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!
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
Absolutely useless! Installed and created an account without any problems. When trying to add my vehicle I input all the required details, vehicle was found and then when trying to add to my newly created account it would not connect to server. Tried numerous attempts since and does absolutely nothing when I press 'continue' to try and connect to server and add my vehicle to my account. Highly disappointing.
Ok Besides Mapping. Big delay for commands. IF using BMW Google maps in this app it will show permanent closed stores open and then with the cars navigation will drive you there through concrete barriers and down one-way roads the wrong way. Also with no HUD speed in Australia as foolishly turned off by BMW
Full of bugs Works from Web interface on mobile devices or PC however the android program sends the command but does not close . It hangs on "transfering command " .The car runs the commad but ithe app is stuck so cannot run another command. It must be restarted. I think that the car is not able to communicate back to the mobile device that it has run the command but is able to communicate if the command comes from the Web interface. Same problem with android tablet (galaxy tab 10.1) and galaxy s4 phone. Please fix.
They have got to be kidding. £290 to activate the remote part of the app!!!. £50 for the remote part + £240 of a prereq connected services. If I'd wanted to waste huge sums of money on apps, I'd have bought an iPhone
