If the car did not come with the car play option, can it be added after? I have a 2018 without navigation

I know on the 2018 X1 you can pay $300 and add CarPlay.

If the hardware supports it, but considering that the OP does not have navigation - it most likely doesn't.

The number of people who don't understand the hardware component and just say "of course you can just add it" never ceases to amaze me since I initially had an X2 that had no way at the time to do CarPlay even though the dealer said "sure we just add it here...." and then proceeded to not be able to.

I don't know if Shawn's magic connection would have been able to do that in that vehicle since I swapped it for a car with the set of options I wanted.

It would help if you expanded this comment to say what you're referring to because at the moment it makes no sense.

I have a CarPlay MMI installed in to my 2017 M240i which gives me full Wireless Apple CarPlay (also an android capability if you use an android phone). If you have a look on YT for the bimmertech video where they install their MMI Prime then you will get an idea of the install process that I did myself. PM me if you need any further info. Happy to help although you will need to check that they have a system for your car. It appears that there is:

I mentioned the Bimmertech YT video above but thought that I should mention that their's is too expensive. I got mine (identical unit) for around $230 (around a third of the Bimmertech one) from a Chinese supplier who is well regarded.

This thread has a load of information also:
