Anyone know what all this is about? Everything seems to be working, but this stupid error message keeps appearing and I would like to silence it for good.

You can get any global radio station if you use the internet radio instead of fm/dab - but for it to work you need a media streaming connection (ie paid data connection loaded on the car or have the car linked to your mobile hotspot permanently).

I imagine they’ll disable the notification in a future update so that it only appears if you try to actually select internet radio - rather than it appear as part of a start-up check.

I did try to trick it by linking to home wifi so at start-up it can access the internet and therefore internet radio is enabled, hoping not to get the notification..... this worked (and I could use internet radio) - but as soon as you drive out of range of the wifi connection the notification triggers again!

Oh, rats, another clunky software thing then. Yes, hopefully they'll fix it! I suppose I could just leave my phone in wireless hotspot mode, and link the car to that... maybe that will do for now to make that message go away.

You’ll miss that message when it’s gone!
We’ll all pine for the ‘good old days’ when you had a random error message every day and twice on Sunday 😂

My car is annoying me at the moment. It bleeps at me every time I switch it on to tell me about ice, as the temperature is under 3 degrees.

Why would that annoy you? My BMW does that, it's a good safety feature it's just letting you know there could be icy conditions.

If the notification icon shows "1" I just ignore it.
Me too, so when mine showed “3” when I got in the car yesterday I selected it. All 3 messages were about a lack of Internet radio:rolleyes:
