Lost Real Time Traffic Info, BMW Assist says I have to pay for it

Hello, I have lost RTTI for a while, finally calling BMW for an answer, Customer service refers me to BMW Assist which answers Connected Drive questions, the lady on the phone first confused that I have an issue with the BMW Connected Drive app, upon learning that I have the issue with the iDrive, she bluntly tells me "you only have Connected Drive essential", "you don't have traffic information", "your map won't update", and then went on listing all the prices. I then called my SA, he says the car might have come with certain ConnectedDrive subscriptions but eventually they will run out, which means I have to pay to get RTTI active again. I thought you pay for Advanced RTTI, but the regular RTTI came with the car and is free, no?

You pay for advanced RTTI. If you let that subscription expire you can use standard RTTI but you have to code iDrive for it to work. The necessary changes with NBT are

HU_NBT:

TI_TMC = aktiv
TI_CA_TMC = aktiv
TI_TPEG = nicht_aktiv
TI_CA_TPEG = nicht_aktiv
TI_TMC_REGIONAL = aktiv

Thanks, but if you have never paid for Advanced RTTI subscription will the standard RTTI work? I checked my VIN my car came with 6AM Real-Time Traffic Information, it seems counter-intuitive that it had to be coded to work.

Finally found out what subscriptions I have and which have expired, the map update does require subscription, which is 75/year, RTTI 50/year, explains why my map version was stuck at 2019-3 because that's when it expired.
