F20 Carplay?

Post by BennosBimmer »

It is possible to install Carplay installed to a 2014 M135i? Spotted this and wondering if it's worth going for - my previous car had Carplay and I deeply miss it. This seems excessively expensive however.

Any other suggestions would be great. Cheers.

I put this into my car - an M135i LCI with Pro Nav - it works reasonably well with a few issues:

- Sometimes it doesn't switch properly between Pro Nav and Carplay (you do this by pressing and holding back for 3 seconds)
- You don't always get the reverse camera to work when going into reverse (it seems to do it about half the time)
- Its prone to random crashes about once a week and it sometimes crashes the whole Pro Nav system.

When it works it's great. Would I spend £500 on it knowing what I know - maybe.

Thats not worth £500. You can buy it for less than half on aliexpress.

I’ve been thinking about how much I’d like to add CarPlay to my NBT system....

What’s the most recommended on here? And are the modules for retrofit reliable?
