Driverís Guide, Connected Drive - when?

When can customers start using the apps? After delivery? I figured it would at least let me download the manual into the Driverís Guide app, but it just says that itís not available for my VIN.

Connected Drive says that my vehicle isnít equipped for Connected Drive services.

The car is still at the port.

I believe it has to be activated by your SA as you pick up the vehicle. Takes a day or two to be active if I recall from my previous BMW.

Thanks! Wished they made the manual available. After all, the car is associated with my account in My Garage. I can understand that they donít want to make Connected Drive available until after delivery.

Got the call. Car was prepped, inspected, serviced and detailed this afternoon. My CA called and we are picking it up tomorrow. Pictures to follow.

Thank goodness the wait is over.
