Getting BMW Apps through Software Upgrade


I've a 2012 model 1.16i. It's smart phone music interface is 6NK.

My infotainment system is pretty awesome but it doesn't have BMW App support unfortunately.

Is it possible to have the service upgrade my infotainment software for me to have BMW App support?

Apparently yes!

Although don't phone the BMW dealership in Watford. They don't know one end of a options list from another! Beyond useless.

However, Sytner are excellent. Assuming you are in the UK give them a call.

Apologies about the Watford dealership rant. But they need to be named and shamed.

It's possible to retrofit an iDrive, upgrade to BMW Apps and so on. But from my experience, BMW will not do it. Use unofficial channels. Google is your friend..
