Bluetooth tethering with retrofited Combox

Hi,

I have a retrofited Combox which I have coded with a US VIN.
BMW Live and internet have been wokring fine. Since a couple of week
it does not work any more. There a dozens of german users in several german forums with the same problem. So I wanted to ask non german users with retrofited Combox, if the BT tethering still works?

There might be a problem with BMW Live, as it isn't working for me either.

Do you also have the "Internet" option, so this "poor man's browser "? Does it work?

I haven't tried out the internet browser, not sure why that wouldn't work. I will check it out today and let you know.

Do not bother, currently the BMW servers are not working, that's why your VIN does not work. Currenty no VIN works, because the Server which much return the answer to the Combox returns some error. I'm checking the status each day and I will write here as soon as the servers are ready.
