CarPlay is better in the 2020 M5

When I last tried CarPlay in my 2017 X5M nav did not work with the HUD and that was enough for me not to use it.

I had no idea that it now works in the M5. I'm all in now. I love it. Spotify works as well and it was not working in the BMW iDrive platform.

Anyone else finding CarPlay useful now?

Apple CarPlay still is not supported in the HUD! I really don't see much use for either Apple CarPlay nor Android Auto when you have a really nice infotainment system like the IDrive 7 especially the Spotify App which has full support and I use all the time other than that what else would you need beside making phone calls while you're in the car anyway.

I'm using CarPlay now in my 20 M5 and when I use nav the directions show up in the HUD. The Spotify app in the regular BMW iDrive (non-carplay) will not show up in my car unlike my 17 X5M where using the same phone the Spotify app shows up every time.

So you can use Waze and it show directions in HUD? Also can you select track from list in HUD? Because I see list of tracks, but when try to select its not work, just dont switch to select track.

I will be really impressed if HUD shows Waze directions. Can you guys with 2020 cars confirm that?? Do notifications for police and stuff also show up in HUD?

I donít use Waze. Iím just in CarPlay and then use the voice button and request a destination. Then it shows up in the HUD. Also, I can scroll the next and previous song when in Spotify from the HUD.

Google Maps nor Apple Maps display in the HUD. Only the native iDrive 7 Nav.

I have issues with my car play. When I'm listing to satellite or FM and i open an app that has audio (or sometimes not even audio), idrive will automatically switch my input to carplay. Does that happen to anyone else? It's annoying.
