It is partially compatible. I have an iPhone 5 and on my (factory ) EBT I get text messages... Though, not emails or calendar.

How do you achieve/use that function?

Go to office-messages. Click right and turn on extra Bluetooth settings.

Either that or set up Bluetooth in the audio menu. Again push the iDrive right to access.

Do you get voice control also? If so, just say messages...

Messages only display when a new one comes in. Icon in top right of screen.

On your iPhone, go to notifications and turn everything on. I have it set to:
Alerts and 10 items in the notification centre...

Cool i'll try this in a bit.

I don't think i have voice control though, i've pressed the button on steering wheel but it does nothing. I thought maybe it only works on pro nav, do you have it on your non nav?

I've got voice control. But on a non-navigation car it's a tad limited...

But, it at least saves ranching through the iDrive for each menu or function. Apparently the BMW lady in the dashboard will read the message out also. Though I've never remembered to try. Just read it off the iDrive screen.

I probably only say things like 'Journey Computer' or 'Messages' often. Finding specific iPhone audio tracks doesn't seem to work and the steering wheel roller only works if you've set playback off in certain ways. I need to spend some time playing with it...

Having a play and messages and voice control both don't work!

Any idea if others who have coded EBT get voice control?

I do but I have Pro Nav. FYI, It doesn't make any difference (on my iPhone 5 anyway) how the message alerts are set-up to get text messages. They will arrive anyway. It's only critical for emails although I've had no success so far and I don't really need emails when I'm driving. Nice to have a few minutes off
My voice control is very good actually and it's funny when Mrs. BMW reads out a text message! - depending on content of course

So you didn't have to change anything else to get voice control?

Rich has voice control on non nav so surely i should have it on bus nav!?

Nope. It's very intuitive actually. Although every now and then she brings up the wrong command...

Can you get Siri working through your steering wheel? Press and hold the VC button...

I don't have a car yet, so I obviously do not know, but I noticed you said you coded 6NK with your Bus Nav, I think you need 6NS to get the full voice control.

The description of 6NS is "Convenience telephony with extended smartphone connectivity", 6NK says "Connection, Bluetooth and USB devices". The basic 6NH says "Hands-free facility with USB interface"

6NS is for NBT pro nav (which doesn't have a combox) 6NK is for cars with the combox.

I have now managed to activate basic voice recognition, which is just like my E90 had it appears, just to dial numbers or call entries which have been manually saved by saying the persons name to store it.

Might try 6NS just in case, but i highly doubt it will work!

6NS is the option I ordered for my non-nav car, I guess that means they will add a combox with the entry HU. I'll find out in a couple of months when it shows up.
Perhaps Rich9600 can tell us, in this thread he said he has EBT (6NS) with a entry HU.

It might not - but it could perhaps still explain the difference in functionality - perhaps the most you can get in your HW configuration is the 6NK functionality.

Right I will give 6NS a try! Maybe, just maybe these newer combox's that have been fitted since September have the 6NS ability!

Laptop is dead now though so have to wait for it to charge!

I have Business Nav and an Android phone rather than an iPod. Will I gain anything from coding EBT?

2. On step 3 you need to press 'save' after pressing 'read' to enable the 'edit' button

3. On step 6 change 6NH to 6NK (6NH to 6NS on NBT pro media)

4. Once all steps are complete: go back to expert mode, Coding =>
right click FA and select activate FA =>
click Read SVT =>
Right Click on HU_CHAMP2 (HU_NBT for NBT Pro Media) (the ECU itself not the underlying CAFD) =>
Select CODE

Right-Click on CMB_Media (step not required for NBT pro media) (again the ECU itself not the underlying CAFD) =>
Select CODE

5. Click disconnect, done!

6. In idrive go to 'telephone' => 'Bluetooth telephone' => highlight your phone => press option or click right => go down and select 'configure Bluetooth' =>
tick all the options => go back => go up to your phone and select it => tick audio

now go to 'media' => 'external devices' => your phone will now be an option to play audio from! Either change track back or forward with idrive or control
from your phones screen.

Of course you will also now have Album art from USB stick and iphone through lightning cable, and also full control of music library from iphone using lightning cable. through idrive.

That's awesome - maybe ask you nicely if you could do mine when it arrives ~2 months!

Sure can. Although your car will have the updates so there may not be new enough psdzdata for e-sys to work.
