BMW new keyless entry feature for G05 and G20 only works on Android (no iOS support yet due to Apple locking down NFC). So if you have a new X5 or new G20 3 series you need Android to get into the car keyless but then you need iOS to connect to iDrive. Logic?

I've heard the story about BMW not liking Google's privacy policies. Whether that's the only reason holding back Android Auto is unknown. I also hear BMW will release Android Auto as a OTA download for iDrive 7 cars (presumably through the app store) sometime during 2020 calendar year.

We shall see...
