Will there be issues with the way the 2019 is moving towards a carplay subscription? I would like to use this to avoid the subscription

USB activation uses fsc as opposed to provisioning though connecteddrive store. As such, no expiration.

Mind expanding on what FSC is? Guessing connecteddrive is attached to the wifi system for BMW to do remote monitoring?

FSC is an activation code. Certain options (eg, Speed Limit Info, Carplay, Navigation, etc) require FSC. Without, coding alone will not enable.

Can you use a usb cable with this coding for CarPlay? Does this usb mode have an iOS requirement like the wireless version does? (9.3 or newer) I recently tried to check CarPlay at my dealer and my 9.0.2 phone wouldn't work obviously.

Official Carplay on BMW does not support usb connection.

Your choice is to update or use alternative hardware.

Anyone had digital cockpit cluster faults once CarPlay is enabled via USB? Since updated, every now and again, I’ve had the digital cluster part of the dash fail to come alive? As in no speedo, clocks etc? Idrive is still alive and working fine, rebooting the idrive makes no difference to the digital cockpit.

Lock car for a while or disconnect battery and it springs back to life? Curious to k kw if this is related to CarPlay or meanly coincidence?

Any help appreciated

Head unit is related to cluster, but my guess is that it is coincidence.

Did you resolve this issue or is your heads up display still faulty?

Not the heads up, I'm talking the actual digital cockpit (speedo, Rev counter, temp gauge etc) or dash as you'd call it. Still an ongoing issue
