Don't get it? Read several negative reviews and I just don't get what everyone else is doing wrong. It's one of the most straight forward apps in the world which does exactly what it says it does, with no fuss no drama. Downloaded the new combined BMW connected app which combines the remote and connected apps into one for my Iphone. It's superb can't wait for the Android version!
Works great Downloaded,the app,signed in and it worked great. Don't understand some of the reviewers on here? It does exactly what its supposed to do. Please note ! You need to create an account with BMW connector drive for your car first. This then activates your cars service's. Then you can use this app perfectly .
Hard work to get going, not enough features No reason for bmw to have two apps doing so little each. Got this working (not sure why a review has said £290 its free), can remote the air con, flash lights, nothing that will revolutionise your life. Worked but not sure how often I'll use it
Worked once, now crashes instantly After taking a while to setup the necessary accounts, I could finally use the vehicle finder feature to see where my car is parked. The following day I parked in a different spot, but the app is now useless for reminding me where the car is parked: the app crashes every time during the communication with the server, which now happens as soon as I type my pin. I tried clearing the cache, the data, logging in again, reinstalling, nothing helps: querying vehicle finder always starts a recurring app crash.
Frustrating Ok, so you download this, create an account, play around with it a little to test the features you paid for and after finding that everything works you leave it alone. Then, when you *need* it -like when you lost your key or simply want to pre-ventilate or locate your car- it will just crash on launch leaving you with useless remote services subscription, as a joke to all your audi-driving friends. Whose apps just kinda work by the way, flawlessly. I'm disappointed.
maps and initial mapping doesnt work when trying to share locations from google maps to the remote app it never finds the location in the remote app - if its a business or dropped pin. the mapping of the app with the car didnt work either - it finds the car but when pressing "connect" it doesnt do anything. had to go to the website to map/add the car --> then it shows on the app. there is still quite some room for improvement guys - premium looks different to me!!! android 6.0.1 with galaxy s5
