The relationship between iDrive and CarPlay is like oil and water. My expectations with CarPlay have been minimized by the disruptive behavior between the two competing systems. At this point, iDrive works and without a hitch. CP regularly quits on me, bogs down on Tidal Music playback and drops calls. My only really reason to use it for me is Tidal, with it's lossless streaming, and Waze both of which are crippled by the inability to coexist with the cars iDrive system.

I assume an iDrive update may solve some of these issues, but evidently that is not an easy option. I also am not sure if an iDrive update if done would wipe out my coding.
