You need to get a GSM TCU (CDMA TCU does not support MyInfo), a post 03/08 firmware update of your iDrive CCC, and Assist must transfer your ESN from your CDMA TCU to the GSM TCU for this to work.

You can get the GSM TCU, forum vendor BimmerTech can do the firmware update and the coding, but the third step could be difficult as a dealer will have to request the ESN transfer to Assist for you.

Has ANYBODY gotten ASSIST to activate this my info feature for CDMA devices pre 6/08 production????????? I NEED the send to google to work... I'm so tired of trying to fumble with this damn knob looking for addresses... If the answer is NO - has anybody tried to buy a TSU from ebay (found an 09 for 129 bucks) and plug that damn thing in and make it work?? I'm assuming there will have to be major programming to get it working and of course updating the Assist people - who probably won't update without the BMW dealer telling them its been retrofitted???

Anybody??? Thanks in advance...
