Finally...Full screen CarPlay

Have loved CarPlay with all the maps options, but the underuse of the screen has always bugged me.

Used the Bimmer-Remote folks and bought the update for my 2017 m240i. It wasn't easy finding the hardware to make the connections (USB flash not an option for our cars from ANY other site that I could find), but finally used a friend's old PC with Windows 8 and a USB adapter to an OBD-ethernet cable from Amazon. Got the program to run, identified my vehicle, then it stalled out waiting for online verification. Tried a couple more times but still had the same problem.

I emailed the company and they promptly responded back that their server was apparently down, and notified me a few hours later when it was back up.

Tried again and coding finished within a few minutes. Worth the wait! Full screen looks and functions the way it should now!
