Internet Option

Has anyone else taken the Internet Connectivity option and managed to get it working? Especially on an iPhone?

Internet appears under the BMW Services option of iDrive and the Bluetooth entity for my iPhone shows that sharing for data is enabled. However whenever I select Internet it sits on loading homepage for ages before finally saying that Internet is not available.

Anyone had any luck with this in Oz?

Yeah, it works for me. I wouldn't expect too much though. Do you have bluetooth tethering enabled on the phone? When you check the bluetooth settings in the car does it indicate data transfer is supported for the device? Do you have a decent data connection on your phone when you try it?

For info, I'm using a Galaxy SII running/Android 4.0.4. I'm pic happy at the moment, so here's some pics

Just got it working today. I turned Hot Spot on in the phone and the error changed to something along the lines of "No data services are available on the device". I figured it had to be something to do with the firmware but I couldn't download the firmware over the weekend as the Australian BMW site appeared to constantly be down.

I managed to get it this morning and installed the latest firmware, and behold... it works
