Sorry if this is an ignorant question, but what is a Combox and how do I know if I have it? I remember seeing it on the dealer sticker for an F12 I was looking at, but I brushed it off as non-essential since I didn't see it on the options and packages list.

Was looking at some upgrade software on Bimmertech and it requires a Combox for no further hardware install.

Thanks in advance!

I think that is the snap in adapter to give your car Internet access, videos, cover art, etc. I vaguely remember this and I could be wrong.

i guess the option you saw on the sticker was "BMW Apps"?

Thanks for the replies. Yes, It did say Apps and I definitely have Apps but I am 1000% sure it also said Combox, I think it said "Combox Controller" to be exact. It's in my email somewhere, i will search for it. Thanks again

Ok found this out from my service manager. If you have Apps, you have the Combox. It's what allows the snap in adapter to do what it does

Thom.one.two was pretty much correct
