After driving cars that offered USB only CarPlay I can say that wiress is far superior. It's a hassle having to plug/unplug your car every time you get in and out of the car. Why on earth would you prefer wired?
Some believe that wired connection sounds much better than wireless one, i am the one amongst them.

Placebo effect

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.
My guess is you're listening through the BMW iDrive BT interface not Apple CarPlay.

I don't think you understand what a gimmick is. It and Android Auto work very well for what they are which is a universal interface for drivers of all automotive brands. There's a reason pretty well every new car has compatibility these days and it's because most factory infotainment systems are borderline unusable. BMW drivers are a little spoiled by iDrive as most systems are not nearly as good;

Full screen carplay

Guys, i got my car and the half screen carplay annoyed me since the get go. I was looking for a solution to code the vehicle in order to have a full screen carplay and i bumped into bimmertech. they asked me 199$ to code the vehicle but ioit was alittle bit out of mind. so i kept looking and i found a service Uk based and i got the coding for jus 54 which is much better than 199$.

ths is the link
https://************************/pro...lay-activation

i had to buy a cable but it usa super chaep on amazon and i used a usb-c to rj45 adapter

https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B07...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

just in case someone is bothered by the hal screen carplay here is a solution

Good question because I should hopefully be getting mIne in the next few weeks and this will definitely be one of the first "mods" I do.

My guess is that ID6 will remain with the F87 until end of production
That's my guess too. Pretty sure the 2020 is ID6.

ID7 looks to be what the newer 3 series have

OG F87 M2 - CarPlay Purchase Options (AUDM)

Hi all,

My car was a Oct 2016 build, Australian version.

As a DCT version, it has pretty much all options ticked as default except heated steering wheel and CarPlay. Recently I want to give CarPlay ago (A$1/m trial available), found there is an option to enable CarPlay (CarPlay prep?) indefinitely (yeah!)

Does this mean the NBT Evo has built-in CarPlay capability, it's just not activated/enabled? If so, is there any cheaper option (3rd party, e.g. BimmerTech) to enable the capability (which does not expire, hate CarPlay as subscription).

NOTE: OS is still iDrive 5 (should be able to run iDrive 6 lite - no touchscreen).

TIA

Yes, the NBT should have come prepped. Run your VIN and you may be able to see that.

Your link won't work as it's probably a banned site on here

Going wait to confirm new changes before spending money on a coding change that may or may not be needed. Very interesting to see though

Perhaps BMW will have a software update for us before iOS 13?! 🤞🏽

I prefer split screen currently so I can view Waze/Music at the same time...this may solve that problem

Still looking for a remote (or close to Raleigh, NC) solution to get my IDrive updated to a version that will support full screen. I am currently running 'K'.

Any suggestions?

Should be fall w/the new iPhones. Beta is out but may want to stay away from first couple of drops.

Is there an official page with info on how to obtain the USB upgrade package for full screen CarPlay? The previously linked Facebook page doesn't mention anything. My car has the NBTEvo_O18184I software.

What is the difference in various versions of the NBT iDrive firmware? Does one gain any performance/stability/features with newer revisions and is this something that the dealer has to do?

Thanks in advance!
