Car Play

I have a 2015 740 Li.
I'm interested in being able to add Apple Carplay either wired or wireless.
Any options?

I think there is an alternative. You can have CarPlay in your f01, but without touch screen.

I bit the bullet and ordered this:


€ 385,76 16% Off | Joyeauto WIFI Wireless Apple Carplay for BMW CIC 6.5 8.8 10.25 inch 1 3 5 6 7 series X1 X3 X5 X6 2009-2013 Android Auto Car Play

Will keep you posted on the results.

So as promised an update on my wireless CarPlay install in my '08 F01 740i.

Last week I finally received the Joyeauto wireless CarPlay unit. You can also use it for Android auto, although that's wired I think.

It took nearly 2 months to arrive from China, maybe Corona had something to do with it.

I found their installation video on YouTube. Of course it wasn't as quick as in the video, but got everything installed in about 3 hours, also using the included installation sheet.

Most complicated was routing the mini jack wire to the aux in the center arm rest.

I removed the central vents, nav screen, climate controls, ash tray and gear box surround. I was then able to connect and route all the wires and install the unit itself behind the nav screen.

I installed the mic on the left A pillar, but may reroute it to the left factory mic location later on.

Wireless CarPlay itself works like a breeze. Do make sure to turn on the aux input for sound. I programmed this to the number 8 preset button.

Siri & phone calls work well. The graphics colours are not very crisp on the screen, but I blame that on the 12-year-old display.

So far very happy with it. In retrospect however I probably would have gone for a hifimaxnavi.com unit, so you also get a fresh new screen.



Cheers,
Liam
