Coding Screen Mirroring

After going a bit crazy with coding last Sunday, I've discovered that my 4 series has hidden options to do screen mirroring from a phone (Android and only Miracast as far as I'm concerned) to the car screen.

After enabling options I thought were related to this feature, I can see a new position in the iDrive menu and I was able to connect to the car from my Windows laptop (only like 1 out of 20 tries though, no idea why).

However, the best I've got was getting this message after getting a proper connection:
"Starting mirroring screen..." and then nothing happened.

Did anyone try that and was able to make it work?

I'm giving another test on Thursday with a mobile phone.

That's cool, but can you share a bit more information please? What devices you tried to connect from, did you get any issues etc?

For now, I'm trying to determine if I just didn't code everything that's needed or I simply used a wrong device to try (a phone with Chromecast and Windows 10 laptop).

As far as I'm concerned it can only potentially work with Android.

Tomorrow, I'm having another test with my colleague's phone. If it works I'll let you know what I did.

You have to plug in the wifi antenna or it won't connect, either an OEM or aftermarket antenna will work.

P/N: 61119372321 for the genuine one.

Not sure I see the point as you are breaking the law if you have to touch the phone whilst driving ?

I agree Steve. The only thing that it may be any use for is if you prefer to use 3rd party nav apps, such as Waze or something.

only option for you is something like the Bimmer-tech Smart View solution.
