How old is the car? My Audi online services, or what ever it was called, only lasted 90 days before it expired and required a purchase.

3 years seem fair, apart from the mobile app what else does connected drive give you access to?

CD gives you access to map updates: automatically updating UK maps while driving, and via the download-to-USB mechanism for Europe.

With my ProNnav, I got 3 years membership.

Really?? I knew my Deezer was due to expire after 12 months but connected drive? 230+160 for deezer, £350!!

Deezer is the only thing I use for the "Connected Services" and I'm still deciding whether to drop £160 on that alone. The rest of it is a waste of time.

£160 for Deezer? Isn’t it normally £11 a month or something like that?

To have the Deezer package through BMW it's a £160 one off payment for 12 months. This allows you to use the cars 4G sim card to download data/music.

Couldn’t I just sign into the Deezer on the car with the Deezer account I already have? Sorry, I’m yet to take deliver of my car.

I’d check with BMW because that doesn’t sound right.

Our ConnectedDrive services are valid for 36 months.

Not as far as i'm aware :( That will only allow you to use the regular Deezer services through phone apps, desktop etc. If you look on the Deezer account it actually specifies it's a BMW subscription too :(

If I don't need to pay for connected drive, I'm still considering renewing it. I love Deezer :)

That will be bloody annoying as I have loads of music already on my Deezer as I’ve had an account with them for nearly 5 years. I’ll have to play music through BT as always ☹️
