I tried it. Didn't seem to change anything related to email although it states:

Software update (MX-3.5.4, TX-3.5.6)
Content
> Office: Improved support for email mes- sages. Improved display of text-message sender on iPhone devices with iOS6.



But I haven't bothered to un-pair and then re-pair my phone. That may be a necessary step. Southy: This is your bailiwick. Let us know if you can figure it out.

Reminder has been set on my phone, so I'll do my best to investigate tonight. As far as I'm concerned, e-mail is useless until they get rid of the current switch off then on flaw. Too much of a bother.

I've been using 6.1 and haven't noticed any difference. I've lost hope. When they get it to work, great, but every update seems as futile as the one before it.... Disappointing.

Texts work but e-mails don't (without going into iPhone settings and switching the notifications off then back on).

Congrats on the new car

You only get texts that come through after the phone is connected to the car (i.e. old stuff won't show up).

Also, you can try iPhone settings > Notifications > Messages, and keep the Notification center on (and I keep everything else on that menu kept on).

I've given up on e-mails as I can't be bothered to switch notifications on and off every time I get in the car. I'll wait for BMW and/or Apple to get this fixed, and then I'll try again.

Great! Glad it worked!

BMW often knows less about their cars than the guys around here. Sad but true.

Any notification (emails, whatsapp, viber, bank,...) that you switch off and then on with each start will start transferring to the iDrive office under SMS messages. It is a real pain to do each time.

Getting text thanks to Southern, but still no email. Question; what type of email are you referring too, for example, MS Exchange? Gmail? Both?

Thank you!

Wink Any email from your iPhone

You get the notifications from your iphone emails, gmail app, whatsapp, viber, your bank apps, ...
It is a real pain, and I do not do this, but if every time your phone connects to the iDrive office, you turn any apps notification off and then on, you will start receiving your app notifications in the SMS inbox until you turn engine off, then you will have to repeat it with each start.

Seems like the only phone it will work perfectly with is a blackberry. I might get a blackberry to keep in the car at all times just for email. It would really help to see at least the subject line on the idrive while driving so that I don't need to pull out the phone.

BMW is blaming Apple for the compatibility issues. The iPhone 5 snap-in cradle is not available yet in the US; however, even with the snap-in cradle.... Emails and Video Playback still don't appear on the iDrive Display.

Please keep me in the loop if someone finds out when and how to get this all to work.

When I enter the last 7 digits of my 650ic VIN @ BMW.COM/software update, I get a message of invalid number, guessing is down, cannot check if there is an update for the iDrive as well
