6NS - Enhanced USB & Bluetooth

How come it is showing that 6NS - Enhanced USB & Bluetooth is an option (I think some of you guesstimated that it will cost $350) but on the F32 4-Series, it either comes with the Technology Package or it comes with the Stand-Alone Navigation option? If Navigation is standard on the F82 M4, how come 6NS - Enhanced USB & Bluetooth does not come with it? I think it's sort of silly for BMW to not offer it standard since the M4 is getting Navigation standard...

What is this "it" that you're saying is showing you this information?

Anyway, that's how it goes in Canada too, FWIW - 609 is standard, 6NS is optional.

I think the F32 has a navigation package, right? Like the F30? It's not really standalone, it is a package that bundles 6NS. My point being, it's not like 6NS is intrinsic to 609 there either, that's just how they choose to sell it.

You are correct! The F30 ZTP Technology Package includes 6NS.

Ok, yeah, just keep in mind there is no guarantee Navigation will be standard for regular customer orders. It could be that both 609 and 6NS are optional. We'll see once the order guide arrives.

Well I just found out that for the M3/M4 you can still stream music wirelessly via Bluetooth without the "6NS - Enhanced USB and Bluetooth plus Smartphone Integration"

My guess from what i have read so far on these forums is the following (some of which can apparently be coded without the package):

1) office features (read/dictate text and emails, review calendar)
2) connect up to 2 devices simultaneously with bluetooth (e.x. personal and work phone)
3) expanded voice controls
4) bluetooth audio streaming (although some folks are saying this may be available either way)
5) enhanced usb connectivity gives you things like album art, etc. (again some folks are saying you get this either way)
6) smartphone dock adapter

Looking forward to getting more details. None of those things are really relevant for me if we get streaming without the added cost. Dock would be nice but I've always found putting the phone in the armrest was a PITA and didn't allow you to use apps like Waze.

I have heard of people recoding their F-series BMWs from 6NH to 6NS. I definitely want to know what the extra $500 buys me, and what comes stock. I haven't been in a recent BMW that couldn't stream audio through Bluetooth.
If the extra $500 lets me tether my phone to the car, use Siri, and transfer directions, dictate texts/iMessages, emails, etc to the car, I'd pick it up.

Oh yeah, can BMW change the default behavior of disabling bluetooth when I plug my phone into the USB for charging? That is the most annoying thing. Most of the time, my phone stays in my pocket, but as soon as I want to charge, BMW in its infinite wisdom assumes I no longer want to use bluetooth streaming. I guess I gotta get one of those adapters that opens the USB data lines so I just get the 5V to charge.

It lets you use siri, but you can't ask siri for directions you will want to ask your car for directions (voice command) that way directions will show up on NAV+HUD if you ask siri for directions the nav on ur phone will pop up instead.

My question is: How much to get it recoded? if i can pay somebody $100 to recode it or even do it myself to get all of the features I will gladly do so and save myself $500

It depends on where you are. Down here in SoCal we have Coding Meets, and people will just bring food & drinks and shoot the shit while we code. There's usually no charge for our local coders, but I'm sure that some do.

My buddy almost had his new 535 bricked by his friend just 10 minutes ago.
