Your BMW dealer can help you change your preferred service partner. A correspoding form is on hand at your dealer. It is also possible to change your service partner via the BMW ConnectedDrive Portal in the internet under "Manage Vehicles" and then selecting "Service Partner".
When you login to your ConnectedDrive account at www.bmw-connecteddrive.nsc you will be able to see your BMW at the top of the screen and then on the right-hand column a list of currently active services and below this a link to services that are available to add to your BMW.
Follow these steps to add your vehicle and open up new features:
• Tap the "Add Vehicle" link near the top of the "Vehicle" screen
• Connect your phone to your vehicle via USB to automatically transfer your vehicle information, or manually enter the last 7 characters of your vehicle identification number (VIN) – this can be found in your BMW service agreement or at the base of your car’s windshield (in North America)
• Select Primary or Secondary user account – choose Primary unless another user is already linked to the same vehicle (this step is only applicable to users in North America; please disregard if you are located outside of North America)
• Locate the code sent to your vehicle under the "Messages" folder within the "ConnectedDrive" menu
• Input the code into the app where prompted
Once this process has been completed there may be a waiting period while the vehicle you have inputted is confirmed and displayed on the "Vehicle" screen.
Note: After purchasing a new vehicle there is a standard account set-up period, during which time your ConnectedDrive account is linked to your new vehicle. Therefore, please wait a few days after the purchase date before attempting to add your vehicle in the app.
For security purposes, your account will be locked after entering the password wrong three times. In the login window the function "Forgotten password" is provided. By using this function you will receive a link via e-mail or text message in order to reset your password
For security reasons, the security code is only valid for a limited period of time. You can request a new security code at any time in the "Manage vehicles" menu. Please contact BMW ConnectedDrive Customer Support if you have any queries.
