    Hi all, I’m a little bamboozled with this... got my 2015 plate F30 320d with standard navigation (non-widescreen idrive display, no ‘Office’ option on the main menu). I saw some videos online of folk using Spotify, Tunein etc via idrive by just plugging in their iPhone and the respective app...

    G'Day Folks, New member chiming in with a 2010 F11. Currently I'm using my favorite music apps (Spotify and TuneIn) via the car's BT, which works well enough. My question is though, is there any possibility to actually install these apps in iDrive? Thanks in advance, ReluctantRenegade

    Anyone know if it's possible to get TuneIn on the connected apps? I've got my Pixel plugged in via cable and I can get spotify to show up and work (although it sometimes takes a few attempts to stay running) but I can't get TuneIn.

    Hi all, I apologise if this has been covered elsewhere, but I've done a fair bit of searching and can't find the answer I'm looking for....seems to be heavily weighted towards CCC to CIC updates. Anyway, I have a 2010 E92 with Pro Nav, DAB and the Vin spec shows that I have a Combox. I'm aware...

    Right I'm after a diagnostics app for my phone. I've used torque which worked great on my impreza, this does work on MY06 318ci but not great. I've tried the carly light but you have to buy everything and then buy the add ons. And I don't have a laptop ( well one with hole in screen) Any...

    I dont want this thread to become a 'android is better than istuff' or any of the many other tangents that often come with saying you own anything that has an 'i' in its name. Apples lockdown of the i devices is at times a very bad thing and severely limits its desirability to many...

    Has anyone downloaded an OBD app for their iPhone or Android? My mate showed me some available apps last night and apparently you just need a bluetooth adapter for the car (cheap ones are about £15) Could this be too good to be true? Great idea though

    there was a saying coined not too long ago - from the Apple marketing peeps i think - something like.. "... they have an app for that!" meaning that they have an app for almost anything... well I'm slowly starting to think this is maybe true?.. My latest revelation is an app for my local taxi...
