I just bought a 2018 x1 and was told I could add Apple Car Play through BMW Connected by dealer for $300. The option doesn?t exist for me in BMW Connected. BMW Genius now says it needs to be ordered with the car to have the option. Is there any way to retrofit this? I have Navigation Plus on the car? Thanks!

Carplay is an option on the 2018 X1 and as far as I know, it still has the 6UP head unit. Same for the X2.
I was not saying it is not possible from factory to get CarPlay via Provisioning. The issue is activating CarPlay after the fact, and there is no way as of now to get the needed 143 FSC Code for ENTRYNAV or ENTRYNAV2 Head Unit.

Hi shawnsheridan, I'm having a same issue as hdsmitty... Is there a solution for it? I really like to add Apple Carplay on my car...
Not possible, at least not yet. Currently CarPlay only possible on NBT2 EVO, and F48 is not available with this Head Unit.

I believe I have NBT2 EVO as I have a premium package. I asked BMW and they told me as below.

Dear Customer,



Vehicles that comes with an active CarPlay from factory have code 6CP embedded.



Vehicles that are eligible to purchase CarPlay after factory must have 609 (Professional navigation), 6AK (ConnectedDrive services) and one option code below:

6NS, 6NW, 6NP, 6U9 or 6FR.



Your vehicle has 609, 6AK codes. However, none of the other options required.

Your car has 6UP Navigation Plus, which is ENTRYNAV2 Head Unit, not NBT2 EVO Head Unit, which as of now, CarPlay beyond factory order is not possible.

And after can i get CarPlay on connecteddrive ? (6UP + 6AK + 6NS). Someone have already do it?
Does BMW are ok for activate officially an option like 6NS?

Thanks
I don't understand what you ask, but I will say 6NS has no affect on CarPlay / Connected Drive Services.

6NS Coding does not care what Car / Head Unit VIN is.

Yes, you can. I cannot advise on hardware specifics though. Car needs to have ATM module though to keep all Telematic functions such as RTTI.
