Here's the step by step:

1. Go to Settings --> Notifications --> Mail --> Select any of your email accounts

2. Notification Center: ON

3. Alert Style: Banners or Alerts (I've only tested it to work with Banners...)

4. Show Preview: ON

5. View in Lock Screen: ON

I would suggest you delete the previously paired iPhone on iDrive, and remove the pairing on your iPhone too.

Re-pair the phone and iDrive.

You will get the notifications ONLY while the phone is locked (or screen is off). If you are testing this by sending an email to your iphone while you have your phone unlocked, you will never receive the notification on iDrive.

If you want to test it, lock your phone (or turn off the screen), or put it on the cradle, and wait a couple of minutes.

Then send yourself an email from your computer. You will see the notification on iDrive.

Hope this helps you out!

Alex, do you need the cradle? I plan on using my 4s with my new 2013 F10 with just the usb cable and I want to make sure I can access this functionality...
