Traffic information for nav - Australia
New here so don't know a great deal but I would love to enable real time traffic information on my 2014 X3 (pre LCI) M Sport with Pro Nav here in Australia? I am not sure if that's the only way to enable it but reading the official bmw.com.au it appears that RTTI is part of the connected drive services (6AM), which may in turn be a 'module' from 6NR (apps?).
However, I don't recall 6NR being available as an option in the brochure when I was reviewing the spec, as I tried to ensure I got the highest tech available so am certain would've selected it if it were there. I don't know if that's to do with local regulations as the BMW rep did say something about a lot of the high tech features available in US & NZ being disallowed by the regulator (which I dismissed as plain stupid as a lot of other cars arguably already have these capabilities). So my questions are:
- Is there no TMC capability for traffic services to be received by the HU?
- If yes, can any one or more of these services - 6NR, 6AM or even 6AR - be activated by a FSC code? If yes, may a tech guru here please guide me on how I can do so or know of a 'service' that may give me a FSC code for my vin?
- once enabled would the BMW connected app work on my iphone? Right now it just shows data read failure after it establishes connection
- how can I keep track of the latest map version for Australia/NZ so I find out once 2015 is available (I noted in another post North America is now out) - hoping against hope but I don't suppose a map update would suddenly enable 'hidden' features in RTTI?!
Thanks in advance for your help!
