We are very happy to inform you that BimmerTech
is the first vendor offering the Internet and BMW Live
activation in the F-series vehicles.
The Internet and BMW Live include the following services:
- Web browser
- Google Local Search
- Street View
These new features are part of our Combox retrofit or can be enabled in any F-series car equipped with the CIC (SA609) and Combox (SA6VC).
Here are the key features of the BimmerTech Combox retrofit:
- Better Bluetooth integration
- Bluetooth audio
- Album art covers (requires option 6FL or 6NR)
- Office menu
- BMW Live
For the Internet and BMW Live you need to have one of the supported phones, e.g. iPhone 3GS or 4 and the tethering (Personal HotSpot) enabled.
If you have BMW Assist active in your car the Internet and BMW Live retrofit will disable Assist features in the iDrive while still allowing you to make emergency calls and send your car location to BMW.
