It's not in the app store, you'll need to download it from the releases in Github and manually install.

Did you ever get the AA app to work, and do you have a video of the Google maps running?

Does that even work? I dropped the Vin for my 2018 on their android auto retrofit page and it says it's not compatible.

I dropped mine and it said it was compatible.
Took a screenshot though......

There was a minus 10% BF sales voucher, so I opted for 3years guarantee for free (give or take a few $)

edit : expectation management I ordered the Android Auto MMI Prime Retrofit for BMW

Damn, you gave up a 2020 IDrive 6 setup for a aftermarket MMI, you must be infatuated with Android Auto..

Seem kind of backwards to me but to each is own..

yes I have ID5 from my2017. Bimmertech said MMI prime is incompatible with >ID4 but he has 2020, if it's compatible with his car should be compatible with mine as well

Doubtful, says at least IDrive 7 systems. No mention of previous versions.

not coming t the m2s as they all have idrive 6.

Unless they only update the idrive in the future m2s like they did in the 5 series and so on. But it's very unlikely.

Rechecked today via the live chat, it is compatible, and it is the interface only (no replacement screen or something). Will be in hopefully before Christmas, and off course I will share my experiences

Do you guys think we'll be able to upgrade to iDrive 7 in our M2's? I have a 2019 M2.

thank you. I cannot understand why your ID6 is compatible and my ID5 not if it's compatible only with <ID4 ...

Well,
Somebody woke up at their bimmer tech's tech department ?

Pitty that their VIN checker, and the online Chat guy told me "no you're fine, eta in two weeks", 3 weeks later I receive this message:

""
Hi,

Unfortunately our Android Auto MMI kit is not compatible with your vehicle. We will have a kit that’s compatible with it in 2-3 months.
"

So I asked a refund, might order once available, let's see !

Sofar some of you guys were absolutely right!

sorry to be right ...at least they are working on it.

The only option for now seems to be the very expensive unique-ad unit:

https://unique-ad.co.uk/product/wire...era-interface/

they claim it's compatible but they disappeared when I asked for a video of Androidauto working wireless on widescreen bmw... Too much money to risk.

For now I'll stick with my 10.25 android headunit, once rooted and modded it's near perfect.

That price in GBP is less than what I was about to pay for the Bimmertech solution.

from bimmertech, but you can buy the exact same thing for 250$ from china

https://www.android-car-dvd.com/coll...muitimedia-ios

and chinese reseller says it's NOT compatible with our car. So, it's the same unit for sure discussion here https://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1675929
