Question 2007 328i

The 2007 3-series does not have it, but we can retrofit it too.
So, to get the 6NR I would need a Combox? Patrys, I just sent you an email please respond at the earliest. I have a jailbroken iPhone 4, getting this to work would be really sweet.

Thanks,
Sid

But now the E9x guys can celebrate - the mobile Internet finally available for the CIC

Okay, I'm a little behind the 8 ball. I have an e92 M3 manufacture date Dec 2007. I'd lik eto update this system to the CiC and dtich the old system. What parts are required? What is the cost? Is this DIY? Are there warranty issues etc? And, shipping costs to Canada or is there someone in Canada you deal with that can do this for me through you etc.

This is pretty awesome, even though I have a Droid phone from Motorola. Drove a loaner the other day with all these features and it was pretty cool none the less. E-mail sent so I can get an idea of how much I'm going to have to save up.

Hi All.

Just a question to Patrys:

When a car is fully equipped with Internet, Connected Drive, etc, like mi 2012 Z4 with the following options :

06AA BMW TeleServices
06AB Steuerung TeleServices
06NR Apps
06VC Steuerung Combox
0612 BMW Assist - Notruf, Auskunftsdienst, Pannenhilfe
0614 Internet
0615 Erweiterte BMW Online Information
0616 BMW Online - E-Mail und Adressen, Parkplätze, Börse, RSS-Feeds, Wetter, Hotels
0616
0620 Spracheingabesystem
07SP Navigationssystem Professional mit integrierter Handyvorbereitung Bluetooth
07HP Connectivity Paket
06FL ... (07HP) USB-Audio-Schnittstelle
06NF ... (07HP) Musik-Schnittstelle für Smartphones
0633 ...(07HP) Handyvorbereitung Business mit Bluetooth Schnittstelle »

If I well understand it is using the SIM in the Combox for the Internet in Idrive, and it is using the SIM of the Iphone for example for the Web radio App. Am I right ?

Is there a way to use the 3G of the phone for everything, avoiding the slow GPRS of the combox ?

If yes, does it need reprogramming ?

I and some friends here in Europe are interested.

Tx in advance.

If you retrofit the combox. How do you do the software updates? I assume if you download updates from BMW it asks for your vin number? But if your car didn't have an oem combox will it let you download updates for it from the web?

Thumbs up Combox Retrofit

I just had combox retrofit done on my 2011 X5M through Patryk and Bimmertech. Everything was as flawless as descried here. I received my shipment that included new Combox and all required wiring. Patryk e-mailed me step by step instructions, which if you follow only take about 30 minutes to install. I did installation myself in the garage. A day after installation I contacted Patryk who was able to program my car over the internet with me parked outside of a local coffee shop. He took control of my laptop that I connected to the car using supplied cable. Programming took about 10 minutes and now I have latest software on my iDrive and I am able to play tunes from my phone directly to the car via bluetooth, access BMW online, web browser (when parked), and most importantly I can read my blackberry e-mails on the iDrive screen!

Thanks to Bimmertech for great service!

Does you guys know how to active internet via bluetooth? I turned on tethering on my Sony xperia Z but my car tells me this when I try to turn on the internet tab:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/6zvbwllyjez6tu6/DSC_0032.jpg

I have aftermarket Combox telematik and I still have SOS Call System Failure even if the whole unit has been reprogrammed and VIN has been changed.
Can you tell me why it isn't working?
thanks.

6NR Retrofit for 2011 Alpina B7

I am new to this forum; so I apologize if I have the post in the wrong place. I am trying to find out if I can locate a vendor to retrofit my 2011 B7 with the 6NR update. My B7 was manufactured prior to March, 2011). From what I understand, one of the issues is finding a dealer who would sell the activation code.

My BMW mechanic is Brad Moyer who is the owner of Digital Chassis in Durham, N.C. He's very much a BMW guru; but thus far we have not been able to solve this puzzle.
