Re: Recent Forum spam

Lastly, I am slightly intrigued by the theme of this spam. It is fairly innocuous (at this point) That's because there are probably times when the inline links they posted don't work (forum stripped them off) and other times it is just a test/placeholder for a sleeper account to see what kind of re...

Re: Connecting a used 2015 i3 to app

2014, 2015, and 2016 models are no longer able to use Connected Services because their older cellular connection was shut down. There is currently no way for your car to use the app because BMW servers cannot communicate with the car and they do not offer an upgrade path for those cars. edited to ad...

Re: I had a 3G to 4G TCU upgrade to prove a point.

And FYI, I have 2 other friends who have 2017 model year cars I helped put RoadTop units in and they did NOT have the new 4G LTE telematics unit installed in mine in their i3 either. Both of them no longer have connected drive. well, also FYI- on every other forum where someone with a 2017 stated t...

Re: I had a 3G to 4G TCU upgrade to prove a point.

The question I ask is: Has anyone done a conversion from NBT ID4 with TCB to a NBT EVO unit with ID5 or 6 and an ATM and got BMW to recognize the new ATM telematics box so connected drive can be used? I may have a working connected drive setup, but the older NBT ID4 is slower. Would be nice to have...

Re: I had a 3G to 4G TCU upgrade to prove a point.

Yes I’m sure it was a 3G telematics box (aka “TCB”). My actual build date was 04/17. My 2017 also has a build date of 04/17 and it has an original 4G Telematics Control Unit. I'm unclear why you continue to insist the original on your car was "3G", particularly when other owners with cars...

Re: i3 with 3G in North America

That's the thread! And that is what appears to have happened, based on tezarc's telling of it. https://www.mybmwi3.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=17401&start=70 No, that is not true. His last post shows that "something" changed during February but the car still has basic Connected...

Re: I had a 3G to 4G TCU upgrade to prove a point.

Wait, yours is a 2017? What's your build date?
This is a different owner than the OP responding.

Re: I had a 3G to 4G TCU upgrade to prove a point.

From within the vehicle, trying to access BMW Online begins the connection process but returns "The BMW ConnectedDrive Store is no longer available in this vehicle." My 2017 has always shown that since Original Services expired and I renewed last June 2021. I'll check again tomorrow but I...
