BMW connected app (for 6NR) now on app store

All


Just noticed the connected drive app has been on the app store since 10 december. This is for 3/2011 builds with option "6NR" apps.

Heres the link:

Maybe a bit early to be asking this but any idea if a retrofit will be available for option code "6NR" (for post-September 2010 builds)? Is "6NR" software or additional hardware?

Hard to say. Seems like the combox should have this covered. The app accepts data from the mileage computer and has internet radio stations. Thats all for now but surely more to come


Btw the internet radio portion wotks very well. Pretty good SQ

Appears to also have room for future vehicle diagnostics

This better work on post-Sep 2010 builds or I'll be . Not sure what software updates this Combox thing would be good for if it isn't for things like this!

I also hope it can be retrofitted for post Sep '10 build. I ordered a new vehicle in Dec which comes in, in about a week and was under the assumption that since the vehicles post Sep were shipping with the new combox I would be good.

However, I was just forwarded the official PDF announcement from BMW this morning about the new ConnectedDrive and iPod Out features and the very last line of the announcement states.

"Note: It will not be possible to retrofit 6NR on vehicles produced prior to 3/11 (4/11 for X models)."

I'm really hoping that's not the case .

I'll post up the PDF a little later today when I get home.

Here is the note from BMW of 6NR not being able to be retrofitted from their announcement.

6NR No Retrofit Mention

Is that the only info on 6NR in the bulletin or was there more you can share in a PDF or JPG?

That is sad if no retrofit is made available by BMW. Running changes are always heartbreakers but seems this one should have been retrofitable or at least better coordinated with the combox introduction.

If nothing else perhaps a company like BimmerRetrofit will offer an upgrade path to give combox USB iPod integrated cars access to the BMW app goodness?
