2010 BMW M3 E90 – Apple Carplay Compatible – Android Auto Compatible | B&B Audioconcepts Cardiff
What did B&B Audioconcepts do for this 2010 BMW M3 E90
This 2010 BMW M3 came to B&B Audioconcepts with a request for Apple Carplay and Android Auto functionality. This generation of M3 does not come with Apple Carplay or Android Auto, which limits the multimedia features. The owner did not want to replace the head unit as it is integrated into the iDrive system of the BMW M3. B&B Audioconcepts recommendation was to integrate a module which would allow the factory screen and iDrive to work with Apple Carplay and android Auto. The functionality of Apple Carplay/Android Auto brings a host of options into your vehicle and we have listed these options below in detail.
Android Auto on your BMW M3 Car Display
Connect your phone to your car display – your Android apps show up onscreen, just like that. Tap to get driving directions or talk to send a text. Even call your mum, hands-free. Android Auto is made to help you focus on the road. And have fun along the way. Just plug in and go.
Get help from your Google Assistant in your BMW M3
With the Google Assistant on Android Auto, keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel. Use your voice to get help with your day. You can find routes, play your favourite songs and even check the weather. Just say “Hey Google” to get started.
Navigation tools to find a better route in your BMW M3
Get real-time alerts with Google Maps and Waze. Even ask your Google Assistant to find petrol stations along the way. You can see it all on your car’s dashboard display, helping you know more about what’s nearby. Just say where to. And then go.
Call and chat features to stay connected in your BMW M3
Keep in touch. All hands-free. Your Google Assistant can read your messages out loud. And you can write back by talking. From making calls to using chat apps with just your voice, Android Auto makes driving less distracting.
Entertainment so you can enjoy the ride in your BMW M3
Take your media on the road. And control it all with your voice. Pause your road-trip playlist and pick up where you left off. Just talk to start a new audio book. Or blast that one song for the hundredth time.
Made for the way you drive your BMW M3
From motorway to country lane and everything in between, Android Auto lets you do more while driving. That means more efficient app controls. And so many ways to make it yours. All powered by Android.
Apple Carplay Integration for BMW M3 E90
CarPlay is a smarter, safer way to use your iPhone while you drive. You can get directions, make calls, send and receive messages, and enjoy your favourite music. All on your car’s built-in display. And with iOS 14, CarPlay introduces all-new app categories and custom wallpapers for your CarPlay Dashboard.
Maps Let your iPhone show you the way in your BMW M3
The power and simplicity of Apple Maps is available in your car. CarPlay can predict where you’re going using addresses from your email, text messages, contacts and calendars. And with a more detailed map, turn‑by‑turn spoken directions and immersive 3D experiences, it’s easier than ever to get where you need to go. One‑tap access to your go‑to and must‑see destinations also helps you find more to see and do when you get there — whether you’re searching for points of interest, driving to a favourite restaurant or looking for nearby petrol stations.
Hands Free!! Phone in your BMW M3
Make calls, return missed calls and listen to voicemail. Siri can help you do all of these things, all you have to do is ask.
Messages Reading and writing is now listening and dictating
You can now send audio messages with Siri on iOS and CarPlay, so you never have to look at your iPhone while driving. You can also ask Siri to share your ETA with someone from your contacts list while navigating with Apple Maps, to help keep everyone who needs to know in the know.
All your music. Beautifully arranged
Access all your content from your Apple Music subscription and additional audio apps using your car’s built‑in controls. Search by artist, album or song. See what’s playing and what’s up next. You can ask Siri to play your favourite song by Arcade Fire, act as your personal DJ or stream one of more than 100,000 live radio stations.
Calendar Stay on top of your day when you’re on the road
The Calendar app gives you a quick, simple view of the day ahead while you’re on the go. And if you have a meeting, you can just tap to get directions or dial in, using your car’s speakers and microphones to keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
Control with a word. Or a touch. Or a twist
CarPlay features Siri voice control and is specially designed for driving scenarios. CarPlay also works with your car’s controls — knobs, buttons, touchpad or touchscreen. And the apps themselves have been reimagined for the car, so you can use them while your eyes and hands stay where they belong.
Invite more apps along for the ride
CarPlay supports other apps on your iPhone — like your favourite audio, messaging and voice apps, along with apps in new categories, like third-party parking, EV charging and quick food-ordering apps. Apps developed by car manufacturers are also supported, so you can control more of your car’s features without ever leaving CarPlay.2 You can personalise your experience by rearranging exactly how your apps appear in CarPlay through settings on your iPhone. And app developers now have access to a variety of tools and templates that enable them to provide smarter, safer ways to use iPhone in the car.
Choose your favourite navigation app
CarPlay supports third-party navigation apps directly from the Dashboard. So you have even more choices to get where you’d like to go.
