Bmwretrofit,

Any new on when you are releasing the full USA combox telematics retrofit. It seems you were successful in the retrofit while keeping the original BMW assist account. It also mentions you will have a new adapter in the march (date?) package.

ello888: Thank you for your comment. We are aware of this issue. Actually this is due to the hardware-coding issue. Once CIC is installed and coded in real environment of the target vehicle everything will be displayed correctly.

kikdown: As to my knowledge at present time there is no Bulgarian language support in CIC. I am sure it will be released in the near soon, especially because it is uses same Cyrillic letters as Russian one, which is supported.

Dregonix: Yes correct, we got some success in our tests with Telematics version of the Combox. We should be able to release the product by the end of the month. Also we are waiting for the 6NR to be fully released for E series in order to have a good offer to our customers.


Thank you for reading, commenting and suggesting

Hello,

I own a BMW E90 in June 2008. This one has the navigation pro and blutooth,
Can you tell me what kit it takes to have exactly the same thing (that works) and what options are available.
Sorry I do not understand English too and your site is not necessarily very clear.
I could surf?
steering remote work?
voice recognition?
front and rear radar work (PDC)? (no camera, a simple radar)
Bluetooth Audio? (androidPhone and iphone)
SMS via bluetooth?
Video while I drive?
Installation is it complicated?
Possible to have the PDF assembly before purchase, to realize the difficulty?

How it happens at BMW?
obligation to return the old model or no problem for them?

This is google translation, thank you for your reply.

You are in Canada, You speak french?

bmwretrofit: can you clarify on the following?

-have you been able to find a source within BMW that will link your BMW Assist account to your new Combox IMEI? if so, will this source also take care of other customers?
-how does the internet function? does it use your BMW Assist account to receive data or does it require that your iPhone 4 has a tethering plan?
-does any of the above information change for US customers?

thanks!

Good day everyone and Thank you for reading!


We are happy to announce that after few days of successful tests we finaly present Connected Drive Solution, which is now available for E6x, E7x and E9x series BMW vehicles equipped with CIC and Combox hardware !!!



BMW ConnectedDrive.
Life is in motion.
BMW ConnectedDrive is a concept from the BMW Group that develops the technology of tomorrow for the automobiles of today. Its focus is on connecting the driver to their vehicle and to their world in an intelligent manner.
BMW ConnectedDrive comprises five services: BMW Assist, BMW Online, BMW Tracking, BMW TeleServices and in-vehicle internet access, the sum of which provides you with a unique range of mobility - the best possible combination of safety, comfort and driving pleasure.

BMW AG (C) Copyrighted




In despite BMW Officially says that this option is now available only for E9x Series (in E-Series line) and will become available for E7x series only in late April we may definitely say: It is already available for E7x series when ordered from Bimmer Retrofit.

Nothing special in terms of hardware.
Minimum requirements will be:

- CIC with latest software on board
- Combox with latest software on board
- 6FL (USB) or Snap In adapter
- Any standard white Apple cable or special iPhone BMW Cable
- Proper coding

That’s it




This and many others solutions are now offered by BMW Retrofit to all of our customers across the globe !

Stealership just said I need a new CCC unit which will cost me $1,300. This has me seriously considering a retrofit for a few $300 more. Does it really include EVERYTHING I need, no hassles?

I would jump on this in a heartbeat (I have a 328i xDrive early 2010 model, so no COMBOX...all I want is to be able to bitsream my music from an iPod!! Oh and iPod out would be lovely too )
but...my CPO warranty isn't going to expire until 2015, : and I've got a really good feeling this would void that puppy. But, I still support your awesome work, and I assure you, if any component on my CIC fails and BMW drags their feet on replacing it, I will most certainly use it as an excuse to order your kit!

I emailed them asking about BMW Assist. Their reply: "Unfortunately we cannot keep BMW Assist at this time while using and offering Combox Media only.
Please come back in late May-June and we will be happy to offer a solution which will allow you to keep BMW Assist while switching to the Combox."

So, if we can be patient for another couple of months, we should have BMW Assist integration too.

BMW Assist integration for North American Combox Telematics units is comming soon. We work on this hard during past couple month.
There are few opened questions left at the moment and the most important is the: clean and proper transfer of the existed BMW Assist account to the new hardware.
We do not want to release any solution which is not complete yet.
