Does your Office show your phone contacts? If not, you could have 2010 programming like I had. Look at your iDrive main screen. Does one of the lines say "BMW Assist" or "ConnectedDrive"?

My office shows my phone contacts and the main menu has BMW assist. My wife's 535i has connecteddrive andI can't get either oneto work. I checked the box office in the bluetooth setup as well. Any ideas

If you have a 2011 and your menu shows BMW Assist, you likely have a 2010 program installed in your vehicle. I just had my entire vehicle reprogrammed and now it shows "ConnectedDrive" which is correct for the 2011. BMW admits the old menu was for the 2010. If you check out the BMW owners site and look at the owners manual, compare the 2010 and 2011 and you'll note the difference.

My car in Europe showed my messages in the "Office" section, but here in the US it has stopped. The Contacts still show up as normal. I wouldn't say I've missed the feature though it is curious that it stopped working.

If you have nav in the car, at least some stuff needs to be reprogrammed upon entry to the US. They might just redo the whole thing, and, if it wasn't the latest, you could have it with older firmware than the factory put in in Europe.

I am taking my X5 in on Friday to get the update, but I can't get my wife's 535ix to work and her car has the connecteddrive. I have checked the box office in the bluetooth setup on the phone and it still won't work. Any ideas
