Carplay will work on any IDrive 5 or newer system. If car does not have Wifi antenna, you will want to add.

I think my car does have an antenna. Are you offering any service to activate carplay?

Almaretto, I'd appreciate it if you could reach out to me as well. Currently own a 2019 (June) which doesn't have CarPlay, or the ability to subscribe to said service. I'd like to be able to discuss my options.

You can check if your car has WiFi antenna by decoding VIN and looking for certain options like:
- WiFi Hotspot
- Wireless Charging
- Apple CarPlay preparation
- Enhanced Telephony

I have just activated the 1 month CarPlay trial on my 2017 G30 but obviously it’s not full screen. How can I get this done, firmware on Idrive is R and heard this might cause issues.

Itís not an issue.
You would need ENET cable for Full screen activation.

I used fsc.carplay on ebay and it worked flawlessly. There are some models of the nav that require an enet and some that require a thumb drive. Mine was one of the thumb drive versions so all I had to do was move the file over to a freshly formatted thumb drive, plug it into the armrest usb port for 30 sec then restart my NAV 3x. Boom Carplay, Full Screen, Screen Mirroring and video in motion.

Are you able to activate lifetime CarPlay for a 2019 X5?

Yesterday I bought a video in motion and carplay unlock, .BIN file. After trying several times to flash it into the car without success I've contacted the seller telling them that I couldn't make it work. Then they asked me the map version and then informed me that software off my car was recently updated by dealer and that software donít support USB, need to load via ENET Cable.

Is there any way to install the BIN file through USB or will I really need to install it with a pc software?

Thanks

You really need to use PC with ENET cable. Seller doesnít lie

Is the Carplay FSC number 143? I have VO coded 6AC and have generated the fsc file with HU Tool 2.6 but since my car has 07-19 can it still work and can fsc be installed with esys, is so how do I do it without deleting all fsc and keep the option that the delaer can do a full update later on.
