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 .
This app used to work for me but has been crashing on start up for the last few months. No amount of feedback and error reporting has prompted the developers into fixing the issue. When it did work, I think the functionality was limited. Location finder rarely worked and the most I could do was lock/unlock and pre-ventilate. I needed the last function about twice a year. Some ideas for better function would be ability to check on fuel level, mileage, service intervals, etc and better integration to send destinations to the Sat Nav rather than some message bank.
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.
I've had a BMW that 'could' use this app for nearly 4 years, still a useless app even with all this time for BMW to improve it. No integration with Google maps, the most useful feature advertise. Crashes consistently. Absolute rubbish. I've only had pure Google Nexus and Pixel phones so there is no excuse for BMW to say anything is unsupported as I use a Google OEM phone. Don't pay money for this option when buying a car, complete waste.
- Create a BMW ConnectedDrive account, add a BMW vehicle and activate the Remote Services using the app.
