Enhanced Bluetooth Retrofit on 2018 X1 : Another thanks to Wibbles!

Post by hampers » Fri Mar 15, 2019 7:34 pm

Another thank you to Craig for adding Enhanced Bluetooth to my F48 X1 2018.

Although I already had Audio streaming and Siri as part of the "standard' X1 I was a little surprised to not be able to see any texts/SMS displayed.
Craig explained everything and connected to my laptop remotely via the recommended Amazon cable.

All done and dusted in no time. Super knowledgeable and friendly chap!

I'm sure I'll be back for more - hopefully when he and his colleagues have worked out a Carplay retrofit to my X1 without the Pro Nav (like every single X1 I managed to find in the whole of the UK 2nd hand market..!)

I now have:

- The "Office" option in the Bluetooth setup meaning I get SMS/text notifications displayed in the Headunit (and read by Siri)
- Two phones connected at once, ideal for longer trips with 2 of us in the car.

I have an iPhone and seems to work fine. Yet to test Android where Craig advised you have greater functionality (reply to SMS for example)..

All without leaving my drive. Fab - thanks !

Sure - cable is £20 from me, Enhanced BT via remote coding is £50 which includes a free recode for life gaurantee if the dealer wipes the coding.

You'll just need a windows PC and good wifi or mobile hotspot. Ping me an email on: enquiries@brdiagnostics.co.uk once you get the car and want to proceed.
