as you all know, supra does not have apple car play or android auto in some models and isnt planning to bring in android auto anytime soon, so i found a company called bimmertech and they usually have suppliers in most regions and they offer these devices that are usually installed behind the infotainment panel and it cost me a total of 800$ and now i have screen mirroring, apple carplay, and android auto both wired and wireless, they added a usb port in the glovebox for wired usage and they added an antenna for the wireless android auto/car play. now i feel my car is complete. im in Dubai so i went to a place called Car Code Performance which was listed on https://www.bimmer-tech.net/page-installers which basically shows you their agents or garages that heavily work with bimmer-tech. i hope everyone gets this stuff coz toyota aint gonna bother if its not gonna make them (enough) money, they have just released this like a week ago btw
Peace.

Finally, the updates are installed on bmw idrive. Gather its compatible with 3L? Also is there a need for hardware updates or can you go software only?
Thank you :headbang: :thumbsup:

as far as i have seen they install an MMI device behind the screen panel and as far as software you wil have to switch back and forth from the MMI and the iDrive softwares by holding the menu button. but thats such a minor detail it usually just starts up as soon as i plug my android phone, software should not really be an issue, the installer may want to code somethings in expert mode which i would let them do but it should work for the 3.0 as well. the link i put up shows you installation centers in your country region etc

Nice! You were courageous to pay and try :)
Is this what you ordered, then went to the installer or did you go to the installer and asked for CarPlay & AndroidAuto and they did all?

Yes that's the thing they installed for me. They actually had it in their garage in stock so I didn't need to purchase it and then take it to the place. They already had it in stock

Time to start planning to pull the trigger, funny thing is that when I contact them they are still saying that there's no update about making it work with the Supra. I'm glad to see that it can be done.

This is interesting. Android auto would be cool as my 2.0 already had carplay and I could have sworn it also had android mirroring (which I don't see any more).

They have uploaded a YouTube video of them fitting it on an f22 BMW and as far as I can tell it works just fine on my supra so far

It's still there. I just used it. But you have to go into media and select your phone video which is separate from phone audio.

Yeah for some odd reason the mirroring is sketchy but this kit mentioned above by XtremeMac is the exact same one they put in mine and it has everything that I only go to the idrive menu when I want to set or change vehicle and system and safety settings. Make sure you try and find a gold supplier as they usually have the installation perfected. But a silver or bronze garage should be fine I hope.

Did you first pair your phone or did you just plug it in?

So I'm confused, the 20/21 has mirroring but not Android Auto? What's the difference?
