In the past, only BMW had wireless CarPlay, but we are already some years later, so I would assume the EQS has it as well? However, I can only find articles online about wired/usb CarPlay, not about a wireless connection?

Someone can confirm if the EQS has wireless CarPlay capabilities?

It's not a promoted feature but this excerpt from USA owner's manual says you can connect android/carplay through bluetooth instead of cable if you prefer; I understand Belgium cars are the same for this feature but in the unlikely event this is not the case, you can buy an aftermarket usb dongle to convert to wireless which is what I did with EQC.

There are different ones. I have used this for Android successfully-


I have installed this other one for another person for their iphone on a different car. Model is Wireless CarPlay Adapter "CarlinKit" 3.0. Here is an Amazon link from Amazon Spain but should be available also in multiple outlets-


Here is a more comprehensive list, including a link to other ones like Ottocast which I haven't tried but it's supposed to work with both Carplay and Android-

and since you're from Belgium as well, do you have the dashcam and does it auto-start? I have to activate the dashcam at the start of every drive, verre annoying?
edit: saw your remark in the other thread!

I just updated my iPhone to iOS 16 and my EQS 450+ is showing the following message when I try to launch Apple CarPlay:

"Apple CarPlay could not be started. Your device has been connected as a Bluetooth phone."

Any suggestions?
