Drive Recorder coding in the US?

I had a minor incident last night and I couldn't do anything because I didn't have proof. Does anyone know if Drive Recorder can be coded in the US ?

Not that I know of.

I transferred over my BlackVue from my F10 and will use it until Drive Recorder becomes avail for the US market.

This system saved me multiple times. IMO all modern cars should have recording capabilities especially with the amount of cameras that are already built in.

I agree. Only Tesla does that unfortunately?

OP sucks that your car had that accident. But it looks like your car shouldn’t be out of commission for too long? I hope everything works out in your favor.

Ouch. Looks like a new hood in your future. Tough to rework aluminum.

You're a CA, ask your regional after sales rep to find out from NA when they'll open up DR to purchase through the Connected Drive Store. May not be till end of 2020 when they push the OTA update to offer AA (if that ever happens for pre July 2020 cars).

So far iDrive 7 and downloadable apps has been a disappointment. Maybe iDrive 8, lol.

I guess that’s ideal if you want everything to be perfect? I watched a video the other day where they redid the hood of a new glc300 that was totaled. That was aluminium too and they welded a crack on it and then repainted it. Also some hammering and stuff to get it right.

I dont know if it can be coded but when i recently logged on to my BMW connected drive on bmw.ca, it gave me the option to purchase Drive Recorder for 1 month, 1 year, 3 years, 20 years. Mine is a late 2018 build 330i with all the bells and whistles and the 11/2019.40 software version.

I tried the 1 month version just to see if it will actually work on my car, it did. Will go back and purchase the longer dated version soon.

JayPichardo ,

I keep checking the ConnectedDrive Portal for Drive Recorder & Connected Music and have yet to have either listed. I have checked with the BMW Genius office in NJ and get neither is available yet in US, BUT have seen posts from others who have one or both of these.

What am I missing?
