    GPS Positioning deactivated

    Trying to use the My BMW App and when I try to use VEHICLE FINDER I get this message

    Enable Vehicle's GPS
    GPS positioning is deactivated in
    your vehicle. I am missing the manual that explains this , can anyone tell me the key strokes to accomplish this?

    “To use mobility
    functions, please activate GPS
    positioning in your vehicle's
    Settings menu. Further information
    can be found in your vehicle
    Owner's Manual.
    UNDERSTOOD”

    I don’t know the answer but…all of the info in any manual that would have come with the car is BUILT into iDrive. In fact, it is more specific than the paperback versions (which is written to cover every possible build specification). The manual built into iDrive is vehicle specific and has multiple ways of searching. Probably using “GPS” as a keyword search will bring up info…and if you need to change or make a selection…it would be covered.

    Good luck. The one pic below is iDrive7…the other two are older versions of iDrive that shows how specific the embedded owners manual is.
