Hello Folks

Just wanted to show how to get the Bimmerpost News (or any other RSS feed) directly into your iDrive screen. It's fairly easy to do, just follow these steps:

1. Log in to your BMW connecteddrive account using a web browser
2. Locate the remote services tab ("Steuerung" in german)
3. Find the News-Feed section and click "new news-feed"
4. Enter this URL: "http://www.bimmerpost.com/feed" and name it "Bimmerpost"
5. Access it in your iDrive under "My news". voilà
