Carplay activation tutorial on BMW i3

BMW i3 activation

In this tutorial we will see how to activate Apple Carplay on a BMW i3. After checking the chassis number of the customer, we found that it has the pre-equipment Apple Carplay and to benefit from it, simply activate it. Also, it didn't have a Wifi antenna (wireless Apple Carplay at BMW since 2016!) so you have to install it. Of course, some BMW vehicles already have the original Wifi antenna so for them, no need to install it.

Required hardware: the complete kit provided

Installation time: 5-10 minutes

Inventory: a BMW cable, a USB stick with the activation program and the activation key specific to the chassis number.

STEP 1: INSTALLATION OF THE WIFI ANTENNA BMW I3
