the wireless station? the wireless station is a hotspot for your car... that tethers your phone. That you then hook up to? Stop using the wireless station and just try it alone. I have zero issues on my iPhone X. Same on my 7plus

BMW ConnectedDrive Apple CarPlay Overseas

Tried finding some info online regarding activation of Apple CarPlay while in Germany. I have a US Spec M2 purchased via MSP and Apple CarPlay is not available. I've heard that it can be coded in, but it costs a bit more than purchasing thru BMW.

Anyone overseas have experience getting registered or getting it to work before shipping their vehicle back to the US?

I just got my 2018 M2 last week while stationed in South Korea, and I have the same issue. I spoke with the dealer and some other friends who have purchased through Military Sales, BMW Connected Drive/Apps & navigation aren’t available until you get the car back stateside and have it serviced/setup at a dealership.

Same: it was coded with my ED, but was activated / installed after it arrived at port in the USA. The window sticker also wasn’t given until after arriving port.

I meant the wireless charger in the center console.

Also, I can connect to carplay via bluetooth or via a cable, and it still has the same problem. I told the dealership about it, and they said they've had lots of similar complaints and they've submitted them to the BMW mothership.

Carplay does not support USB audio in my 2018. It only streams via bluetooth. My dealer actually encouraged me to call BMW USA and request a refund.

Amazon Music App and Carplay

Does anyone know how to fix this issue? When using the Amazon Music app with Carplay, you Amzn app locks you out of controls on your phone. It has this weird screen that takes away any action you want to do, forcing you to go to the iDrive control. but in the iDrive control, sometimes it just goes in circles not letting you go to say your favorite stations. To fix it, you have to exit out of your amzn app, reopen it and get to the station you want quickly before iDrive kicks back in and take over your phone again. This only happens in the BMW where Carplay connects over Wifi. In another car where it's connected over USB, this doesn't happen. This also does not happen on the Apple native music app, just the Amzn music app.

I can get mine to play, it's just really finicky. The app is compatible with Carplay, it used to not be. I wish BMW would let you choose between USB connection vs WIFI, hardwired is always more stable.

CarPlay sucks in this car. Shut mine off within a day. And you don't need it for Amazon music. Just sayin

No in the App Store or inside the app itself, there should be a bug report feature.

I want to at least be able to change music from my Amazon app on my phone while stopped at a stop light or taking off in the parking lot.

Or if youíre going to lock me out of the app on the phone, allow me to control it from my car through the iDrive interface. If nothing works then there is a tech failure.
