BMW apps: Is it enabled by coding?

I'm looking at a 2011 E92 without BMW apps, but was wondering if this just something that can be coded or is it an actualy hardware piece?

Thanks.

Can the hardware be retrofitted (and software modified) for an '11 that was produced prior to BMW apps being offered?

The answer to your question have been posted several times in the electronics forum.

Thank you for your help. I now realize I should have done a search prior to asking the question, but you see, I'm retarded.

Thanks for the info and link. The problem with the Electronics section is all the damn abbreviation. I don't know what they hell they all mean.

I did a search and found that thread but didn't know if the apps could be coded on the newer cars or if there was also hardware. Thanks Technic.
