Tutorial: Carplay Installation in a BMW 5 Series E60

Here we will see how to install a Carplay in a BMW E60.
In fact, the only difficulty (or not) will be to get to the station, here it is a CCC.

The hardware was chosen accordingly: Carplay for BMW with CCC.

WHAT'S A CCC?

A CCC of BMW, it is a GPS car radio from BMW with a small or a large screen which is controlled with the joystick, the famous Idrive.
It is presented in this form:

ccc bmw

The menu is divided into 5 separate parts :

Climate: ventilation, air conditioning etc...
Communication: bluetooth
Navigation: GPS (PS: not all CCC radios have GPS, yes, unfortunately it exists)
Entertainment: it's the Media/Sources part
i: Information, for settings and vehicle status

This is the system that precedes the younger CIC system.

Here is the removal procedure to access the CCC:

Duration: 20-30 minutes

Necessary material:
a spatula (supplied in our pack) and a Phillips screwdriver.

Protect the gearshift lever, especially if it's an automatic transmission, because it always returns to the starting position, so there's a risk that the leather will be covered.
