I have been going crazy today trying to sync these in.

Can anyone help I have tried both the USB and the cradle.

Didn't the dealer offer to set this up for you?

I had to run out. He showed me several things, and I am in pretty good shape. I think this has something to do with BMW assist being set up. I know that is what it takes to get email messages from google maps. In any event if I don't get it by monday i will call my dealer.

Did you install Connected Drive on your iPhone? You also need the cradle to get them synced up. Not sure if the Y-cable will work. I use the iPhone app with the cradle to get my calendar, etc. I've not seen email though. Just calendar, contacts, twitter, fb and web radio.

Yep got connected drive for BMW Apps on my iphone and the cradle. I did finally get calendar and web radio to sync. I could swear we should get messages, but possibly they wont work with iphone 4 or Blackberry torch, HOWEVER, you can see video's on the net with the blackberry torch.

Well, it took all weekend but I got my emails from my blackberry and my calendar from my iphone. Both will do contacts. It took a deep dive into the bluetooth settings and then having two phone configured there is a swap option. :thumbup:

Unfortunately you can't get e-mail or text messages using an IPhone. Hopefully BMW will address this issue if we complain enough.
You see the finally added HUD as a standalone. I'm so disappointed.
