Apple Car Play add on in non connected drive supported country

Is it possible to buy Apple Car Play without BMW sending the code to the car? I live in a country (Philippines) where Connected Drive is not yet supported by BMW hence the car cannot receive the activation code through the internet connection built in the car.

Yes, third parties can generate non-OEM fsc codes so you can have Carplay.

I am unsure what is blocking it from displaying. If just not coded, then yes it would work. There are two ways to get it working, provisioned through ConnectedDrive and through patched FSC set.

Hey, Almaretto , new guy here. I'd like to add CarPlay as well, similar to OP. My question regarding non-OEM FSC codes is: would they show up during a waranty check or PuMA case and cause problems? And if so, can they be 'removed' prior to submitting such a request and added back afterwards? Thanks!

They will not cause problems with being able to update. But you will need to reapply after service.

Thanks for the quick reply. Would reapplying require generating a new code (and a new payment), or could I just use the same one?

Hi Almaretto

I have a BMW X2 (F39) - Japan Spec, and the car is in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

ConnectedDrive is not supported here and love to have Apple Car Play setup instead. Can you please assist?

Thanks in advance,
