CarPlay Question

Hey guys! Just picked up my M2 CS yesterday, purchased through the Military Sales program in Germany. According to the dealer, CarPlay does not work here in Germany due to the car being US Spec. Anyone have recommendations on a code or cable I could buy to make CarPlay work? TIA.

Yeah, it wants ConnectedDrive working to enable it. You should be able to find someone that sells an FSC code to get it working though.

As it is 2020 production car you will definitely need ENET cable for CarPlay activation.

Can you expand on this? US spec cars come coded for it AFAIK, it just can't be activated because ConnectedDrive can't connect or have they done something completely different for the 2020 model year?

The funny thing is, the iDrive 7 cars have it working out of the box without ConnectedDrive working.

Two thumbs up to kubax86 for helping me getting mine done, super helpful. There's seriously no other way to use CarPlay on a widescreen setup like ours.

Did you ever figure out how to get it to work? I have been dealing with the same issue for over a year now. I just learned to live with it but if there's a way to fix it, im all in.
