WiFi Antenna Install

Hi there,

I am in need of some advice.

I've recently coded Apple CarPlay and am having issues with connectivity when phone is not in cup-holder as it keeps cutting out and returning to iDrive.

I've purchased a WiFi antenna and an wanting to know if this needs additional coding to enable to antenna or is it plug-and-play?.

Hello,

It is plug and play. No additional coding required.

Works like a treat now! No lag or connectivity issues.

Highly recommend if you’ve coded Apple CarPlay and do not have the WiFi antenna installed from factory.
