Arrow Full screen Carplay

Has anyone with an OG or LCI successfully upgraded to full screen Carplay?

I've seen this thread going in the Competition subforum and others like it elsewhere on the web where you can upgrade your Apple Carplay to full screen by having your iSTA software updated to NBTevo_N, O or P and then having the Carplay ini file modified either through eSys or by a 3rd party. I hear they're charging $100-$200 on average to do it remotely.

To check if you have the correct iSTA update: Go to the map screen, press the options button on the idrive controller, select Navigation Settings > Position and Version > Version Information. If it says NBTevo_N, O or P + some numbers, for example NBTevo_O18153l - then you can get the update.

I'd love to figure out a way to do this without having to pay a 3rd party by using Bimmercode or some other method.

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.

Iím 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.

Does apple car play still require a monthly subscription? I would love to do this, but do not want to pay monthly to have it on a weekend car.

It's a one time fee of $300 to activate it. No monthly recurring fee.

It has been monthly for a while now. The $300 one ended shortly after you and I got our '17s I would say.

Even on the older models like 2017 (mine) the connected drive store no longer offers the one time $300 version.

I would say on iOS 13 with its new split screen this is a must have mod.
