Question [E70] Combox retrofit installed and working but have questions

Hi all,
I recently retrofitted a combox media in my 2010 X5, replacing both the TCU and MULF. I have coded everything and all is finally working including BMW Live. I had various issues where my rear and side cameras stopped working due to using too high of a build date but I figured out the settings and now they are working fine. Initially I used a build date of #0410, as described in that PDF floating around, but that gives the old style CD menu where the album art is tiny. I ended up using a build date of #0313 and that's when my cameras stopped working. As I said I found the settings for the cameras and they are working and in the meantime I also found the setting to use the new CD style page with large album art. I also had an issue where bluetooth tethering was not working until I manually changed some settings in MEDIA so that's working now as well.

After messing with this stuff and finally ironing out all these little issues, I have one left that I cannot figure out. In BMW Live I have the following items:
-News
-Weather
-Online Search
-Street View
-Applications
-Settings

I keep seeing pictures online of this:
-News
-Weather
-Google Local Search
-Panoramio
-Street View
-Applications
-Settings

I don't have Panoramio and my search is labeled Online Search where the other is Google Local Search. When I enter my Online Search menu it does say "Powered by Google" in the upper-right so I believe it's the same but why the difference in the labels and why am I missing an item? I have gone through and selected every possible region and am currently set to Germany. Changing regions gains or loses items but regardless they are always named the same. What gives? Am I going crazy?

My VO is as follows:
Code:
1CA,245,248,2RX,2VB,302,316,319,322,328,386,3AH,402,417,430,431,441,459,464,488,493,494,496,4AZ,4NA,4NB,502,508,521,522,524,544,563,609,614,615,620,644,645,655,676,697,6AL,6FL,6UH,6VC,761,823,853,876,8S4,8SL,8SM,A090,EWS4
I did see a setting like ONLINE_GLS or similar and thought it may be "Google Location/Local Services" and set it to aktiv but that didn't do anything.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi can't assist with your question, but thinking of retro fitting and getting a new tcu with 3G/4g retrofitted. What was the cost for you or was it free? My BMW connected app won't work any longer as they switched services. Thx.
