^^This.

Pelican Parts is an incredible resource, especially if you are a 911 owner.

Not sure I agree here - my work blackberry works fine with emails and messages, and I get around 150 / day. I just have the system read them to me if I'm underway. Very handy.

My 2011 has it. Pisses me off, but I just started touching the back door to lock. The small time it takes to get there is apparently the same as the delay.

I think it should be fixed, too. This is...

Same problem happened to me, it's documented in another thread. They had to re-do to the whole SIB to get the BMW Apps / Connected Drive portion to work.

Good luck!

Also, if you have an older iPod plugged in via glovebox USB, you might want to try unplugging it. Had this issue some time back with a 40 Gig click-wheel vintage unit.

I'll also try the guidance the next time I'm headed back to Savannah from HHI. Oh, by the way, if you're by the entrance to Sea Pines, walk a little further back and try the brewery. :thumbup:
