Activated Carplay Yayy!!!

I got my 2017 Countryman without factory Carplay just activated for $120!
But you need to have at least one series with a touchscreen. It seems IUSB has the wifi antenna already built in. I am really mad at Mini for not giving us the option to activate it.

Just one simple file on a USB stick. Stick it in the car for about 1 min. Then reboot the system 3 times and voila!

Here is a whole thread already on it:

@ndal2 hi. I have same issue - new user ( can you pm me please
I have mini f54 2019 with CarPlay activated from factory.
would it be possible to update with new UI 2021 and full screen CarPlay?
Thanks ahead
Sure, can be done.
Check our website for updates.
You can get CarPlay unlocked but you can't get navigation unlocked. Headunit is not capable of this.
