Connected drive on line music renewal

Post by McTrucky » Mon Jul 16, 2018 10:12 pm

Hi all,
My 140i is about a year old. My one year trial of Deezer is coming to an end on 23rd July, so the on screen message is telling me every morning. This can be renewed in the 'store' within two weeks of the expiry date, it also tells me.

So, I renewed in the store (on my tablet) and paid my £160 late last week. Got my confirmation email with order number, and in the store, 'my orders' it says 'completed'.

But the car still tells me every morning that it will expire on 23rd.

So, do I have a problem? Should the car have been updated by now?

I now have an email from BMW saying I need to let it expire, then I can access the voucher to register again.

What is the chance of this working seamlessly... Maybe in the car , but I can see my use of deezer on other devices going for a burton.

But guess I need to wait and find out.

Hi, I had the same concerns as you, I renewed Deezer in May. It was seamless, it renewed automatically with all my favourites and playlists saved. Don't worry!

Are you finding that Deezer in the car has limitations on the number of playlists and albums you can have? I'm finding it only shows the most recent 100 playlists and doesn't display any albums beyond 150 (not sure about artists)?

I was paying £10 a month for Spotify before taking the bmw deezer offer. So for an extra £40 a year, I think this is a bit of a bargain...

What I might do is switch to Napster if it gives me the chance rather than auto renew Deezer. I prefer the interface on android when using it (not in the car obviously) and understand it starts playing new selections much quicker than deezer as it does not buffer the whole track before starting to play. It also has a Spotify style song radio which I can't easily get on Deezer.

So, do you think I will be able to switch?
Any Napster users out there want to comment on what it is like in car?
