Recommended Brake Controller for Use on 2017 BMW X5 with Stealth Hitch


I have a 2017 BMW X5 with a stealth hitch installed with the active harness amd am looking for a brake controller that will work with it. Can you recommend one or more that work with it?


Expert Reply:

For your 2017 BMW X5 I recommend using the Curt Echo # C51180, which will provide you with proportional braking for your trailer and offers you an easy plug and play installation on the 7 way that came with your Stealth Hitch # SH85VR. Using a wireless controller like the Curt Echo keeps you from having to splice into any wiring inside the cabin on your X5, which eliminates the risk of any electrical short damaging your sensitive electronic system. The Curt Echo is controlled with any Bluetooth enabled smart phone running either Android 4.4 or newer, or iOS 8.0 or newer, and is the solution we typically recommend for foreign cars without the brake controller plug and play harness installed in the vehicle.

I've linked a brief review video of this controller for you to check out.
