Another recommendation for Kubax86 - He was fantastic to work with (does he sleep?) and got my fullscreen carplay up and running even though I had weird issues on my end that were absolutely not his problem. C'mon you know you want the fullscreen carplay so just message the guy and get it done - It's a big difference.

Mine was done via usb stick

He emails across a link for your file, place it in the root folder on usb then plug into the car.

Runs through the update process, couple of reboots and you're good to go!

fullscreen life

why did I wait 16 months to do this. Big thanks to Kubax86.

Had to find a windows laptop and order an ENET cable from amazon, but worth the hassle for this tweak that took less time, all-in, than boiling an egg. Well worth the tiny amount of money involved.

For those of you who are considering - just ping Kubax86 and his response will be immediate, clear, and simple to follow.

Ok-- Although I'm a Mac guy, I "liberated" an old laptop from my father under the guise of upgrading his OS, cleaning up his HDD, etc.

Which means, I now (temporarily) have a (soon to be) functional Windows machine.

Query: What cable to I need for the full-screen CarPlay upgrade? Inexpensive is good, as it's going to be a "Use Once, Throw In Basement" cable.

Thanks.

I was getting text notifications in CarPlay until one of the recent iOS updates. I would check the settings on your phone.

hi all - I used this site to check if I have a wifi antenna:
https://www.bimmer-tech.net/compatib...ay-activation/

Can anyone confirm if this site and link is accurate in determining whether my car has a wifi antenna? It states for my car "You car is equipped with the original CarPlay hardware from BMW, including a WiFi antenna."

Strange thing is when I looked up my vin on mdecoder.com, under the multimedia section I see that I don't have the CarPlay preparation (6CP) option. So from the mdecoder site results, does this mean I don't have a wifi antenna in my car (contrary to what the above bimmer-tech link says)?

Text messages i get,
Its more about the sound notification that comes with it. I miss alot of speed camera's because there is no sound with the warnings

One data point--

I reached out to Kubax, and he says that the full-screen CarPlay is not exactly compatible w/ BimmerCode.

His recommendation is to do all of your BimmerCode modifications first, THEN do the CarPlay upgrade, otherwise there can be problems.

In what sense... what carplay mods would one make with bimmercode? Those are different modules as far as I know.

Here's everything I know.....

"First use bimmercode then patch. Bimmercode has issues with working after patch and this is strictly their fault."

Something about that doesn't add up... so if one recodes seat belts or say windows, using the carplay full screen updates removed the ability to use bimmercode later?

Seems seem odd there...

The quote I posted above is literally word-for-word from Kubax. I know nothing else-- just adding to The Collective's knowledge pool.

After patch there is issue with using Bimmercode on Headunit only.
This is strictly bimmercode fault as you can use E-Sys to code after patch without any issue. Any other coding will work normally using Bimmercode app.

To code again headunit, you need to restore to OEM, code headunit, then apply patch again.

Thanks

I can confirm exactly this, after I did the carplay USB patch to my headunit I couldn't run BimmerCode on the headunit ECU only. Thankfully kubax gave me everything I needed to patch out the disclaimer in the head unit as well so it wasn't a problem.

Could you explain a bit more? Not sure what you mean by patching the head unit?

In other words, If you do the full-screen CarPlay (and I *just* got the cable to do it in the mail), I'm assuming that you're out of luck on any BimmerCode mods?

TIA.

I think that makes sense... some module "headunit" coding is then limited...

That includes Video in motion, rear camera, ringtone changes, disclaimers, chimes and a few others then.

Sounds like some... only the bimmercode modes related to the headunit... mine already done.
