Snap. Well, first chance to check today when traffic stopped the other way & it showed correctly. Happy days.

Also saved me a 3 mile stop start queue. Some days road is clear, some days it is shite. Today was one of those days so I enjoyed a 5 mile C road detour

My maps show me some of the new road but the RTTI is still linked to the old road. I guess this will be updated in the next few years!
That's the one. Fecking overnite roadworks but they leave the speed restrictions in during the day from Bedford towards the A1 BlackCat. No speed cameras though so guess you got caught by van/plod? Unlucky

Yeah it's a crap stretch, admittedly it's better than the original A421

Hated going from Cambridge go MK.

The Black Cat is just a legendary nightmare lol.

On the A1 from there to Huntingdon, there must be about 5 unmarked cars operating.

One lot even sit among the parked cars near Buckden.

Yes I noticed , that's what made me think if it should be standard.

How old is your car and has it been serviced?
4 weeks old. No service.
All that option does is give you the dealers phone number.
I wouldn't worry if I didn't have it.

hi, I have the same problem on my car - all I can see in the Connected Drive menu are 3 phone numbers.. nothing else.
I have ordered all possible options (RTTI, Concierge, Apps, everything...). My car is one of the last pre-LCI cars built (it is 4 weeks old...).
I have contacted BMW distributor in my country (Slovakia) but they are unable(??) to help me. They said that they have contacted technical support (I guess in Germany??), but this far I haven't got any reply from them...

I think they forgot to activate something in the factory...

No, the dealer should request activation when you take delivery of your car. It can take a few days & there was a problem when this thread posted up. Fingers crossed you get sorted soon as.

thank you.. if I understood it correctly - as soon as it gets activated by dealer (remotely), those items will appear automatically in Connected Drive menu?

Pretty sure that's how it works. You should get a password so you can log in online & if you have an iphone, there are a few bmw apps you can use, connected & bmw remote.
