Aside from Carplay itself, did you want second phone support?   Should just be a few more simple coding changes. 

Hi, No I don’t require the multiple phone functionality, it was just the Apple Carplay I was after. It appears that Carplay can’t be remotely activated for the 2019 iDrive, so I will need to find someone in Scotland who can do this. The company I was talking to is a 1000 mile round trip.

What is the additional steps to allow two phones to connect at the same time?

You needed extended bluetooth features coded in.

 

@Richywiseman, yep I'd read that too about remote activation. What a pita.

Can you search modules using bimmercode? - pretty sure ts BLUETOOTH_2ND_HFP you need active.

 

Otherwise I'll connect via esys later and dbl check which module it was in on mine. HTH.

That’s definitely the thing I want to sort. I too fell for the sales blurb trap of thinking EBT was just another USB and a charging plate.

Yep, think dealers/bmw probably embarassed by how limited non-EBT functionality is and don't want to mention limitations.

 

But very easy to code in and resolve. A ten minute job with e-sys and an E-net cable.

Superb. Thanks for the info!

 

Will this enable 2nd Phone to handle calls too?

Don't think it does tbh. Worth coding in and trying. If not go back into expert mode and look under that submenu, think it will be HU and then 3003. Should be something like additional or multi phone.

I’ve managed to get it working (somehow) thanks for all your help.

 

i used BimmerCode and a vGate pro 4 from Amazon. 

 

I’d already activated the BLUETOOTH_2ND_HFP and I’m not sure why but it didn’t seem to work. I the. Set all the features for EBT you recommended and it is now working! Thanks again for your help!

 

shame I can’t adjust the heated seat temperatures with the vGate though :-(
