I messaged junior but haven't got any message back yet.

I first thought 2017 model years are not eligible but if you see same result for your 2018 model year, it seems like a temporary availability with iDrive store.

Car play is specifically shown as incompatible in my 2018 xLine too.

The option appears with a big cross through it and a message saying ‘Not available for your vehicle’.

I got my X1 back in December 2017. Just got off the phone with a Genius and stated I could not purchase CarPlay though I previously saw it in the ConnectedDrive store on my screen a couple months back. He stated I couldn't get CarPlay because I didn't have the wireless charging option though I had the upgraded Nav package.

Has anyone proven this to be wrong?

Genius told me my 2017 X-Line doesn't seem to support for carplay either - I have Navigation business package.

I guess it is not necessarily good to have carplay with Nav business package - both navigations are still behind google maps, I really give up.

Hi All,

Been away for a bit, but I don't have much else to say as to how I got it on my car. The app was available right in the connected drive store accessed right from the car. It was found along side the other BMW services you can purchase such as the concierge service. I have the 2018 model, it looks like some of you are trying this with a 2017 model, which per Apple's site stating vehicle availability, you should not expect compatibility.

Maybe this helps as one more piece of compatibility/clarity, I've attached my invoice from BMW for the service with personal information redacted. Again, I have the convenience package, heated front seats and steering wheel, Navigation Business, and sport seats as all of my options. Beyond this I don't know how else I can be helpful if it's not appearing for you to download.

I have the exact same spec as above, but UK and without sport seats. My car was built 11th April 2018.

CarPlay is unavailable. Lord knows why.

UPDATE:

I got nothing! I wasn't able to locate CarPlay from the app or in the vehicle

Now that I've had my X1 for a few weeks, I'm going to give it another try today and see if the app appears in Connected Drive!

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.

That's wild. We just took delivery of essentially same car (no sport seats no fineline trim). The 'genius' must have been full of it yesterday. How can you tell your build date?

That is wild. I don't think seats or wood have anything to do with technical capability!

To find the build date just open the driver door and look towards the bottom of the center pillar. There is a black sticker that says "MFD BY BAYERISCHE MOTOREN WERKE AG" and then has a build date, vehicle weights and VIN number

If you run a spec check with your VIN does it show anything about Wi-fi?

With an online checker. Just enter last 7 digits of your VIN

Try this one or google BMW VIN check.

Ok what about CarPlay itself? In your region does the configurator show any option that includes Wi-fi or CarPlay? I have the innovation package on my F30 that includes Wi-fi for example. Does you car perhaps have an option that includes Wi-fi.

Nope, on the '18 X1 you can purchase a wireless charging and wifi hotspot option for $500, or an Apple CarPlay compatibility option for $300. Neither were on my window sticker and I certainly don't have the wireless charging hardware in the car. In my case, I was able to buy Apple CarPlay compatibility directly from the connecteddrive store through iDrive for $300, but thats what's at debate here, why I could do it vs the others that seemingly have the same build but don't have the option.

Yes agreed, but somehow you have the Wi-fi antenna so wondered if there was an option that had it included as part of a package.
