2011 BMW e92 M3  [4.55]
Thumbs up iPhone iOS6 Integrates with BMW Office (iDrive Email & Text Message) via Bluetooth!

Good news for iPhone users. iOS6 is finally supporting iDrive Office integration via Bluetooth MAP(Message Access Profile). Bluetooth MAP is the protocol used to retrieve email messages through iDrive, which currently only works with Blackberry and a few other devices.

Couple shots of my wireless non USB connection using my iPhone 4S with iOS6 Beta 1. iOS6 Beta 1 is still a little buggy but this is a great start. I suspect the (Sender Unknown) header will be fixed with the next beta release.

I am also running the latest Connected Drive Bluetooth and USB update from BMW. BMW Update Link

Update 06/25/2012: iOS6 Beta 2 released today. The senders name now displays in the message header. SMS Messages are still flagged as Email and not text messages but are still readable and functional.

Update 09/19/2012: iOS6 GM was released today. Only SMS messages are currently working with the release. Email messages are currently not working.

Do you have BMW Apps? Or is this something we would see regardless of that (as long as you have the most up to date combox version).

No you wouldn't need Apps as the functionality is not under the Apps section of the iDrive.

I have a 2011 M3. Would I just need iOS6 and the updated iDrive software to run this? I'm not quite sure if I have iDrive Office...

You should have Office in your main menu. Software update is most easily done via vehicle settings in iDrive.

There's no Combox in your 2010 M3. Search for the Combox retrofit for details.

I have a 2011 built summer of 2010. I do not recall a combox (nor know what that is).

I didn't think we could get apps on a 2011 and older M3.

BMW Apps is not required for this feature. Currently you would need BMW Apps to view Calendar events on the iDrive via the iPhone.

Prerequisites are:
  • Combox - Factory installed 09/10-on production and higher
  • Bluetooth Paired iPhone
  • iOS6

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.

I have a 9/2010 M3 and iOS 6 (10A5316K) and it doesn't seem to work. What year is your car?

Edit looks like my iPhone is supporting MAP based on the services it offers when pair to my mac pro;

I did the USB update from the BMW site but it shows as SW version: TX-002.006.004-002.005. Can I update to 3.5.4 like the OP?

The bin file (UPD01004.bin) contains two builds/versions. I'm guessing that one build is for media enabled cars or extended features (BMW Apps etc) and the other/older for non-media vehicles.
