Getting emails on 2012 X5d

Just purchased 2012 X5d, with the BMW app include. Have an iPhone 4S worth io6 operating system. Cannot get emails in display. Only calendar. Have updated software in the x5. Does anyone know if the iPhone 4S with io6 synchs with the x5?

It seems to be pretty buggy right now... Do you have "Mail" option enabled in "Notifications" and did you enable "View in lock screen" option for it?

Every time your phone pairs with your car, go to notifications and for each email account, toggle the notification center off and then back on. This works every time for me. Then, as stated above, make sure the email accounts are set in "view in lock screen" and the phone is actually in the locked screen.

Remember that emails will not push to the email folder on the idrive. All texts and emails will push to the text message folder.

+1. Not sure the phone has to be locked to see it, but will test. But completely sure you have to toggle notifications every time you pair. OP - did you upload the 1005 update from BMW.com/update?

Also, only once did I get an email on idrive that I was able to see the whole email with scrolling down, like a BB. The email was a Bimmerfest thread reply notification. I don't know what I did to initiate that but unusually just get the first couple lines of the email followed by a "..."

Anyone else getting the entire email to the idrive screen or just the first few lines?

Update 1005 is still for IOS 5.

Emails have stopped working since IOS 6 Beta 4, Beta 3 emails worked OK.

We have to wait for an update from Apple to IOS 6 to fix the bug?
