You don't believe that BMW made a random justification to make some money?

People lease BMWs. Is that a fair statement or not?
Those that lease will pay less in 3 years with a sub vs flat $300. Is that correct or not?

I get it, you want it for free and it's BS. Yeah me too, but $80 is a small amount of money in the grand scheme of things. It's $800 over 10 years. Most of us here won't DD this car for 10 years. If it's stored away forever, why bother with CarPlay?

Let's just hug it out

I kind of like having my fuel range remain split screen on the right so I can always glance at it quickly. With iOS13 though, you can get a lot more information from your phone on the screen at once, so we'll see once it's released.

My understanding is if you ďhackĒ full screen CarPlay on m2ís that donít support it you lose split screen ability.

This is an old thread and I wish I had read it before ordering my M2. I'm not the biggest fan of Car play either, but I mainly use Android phones. I wouldn't say it's the worst $300 spent, but if I had to do it over I probably wouldn't have ordered it, because I never use it.

It may come in handy if I decide to get the next Iphone, but I'm still not sure I will use it because I never used it with my previous Iphone. I've never got fully into the Apple ecosystem as some, so it's not comfortable for me to use.

When I had my Focus RS I used Android auto, but mainly for Google music. That's actually the only thing I used it for. Android Auto is being updated soon also.

I'm not actually a fan of either system that much.

I love it. Yes sometimes it doesnít get a name correct whom I want to call or dictate a text. But thatís rare for me.

I believe this is unique to the person given how easily Siri understands your voice / accent

IMHO, Siri is nowhere near as accurate as Google assistant. I hear my friends repeating things over and over to get Siri to understand. My Google assistant rarely gets it wrong. The Google maps integration is superior with the assistant as well.

Strange...

I didn't spec it back in 2017 as it seemed pointless (although, address input for satnav is pretty irritating on the iDrive).

Had it on two hire rental cars last week and it was both pain-free and actually useful.

Plus, it seems i can now add it to the car for very little?

No all my coding was still intact cluster and taillights as well as all my other stuff. I used BimmerTech this time around they did it all remotely.
