Any chance you can share the upgrades with us? Im just excited since the GM of iOS 12 was dropped yesterday and I will be placing my order for the MMI after payday.

Definitely not screen mirroring.
We already have a few versions of SmartView that do it and we do not plan to add this functionality to CarPlay MMI.

I prefer not to speak publicly about the features we are working on at the moment, but full screen CarPlay and USB video playback are definitely on the list.

Can you install and use both SmartView and CarPlay MMI?

I am wondering the same thing, or if there is a way I can connect an extra ATV I have to car play for the mirroring portion.

We have just done a quick test of CarPlay MMI with iOS 12 and Google Maps on a test bench in our Polish office.

That is a bummer. I wonder why would not to consider adding mirroring as a new feature in MMI since you can't combine both hardware, and the fact other MMI's vendors able to include it?

Definitely may have to pull the trigger once Waze releases and this upgrades to full screen. Is there any potential for this retrofit being wireless in the future?

Tested out the BimmerTech box with Waze this morning - it's awesome! Much better than Apple or Google Maps. Display is good on the BimmerTech box. Very much looking forward to a widescreen update but well worth it without it.
