Full Screen CarPlay isn't really coded, it's gained by modding a system file within the NBT and loaded via USB.

Software versions M, N & O can be loaded through USB. P needs additional coding.

Are you sure about that? Usually it's only 3/4 screen. You can use Apple Maps navigation and fill the entire screen?

I've read version M can't do it at all, versions N & O can be done through USB, and the latest version P has to be done through the port because they locked the USB capability. I've also read version P is locking out the ability to perform a back-end flash like MHD or BM3 (on S55's; haven't heard whether it affects N55's yet).

Who's gonna be the OG or LCI guinea pig and find out?

Yep, that's 3/4. The new version fills the screen entirely which is really nice if you use Apple Maps or Wayz navigation.

According to several groups I'm following on FB that offer the upgrade as a service, it can be done on on N, O, P, Q or anything newer.

Im on P and had it done for $80, had to download a programme and enter a code, went smooth and no issues.
Waze and Google Maps look great on full screen

For those that have done this, can you still change it to split screen or will it permanently be set to full screen? When not using maps I want to be able to see other info on the side of the screen (mainly song/artist info).

You have to go to the dealer. You can either try and give them a bogus reason to get them to do it under warranty such as you nav isn’t working properly, or you can pay them to do it.

Once it’s set to full screen you can no longer use CarPlay in split screen. The other (non-CarPlay) will still work in split screen.

I hope this the case. In my former car ('16 M4) I found I could not tolerate listening to music via Bluetooth as the fidelity suffered. It was weird because you could hear could hear the high frequencies drop out intermittently.

There is a big difference in audio quality between CarPlay and Bluetooth unfortunately.. so much that I don’t use CarPlay anymore.

Technically this should not make sense as CarPlay wireless should have more bandwidth. I guess it’s the particular way that BMW implemented it though.

Try switching CarPlay on and off on iDrive, the difference is significant to my ears.

Hello,

Just picked up my 2020 M2C yesterday and found that it has version "Q"

any idea if this will be the same working method as "P"? If so what all is required?

Haven't seen anything regarding Q or a concrete post on what steps to take with "P" so figured I would bump this thread for the new wave of M2C's coming in

I asked the geniuses a little while ago.


Thanks for contacting the BMW Genius Team.

At this time, we do not offer a software update or modification to make Apple CarPlay full screen for vehicles equipped with iDrive 6.0. Apple CarPlay is currently only available for full screen use in iDrive 7.0. We regret any disappointment this may cause.

2016 M2 = iD4/5
2017 M2 = iD5
2018 M2 = iD6
2019 M2C = iD6
2020 M2C = iD6?

My guess is that ID6 will remain with the F87 until end of production
