If your BMW has a touch screen, you can use it to operate Carplay. Your iDrive controller is normally used to navigate your way around CarPlay.
Apple CarPlay looks even better when it takes up the entire screen. Being able to take advantage of your wide screen is amazing as it looks great and usability is a lot better. This can only be activated if your iDrive firmware starts with N, O, P, Q, R, S, U, V, W. CarPlay will take up the entire screen on your BMW. This does disable the split-screen functionality only when using Carplay.If you have software version starting with P, Q, R, S, U, V, W or X you can also get full screen CarPlay.
To Check Software Version – Go to Navigation Maps -> Press Options Button -> Go to Settings -> Go to Position & Version History -> Version Information – We send to see a picture of this screen. Please contact us.
90% of cars have WiFi antenna but some car’s may require additional WiFi antenna to get the full functionality. We can provide this at extra cost. You can also buy this yourself after Carplay activation as WiFi antenna is plug and play.
PLEASE NOTE: No RETURN/REFUNDS because the ACTIVATION CODE IS REGISTERED with your car’s VIN number.
