How to use BMW Apple Car Play

October 3rd, 2019 by

In this video, Nicole will demonstrate using Apple Car Play in a 2019 BMW X7. Apple Car Play is available as part of BMW Connected Drive. It is an upgraded option it doesn’t come standard. Apple Car Play requires iDrive 5.0 and BMW navigation system. In addition, you must have an iPhone 5 or newer, running on iOS 9.3 or higher. Car Play will use your iPhone’s data plan.

Apple Car Play integrates your iPhone to BMW’s iDrive system. This is a wireless connection via Bluetooth. Your messages, calls, Apple Maps and music are shown on the center display. With Apple Car Play and Siri you can make calls, return missed calls and listen to your voicemail, all hands-free. You can also send, read and reply to your text messages. You can talk to Siri to get the best route home.

If your iPhone is already paired with your Car’s Bluetooth. Make sure you un-pair It so it can be re-paired for Apple Car Play.

I will briefly show you how to connect your phone to Car Play:
– Turn your Bluetooth and WiFi on on your iPhone then go to settings to Bluetooth
– Go to Communication on your BMW
– Manage Mobile Devices
– Connect New Device
– Connect Apple Car Play Device on your iPhone

Go to your iPhone and show that it matches under available devices. Pair both and allow contacts. Now your BMW Is connected to Apple Car Play.
