Looks great!

The frustrating thing about CarPlay (certainly with stock installs on the LCI/Roadster) is that you cannot use google maps to display directions on the HUD.

You also cannot use google maps stand alone outside of CarPlay - if you wanted to view a route as a navigator, you can't do this, you only get a list of written instructions. So you have to choose between directions on HUD or superior traffic navigation on google maps but no HUD.

Wonder if it's the same on the third party carplay implementations (I suspect it's an Apple issue, not a BMW issue!). Well done all the same!
