How do I enable BMW Apps? (Think I already have combox)

Hi guys,

Sorry for the double post, I did originally post this within the Idrive section of the forum but unfortunately haven't received a response. With that in mind I thought I would post it where my fellow British citizens may spot it and offer a peal of wisdom .

Anyway...I was hoping to figure this out using past posts but im really struggling to identify what exactly I need to do to get BMW apps, internet etc. enabled on my e92.

Below is a copy of my cars spec sheet. Is it likely just a coding issue to enable the above or do I need a hardware upgrade?

Car currently has the following software versions:
Multimedia: MX-001.012.000
Telephone: TX-001.010.021

Many Thanks,

Russ

Start with the basics, do you have the BMW app on your iPhone?
Have you plugged it into the USB in the arm rest?

Thanks for the reply Dest.

I do indeed have the app and I have plugged my phone into the USB in the armrest. The phone begins charging but the app has no connection to the car.

In addition to my previous post my car also has a2dp bluetooth streaming as well as having an option to chose BMW online but I receive a message informing me the system cannot connect.

I think you need a software update on the CIC and combox.
Mine are:

My car is a March 2010 car so going by ptpending's post above it wont have a combox. A little confusing with the build sheet specifying combox.

I guess the best option is going to be to root around in the cars boot, find the "combox" or whatever is installed and get some pics/model number etc.

Until I do that there is always going to be an element of playing guessing games.

Just have a look under the false boot floor, it will only take a few seconds.
You're after something like this

Just been out to take a pic of the mystery box in the boot. Unfortunately, im not at home at the minute so don't have a socket set to hand to unbolt the box to get a pic of the hw number etc.

Just been out and slackened the mystery box off to revel its model number etc. Anyone know if this should support apps or not? If so, how?

Thanks,

Russ

Do you know how to code / have software & cable.... if not, there's no point telling you how until you learn the basics, otherwise you'll just do damage!
