Full Screen CarPlay

Has anyone had full screen CarPlay activated? If so is it better than the existing version that only uses 2/3 of the screen?

Unfortunately I am running iDrive I-Step firmware L so the software does not support it, apparently you need either N or O - but not P!

How does one activate the fullscreen CarPlay? My 2019 F57 has CarPlay, but I don't use it because the CarPlay display is so small.

I suspect that full screen is not possible in the Mini implementation because of the ability for the user interface to be switched to Split Screen. I am thinking that they just decided not to implement two separate views of CarPlay because of this. Of course, it's just a guess on my part... but I was a software product manager in one of my former lives.

I thought it was an iDrive 7 thing, and we have iDrive 6.

There are lots of people offering full screen car play for BMW's with idrive 5/6 on eBay - so there is no reason why it wouldn't work on Minis with widescreen touch displays.


Waze on a BMW in fullscreen.

But that's only with the newest version of iDrive, no?

I would love fullscreen Carplay, we have this really lovely display that is tiny when only having Carplay up.
