Ratings and Reviews
First off, they don't tell you that this only works even close to properly in portrait mode. In landscape, you can only use the first four options--out of maybe a dozen or more. It freezes after looking at any available information. And if you start something in landscape, you can't rotate to portrait.
Apart from reading the specs, everything is video. While the videos themselves are OK--well written, clearly spoken--they only give a taste of what they start to explain, and then refer you to the manual. Some features apply to my M3, others to other models, even though I have to let the app know which car I'm driving.
Overall, the software design is poor, superficial, and difficult to use. This could be far better, and it ought to be.
Really? Cup holder videos?
This app required me to sign in and saved my vehicle, but then gave me instructional videos for all different models. I would imagine that some of the videos might be useful, but the in-depth information only extends to things like the Door Bottle Holders. Really. There is an entire video on how to use the cupholder (oops, sorry, *bottle* holder) in the side pocket of (you guessed it!) the door. Meanwhile, I still don't know how to have my BMW read or display text messages.
Great App but needs 1 important thing!
As a client advisor this app is very useful but it’s missing one key option! Please add the ability to save or send the vehicle specs as a pdf file so we can share the info with our clients through email or text. This would not only help get the important info to clients a lot quicker but it will also be a more professional format than sending screenshots of the info that the client is requesting. I hope to see this as option added to the app soon!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
