BMW Android Auto activation is the perfect match for anybody on Android. Bring everything that's great about your phone and the Google ecosystem into your BMW — whether that's using your favorite Android apps on your iDrive display, or tapping into the power of Google Assistant.
With instant access to countless apps, you can choose whether to listen to your favorite music on Spotify or YouTube music, chat with your friends through WhatsApp, or get a helping hand from Google Maps or Waze when navigating through the city. Just wirelessly pair your Android device and you're ready to go!
It couldn't be easier to switch between apps — just use your iDrive's built-in controls, including the iDrive controller, steering wheel buttons, touchscreen (if your BMW features one). Or if you prefer, use your voice to call Google Assistant.
Best of all, it takes no more than 30 minutes of your time to unlock BMW Android Auto in a simple remote coding procedure. There's no need to take your cart apart or do any advanced coding, and it's all done from the comfort of your own home.
BimmerTech's BMW Android Auto activation is compatible with BMWs with the MGU iDrive 7.0 head unit and BMW Live Professional option. Identify your VIN to check compatibility.
Access Phone Apps
OEM BMW Android Auto lets you access a wide range of your phone's navigation, messaging and music apps right on your dashboard display. On top of that, you'll find other driver-focused apps to help you find a parking space, EV charging point and more.
Android Auto Navigation Apps
Enjoy maps that are always accurate, without having to perform period updates or spending any extra money. BMW Android Auto navigation apps include Google Maps, Waze, TomTom and more.
Wherever you are in the world, you're sure to find the safest and fastest route to your destination, and like on your mobile device, your maps will update automatically whenever the road plan changes.
Android Auto Parking & EV Apps
BMW Android Auto isn't only good for finding your way around the city — when it's time to park up, use SpotHero or EasyPark to find a free space. EV drivers can also use apps like ChargePoint to find a nearby charging station.
Android Auto Music Apps
If you can't go anywhere without your favorite Spotify or YouTube Music playlists, or prefer HiFi-quality tracks from Tidal, BMW Android Auto will let you bring all your music from your phone to your car.
For those who prefer the spoken word, you're also free to listen to podcasts and audiobooks from a host of apps, including Stitcher and Audible.
Android Auto Communication Apps
As we all know, texting while driving is a no-go — especially at high speed. But thanks to Google Assistant, with BMW Android Auto you won't need to take your eyes off the road or hands off the wheel to stay in touch. Whether you're sending an SMS, or using WhatsApp or another messaging app, Android Auto couldn't be safer.
Android Auto apps may appear on your BMW screen, but the apps themselves are still being run by your Android device. That means Android Auto isn't a standalone system; it requires a constant connection to your phone.
Fortunately, you won't need any cables cluttering up your interior. Pair your car and phone via Bluetooth, and connect to Android Auto over WiFi.
BMW Android Auto supports devices running current versions of Android; all Google or Samsung devices with Android 10.0 or later, select Samsung devices with Android 9.0, and phones from other brands with at least Android 11.0.
Your device will also need to support 5GHz, which nearly all modern phones do.
Please check your phone supports wireless Android Auto before ordering this activation. Contact your device manufacturer for details.
Easy Control With iDrive
Navigating around the Android Auto menu will be second-nature, because it's no different from the OEM BMW iDrive system. Use the iDrive controller to switch between iDrive and Android Auto interfaces, and navigate apps when in Android Auto mode.
BMWs fitted with a touchscreen allow tapping apps to open, just like on your Android device. When you want to keep your hands on the wheel, you can use the steering wheel buttons, too.
Voice control is also sure to come in handy when you just want to focus on the road. Press the voice-control button on the steering wheel to call up Google Assistant. Ask for directions, dictate messages, turn on a playlist and more.
Enjoy Android Auto In Any Location
The availability of factory activated BMW Android Auto may depend on your location, but BimmerTech can activate it for you wherever you are!
