Experience driving pleasure down to tenths of a second and m/s²: "The BMW M Laptimer" is a race track data analysis tool, including automatic calculation of lap times. The app records sensor data directly from your BMW, and uses these values to help you analyse your driving style. This allows you to increase precision and dexterity and, in turn, improve your lap times. You can also record your journeys off the race track, such as road trips with your racing community.

The saved results can be posted as snapshots on all social media platforms. Or for even more personal race comparisons, you can exchange your recordings with friends and then compare them curve-by-curve.

Feature overview:

• Live Information of current recording (live laptiming only available in OS7 from 11/2020 on).

• Drift analysis for vehicles with M Drift Analyzer functionality.

• Record videos with synchronized data overlay using the integrated iPhone camera (not available in every country).

• Post-Drive analysis with laptime table, g-force diagram and individually configurable graphs.

• Import – export functionality to share and compare results.

• Social-Media sharing.

• BMW Connected Drive garage with all your vehicles.


Please note:

The BMW M Laptimer is optimized for 2014 and newer vehicles with the options Navigationsystem Professional (S0609) or Live Cockpit Professional (S06U3) in combination with BMW Connected Drive Services (S06C3/4). It is compatible with iPhone 6s or higher and supports OS7 vehicles from 11/2020 on. While app’s features will work as expected on many 2013 and earlier vehicles, some vehicles or older iPhone generations may be incompatible with certain functions.

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. Please refer to www.bmw.com/bluetooth regarding the compatibility of your smartphone with BMW cars.

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. For vehicles with Navigationsystem Professional (S0609) the application inside the car is displayed in the language configured for the phone.

Difficult to set up

App seems to have really great features. But it simply won’t load on I drive and I’ve worked with customer support through connectdrive to help troubleshoot. There is no clear way on how to get the app to load on idrive. Loads on iPhone perfectly.

Does this work on the new G20 3 series?

If this app is compatible, where should it be in the iDrive?

Why login?!

Why does BMW USA now require users to login for all their apps (this one, but also their Driver’s Guides)? As if our privacy is not enough infringed upon already. Guess what, BMW: if somebody uses one of your apps, it is because they own one of your cars, so why do you feel you need a login?! You should direct your efforts towards reducing recalls on just-released models instead...
