Hi Southern,

Great info as always. Thanks for taking the time to share.

I have been trying to pair my phone to my car for messages to no avail. For some odd reason, I have not been able to get the "Show Notifications" slider to appear under the Bluetooth pairing settings (to my car) on my phone. As a result, "Current Office" and "Messages" menus do not even show up on iDrive when the phone is paired and connected. I only get phone and audio functions. I have tried two iPhone 5 and one iPhone 4S, all of them running IOS 6.01. The software on the iDrive has already been updated to the latest UPD0005.bin versions.

Any advise you can share to get messages working would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
