I'm in the same boat and have been trying to see what options there are - worst case, I'll live with it or go the USB drive route. But how about something like this?

http://www.bimmer-tech.net/index.php...ive-retrofits/

I've exchanged a few e-mails with Patryk from Bimmertech to just figure out if it's possible to retrofit the enhanced USB functionality. It looks like it can be done in theory by adding the Combox. I'll revisit this when I actually get my car here. But sounds like there may be hope.

Let us know, I would be interested in doing this.

My F30 did not come with a y-cable. I bought one on eBay.

Bmw Assist is the catalyst to make the white iphone cable work. Period. If you have Assist, it works. If you dont, you need Y cable.

Correct. But I believe that functionality comes from the addition of the combox module.

Y-Cable

Hey PrazVT, did your car arrive stateside yet? Its supposed to have the Y-Cable inserted at the US delivery center, just before it gets shipped to your dealer. They were a little confused about Euro Delivery cars though, is almost like they hadn't thought it through.

"...well, most cars get the Y-Cable put into the manual bag at the delivery center...but with Euro Delivery cars you take the manuals with you in Europe...so.....we're not sure what happens there..."

Nah, it's supposed to reach the States around August 2nd. I hope you are right about them including the iPod cable once it gets here - makes sense I guess. I picked up the car literally across the street from where it was built so I can see how they would omit that in Munich. I didnt see anyone futzing with ipod cables during the plant tour lol. I'll let you guys know, though, when it gets here.

Voice activation 62 plate 320d sport with business media

Hi all,

I'm a newbie to the site so any advise is appreciated.
I've read a lot of the threads and am even more confused now.

I've just bought a UK 320d sport with business media on a 62 plate registered September but I've not seen the vehicle yet.

I'm not sure with the business media package whether this means it has advanced Bluetooth I think it's called..?

Will I be able to make voice activated phone calls etc with my vehicle or is this only on advanced or professional media models?

Thanks in advance

2014 F30 335 without Enhanced Bluetooth or USB

Hey all new to this forum and was reading this thread and was curious about added enhanced bluetooth and usb. I just picked up my 2014 335 MSport and it just has the standard bluetooth and usb. I was looking at the combox module on bimmertech see link below. Has anyone purchased this and installed it? I am curious how easy the install is. I believe this only gives you the enhanced bluetooth and usb and not the BMW APPS. Also it says in the specs if you install this you lose bmw assist. Does anyone know if that is true or now?
