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.

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 have this working on my F10 M5 - it is great. Still a little buggy, but I expect by the time it is released generally it will be sorted out.

A google search should sort that out . Keep in mind that it's a beta release and has bug/stability issues. If you're averse to pain then you may opt to wait for the general release in the Fall.
