Bmw wifi hotspot

Has anyone else successfully connected to the BMW Wifi Hot spot in car?

I can see the SSID and password in the console display, but when i connect nothing seems to happen.

Is there something else i need to be doing?

You need to have subscribed (connected drive) for the WiFi hotspot to work.

My dealer told me that hotspot is not supported for Australia or NZ as a Connected Drive service.
I asked why and they said it was only supported in the EU where they had a data usage package deal with I think T Mobile .
I guess they don't want users in this part of the world consuming huge amounts of data on BMWs tab. And it's just as easy to set up your own phone as an in car hotspot.
