Full screen CarPlay for NBTEvo_U19384I

Hi. The dealer just updated the software on my 2017 X3 and it now shows as NBTEvo_U19384I. I have CarPlay already, but I want full screen. What do I need to do?

Thanks!

Hey kubax86! I've got an M2 comp and didn't order the (extortionate) extended bluetooth pack so blocked from activating carplay via BMW, your solution sounds great, just a couple of Q's

Can you activate fullscreen with icons on right (I'm in UK so steering wheel on the correct side)

Are my original FSC codes backed up and restorable by your app? I have a lease car so would like to restore to factory on return (I'm aware of the BMW dealer update/idrive breakage issue)

Hello,
1. yes could be activated on the right.
2. yes, they could be backed up and then they could be restored.
Write me PM with your VIN and we will check your options.

Thanks

Got my download link to the app and message with code. Plugged enet cable into M2 opened feature installer app, everything loaded and connected perfectly and process took about 10 minutes to complete. Detailed info and progress bars reassure you that all is working!

After initial install CarPlay menu didnít show but a quick restart of the idrive made it pop up.

I used this guide to pair BMW to iPhone CarPlay


On pairing, after everything seemed to have worked, I kept getting an error saying process couldnít complete at the very end (felt like Wi-Fi connect was struggling). After 4 attempts I started again. This time aT the final stage of connection where it says it could take some time I went to wifi on my iPhone and selected the bmw WiFi link, CarPlay link completed and everything is working perfectly now!

Not sure if it was a Wi-Fi problem (have a Wi-Fi antenna arriving tomorrow) or software weirdness but itís working ok now!

Will see how it all works on commute tomorrow.

Recommend Kubaxís service, 100% fast and great value, cheers mate!

Carplay worked perfectly on my commute today, makes Spotify and BBC Sounds so easy to use (previously used built in bluetooth BMW Spotify connection and while it 'usually' worked was very flakey and frustrating, and of course no BBC app). Detected and opened up automatically and ran smoothly.

Will install wifi antenna as if I move phone away from cup holder area it disconnects. However you could definitely live without adding this as there is the perfect space for your phone right in front of the cup holders (I have always used this *******, I just want the flexibility to use phone anywhere in car!

BTW full screen looks brilliant & sharp plus the battery/reception/icon menu is on the right for my UK car just as requested!
I'll post some pics of my wifi install and Carplay in operation this weekend.

Again highly recommend KUBAX'S service!

BMW M2 Competition iDrive Dashboard removal << for Google

I've had carplay in use all week on my commute, works great but got a little stuttery and disconnected a couple of times when moving my phone away from just under the idrive.

So this morning I installed my £10 wifi antennae bought from amazon.

STEP 1 - Hardest bit was removing the carbon dash/airvent trim as the clips on the left side are pretty secure and I was worried about damaging. there are no youtube videos for this particular car to guide! A couple of trim tool helped and more force than I liked! It did eventually pop off with no damage, however the edge of the carbon is open weave and could definitely get damaged if care not taken!

STEP 2 - Remove radio/ac panel. This requires 2 x torx screws removing then pull evenly around edges to pop off from two lower clips holding bottom half of panel in place.

STEP 3 - Remove iDrive unit. The big silver box with all the electronic gubbins is held at the top by two torx screws. Remove these scews and then the unit just slides forward and out.

STEP 4 - Rotate the idrive unit to reveal back and the WLAN port (purple on my unit) is easily accessible. I plugged in my amazon FACRA wifi antenna then....

STEP 5 - My antenna had a plastic, paddle like end with a 3M adhesive pad on back. I routed this down to the bottom of dash using touch. There is a flat panel right behind where I was placing the phone in front of the cup holders, the antenna paddle fitted perfectly here and stuck in place, the bundled up excess antenna cable fits in the space above with plenty of room to spare.

STEP 6 - put everything back together!

NOTE: As you can see in the pictures I DID NOT disconnect the battery or ANY or the cables attached to the panels or drive units, there was enough slack to do the above with everything still connected and engine off. The only part in the way when installing/removing other units is the airvent panel. I just taped it to the back of the idrive screen to keep out of my way. I used towels and wooly hats to cover areas and parts that might get scratched by the exposed clips and metal edges of things.

Probably not recommended by pro's doing with all plugs in as everything is live but I couldn't be arsed doing it the right way! The wifi antenna doesn't really have much energy running through it and not likely to cause issues so I used this to justify my laziness.


CONCLUSION 15 minutes of work and I was testing my new antenna, Carplay works anywhere in the car now and seems to connect to my phone much quicker, well worth doing. As I said above the only tricky bit it getting the airvent panel off as the force needed feels uncomfortable! Rest was easy-peasy!

Just had this installed by Jakub today! Highly recommended installer with quick responses and pain free installation.

He was patient in answering all my questions prior to purchase and throughout installation was very attentive to progress to ensure everything went smoothly.

Thanks again Jakub!!!
