Now available - Apple CarPlay retrofit - ID5/6

Post by BRDiagnostics » Wed Aug 23, 2017 2:28 pm

I can now offer Apple carplay as a retrofit for all BMW's with factory fitted NBT EVO iDrive 5 or 6 that don't have the ability to buy Carplay from the online store.

Cost is £250 and will require either travelling to me in Tyneside or a small remote coding session.

Please email me for more details: enquiries@brdiagnostics.co.uk

This is not available for cars with earlier versions of idrive or non-pro nav systems.

Thanks

Hi, I’m just trying to get my head around some of this, my car is a Jan build M140i with pro nav but I didn’t spec CarPlay and I’m regretting it a bit, so will this have NBT/NBT EVO (I don’t actually know what NBT is at the moment ha ha) I have been on the connected drive store it says Apple CarPlay is unavailable for my car. Does this seem right?
Cheers

Yes, you will need to have it retrofitted as well as a new Wi-Fi antenna

Thanks, what is NBT and NBT EVO? Also where have I gotten confused, I thought for CarPlay idrive 5 and pro nav was needed which I have?

Thanks again

NBT and NBT EVO are the idrive systems, they run different versions of firmware.

Basically you need to have the tile menu system as a prerequisite for carplay.

Is what you mean by tile? Image
(Not my picture)

If it’s any consolation my car has over the air map updates included until 2020.. I read somewhere that only EVO allows this?

That’s what I have so do I still need a WiFi antenna? Or is it just coding?

Yes, you will need the antenna - they are included in the price of the retrofit.
