Very tempted by this!

If my car has not got the WiFi antenna, will CarPlay still work via USB?

Aug 2016 build with pro nav.

Cheers,

Carplay requires the antenna if it's not fitted - it does not work like other cars where the coinnection is via a lightning cable, it's wireless.

Please send me the last 7 digits of your VIN.

thanks

Hi Craig,

I'm in the same position, took a pre-built car a couple of weeks ago but don't have carplay or Enhanced Bluetooth/Wireless Hotspot.

So I believe I need the antenna for carplay - are there some installation instructions/video somewhere? Is it an easy DIY job?
Via Wifi then do youenable wifi hotspot on the phone and then car connects to that for the carplay connection.

If I had enhanced bluetooth and office coded would I be able to access SMS messages via iDrive for both android and apple phones?

Could I have both EBT coded and carplay with the antenna to give me the choice of both and access to SMS for non-apple phones via bluetooth and with apple via carplay. What would this cost (coding EBT, carplay and antenna)?

Hi Rob,

yes those things can be done - there is a new solution for the latest cars and pricing is different because of added complexity.

I will announce via my Facebook page and on here when this is ready - hopefully next week.

thanks

Hello Craig

Can this be done to a G01 with Pro Media? No extended Bluetooth.

Big thanks to Craig.

Ordered CarPlay on Thursday afternoon, received coding Thursday evening, antenna was posted Friday and arrived today (Saturday).

Instructions very clear and spot on, video clips make the antenna installation straightforward.

Whole job was done in about 45 mins.

Does this USB install solution wipe any previous coding or would it just add CarPlay on top?

Cheers
