And now, a bit of fine print:

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 and Please refer to 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. The application is displayed in the car in the language configured for the vehicle.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can decrease battery life.
