Bimmertech CarPlay and AndroidAuto MMI Prime Retrofit for BMW
NOTE 1: THIS PRODUCT DOES NOT COME WITH A SCREEN-THIS IS A MULTIMEDIA INTERFACE (MMI) THAT INTEGRATES INTO YOUR CURRENT SYSTEM
NOTE 2: CarPlay MMI Prime uses AUX input to transfer audio over to your BMW’s speakers. If your vehicle is not equipped with an AUX input in Media/Radio, you’ll need to code it. Once we run your vin, we can see if this is needed for your vehicle. If AUX coding is needed, there will be a $49 coding fee added to the order.
Your 17 digit VIN is required to verify proper compatibility with your vehicle, please provide the VIN during checkout to prevent any delays to your order. You can also enter you VIN into the compatibility checker module below.
With its user-friendly and instinctive interface, the MMI Prime makes it easy to use Apple CarPlay or AndroidAuto on your car's native dashboard screen. You can even control and switch between apps with your vehicle's built-in controls, or with your voice with just a press of the Voice Command button.
BimmerTech's CarPlay MMI Prime upgrade is compatible with F-series cars with newer or older iDrive generations (e.g. ENTRY, ENTRYNAV, CHAMP2, NBT, NBT EVO ID4, etc.). It also features Android Auto which you can use on your iDrive screen using the MMI's USB port.
1. Wireless and USB connection
MMI Prime lets you connect your smart phone wirelessly. After pairing your smart phone with the MMI once, the MMI will recognize your smart phone each time you get in your car and connect wirelessly, without you even having to remove your phone from your pocket or bag. When using CarPlay or AndroidAuto you’ll be able to answer calls just like with a Bluetooth hands-free connection.
Only the following Android devices are compatible with the wireless functionality
|Phone Make and Model||Android Version|
|Pixel or Pixel XL||Android 8.0 or higher|
|Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL||Android 8.0 or higher|
|Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL||Android 8.0 or higher|
|Pixel 4 or Pixel 4 XL||Android 10.0 or higher|
|Nexus 5X or 6P||Android 8.0 or higher|
|Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+||Android 9.0 or higher|
|Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9+||Android 9.0 or higher|
|Samsung Galaxy S10 or S10+||Android 9.0 or higher|
|Samsung Note 8, Note 9 and Note 10||Android 9.0 or higher|
2. USB multimedia and charging port
Our CarPlay solution comes with a USB port. It lets you charge your iPhone on longer drives, or you can use it for playing videos and music on your iDrive Screen from a USB thumb drive.
3. Full-Screen Mode
MMI Prime lets you use all your favorite compatible apps on the original BMW display in full-screen. The retrofit's 1280x480 resolution for big screens and 800x480 resolution for small screens look great on all screen sizes.
The Full-Screen mode also includes a Screen Mirroring option, which lets you cast the screen of your mobile device onto the BMW’s display, and stream audio through the car speakers. iPhones mirror wirelessly, while Android phones require a cable connection.
Please note that mirroring of some apps or content using the Screen Mirroring feature may be blocked due to the copyright-holder's DRM. BimmerTech is not responsible for the continued compatibility of any third-party apps with the MMI Prime.
4. Easy control with iDrive and steering wheel buttons
To navigate the apps, you can use the voice command button, the iDrive controller or even the steering wheel buttons, including the roller button.
5. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support
Regardless of which ecosystem you currently use, the MMI prime brings the compatibility to your BMW.
6. Integration with Front and Rear View Cameras
The MMI module makes it easy to add front and reversing cameras to your order for a much lower price. The front view camera can easily be activated by holding the Option button for 2 seconds. To exit camera mode, just press "Back". It can also be set up to appear automatically for up to 20 seconds when shifting from Reverse to Drive.
7. High-quality audio with an equalizer
The audio output circuit in the MMI Prime has been specifically selected to squeeze all the quality we can out of the iDrive AUX input, providing great audio quality for music, streaming and calls.
8. Other features:
- CarPlay MMI Prime supports devices running iOS up to version 14;
- Play music through the BMW stereo system with the help of the AUX input. If you don’t have an AUX port, we can code your car to enable the input;
- Our CarPlay retrofit also uses the factory car microphone for Siri voice commands; This means that you can access your iTunes library, learn the latest news or send texts hands-free. For this feature to work, your BMW has to have Bluetooth or Voice Control;
- The installation is completely plug & play and 100% reversible.

We are typically very quick and have a 24-48 hour turnaround time. Transit time depends on your order and which warehouse we are shipping from, but typical transit times are between 5-7 business days from one side of the US to the other.
Majority of the items we offer do ship free to the lower contiguous 48 states. States that require plane or boat to reach (such as Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, etc) do NOT qualify for free shipping. Please contact us to inquire about international shipping costs. During checkout, you will know which items ship free and which have shipping costs associated with them. In general, larger/heavier items will have additional shipping costs (body kits, wheels/rims, etc)
Even though everything can be shipped internationally, sometimes the cost is simply just too high and doesn't make sense to do so. We're here to make sure you have a great shopping experience, so if you have a product(s) you want to inquire about, please contact us at email@example.com
Yes, we do price match reputable competitors in the marketplace. If you find a product cheaper elsewhere, please email us the (1) link of the product from our website and (2) the link to the competitor site. We will make an assessment on our end if we are able to price match or not and respond to you via email.
Typically you have 14 days to return a product you purchase when you change your mind. Damaged and improperly installed products are NOT eligible for returns. Shipping fees may be assessed and not refunded based on criteria as well as restocking fees. Please see our FAQ page for more details.
Unfortunate Kies Motorsports no longer does customer installs (with the exception of crank hubs - we still do thos inhouse). Our HQ is solely reserved for filming, office space, and shipping/receiving.
