Anybody still activating Carplay?

Hello, wondering if anybody is still activating CarPlay, or has recently used a reputable company. Headunit is NBT_EVO X. I am also wondering if I would need a wifi antenna or not. Thanks.

You should definitely work with kubax86 on this. He's responsive and cost-effective.

If the car did not come with CarPlay will need to check for WiFi antenna and you can code this in and when doing so activate it as full screen as well.

I've used Bimmer Remote Coding to activate my full screen Apple Car Play. After some back and forth with tech support, I was able to activate it. And I couldn't be more happier that I did. And the best thing was that it was cheaper then all the others solutions out there.
