Apple is the one who doesn't allow emails to be displayed. No software update from BMW will change that

I applied the software update, no noticeable difference. Email still does not work (iPhone 5 iOS 6.02). As per previous post, email is a Apple issue.

The PDF states the following in the S/W update notes:
"Multimedia: Improved display of additional album and track information. Improved connection and control in Bluetooth audio devices."
Does anyone know what are the improvements?

I am incorrect. I went a little deeper into the CD menu options and found the iPod. iPod classic works perfectly with the new software.

Sorry that I posted before fully investigating the problem.

Same issue, only phone and bluetooth audio work. Which code allows for texts? (i.e. what is the number for "2 back". Curious if I can go back beyond what was loaded when I bought my car this summer.

Did the upgrade, all is the same as it is before. If I turn notifications off then on again for emails once the iphone is connected, it works just like it did before, and texts still work. The only difference I am seeing is that on my Android, the Galaxy Nexus, I no longer have to turn bluetooth off and on on the phone for it to connect...so that is a slight improvement....but no M A P functions on the Android, even though I thought 4.1.1 should have had the function.

Stupid update system - I know for certain I don't have the most current, yet...

I got the same ERROR and I am running v. 1.02

The update is for 1.12

What gives? Does anyone have a last 7 VIN # we can use to download the software?

Since I'm pre-Combox my thinking is that it's only for Combox cars.

Mine requires an overnight/6 hour dealer visit for any and all software upgrades.
