ConnectedDrive - Setting up Gmail.

Post by jimbo1958 » Sun Oct 12, 2014 3:49 pm

Had no luck in setting up gmail from car or

This works if you're having problems.

1) Set up "2 Step Verification from within "Google Security".

What this will do is allow you to setup "mail" from "Other(customised name)"............I named it "BMW".
It then generates a custom 16 digit password that you enter as your Google password rather than your normal one during the mail setup process at settings/Set up services/E-Mail accounts

Works a treat but doubt I'll use it much......just bugged me that I couldn't get it working. :)
