Apple CarPlay is a technology developed by Apple Inc. that allows users to integrate their iPhones with compatible vehicles. It provides a simplified and safer way to use certain iPhone features and apps while driving, utilising the car's built-in display and controls.
With Apple CarPlay, users can make phone calls, send and receive text messages, access their contacts, listen to music, use navigation services like Apple Maps, and use other supported apps such as podcasts, audiobooks, and messaging apps. The system also supports Siri, Apple's voice-activated assistant, which allows users to control CarPlay functions and access information hands-free.
Apple CarPlay Activation is compatible with most BMW ID5 / ID6 Professional Media Headunits from 2016.
You will need to confirm your NBTEvo_ software version when purchasing.
To do this, see below.
Navigation -> Options -> Navigation -> Scroll down to Position and Version -> Version Information.
Your car may need a WiFi Antenna for Apple CarPlay to work. Send us an email or message and we can check this for you. We sell WiFi Antennas, see here --> https://bavarian-automotive.co.uk/collections/bmw-carplay/products/bmw-nbt-evo-id5-id6-wifi-antenna
Depending on the software version, your car may only allow split-screen CarPlay - see below for details.
We offer USB Activation and DIY (ENET Cable) Activation, depending on the software version - see above.
This method of coding is performed by inserting a USB drive into the armrest USB port. We will email you a coding file, which needs to be transferred onto a USB drive. This process can take up to 15 minutes
ENET Cable Activation
For software versions after NBTEvo_O, Apple CarPlay will need to be activated via cable (We sell these cables - see below). We will send a link to our activation software, enter in the code and CarPlay will be unlocked.
For this, you will need an OBD to ENET cable, which plugs into the OBD port of your BMW and the ethernet port on your Windows laptop (this software will not work with Mac computers).
**All codes will be sent within 24 hours (Monday to Saturday). The activation code is NON REFUNDABLE, as it is coded to the VIN**
