iDrive to display Asian characters?

Not sure if anyone has asked this question here before, but iDrive on my 2011 car displays Chinese song names as little square shapes which obviously are not readable.

I was told had my car come with BMW app, I could buy a module to display Asian characters properly?

Anyone else has this issue / a solution?

If you have ipod dock in center console and use plug in, it displays your ipod language. Hope this helps

Plug in feature is enabled when you put your iphone in center console dock.

Something like this?

You need Combox and 6NR to have "Plug-In" feature, under ConnectedDrive Menu.

I have US spec M3 and am in US.

You can display Chinese as well after Combox + 6NR retrofit.

I just have Combox + 6NR retrofit done on my car, that's all.
