F21 - Upgrade from 6NH to 6NK


A year ago i ordered my first BMW, a 120D.

I've ordered the Business Navigation (Code 606) and Hands-free function (bluetooth basic) incl. USB (6NH) including a lot of other equipment.

I did not notice that the 6NK (Bluetooth and USB with audio streaming) was a opportunity at the time I've ordered my car

I would like to upgrade my bluetooth, so I'm able to use bluetooth audio streaming.
I've contacted 2 dealerships in Denmark - and none of them is saying it is possible, unless i buy the professional navigation (which is pretty expensive in Denmark).
According to the equipment list from when i bought the car, it should be possible to buy the audio streaming feature, but now it's not possible for me to upgrade.

I've read of a few people who succeeded on coding the unit.

Any suggestions how to upgrade?

Best regards from Denmark,

I've just coded this exact same thing for a colleague in his F20 1 series.

He had the 606 business nav with 6NH basic bluetooth. There will be a combox in the boot so all you need to do is code a change the Vehicle Order to add 6NS, upload to the car and recode the COMBOX and HU_CHAMP modules to default values, this enables the extra bluetooth streaming functionality, dual connected phones, everything except album art, and you don't even need to buy a token for E-Sys to do it, just a comms cable and download the software.

ShawnSheridan is the go to man for the software, get a cable from ebay or another member and the instructions to do the above are fairly readily available, though a little disjointed (as I found out myself yesterday). PM me if you want simple step by step instructions how to achieve this.

Happy to help a fellow newbie with coding.
