Add Apple CarPlay to your BMW 3, 4, 5 series today! Model Years 2011-2016 (F-Series only)
This upgrade will let you benefit from Apple Maps, Google Maps, Waze, Whats App, Spotify, Siri and other applications on the iDrive screen without actually using the phone.
CarPlay MMI comes with a USB cable that has a socket at its end. Apart from connecting the device to the iDrive system and charging your iPhone, you can use it to play videos from a USB thumb drive! It is advised, though, to use an original Apple cable for better transmission quality. Please note that if you want to use such features like Siri, your iPhone can't be connected to your BMW via Bluetooth, but only through the cable. Otherwise, it will not work. Hands-Free Calling will not work if your iPhone is connected to CarPlay and Bluetooth simultaneously.
