I've followed the instructions on this thread and changed up what's shown in pictures 4 and 5, but still get what's shown in pictures 2 and 3... Can't seem to get the functionality to work, even for one ignition cycle. Any thoughts?

UPDATE:

I've been able to get text messaging working on iDrive, but no e-mail. Anyone having difficulty should be sure to have "Show Notifications" turned on and to have "Office" checked under "Configure Bluetooth".

QUESTIONS:

1. How does this affect battery life? Aside from using Bluetooth for telephone calls and "Transferring Contacts", does this additional functionally wear the battery more so?

2. Is there a way to reply to incoming messages directly via iDrive instead of having to take your phone out of your pocket?

3. What does checking "Show Images" do?

4. Any advice on getting e-mail to work?

There is a bug in IOS6 vs iDrive and emails do not work, unless you go to notifications>email while connected and turn off then on each email notification and then emails work until you turn off the ignition, if I do this with each start then works.
Do u have an iPhone 5?, I do not get "show images" on my iDrive for my iPhone 4S.
Images should be for incoming calls picture ID, I guess.
There is no way you can reply by txt or tel call from a SMS.

There is a way to reply w/o taking phone out of your pocket - use Siri to send or reply to a text. Not a direct reply from iDrive, but will allow a text without holding the phone.

Txt now working on BMW office with iOS 6 iPhone

Please refer to the following link on the forum:

http://www.bimmerfest.com/news/64678...drive-display/

Interestingly enough, Txt messaging on AT&T iPhone now works after using the described set up. It works when phone is in or out of cradle, locked or unlocked.

Also interesting is that my email mailboxes show up but email remains broken.

The phone is running iOS 6 on a 4S and the BMW software has also been upgraded to the latest version on my '12 F02.

I also unpaired my phone in the BMW and on iPhone and then re paired everything to have a fresh install.

Hope this info helps!

Maybe Apple will fix iOS 6 to also work with email soon.

I have a 2012 535 07/2012 production, and i have tried everything mentioned here to connect my 4s (5.1.1) but nothing seems to work

Here are my details :

- MX-003.004.031
- have not run the latest update mentioned here but that was meant for IOS 6 but since I am running IOS 5 not sure if its going to make a difference
- i paired and re-paired the phone several time but nothing
- i also enabled 'Office' under 'Configure BT' in the idrive system
- i do not have an option for "notifications" on iphone under bluetooth>MY Car (blue arrow)
- Notifications are 'On' for Messages and Email as Alerts, Show Preview = ON, View in Lock Screen = ON, Badge App Icon = ON

What the heck is going on ??

Aman27, BMW office (SMS, Emails) only works with IOS6, if you have IOS5, you have to upgrade.

As long as you don't upgrade to 6.1.3 you can do untethered jailbreak below that version. 6.1.2 is the last untethered jailbreak available.

Nothing has changed from the older iOS to the most recent version, only text/SMS messages come through, but if you want to see e-mails you'll have to change the number of e-mails shown under "notification" each time on iPhone each time it is pair and disconnect from the car.

I have since ditched the iphone 5 and bought the HTC One which works seamlessly with BMW Office. All the emails, texts, and myinfo alerts are categorized as intended. Call Sender works on texts. Unfortunately, iOS7 beta has not made any improvements. bye bye apple.

No.

Unless you pay for full service (including dictation) in which you can dictate a reply.

Out of literally nowhere email finally started working today.

No re-pairing. No software update. Just randomly received email - phone was charging through cigarette lighter adapter but not plugged into the car via USB.

Prior to this only new/unread SMS worked.

Folks, tested on my system & noticed that the key is to enable the "View in Lock Screen".

Doesn't have to enable the "Show Preview".

This is for iOS 6.01.

I used to have SMS functionality with my iPhone 5, as well as with SGS2 and an old Nokia E52. After having my car's software globally updated recently, the iPhone SMS do not show any longer.

Is this the promised integration progress?

PS. Just to be more specific: at connection messages do try to load.... but after a while, "No messages with current filter" is displayed no matter what.

Sorry to bring an old thread back up, but I guess this is an ongoing discussion which won't ever be fully resolved.

I have found this jailbreak app... I have posted about it here: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=749672

Has anyone used this before?

Sunny.
