Removing CarPlay

Installed CarPlay via a usb. A couple weeks back, the car went in and the dealer had to do a software update. The update failed because it had issues with “coding / CarPlay”. Is there any way to remove CarPlay and restore the unit back to factory so the dealer can do the update?

I would call BMW assist since it is now free on select vehicles to see if yours qualifies. Once they add it to your vehicle's profile with an FSC code I would imagine they would be able to do the update.

I honestly don't know, because I don't know how it's installed using the USB stick. I would imagine that if you purchased it from BMW that your car would be coded correctly. Not sure.

With that being said, CarPlay cannot be installed over USB on the newer firmware versions.

Not really bothered about having CarPlay anymore. Just need it gone with no trace of it.

Dealer cant tmdo the update because usb activations for Carplay are not oem BMW fsc codes, rather than "cracked".

Contact the person you bought it from or you need to individually flash your HU back to stock with Esys.

Can a repair pack with the oem fsc codes be reinstalled to ring it back to factory or must the hu be flashed AND then the indovidual fsc codes reimported?

I believe you can pull down the original codes for your vehicle using E-sys, but I have absolutely no experience using it.
