Hi Shawn!

I have a new F48 purchased on March 2019.
I have no 6UN or "prepared for carplay" options. It has a small 6.5'' display id6.
Is it possible to activate Carplay on that model? Please PM me. Thank you!

It's worth noting that for the EU/UK models it really DOES need the wifi aerial to make it usable. I struggled to pair/setup Carplay on my X1 F48 without it. As Shawn says its cheap and given the head unit needs changing for (most?) UK/EMEA car play additions -its a simple fit. If you don't have one to hand at the time, it's possible to fit without removing any cables, just by pulling out the head unit to give access to the back..

Hi Shawm, can you please help me enable CarPlay on my X1 2018 model?
I have the premium package without 6cp nor WiFi. Itís the business nav (narrow) head unit.

The other thing that people have asked is "is there a way to see if you have a wifi antenna/wifi circuit without removing the whole radio and checking the rear?". I'm not aware of a method to do this via checking VIN or using any software - but maybe that will come. What you can do, in the UK/Europe at least, is to get access to the radio by carefully pulling off/back the dash trim (it's really not very difficult) and then removing the 2 screws that hold the radio in. Gently pulling the radio forward - you can just see towards the right whether there is a Wifi AND Bluetooth logo or just Bluetooth. For me and two others who have found themselves here that I'm aware of - this was the case..

The 1st photo I've posted is the replacement head unit which DOES of course have both..
The 2nd one (red arrow) is the original with JUST bluetooth (and therefore not viable for Carplay)

I'm sure Shawn will help you but be advised that 3 of us in Europe have had/will have to also change our head unit too. Read carefully..

Shawn will help - but he couldn't tell me and a recent post says it's not possible to tell. See my post re checking the head unit - and see what Shawn says. I think you MAY have options on your car that help - but if I was you I'd check the logos on the head unit to see if you have a Wifi head unit unless Shawn is 100% sure from other details of your car. Removing the trim isn't as hard as I thought it was and others (including me) can help with that- IF it is necessary..

Good luck!

Hello, according to BMW and my Vin Apple CarPlay wasn't possible but my dealer managed to install Apple CarPlay with little bit of coding and placing WiFi antenna. But CarPlay is only on 2/3 of the screen. Does anyone know how to get fullscreen Apple CarPlay? The original head unit has been replaced with an 8.8" touch screen from bmw. I drive a BMW F48 8-2017. Thank you

Just got CarPlay setup with Gerry. It was very quick and works pretty well. I've been trying to enable CarPlay ever since I bought the car, really glad to finally find a solution.
