I prefer iDrive over ACP because its cleaner, more integrated and easier access to Contacts, etc. . . . however when I switch back to iDrive then Siri Eyes Free stops working. The BMW Genius informed me that Siri Eyes Free will only work now when Carplay is active. When I asked if this was by design or a bug. . .he did not know! So, as of now, if you elect to use iDrive instead of Carplay connection then Siri Eyes Free is gone. Are they trying to force us to subscribe to Carplay?

About the only thing ACP offers me is access to text messages where Siri Eyes Free can also read and send text, email, voice mail and much more.
