Question G30 CarPlay full screen (without my name taking up the right hand corner)

I have CarPlay on my G30 2017 which works fine, however I donít like the idea of having that going halfway through the screen and having my name on the right where the split screen portion goes to.

Can I use CarPlay in full screen like I see on the 12Ē Merc E Class display?

Thanks in advance.

I have the a perspective map displayed there so I can always keep sight of the navigation even when CarPlay is on...

sweep the touchscreen to the right on the line that separates the big and small screen to have a whole screen of the CarPlay Or push the rotatory idrive switch to the right and it will give you an option of cancelling split screen or order the full screen through the audio aid

OP isn't talking about split screen. He wants the icons to go across full screen without name tag on the right of screen. At the moment, there's no way of avoiding it.

Exactly that, pretty annoying to have that whole area taken by my name, should be way better to see iOS 12 bringing Waze and other navigation apps with full screen support like does iDrive.

I saw some videos where Mercedes apparently takes full advantage of their large 12" wide screen where CarPlay fills the entire screen with icons spread across.

No. You'll need the dealer to do it for you.

Yes, but it requires ISTA+ or E-sys with SDP as well as programming PSU and ICOM or ENET.

Do you know if this is coming to all vehicles built after November or just G30? Iím wondering about the 4 series and x3 primarily.

Nothing is free at dealer. They will only update if fault is found and can get reimbursed for work.

It would be great if you could provide some more details, if possible.

What iDrive versions are supported? What software version is this? Do you have any images of CarPlay running fullscreen on a BMW screen?

Thanks!

No additional details. I have photos, but they are not my own.
