I do not have a combox in the boot. I have a 2012 318d Sport with I believe the basic idrive display. It has DAB, Bluetooth phone and usb ports in arm rest. I am looking at retrofitting the NBT as I would ideally like enhanced audio and like the idea of the apps and connect drive. Is there a simple way of doing this or could anyone recommend anyone local?

Thanks

Broken bluetooth pairing after 6NH to 6NS

I have successfully coded 6NS from the factory 6NH in my July 2014 F32. FA (VO) coding has been done for HU_ENTRY and CMB_MEDIA. For some reason, I do not have a combox in the trunk, or at least not in a visible place. Beneath a foldable cover there are two deep storage boxes but no sign of combox. I cannot check what is under the carpet material unless doing some brute force intervention.

The problem came after a successful coding: the mobile phone was not pairing anymore through Bluetooth. On both sides, in the car and in my mobile menu I deleted the previous BT connections. Re-pairing was not possible, I subsequently ended up in a time-out message.

I almost gave up and wanted to re-code factory settings but ... after a number of trials I did find a solution: the bluetooth authentication works if I type 0-1-2-3-4-5 in the car during the pairing process. As a response, the iPhone pups-up a dial page where the same code must be entered, e voila, the connection works immediately.

I think the car software has either a bug in the configuration which I ended up, or in default 6NS settings BT authentication goes in a failsafe mode which allows connection only with such a 'master code'.

The same solution did work for a second mobile, pairing with exactly with the same code.

Did anybody else experienced the same problem? Is there a parameter to change in CMB_MEDIA or HU_ENTRY which enables standard BT pairing?

Pretty sure you have a combox. Pull cover up and towards you as if you were taking the trunk cover out of the car. You'll then be able to see your fuse box on the right and combox on left

Hello!

I just bought a pre owned 2013 328i Sport line with NAV. Canadian model.

I assumed that in 2013 bluetooth audio would be pretty standard. I was wrong..

Bluetooth phone work but not music audio.

This thread seems to be the solution. However, I am missing the following info:

Can I do it myself?
What wire / software do I need to buy?
Where is the port to connect to?

Thanks a lot.

I hear that you can maintain it after dealer programming if you save the modified vehicle order to the car but no one has been able to confirm that yet.
Wait what? So if we get this coded, it resets back to default after service? Does this void warranty? I'm really considering this IF it's permanent and untraceable (warranty).

It should not void warranty either way. I've enabled Satellite Radio and BMW Apps for several people here and I permanently wrote the new option codes to their vehicle order and they were able to keep these options after a software update from the dealer without any implications on warranty. Extended Bluetooth should be the same.

how do you "permanently code" something as opposed to any other way?

Thanks! That's really good to know! Now to find a Seattle coder!
