Internet

Ok for those who have the 2012 cars, can you get full internet in the car or is it still this "BMW Connected drive crap".

2012

Not sure if I have the 2012 car (got it september 1st), but I got pretty much every option on there (all that 6NF stuff and the connected drive hooked up etc..).

It's crap to be honest with you, better using my iPhone.

Speaking of which - did you know if you get the 'office' feature via that 6NF code, or whatever it is these days, you have to then buy a cradle to stick your smartphone into the arm rest? Their excuse is that the car is prepped, and because phones differ you have to buy the cradle yourself. About 70, but since the iPhone doesn't share calendars / messages in the office feature, not really worth it :-/

Bluetooth is OK though.
