Yeah true!!

Mines mid 2018 release so there doesn’t seem to be a ‘buy a new car and get 1 year office free!’ Scheme going on 🤔

Yep mine has suddenly said “Activating” in the Me App.

I’ve gone to the Me Web Portal to activate it via the slider button, and it’s appeared to be activated for 1 year.

It’s then allowed me to add a O365 account, and a GMail account (while still in the Web Portal, not the Me app).

Update: GMail/GSuite works fine in the car, O365 not so much as it’s a corporate account and needs admin to approve the link to 3rd party (Me) apps having access.

Noticed it asks for the ‘me’ pin after every engine restart. Anyone know of a way to disable this?

I suspect not, otherwise it's not secure, anyone could get into your car and access all your emails, info and calendar, contacts etc.

I know the admins of any corporate O365 accounts won't be happy without the additional security PIN !

True, they could probably get the contacts from the phone anyway. Only using for a personal account so I wouldn’t be too worried.

Has anyone who received this free manged to get it working?

It says it is activated in the Mercedes me app, I have linked it to my gmail account in the Mercedes me portal, but I still cant find it in the car anywhere, (apps, licence activation etc).

Where would it be and how long does it take, (its been a couple of days since I set it up on the portal)

It happened almost instantaneously for me, I found In Car Office in Apps on MBUX.

Your car does need good connectivity on it's e-SIM though, if you're in a bad reception area it won't update/download the app into the car.

I have just looked again, nothing in Apps. Is there something I'm missing? do you have to create a profile in your car?

I already had an existing profile, so I assume it used that.
I think the only profile on the car is "guest" so I wonder if it will make a difference of I set one up

@Ian-H I think you need to subscribe to one of the other MBUX services to get multiple profiles - £29 per year. I have this as the same service enables the alert to smartphone if your car is bumped.
