire engines, ambulances, etc. This is thanks to fact that all emergency/Police vehicles in the UK use TETRA radios as standard. The Target Blu Eye will also warn to both marked and unmarked Police vehicles.

The Target Blu Eye will alert you via a ‘control panel’ installed on your vehicles front console, dashboard, windscreen, etc when there is an emergency vehicle within a kilometre radius, whether they are using their sirens or not. The Target Blue Eye promotes a safer driving attitude and ensures you will not need to make any dangerous maneuvers when an emergency vehicle is nearby.

On screen visual and audible tone alerts you to the type of vehicle within 1km of your vehicle. You can then move safely out of the way knowing you are not obstructing an emergency vehicle. There are two sensitivity modes, these are Highway and City mode.

Highway mode has the longest detection range which is ideal when travelling at high speed on a motorway for example.

City mode reduces the range of detection and is recommended for use of the Target Blu Eye in urban areas. The maximum range is approximately 1 kilometre.

Using this device will improve the safety of your driving in relation to emergency vehicles.


Target Blu Eye Completely Legal

Target Blu Eye is completely legal to use in the as it simple tells you when there is an emergency vehicle close by. It cannot differentiate between police cars, ambulances and fire engines so you will only know there is an emergency vehicle approaching and you will not know the type of vehicle.



The Thinkware U1000 4K Dash Cam is the new Flagship camera from Thinkware. It’s one of the most advanced Dash Cameras currently on the market and is the upgrade from our bestselling DashCam, the Thinkware Q800. The U1000 comes as either a Front Only System or Front & Rear System. It’s twice as powerful as the original Q800!

With a Full 4K Front and QHD Rear camera, the U1000 is able to record pristine quality video that captures the crucial details of any incidents you may encounter while driving. Recording at 30 frames per second without dropping a single frame, you can rely on the U1000 to capture every moment of your commute in high definition – be it an accident or an unexpected hit-and-run.

The U1000 also features ‘Super Night Vision 2.0’, a night image correction feature, and ‘Time Lapse’ that dramatically extends the parked recording hours. This new model will also have a new Energy Saving Parking Mode in conjunction with the Optional Radar Sensor. The Radar System will be available later this year but in principle means that your Dash Cam will detect impacts before they happen and will allow your dashcam to stay asleep longer and therefore meaning parking mode will be extended before cutting out.

Dual Save technology is specially designed to save recorded footage in both the microSD memory card and the built-in internal memory in incident recording, safeguarding against the loss of data in the aftermath of a severe collision. In the event that the memory card is damaged, the Dual Save Technology guarantees a backup copy of the video in the internal memory.

Your smartphone and the U1000 can be connected via the exclusive application ‘THINKWARE DASH CAM Mobile Viewer”.
You can Check, download or delete recorded images, update firmware or update safe driving information on the application.
