Blackberry OS7 and BMW office

Hi all,

i just got my new F31 with the 2014 iDrive Professional with Connecteddrive. What I cannot get to work at all is the email and SMS integration of my Blackberry Bold 9790 on the iDrive.

I have found the 'options' menu in Bluetooth but there is only a 'telephone' box i can tick, no 'email' or 'office' or anything else.

somewhere I read that Blackberry OS7 is no longer compatible, while OS6 was. The BMW compatibility website also only mentions OS6 as the compatible version for my Blackberry Bold 9790.

Is there anybody that got the Blackberry OS7 to work with the 2014 iDrive?

thanks! Constantijn

Not sure about the new 2014 Idrive, but blackberry 7 worked fine on my 2013 Idrive (changed to a BlackBerry 10 device earlier this year which also works fine)

Hi,

I found the MAP options in the BB and set all the tickboxes. However, when I go into the iDrive Bluetooth options I only have the 'telephone' box.

Well, I am going to check if it does work with a Galaxy 3 from a friend of mine. That way I can see whether it is the car or the phone.

thanks!
