Can anyone in the UK with a RHD Supra with CarPlay enabled confirm for me what the screen looks like. i.e. Is the vertical fixed icon bar on the right or left? Typically in a LHD car this icon bar is on the left side of the screen and visa versa in RHD. I guess the theory is that this bar in closest to the driver. I am in Australia where we don't have CarPlay in our Supra and I am looking at 3rd party solutions, most of which have the bar fixed to the left for LHD markets.

If this helps, I think the answer to your question is the left hand side.
Stock, UK car.

Yup. left hand side for me too. though in my 2018 Mini it was on the right hand side. exactly for the reason that's it's closer to the driver. I thought it was configurable in the iPhone, but I can't find a setting.

The setting is in the head unit firmware. Sloppy programming from BMW They didn’t consider a RHD version of CarPlay for the Supra. I wonder if RHD Z4s are the same?

I had actually found a dude on ebay that got it activated for under $75AUD..definitely much cheaper that some of the other sites I've seen advertising this carplay activation for the GR Supra

Can you share the eBay vendor you used?
