Can BMW apps be retrofit if I have standard USB/BT?

I was wondering the same thing. When I bought my car the sales guy told me I would have pandora etc in the car. I went into service because I couldn't find it, but I didn't have that package with the BMW Assist either.. When I asked him about getting it put in, he said that a whole new computer system would need to be put in.. So this is a great question.. I'd love to know the answer too.

You cannot install BMW apps, it is a factory install only. Sorry guys.

If your car has a Combox then BMW Apps can be retrofitted.

As long as you have the Navigation and the Bluetooth then we can retrofit the 6NR ConnectedDrive in your car.
Feel free to email us for more details.

I'm picking up my (almost) new July 2012 F30 328i Sedan tomorrow and just wanted some clarification from those of you far more knowledgeable than myself.

The car has never been titled and is one of their service loaner cars.

It has BMW Assist (and therefore, I believe, the telematics combox). It also has Connecteddrive listed in the idrive system. It has enhanced Bluetooth (I tested streaming audio over the BT) and the widescreen Nav.

It doesn't have a cradle, but I have used the dealer's "y" cable and got my iphone working but with no album art/ipod-out (just searchable via idrive). I didn't get a chance to test with a regular apple USB cable.

When I tried to use BMW Online, it said it couldn't connect.

With all of that in mind, I have 4 questions.

1) As it has BMW Assist, does the fact that connecteddrive is available in the idrive mean connecteddrive is installed/will work?

2) Could the reason for it not being able to connect just be that I would need to call BMW and get it activated?

3) Can I tether my Verizon LTE iPhone 5 to get internet connectivity?

4) What would I need in order to get BMW Apps?

Thanks in advance!
