Not what I wanted to hear, I was hoping for sms messages to be read out with ios6. guess you'll still need office to do this even with ios6.

IOS 6 beta 2 and up will work with the BMW office. However, if your iDrive menu only get the Contacts or even without Office but only Contacts ... you need to enable the related menu options via coding.

The coding options are in cic and media module. By using NCSExpert, just search the options with PIM_xxxx it is pretty straight forward if you know coding.

I am located in Hong Kong where my 09/2011 E93 has no bluetooth and my iDrive does not have Office menu at all. I need to retrofit the bluetooth aerial only to get all the function as the combox has already been built in the factory.

I spoke to Bimmertech. They will code it for $149 + $49 for the cable.
It WILL be erased after every software update and then it will be a $75 "re-code" charge.

I'll look into coding myself, there are other things I wanted to code for too. If it is pretty straight forward I'll go for it, if not $200 isn't too much to ask for this feature IMO.

i'm in the exact boat as you . I have Nav and basic bluetooth only (No Apps or enhanced bluetooth) and no office in my menu. Do you mind me asking what the coding at $150 would enable ? Is it just the office menu ?

Thanks in advance

Yes, it would give you Office and Bluetooth Audio.

So would this coding theoretically work in a base F30 with just the "Contacts" function on the iDrive? I don't have Nav/Enhanced BT/BMW Apps.

The price is very reasonable, how do you go about getting it done?

Excited. I just purchased my 2012 328i and was looking forward to using this feature since my salesman told me it was possible. Then was completely let down when I went to use it and noticed it was not compatible with my iphone 4

Just goes to show that most salesmen don't really know this car. I was told the exact same thing that I could use the button on the steering wheel to make voice calls on my iPhone 4 until I went to try it and it didn't work. His answer was "Oh ya, that's right, you need enhanced bluetooth".. He also said I could use the white iPhone cable to connect the phone to the system (without the need for the Y cable).. Guess how that turned out?

Cesium, let us know how you are getting this done or if you do it yourself. I don't mind paying but I'm also not afraid to muck around with coding it myself through the ODBII port.

Ya I was leaning towards doing it myself. But now I'm thinking ill just pay bimmer tech this time. And then recode myself after software updates.

I have iOS 6 Beta 3 and updated my iDrive to ;

Multimedia: MX-003.005.004

Telephone: TX-003.005.004

However still I don't get the Office Messages and E-Mail functions. I just have the Contacts listed.

Mine is 03/2012 built and I have the enhanced Bluetooth and Usb options.

What may be the problem ?

Thanks

Also you can try deleting your phone from idrive. And then pair the phone from a clean start. Thats what worked for me.

Just to keep this thread going - I have ios 6 beta 4 running on an iPhone 4S. This is in a 2013 3 Series with Enhanced Bluetooth - no navigation.

• SMS and Email messages work
• You definitely have to have Notifications turned on and set to "View in Lock Screen"

This is great news for all iPhone users - hopefully compatibility will come for older iPhone models down the road.

Anyone have any success with calendars?

The problems is that beta 4 is NOT giving on some vehicles. It was working with Beta 3. Hopefully it will come back with Beta 5 or the GA release.

I'm hoping they fix it to differentiate between emails and SMS, and old messages populate.

I'm trying to figure out why this isn't working on my F20 (the dealer didn't know, and is trying to figure it out). One guess was that nav was required, but you seem to be a data point to the contrary. The remaining guesses were:

- 614 (Internet)
- 615 (?)
- BMW Live
- BMW Apps

Do you have any of these options?

Thanks

In a few days you can have iOS 6 and then it should work.

All I have is the Advanced Bluetooth and the Harman Kardon system, No Nav or Apps.

Make sure you have the phone notification set to display on the home screen. This is required. They will only show new messages once the system is connected.
