To have CarPlay in your BMW E46, it is essential to change your radio. The original car radio available on the vehicle has not been designed to accommodate the Apple's onboard system.

In order to enjoy all the features provided by Apple CarPlay, owners of the BMW E46 must change their radio set. Attention! The choice of the device is not important. It is only important to choose an accessory compatible with the onboard system of the American firm.
