Not sure where to post this, but I just picked up a new car the other day, and the BMW iDrive system has a function called "Office" which is supposed to sync email messages with your BB. My Torch pairs perfectly with the BT for voice calls but I am not able to get any functionality through iDrive for messages.
Does anyone know anything about this? Any help would be appreciated.
Thanx

I am not familiar with the Office feature in the BMW's but is there anything in the car manual on it?

Did a quick search and found this:

BMW Online : Mobile office and news (http://www.bmw.com/com/en/owners/navigation/onlinevehicle_2.html)

Looks like you have to use a BMW email account. Good luck - keep us posted.

The BlackBerry doesn't have the ability to sync email messages or transfer email messages via Bluetooth.
