Check compatibility with your BMW!



Apple's CarPlay lets you connect an iPhone to your BMW and use iOS apps on the factory dashboard display. Use Apple Maps for navigation, access your iTunes library or send texts via voice command.

And now with iOS 12, you can take advantage of Google Maps and Waze while navigating through the city. You'll be able to use the best features from both apps like getting the quickest rerouting that will save your time (Waze) or using the navigation even if you're offline (Google Maps).

Switch between the iDrive and CarPlay interfaces effortlessly, and operate both with the iDrive controller.

Please note that some BMWs are compatible with Apple CarPlay full-screen mode. Type in your VIN here to find out whether it’s available for your car. If you purchase Apple CarPlay, the full-screen mode will be included for free in compatible vehicles.

CarPlay functionality is offered from the factory in many of the latest BMWs. Now, you can activate CarPlay in your existing vehicle thanks to our quick and easy USB process * — we'll send you an activation file to save to a USB stick, and you'll only need to plug it into your BMW to unlock CarPlay.

Requires an NBT Evo ID5/ID6 head unit and WiFi antenna. Click here to check compatibility with your vehicle.

In case your car isn't equipped with the WiFi antenna, add it to your order in the corresponding field above.

*- Please note that Chinese- and Japanese-spec BMWs are not compatible with USB activation. But we can activate Apple Carplay through a cable during a coding session with our technician. For that you will need a coding cable and a Windows laptop.
