Trouble activating included free Sirus XM one year trial

anyone else having as much trouble setting up their 1 year free trial through sirus xm as I am?

I've called 3 times. each time they send me a new signal to activate the subscription and also they send me a text to refresh this so called space signal myself if theirs doesn't work. I've done this one too...

does it take an additional 24-48 hours for this to work? I don't remember it being this hard 3 years ago when I sold my other bmw. I called, they set it up, activated, no problem.

anyone have this issue?

thanks.

You need to have your radio on when they send the signal. Other wise it doesn’t work.

My Dealer had it setup and working for delivery.

Your dealer obviously not as customer friendly.

Mine was set up already by the BMW Genius along with the tracking device (BMW Assist and Connected Drive) so I could get the insurance discount. I would have the Genius set it up for you. They scheduled an appointment for me to come back a week later to confirm everything was working right.
