The current gen CarPlay (iOS 12 and below) has always felt so unpolished and unfinished, to me... You have these large screens, but CarPlay would only use half the screen, leaving big black blob to the right. Thankfully, BMW's split-screen option does allow you to display other content there, even matching album artwork when you play music via CarPlay - which does not show up in default Apple CarPlay system (!!! what a waste of space !!!). Looking at the screenshots from iOS 13 and the keynote this morning, it looks like CarPlay FINALLY will be something I'll actually use. I've had CarPlay for years in different cars, never used it beyond the setup/novelty run, always switching back to default BMW apps which are far superior. iOS 13 may change that (reserving final judgment for when it's out).
