[B]Siri Eyes Free [/B]

I noticed my Siri Eyes Free stopped working ( I use it to have her read emails). The BMW Genius asked me if I was using Apple Carplay or iDrive. I explained I disabled Carplay after trying it because iDrive is much cleaner and more integrated and the only thing Carplay offers is Text messages, which Siri can handle too with Siri Eyes Free. The 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?

So, is this a bug or baked in?

If the Genius doesn't know then he should find out and get back to you because....well, that's his job!
