Negative. That would be a major safety hazard. You can enable video in motion through coding if you have a non-Apple device through the regular BMW interface.

Some big UI changes made to improve the overall experience:
  • Now Playing function now works. (Huge annoyance before)
  • Button UI has been improved across the board. On a touch screen you no longer have to pull over to tap the microscopic button.
  • Split screen view layout has been improved. (Mainly button UI)
  • Responsiveness is now far better.

There are still a lot of issues:
  • WhatsApp call integration is still not working correctly. Presumably a WhatsApp update.
  • Apple Maps crashes often. I don't ever use it normally but I do like the ETA feature. If they ever improved it and added POI's for where I live in the South of Spain, it might actually be useful. However, I prefer to use Waze in the background and use my built-in navigation as that provides me with HUD directions.
  • There is no integration with other map programs in split screen. I'm hoping this will be an option eventually and just require app updates.
  • Apple mentioned deep integration into secondary displays like HUD's. I doubt I'll get it with my BMW ID6, but I'm guessing ID7 users may benefit from this.

In short wireless CarPlay on my BMW looks amazing. Even more so with the split screen software hack, available for ID6 users. (If you want to know more about this, please PM me. I don't sell this and don't claim any commissions, but knowing it's hard to find a reliable coder, I know who to contact).

(Screenshot with The Smiths is the old UI layout for comparison against the new; Deadmau5)

I just answered that. No you cannot do that.

Cool when it works but I'm fine with my current default setup of using iDrive to split carplay on the left (typically Waze) and album art on the right. I think this is preferred to carplay fullscreen because it will show album art automatically from either carplay music or idrive music (FLAC on USB drive, etc).

Definitely welcome the improvements from Apple though. HUD integration would be amazing if they can figure it out.

You're going to want widescreen with iOS 13. It displays the album art on the right while still showing full text information.

Not surprised. It's an international charge. Glad you got it! Easy to work with and I like that I can reapply the coding on the same vehicle if I ever had to - and without having to schedule it with someone.

OEM Navigations have option to do the fullscreen CarPlay only for softwares N, O and P.

My car was just upgraded to NBTevo_Q1849I, anyone know if there is a way how to do it on Q version? Thanks

Not sure. I was waiting to do mine until I upgraded to Q, but got tired of waiting. As far as OEM Navigations is concerned, you can reapply the patch at your own convenience without having to schedule an appointment with a programmer.

Fullscreen works on N or higher. So, with Q, you are all set.

I used OEM Navigations with my Q firmware after contacting them to see if it would work even though it was advertised up to P. It worked fine for me.

As I had CarPlay already from factory I just had to pay the lower fee...

Is anyone running CarPlay and the WiFi hotspot at the same time? I'm waiting on delivery of my M5 and haven't been able to make it work on a loaner 530.
Is it possible?

You can't connect to two wireless networks simultaneously. That has nothing to do with the car, although you do have to choose a profile for your phone in the settings menu (CarPlay. iDrive, etc.).

So, I had mine coded through a different supplier, all in all it looks good and totally worth it, but doesn’t it bother you that it has rounded corners on the right edges while “correct” sharp once’s on the left. It almost makes it look non-genuine. But maybe its just me.

In this pic from current thread there is a photo that looks like mine:
https://cdn.bimmerpost.com/forums/at...1&d=1561489155

I see the image above a few messages up, where it seems “rounded corners” on both left a and the right. Maybe the coding differs supplier to supplier?

That's an iOS thing. All icons and groups have rounded corners.

And you either have widescreen or you don't. The only thing you can change is the icon size and spacing. That's what you have to do to make it widescreen. That's an update to the CarPlay.ini file on the head unit.

I got the full screen car play as well & also ios13, love it.

A few pros as well,

1) when I shortcut to apple maps, previously would revert to apple maps only, but I guess now it reverts to the last maps you've used, which for me is google so thats a huge plus.
2) previously if I would use my phone while on carplay, it would change screens to whatever I was doing on my phone, now it still stays on the screen for carplay and my phone is completely independent.

not sure if these are glitches or not, but I love it.

This is good to know because those are annoying! I have the same annoyances so I'll be happy to upgrade to iOS 13.

I had a few work-arounds that would allow me to get past those annoyances, but I'd have to do it every time so I'm looking forward to this!

First world problems...
