Thanks Shawm, just trying to determine why I'm missing that FLE file.

SVT is pulled directly from the car, so it would not matter whether they are present in Psdzdata until you "Read Coding Data."

I figured that too but wasn't sure. The SA said they programmed the car with the latest update (all my coding was deleted so i assume they did) and just picked up the car last Friday. Maybe the new versions or my version does not have that module anymore?
Don't know where to go since the data is being read from the car

Enhanced BT

I was able to get everything up and running for coding my I01 this morning. Right out of the gate, though, I ran into a little snag trying to get Enhanced Bluetooth set up. I read out the VO and went in to remove 6NH and add 6NS, but there was no 6NH entry (2017 i3 Rex, Professional Nav). I went ahead and added 6NS, wrote it in, and then recoded HU_NBT. I've noted a few changes (such as the "1" indicator on paired phones), but I cannot figure out how to get messages configured from my phone- I checked both the BT setup in iDrive (only phone and audio show up) as well as my phone (paired it again to see if it would update the configuration).

Has anyone seen this, or can you point me in the right direction for troubleshooting this and getting the messages functionality in place?

IPhone or Android? Sometimes you have to unpair and re-pair phones.

Okay, I found the "BlueTooth Config" option in iDrive and turned on Office and Phone 2. Alas it appears that my e92's combox is more capable with the iPhone than is the i3; still no option to push even SMS notifications to the iDrive.

It works on newer vehicles, just Android is more consistent.

Mine is a late December 2016 build date. Can't get much newer than that.

I had similar issue with not getting any sms notifications in my i3 even though everything seemed to be setup correctly.
What worked for me was to go into the iPhone settings > Bluetooth, then click the (i) next the the Bluetooth-name of your car. On the page that loads be sure to have "Show notifications" enabled. I also have "Sync contacts" enables, but it shouldn't make a difference.

Odd that it was a couple days later before the "Show Notifications" option appeared on the phone, and now text messages are making it to the car, though the BlueTooth setting on the car side doesn't show Office as an option still. Thanks for your help (and patience!).

I've recently bought an i3 rex and was looking for details for coding it. I have a connector, just need software links if possible. Thanks.

That's Great thanks. While I'm being lazy, is there a way to update the navigation software?
