Forgets information when unplugged - Poor app

2016 M135i - iPhone 7 plus

The app forgets all the information about the car (apart from the car itself and chassis number) whenever the phone is unplugged from the car, so there's no way to check the mileage without physically checking the dashboard. What's the point of having the app?

Fortunately, when the phone app receives an update it forgets the car too and forces you to log in again. Surely this can be avoided with better programming? I guess we can't have us being spoiled now can we?

It would be nice if checking fuel was an option on this car too but that might just be too helpful, if it were to work.

The BMW app never understands addresses that ios sends to it, be it from Apple maps, Google maps, contacts, Safari etc. At least the maps function within the app itself will successfully send a destination to the car. Hence two stars.

Happy with that BMW? 2 out of 5 stars, and I'm being generous.

It's funny because 2 out of 5 is also the success rate of the app locating the car. The majority of location attempts just time out. When it does find it, it takes many minutes to do so. Surely the car could ping it's location once an hour to BMW servers, and also BMW servers push a location request to the car when you press locate now on the app?

I'm actually surprised that BMW would represent their company with this app.. In 2020.

BMW. You need to raise your app game.

Shockingly Bad

When you pay for a service, you expect at least a half decent service, after reading all the reviews it’s at least comforting to know it’s not just our car, it is absolutely disgusting that nothing ever seems to fix the issues for very long and with each new update or supposedly fixes it kicks us out the App, nothing works not even via a laptop. We will not be buy a brand new BMW again and will definitely be shouting from the rooftops that BMW costs you the Earth but are not upping their game in regards to the computer onboard in the car. Please don’t reply by fobbing us off with XYZ excuses just fix the problem as a matter of urgency.
It’s such a shame as the car itself is lovely and what you would expect from BMW but the App that is a major selling point is a complete and utter disappointment and a waste of good money that costs the earth to have full specifications.

Mine works!

I can’t understand what everyone is moaning about, let’s be honest the app is a bit of a gimmick anyway, who really buys a car because you have an app that opens your doors or tells you what fuel you have left, last time I looked, the key and the fuel gauge does that. I’m a returning BMW customer, left to go with a land rover discovery sport for 5 months, what a joke that was (and their app is even worse!) anyway less said about the better. Tried to register with the app and it said my car was a fleet one, quick call to customer services and a few minutes later I was connected, all fine. I can now sit at home and flash my lights, open my doors and boot and check that no fuel has leaked out while it’s been sat there, all working fine, and I looks quite nice as well on the phone, it will be handy for certain things but it’s not something that would be a deal breaker if I were buying a BMW. The sheer pleasure of driving and owning is the reason to buy one, not the app
