Looking for an upgrade that will let you use your iPhone apps on the factory dashboard display? Our CarPlay MMI is an ideal aftermarket retrofit to do just that.
This upgrade will let you benefit from Apple Maps, Spotify, Siri and other applications on the iDrive screen without actually using the phone. It comes with a USB cable that has a socket at its end. Apart from connecting the device to the iDrive system and charging your iPhone, you can use it to play videos from a USB thumb drive! It is advised, though, to use an original Apple cable for better transmission quality. Please note that if you want to use such features like Siri and Hands-Free calling, your iPhone can't be connected to your BMW via Bluetooth, but only through the cable. Otherwise, those features will not work.
CarPlay MMI gives you the chance to play music through the BMW stereo system with the help of the AUX input. This ensures good audio playback quality. In case you don’t have an AUX port, we can code your car to enable the input.
Our BimmerTech original CarPlay also uses the factory car microphone for Siri Voice commands. This means that you can access your iTunes library, learn the latest news or send texts hands-free. For this feature to work, your BMW has to have Bluetooth or Voice Control.
The kit contains a Multimedia Interface (MMI)—an original BimmerTech module that makes it easy to add a Rear View Camera to your order for a much lower price.
Unlike activating the factory-original Apple CarPlay, our upgrade is compatible with F-series cars that have both newer and older iDrive generations (e.g. ENTRY, NBT, NBT EVO ID4, etc.). To find out whether you car can be retrofitted with CarPlay MMI, please check compatibility.
