2011 BMW e92 M3  [4.55]
Thumbs up Finally! BMW Office (iDrive Email & Text Message) Integration with iPhone on iOS6

Good news for iPhone users. iOS6 is finally supporting iDrive Office integration via Bluetooth MAP(Message Access Profile). Bluetooth MAP is the protocol used to retrieve email messages through iDrive, which currently only works with Blackberry and a few other devices.

Couple shots of my wireless non USB connection using my iPhone 4S with iOS6 Beta 1. iOS6 Beta 1 is still a little buggy but this is a great start. I suspect the (Sender Unknown) header will be fixed with the next beta release.

I am also running the latest Connected Drive Bluetooth and USB update from BMW. BMW Update Link

Update 06/25/2012: *iOS6 Beta 2 released today. *The senders name now displays in the message header. *SMS Messages are still flagged as Email and not text messages but are still readable and functional.

Update 09/19/2012: iOS6 GM was released today. Only SMS messages are currently working with the release. Email messages are currently not working.

Do you have BMW Apps? Or is this something we would see regardless of that (as long as you have the most up to date combox version).

No you wouldn't need Apps as the functionality is not under the Apps section of the iDrive.

I have a 2011 M3. Would I just need iOS6 and the updated iDrive software to run this? I'm not quite sure if I have iDrive Office...

You should have Office in your main menu. Software update is most easily done via vehicle settings in iDrive.

There's no Combox in your 2010 M3. Search for the Combox retrofit for details.

I also have the Beta of IOS 6 and noticed the new e-mails show up on my iDrive. But unfortunatley it only shows the name and not the actual message, it just sits at loading... and never shows the e-mail message. I have a 2011 335i convertible. I downloaded the bluetooth update, but my TX software only shows 2.xx not 3.xx.

I dont have the media apps, or the cradle, but i do have Bluetooth Audio, premium package, BMW assist, etc...

I have noticed that it will only display UNOPENED/UNREAD email and SMS items at this point. Not sure if that is bug or by design.


Did your download produce file UPD01004.BIN? There is VIN check before download and it may produce different files for different vehicles.

My car was a 3/2011 production btw.

yea, not sure what makes one car have 3.5.4 vs another car staying at 2.6.4. Do you have Multimedia apps and the cradle?

My car shows only MX-002.005.025 and TX-002.006.004, both seem to be up to date according to the doc... So not sure why only the header is shown in the e-mail rather than the entire message. How do i find my production mo/yr?

Hi Tip and others. Do you really get the emails to display? I have struggled with this now. SMS, reminders and notifications works fine. All shows up as messages as expected, but no emails. Have also tired to send new emails to iPhone while connected to Idrive. No show.

Have iOS 6 beta 2 and latest update to Idrive.

Any suggestions ?

Regards Ulo

Tjena, Hur Laget!!!

If you are testing for emails the email app on the phone must be running in the background for it communicate to the iDrive and send new notifications. If you are actively sending emails through the phone while connected to the car it will not send an email message to the car. Does that make sense? Have someone send you an email from another phone or PC while you car connected.
