Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Use Twitter, calendar and other vehicle-related functions with ease in your BMW.
With BMW Connected, BMW drivers can safely and easily access general and vehicle-related functions during, before and after making a journey with their BMW. This requires a BMW vehicle equipped with the special feature 'Apps' or 'ConnectedDrive Services' (varies according to model and market). For compatible smartphones, see www.bmw.com/bluetooth.
To use a BMW Connected app in your BMW, connect the smartphone to the car using either the snap-in adapter or the USB connection in the centre console, and run the connection assistant, which you will find in the Connected Drive menu.
*** Note: Due to a change in iOS 7, switching between apps using the iDrive system is currently limited. ***
Displays the latest status messages, personal favourites, and community trends in your car. Moreover, pre-defined texts which are able to access current vehicle information can be sent during the journey.

Display calendar entries in your car and call meeting-participants whenever you need to. Appointment details can be read out through the audio system. Addresses stored in calendar entries can be exported into the optional navigation system as destinations.
The ideal travel companion. Discover interesting Wikipedia articles relevant to the sights and localities in your destination region.

ECO PRO analyser
Rates your driving style and gives you advice as to how to drive even more efficiently. It only works in automobiles fitted with the latest generation of the navigation system Professional (depending on series, from 7/2012) and the navigation system Business (depending on series, from 11/2013). What is more, the ECO PRO Analyser is not supported by the following models: all BMW M and BMW i models, and BMW models without the ECO PRO mode.
Last mile navigation
Transfers your navigation destination and the position data of your car to your smartphone and continues your navigation even after you have left the vehicle. Makes it easy to find your car when returning to it at your destination.
The application is displayed in the car in the language configured for the vehicle.
An 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.
Restricted functionality is possible in the event of insufficient data transfer speed and with volume-based bandwidth restrictions of the network operator. Moreover, it is possible that selected functions based on services supplied by third-party providers will not be available at all times or may be subject to change. The specific conditions of these providers must be observed.
For the aforementioned reasons, BMW is unable to warranty unrestricted compatibility and functionality of your mobile device in combination with the vehicle interface.
What's New in Version 2.5
· Improved connectivity (works in the car when phone is locked / app is in the background)
· Removed Facebook feature due to Facebook policy change
· Fixed bugs regarding ECO PRO Analyser / Twitter login problems
· Minor bug fixes
Spotify broken, no more Facebook
The only reason I used this app was for Spotify and Facebook/Twitter. Facebook is no longer available and when choosing Spotify the app crashes.
I don't like this app
A waste of money
