iDrive 5.0 in X3

Hi All,

I have got factory fitted iDrive 5.0 when i purchased my X3 as the build date is July 2016. Has any one used the carPlay in iDrive 5.0 ? does iDrive 5 comes with Apple CarPlay integration ? I am unable to find any supporting answers.

Regards
Nids

Carplay is an additional purchase option here in the US. I believe in the US it can be added via the connected drive portal (no dealer needed ), but it is activated at the back end and is only available to cars that have idrive 5.0 and have a certain manufacture date.

I have no idea how it is handled internationally.

I just read somewhere that I might have mispoke on it being available in the US connected drive portal, too.
