    Anyone tell me how much it costs to install and does it always have to be done by BMW? Also is the cost the same for each model? Thanks.

    I went 1£ 1 month trial then paid up for unlimited - I find although a squeezed Waze screen it’s far better than bmw sat nav and includes speed traps and better alternative routes when needed. Also so easy to run Deezer and Spotify on demand - on my X5 I pay annual subscription for online entertainment as kids insist on it but Apple CarPlay is a much more cost effective way to access these music services if you already have a streaming service to your iPhone...

    Good to hear as I’m planning on activating the trial shortly. Do we know if unlimited choosen it stays with the car if sold etc?

    Knowing how it’s going they’d wriggle out of it.

    Should be with the car for as long as apple car play supported - ie it’s then with the car not just current owner

    With an update you can get full screen car play apparently.

    Has anyone seen this / does it distort the image or scale for full screen !? My car 3 months old and doesn’t have OEM full screen CarPlay so must be a rescale I assume !?

    It might be 3 months old but when was it built. There is definitely full screen carplay out there for recently produced cars.

    If it's to go into your M3 look at my thread. Otherwise

    TL:DR

    -Get the Enfig Double DIN kit
    -EITHER get the heater relocation panel OR get the extended wiring harness to go to the boot if your car had the factory Double DIN satnave from the off
    -Fit a CarPlay headunit. I fitted a Sony XAV-AX100. Others now include items from Kenwood and Alpine iLX-700.

    I reckon mine cost me around £450 by the time I accounted for connectors, steering controls and adaptors.

    -Alternative is to fit the Alpine ilX-702E46. It's £700 however, but it does also have TomTom maps built into it and DAB.

    Thanks for your reply. Actually was thinking for the F32 but can see the BMW CarPlay might be the cheaper option.

    Quite liking Apple car play...got it a bit less expensive during black friday which helped.
    I wouldn't be putting too much faith in Waze speed camera positions though...seems a bit haphazard.
