BMW Apps

I apologize if the answer is already on here somewhere, but can BMW Apps be added by the dealer after the fact? I ordered it, but it seems something may have been messed up and the car might not have it when it arrives (but should have enhanced Bluetooth with BMW assist). Thanks

In Canada no. Not through the dealer. After market is your only chance.

Thanks for the info. If it is missing I hope they offer me something more than the $300 back.

Does anyone have any info about if this can be added in the UK? The car has BMW Assist and Profeasional Nav but not BMW Apps. If the dealer can't add it, where could I get it done? Thanks.

Good news

"Please note: the BMW Connected app can only be used in BMW models with the "Apps" special equipment. A retrofit has been on offer for this special equipment since 01/2012 (NOTE: retrofit is not available in USA or Canada). Contact your BMW dealer for details."

Not sure about a local dealer. But Bimmertech can do it remotely once you have the cable and a laptop for $150 (+$50 for the cable)

Does that include the FSC activation code for new models to prevent the add-on being removed when the car's software is updated?

We can retrofit the 6NR (BMW Apps, BMW Plugin and video playback) in almost any BMW.

Please send us your VIN and location by email and we'll reply with a quote.

If you have an F30 with the Nav and Bluetooth/USB we can retrofit the 6NR easily.
If you do not have the Nav or the Bluetooth/USB we would need to add those options first.

Sure, but you would need the Combox too and if you do the Combox you will lose BMW Assist.

@ patrys. I have an f30 with a tech package and enhanced bt / USB. I was hoping to add apps and maybe sat radio.

Would I need any hardware ? Or just software?

As always please send us your VIN so we can check we can be done and how much it will cost.

Thanks
