Android Auto has been available since 2020. To use Android Auto, you will need an Android smartphone with Android 11 and 5 Ghz Wi-Fi regardless of the smartphone manufacturer. Smartphones from the manufacturers Google and Samsung with Android 10 are likewise compatible.
Android Auto requires the BMW Operating System 7 in your vehicle. The service is part of the optional Connected Package Professional (6C3/4) package. This is available only in connection with BMW Live Cockpit Plus (6U2) or BMW Live Cockpit Professional (6U3). Suitably equipped cars with BMW Operating System 7 can be retrofitted with Android Auto by upgrading software.
In countries where the Connected Package Professional is not available, Android Auto is part of the optional Smartphone Integration (6CP) feature.
Android Auto service has no expiration date and is permanently available in your BMW.
Note: Requirements may vary from country to country.
