2009 idrive - internet access
Major Noob here:
I just picked up my first BMW - 2009 328i Conv. Really nice car, and one of the reasons I bought it was the vastly improved idrive.
One of the idrive features really caught my eye -- the integrated full Internet browser. It's part of a feature called ConnectedDrive, I believe. The story goes that it uses the cellular Edge interface (either in your cell phone, or the one in the car that does telematics - not sure yet)
I tried to use it, and got an error that the feature was not yet available, and after that, it disappeared from the iDrive menu.
According to the web, the feature is available in Germany, but anyone know if it's to be launched here any time soon??
