Hi 2FED,

It's for some countries in Europe, definitely Germany, France and UK. Perhaps Spain are included too? Was there an item on your invoice called BMW Connected Drive / Assist?

I just tried the various websites,...

www.bmwconnecteddrive.co.uk = YES
www.bmwconnecteddrive.fr = YES
www.bmwconnecteddrive.de = YES

www.bmwconnecteddrive.es = NO

Still, it might be worth speaking to BMW about it.

Seems what it isn't supported in Spain.
But how it works? Is some update to iDrive system? I mean, maybe it can be used trough UK site for example but for car in Spain (just Internet, weather, etc...)

Well I hope I can use mine in Spain! I'm driving through France to Northern Spain in August, and it will be good to keep up with the football scores from the new season (English league season kicks off on 16th August!)

It's accessed through the iDrive Communication selection. It's called BMW Connected Drive. If you can't see that then perhaps it can be done via an upgrade, but then again, it may not be available for the Spanish market

Another good feature is the ability to use Google to send addresses - business and private to the iDrive unit. You can then use your Satnav to find directions to it...

So you live in Bromley, UK? My grandparents used to live in Bromley at the top of Hayes Hill Road, near the sports club grounds.

Yep, I drove past the end of their road just last night,... I live a couple of miles away from there.
