Android Auto for BMW models in Malaysia will arrive in 2021, details TBA 01

It’s been a long time coming, but BMW owners in Malaysia can soon look forward to Android Auto support in 2021, complementing Apple CarPlay.

During the introduction of the 2020 BMW M135i and 2020 BMW X1 sDrive18i, BMW Malaysia also stated that they will offer support for Android Auto on selected models running on BMW OS 7.0 starting 2021.

While the company’s announcement is good news for Android users, further details were lacking, such as wireless support and cost.

Yes, cost.

Back in 2019, BMW famously tried to charge owners a subscription fee to use Apple CarPlay in their cars, but dropped it after it garnered lots of negative press.

That said, potential BMW owners in Malaysia still need to fork out a one-time RM 1,299 activation fee on compatible models, though the subscription fee has been waived.

Now it remains to be seen if BMW Malaysia charges a similar activation fee for Android Auto users.
