ConnectedDrive Login?

Took delivery of my M240i last weekend and didn't receive any information on ConnectedDrive. I contacted BMW Canada and they said to contact my dealer. I emailed a genius at the dealership but so far he hasn't been much help. He's given me what he says is my login username and password, but no clue as to where I actually enter these. The US has this page:

https://connecteddrive.bmwusa.com/cd...n?locale=en_US

Every developed country in the world appears to be covered by this page:

https://www.bmw-connecteddrive.com/c...selection.html

Except Canada. So, do you guys know the secret (even to BMW Canada, it seems) login page?

Login via your idrive, through the ConnectedDrive option.

That said, nothing works e.g. connecteddrive store....I've been trying for nearly a year to get connected. Tried new IDs new passwords...etc

If you get it all working, please let me know how you managed to get it sorted.

Actually, the truth is that BMW has chosen to treat us like second class customers and not make most of these features available to Canadians. It's inexcusable in my view.

Thanks! Got connected. Haven't really tried anything, but CarPlay suddenly appeared, which is probably related. And that's working fine. Will experiment more later.

Keep us posted. Granted I don't have Carplay but definitely curious if you get access to other features I.e. connecteddrive store

I'll rest on the solace that BMW Canada has probably the lowest prices of any country for 2-series cars at the moment. Also, we have more leather/trim and wheel choices than most other markets too, based on an M240i configuration. Comparing on the road prices (all taxes and fees included) in Alberta with the U.K., Germany and the US (Texas - to compare low sales tax with Alberta), a comparably equipped M240i with manual transmission is:
88% of the U.K. Price (The relative price there has changed by 10% due to the drop in the because of Brexit)
75% of the German price.
85% of the US price.

Anyone figure out how to change the creds? They provide generic creds which is so stupid... anyone can figure it out and have access to your vehicle

Garage List
When I picked up my car the BMW Genious gave me a password and told me which app to download. It's pretty neet. I can on my iPhone check how much range I have currently, lock the doors, unlock the doors, sound the horn, blink my headlights, precondition the car (turn on vents right away or set a time for them to turn on.) You can also see on a map where you are and where your car is. You can also through the app look up an address or location and then have it sent to your cars nav.

Overall it's not the most incredible app on the market now but it's pretty good to me. I suggest you guys contact your sales person and try it out.

Good luck!
