So what am I missing in my '11 335i?

I recently sold my '06 330xi and bought this newer car that has is a sport model with X-Drive, Nav and so forth, but mine had an early build date that year (Jan. 2, 2011) and there were supposedly some changes to the system that were available sometime later that year.

I recently updated my Nav maps to 2015 ($50 to one of the guys on here) and loaded the free BMW updates to the audio system, but I saw something (can't remember where) about being able to view texts and e-mail on my screen and it appears mine doesn't have that functionality. And, yes, I have RTFM!

Any help you could offer would be appreciated. I'm an older guy so I'm not quick with some of the tech issues, but I'm not a newbie either.

Thanks!

In order to view text/email on the CID, you need a COMBOX..Honestly I find it pretty lame anyways but to each their own..Either you can remove the trunk lid, look for a silver module with ridges on top,right in front of the storage bin or send me the last 7 of ur vin and I can look it up

I guess I'll have to pass on it.

Mine has a Combox as I did the VIN search on my own, but since the only 'extras' I would get are text and e-mail, there's really no point.

Thanks for the advice and have a good one.
