Anyway, on reflection, I'm not too bothered about it. If I need Assist, it's right there on my phone, and if I need google send to car, I use the iphones standard google map app.

I'd be hard-pressed to lose Google's send-to-car functionality. I use that at least once a week...

Crap -- I really want the updated iDrive software too.

if kscarrol has the combox, can't he just get the connected apps coded in via bimmertech or any other coder that has the ability to do so..

from what you (technic) posted in your other thread regarding other thread about bimmertech and connected apps, all one with combox equipped vehicles (pre or post MY3/11) would need is an enabling code and coding features...am I incorrect or only MY3/11+ vehicles can get connected apps via coding...)

Any Combox-equipped iDrive can be coded for 6NR. The new condition is that if the software version is 43-on then FSC are required.

BimmerTech can provide those now.

stega,

Out of curiosity, what does having assist have to do with x-cross or tracking the car?

Technic,

Have you heard of anyone successfully getting their Assist account transferred after performing this retrofit?

There is a forum member of the E90Post that did it...

Smile Installing Combox in a 2009 335i convertible

Hello everyone. I am new in this forum and I must say it is a very helpful forum for a weekend geek like me wanting to mod my newly acquired 2009 335i convertible.

Couple of questions/clarifications:
1. Where to buy the Combox telematics?
2. Who can assist in the coding needed?

Thanks in advance.

Contact forum vendor BimmerTech as stated in the very first post.

Absoultely. The most bus is a loop which will be broken if connections arent terminated. I imagine you could also delete the connection at the distribution block as long as you can isolate it.

Thanks for the quick reply!

I will be replacing the MULF & TCU with the Combox Media (telematics isn't available in my country, that's why i'll go for the Media version). Will i be needing just 1 fiber termination connector with this operation?

Also, can someone please post the part no. for that round fiber termination connector? i can't find it anywhere ...

Hello.
I have 09 e90 with CIC. I was looking in to getting the combox 6NR retrofitted... I was told I would lose BMW assist.

So there is a way to retain all the BMW assist function with the retrofit? How can one transfer their BMW assist account over to the new combox?

Thank you


Thank you
