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.
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.
Remote services don’t work
I was excited when I bought my new BMW that this one would have remote start and other remote actions and status views. It worked great for about 3 days and then stopped. I have called support 3 times and talked with local dealership. I am told it is a known issue. They give me all these steps such as updating Bmw connected in the car, removing the app from my phone, waiting a couple hours and then it is supposed to work but they tell me in the same sentence that it will go down again. Well, the steps only worked one time out of many, and yes the app stopped doing remote updates and commands after a couple hours, never to work again even after performing the steps. It has been over 3 months, not for sure how long it was going on before I bought my car. It is unthinkable that they would leave a system not working for so long. There are other glitches with the in car system such as automatic date time sync setting around 3 days in the future, heads up display music list does not always work with Apple car play without re-selecting a play list and a couple other oddities.
I still love the performance and handling of my BMW but they need to improve quality and support or my next car will not be a BMW.
