Cool thanks for the info, that was my next question if it worked only when parked. I do have connected drive that is ok. I guess the browser isn't worth it!No. The internet browser piece (when going through connected drive) asks the BMW servers if you are subscribed to that, and only then does it get turned on in the menu display.
You aren't missing much. The browser is pretty suck-tastic and is locked out if the car isn't parked at a dead stop. I bought the option when I got the car. It isn't something I'll renew.
