It's quite a process. Make sure that your "notifications" for "mesages" on your iphone is set to show in the notification center and the "alert style" is "alerts". Also, "view in lock screen" is set to on. On your BMW, make sure you have office and iphone settings to show messages

I thought I had everything set and then I realized I forgot one thing. On your iPhone, go to settings -> bluetooth -> click the arrow on the right side of your BMW (to the right of where it says "not connected" or "connected" and in that menu there is a box that says "show notification" I had to turn that on and it worked fine to show my messages.

Now it works. I still can't get email to work but I have not tried the newest way of doing it which is to make sure that you open your mail client first before trying to show your email in the car.

If the above doesn't work, not sure what to tell you.

BMW Apps

I have just ordered (in June) a 328 GT and I was informed that my selection of "6NR BMW Apps" is no longer available from July production and later. Does anyone know why this is? What impact will it have on functionality?

I have the 6NH, 6WA and 601 (TV) options if that makes any difference.

Hi guys,

Im new here so tell me if im posting wrong etc.

I just got myself a 325i msport yesterday, and obviously want to play my music off my iphone 5.

Can anyone reccomend the best way for me to play my music and be able to to change song via the steering wheel/radio buttons. for now just using aux cable and the iphone itself, which isnt really safe/ideal.

FYI i dont have sat nag/screen etc. but do have USB and aux sockets.

Let me know any other deets you need.

thanks

iPhone 5 and BMW Y cable

I've separately tested the Y cable (my wife's iPhone 4 connects fine) and the apple adapter for data and media. I tried to update the car software from the BMW update site, but the software is up to date, as you'd expect for a 2 week old car.

So I'm a but concerned at how people seem to have used adaptors to connect their iPhone 5, whereas I seem to be experiencing a compatibility problem. The phone connects fine over Bluetooth.

Any thoughts?

Thanks
Did you ever get this resolved? I have an '08 535i and I'd been using a BMW Y cable through the AUX in behind the center console and power by plugging in the USB part of the Y cable into a USB car power plug. This had been working fine. I just got an iPhone 5S and tried using a cheap Chinese made 30 pin to 8 pin adapter AND another adapter cable but none work. I still get power but music only comes from the iPhone speakers. Has anyone been able to get the Y cable to work with this kind of adapter? Thanks.

Original Apple adapter fixed it.
