BMW Connected is optimized for 2014 and newer vehicles. While the app’s features will function as expected on many 2013 and earlier vehicles, some vehicles may be incompatible with certain services.
Usage of the app is based on the general contractual and usage conditions for BMW ConnectedDrive. For further information on the wide range of services offered by BMW ConnectedDrive and BMW Connected, please also consult our webpages at www.bmw.com/connecteddrive and www.bmw.com/getconnected.

A mobile Internet connection is required. This can incur costs (for example due to roaming) in accordance with the contract concluded between the customer and the network operator.
Please observe national requirements and conditions specific to the country you are in. For the aforementioned reasons, BMW is unable to warranty unrestricted compatibility and functionality of your mobile device in combination with the vehicle interface.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can decrease battery life. If you experience significant battery drain while using BMW Connected, select the lower battery usage option in the Settings menu.
At the Apple Worldwide Developer Conference BMW and Apple announced that BMW will become the first carmaker to enable its customers to use iPhone as a fully digital car key. The strong relationship of both companies led to a real BMW car key stored securely on iPhone in Apple Wallet.
The BMW Digital Key for the iPhone will enable you to lock and unlock your car by holding iPhone up to the door handle and start it up by placing iPhone in the smartphone tray. The car owner can also share access to up to 5 friends. The Digital Key will be also available via your Apple Watch. Setup of the Digital Key can be done through the BMW Connected App while the Digital Key is stored in Apple Wallet after setup.
We are excited to announce the availability of Digital Key for iPhone for a broad range of models: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, X5, X6, X7, X5M, X6M and Z4 if manufactured after July 1st 2020. If your vehicle is capable it will be shown on the vehicle tab.
Compatible iPhone models will be iPhone XR, iPhone XS or newer and Apple Watch Series 5 or newer.
Make sure you always have the latest version to benefit from these updates. Stay connected and enjoy a seamless mobility experience!

Remaining hopeful 🧐
This is a great app; however, it often jams and does not correct itself unless the app is deleted and re-loaded to ur device. I like this app for the information it provides when i am away from the vehicle. The 3D surround view is awesome but it frequently jams or gets stuck. When that happens you cannot check on the vehicle using the 3D view again until you are back inside the vehicle, which defeats the purpose of viewing ur vehicle surroundings when you are away from ur vehicle for days. I am hopeful this glitch will be corrected. Aside from this, I enjoy using the app so do recommend its use. Also recommend keeping the app locked with an individual and separate password that is Not the same as your device password. Lastly, when using the 3D surround view, the side mirrors will unfold and there is no way to fold them back-in for the duration of ur awayness from the vehicle. For example, when I park at the airport for several days or a week or so, i will check on my vehicle using 3D view, the mirrors that were folded in when i left are now folded out. Parking spaces are close and consumers have luggage and kids they are loading in and out of their vehicles. If the mirrors are unfolded outwards, rhis presents an increased risk do vehicle damage to YOUR car. Anyway, I remain hopeful these provlems will be corrected to make this app a much more stable and enjoyable experience. Get the app but it wisely.
Glitchy: wonderful features rarely work
Plan to spend hours logging in and out in hopes of resetting. Been using this app couple years with 4 cars. Used to autopopulate nav with next destination in your phones calendar. No more. Used to show your calendars on the iDrive screen but did not allow you to set destination by clicking on an event. Used to reliably allow remote unlock and lock. No more. Used to allow remote 3D view. Now gets stuck and always shows your vehicle in a showroom at Welt. Shows your calendar destinations under a tab called Activity and shows your past activity under a tab called destinations. Both lists not in any chronological order. Some pages show real time fuel level and range door lock status while other pages haven’t updated these data in 3 weeks. Disappointing that such useful potential is being neglected by such a prestigious company.
We just purchased an i3 an we’re excited to have this app/feature as we use a very similar service often in our other (non-BMW) vehicle. Car was purchased on 4/27 and I used the destination feature on 4/29 and was able to lock the doors. It has literally failed EVERY SINGLE command that it has been requested since that day.
At first I chalked it up to user error and didn’t think much of the problem. At least I was able to see the somewhat updated mileage/battery with the car; something that is SUPER important with an electrical vehicle, so it wasn’t a big deal. Then my mother-in-law got stuck trying to charge the car, with the “Low Cost” charging feature enabled that kept the car from immediately charging. I thought, cool, no biggie, I can swap that from the app! WRONG! It’s a feature I the app, but that doesn’t work either. This caused me to drive 25 miles to my mother-in-law to swap the settings in the car, in part because the helpfulness (or lack of) of this app failing. Now all of a sudden without changing anything, it no longer shows the car in the app and request that “Add Vehicle” in order to get the best experience. However, just like every other upset soul on here, it gives an error when I try to RE-Add my vehicle to the app. So, now after all of that, I can’t use the app for ANYTHING at all. C’mon.
