That's very odd. I wonder if they screwed up the coding in my car.

Would it be possible for you to PM me you VIN? It would be very helpful when getting the dealer to sort this out.

So with the launch of iOS6 tomorrow from Apple, we should have Email and SMS integration working with the 3.5.4 MX/TX updates??

iOS 6 probably won't launch tomorrow. More likely to be next week. The Golden Master may be released to developers tomorrow.

iPhone iOS6 questions:

1. The ability to read emails and text messages is all wireless, all through Bluetooth, correct?

2. When you get an incoming text, can you see that message atop whatever iDrive is displaying? If your map is on primary with entertainment on split screen and you get a text, does it overlay the map with a preview of what the text says?

I'm hoping that I'm excited about a wireless solution that doesn't require me to make a dozen iDrive spins and clicks. Text comes in, text is displayed on screen. Email comes in, subject line is displayed on screen. Just like the iPhone, but atop the iDrive LCD. Am I going to be happy or sad?

It would be pretty epic if that werew the case ... you can configure all sorts of notifications to display regardless of what you're doing on the phone so for iDrive to replicate that would make me a very happy man indeed

The GM is available to download. Hopefully all the bugs are fixed and office will work the way it was intended to. Will update when finished.

Don't be surprised if the final solution is both the GM and BMW BT update.

Do you not need to set notifications to 'show on lock screen' for emails to show on iDrive? The default is not to show emails on the lock screen. Just go to Notification Center and change the setting.

Gold Master is the final version of software that has been in development and testing (beta testing). It is the product that will ultimately be released to the public.

Nothing has changed from Beta 4 to the Gold Master, so I guess only new SMS coming in when the phone is connected to the car will show up. Kinda sucks, but I guess better than nothing

Do you mean that only SMS shows or that everything that pops up in the notification centre (unread mail, SMS etc) is displayed?

So with the new iPhone 5 the doc connector is changing from a 30 pin to 9 pin connector. I'm worried if there will be an issue for connecting it to the iDrive. While I'm going to pre order an iPhone 5, I won't be getting the F30 until April when the lease on my 128 runs outs. So I'll be interested in hearing feedback from F30 drivers who get an iPhone 5.

I've just tried to get this to work and I can't! I tried it on two iPhones. One was an iPhone 4 on iOS 6 GM, the other was an iPhone 4S on iOS 6 GM. Both were done over Bluetooth.

Anyone know how to get it to work? Does it need to be plugged in with the dock cable instead of over Bluetooth?

Thanks

Nothing for me with the GM either. All integration stopped working after Beta 3.
