Wink Selecting CarPlay in 2020 BMW's

Selecting Carplay is kindda cumbersome on older BMW's (especially when you have full screen Nav opened up). Is there an easier way to switch to Carplay in the newer 2020 BMW's?

For me its loaded by default, I also use google maps via carplay instead using built in nav.

I programmed it as a hot button. Very convenient.

How did you program it as a hot button? Can you do the same for me?

On my 2016 750 I had Fullscreen CarPlay coded and it automatically starts playing audio (if I was streaming Apple Music before turning the car off last) but the NAV screen stays the default BMW maps. If I push Media button on iDrive, it takes me to the CarPlay media screen. Then if I push the Nav button on iDrive, then it switches to Apple Maps. Is there any way to get CarPlay maps to automatically be the thing that opens when you start the car? It's not a huge deal, just curious.

2016? I thought that the 2017 MY+ had CarPlay only. Interesting to hear how you did that (or I assume there are instructions on this very forum I am unaware of)?

I used this site to get CarPlay and full screen done. Sent them the VIN and they sent an app that I downloaded and ran on a Windows 10 computer hooked up to my car with Ethernet to ODB connector. Ran the file and maybe 5 minutes later everything worked perfect.

Wow, interesting. Would've done this on November 2015 build 740i if it was possible then.
