Unfortunately we ran into an issue whereby our legal team would have wanted an NDA to be signed if we pushed out the site to the forums before the official release.

These are some of the challenges of the corporate world. None the less we are working hard and will be launching very shortly.

Thanks for the patience and hopefully everyone agrees it is worth the wait.

Oh believe me, I know some of the challenges in the corporate world, especially when you need to be tied up with the legal department. I myself have been trying to get a project off the ground at work and had to get all the documents sorted out with legal and for a privacy certification it took them a year to finally review and approve.....A year delay for some hot-shot lawyer to finally decide it was important enough to warrant an hour out of their precious time.

I found this thread quite by accident and very pleased to see there is some progress inn improving the functionality of the Canadian system. It would be very useful for BMW.ca to spam Canadian owners to advise them of the new features, web site locations, procedures etc so everyone can take advantage of the improvements.
I think what frustrates people the most is the fact that we have paid a subscription fee for a service that has been less than stellar and in comparison to other countries, very limited.
When the "new" system is available, please broadcast to as wide an audience as possible and include all the key websites and info.

thanks very much for participating in this blog and providing real information and assistance. It is very much appreciated.

In the US market some older vehicles like 2014 and prior had 2g wireless which was discontinued by ATT so you couldn't renew the connected drive subscription even if you're willing to pay for it. Those still under the free period either got a gift card or could upgrade to 3g but if you were past the free period you were out of luck.

Hi Kris,

When I picked-up my used 435iX, I had to ask my local BMW dealer to setup an Electronic Subscriber Agreement in my name. Once completed, ConnectedDrive was re-enabled.

Based on your specs, it appears you have the ConnectedDrive Essential Plan (assuming your VIN is registered with BMW Canada). If you would like the additional ConnectedDrive Services such as ARTTI and Remote Services, you will have to upgrade your ConnectedDrive plan to the Professional Plan. The Professional Plan includes: Remote Services (6AP), ARTTI (6AM), Concierge Services (6AN), BMW ConnectedDrive Service Package (6AK) and BMW Apps (6NR).

Thanks Larry, appriciate your help. My Connected Drive doesnt seem to do anything right now. But those services you listed is what Im looking for. I have an appt next Friday to have the local dealer look at it. Was hoping the website would be up as would it allow me to do it myself?? Also what does the ConnectedDrive Essentials include??

Thanks
Kris

Hi Kris,

You should have at least "Emergency Call" and "TeleServices". Try pushing your SOS button to see if it initiates a call to the BMW Call Centre. If you have no ConnectedDrive Services, your BMW dealer may not have set you up with an ESA.

I have attached a crop of my ESA showing the ConnectedDrive Services bundled in the two Service Plans. FYI, I upgraded from Essential to Professional in May/17 for $650+HST.
