Carplay - how does multitasking / Google Maps work ?
Hey, I've been in the market for a CPO x5 and was going to wait to find a 2017 so I could get one with Carplay, but I just realized it might not be able to do what I want it to do. I'm a big Google Maps user and currently (in my 3 series) use a magnet holder on my AC vent to hold my phone running Google Maps while I use the car radio like normal. The thought of wirelessly streaming Google Maps to the built in screen sounds awesome.. but will I be able to listen to the regular BMW radio while Google Maps is running through Carplay? If not, I almost think I should just get a '16 without Carplay instead of paying up for a '17 with Carplay. Anyone know how it works?
