Carplay through HUD?

I'm waiting until Aug to order a 2021 but can't remember on my test drive if Carplay navigation shows up on the HUD or only does it only show nav instructions on the HUD when using the factory nav. I'm sure this is an easy yes or no from someone here. Thanks in advance!

CarPlay nav currently does not display in the HUD.

Apparently it's an apple issue (displaying on multiple screen), but they just recently added the capability to the latest release of CarPlay. It's not yet functional on any car yet as far as I know, but presumably it should be available in the coming year(s) (hopefully through a software update).

It'll be interesting to see whether navigation is available in HUD through Android Auto when BMW implements it this summer.

Nothing earth shattering here ... just reinforcing what you pointed out.

Not sure at this point whether I'll be ordering this summer, or joining you for a 2021. On one hand, I've waited long enough. On the other... whole new model year.. extra features... hmmmm....
