iDrive Office features

Has anybody been able to get the Office features to work? I have both an iPhone and a Win7 phone. I've connected both via Bluetooth and USB. Neither gives me any calendar data or task data as shown in the press releases. Their lousy online guide shows all the features but doesn't tell you how to get any of them working. I also don't have any news feature.

While the A2DP works great, I'm not getting any track info as shown in the guide. In fact, it clearly says, "no track data received," on my iDrive console. I suppose this is an issue with the phone, but there is no list of compatible phones and BMW always identifies the iPhone as the preferred device.

I also apparently need an account for features such as Google send to car. I don't see anywhere to create such an account though.

Finally, I am getting some traffic data but is this the much vaunted RTTI?

Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.
