I spoke with Apple Genius about this today. They told me the car has to have wireless changing to have Carplay.[/QUOTE]


That is not true, I do not have wireless charging. I took some more pics today showing the center console setup without wireless charging, my window sticker, and how carplay is listed in the connected drive store. My manufacture date is 8/17.

One thing I did notice which was a little surprising was that when the phone connects to carplay it stops using the bluetooth connection from the phone and instead hooks up to a wifi hotspot generated by the car. I don't know what is generating the hotspot in the car, I don't see any mention of wifi in any of the iDrive menus.
