Internet in your X1 - ConnectedDrive

Anyone knows how this thing works?

This doesn't show up as an option here in Portugal, but I see that BMW indeed has "in-car internet" in its ConnectedDrive services:

From what I can figure out, they use a 3G flatrate service with a SIM card onboard.

My question is... Is there anyway to access the internet via your cellphone?
(In my case, I already have an iPhone, and it would be great if I could use it to have my car connected to the internet.)

You have to register via the BMW website for it which is in the owners section. Once this is done and you have paired your mobile up (mine is an iphone too) you can access google search, weather updates, news, etc.

Thanks. Guess I'll have to wait till it arrives to see how that owner section works...
