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. ***

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
BMW iPhone Interface is bad
BMW needs to move away from trying to interface to phones and just add a dock and mirroring software so customers can use their iPhones or iPads as the primary devices. The BMW interfaces are plagued with bugs, lack of current updates and overall lack of concern to rectify incompatibilities.
I've tried working with the Genius team, but they have no direct communication with BMW development and lack the ability to answer customer questions regarding missing functionality advertised as working.
I love driving the BMW vehicle but the technology package is a total waste of money in its current design. The interface in my Ford premium truck is actually better. The intent of the technology package offerings is well intentioned, but the execution and real life day to day experience is not acceptable for a luxury automobile.
Not working right!!
Not working correctly after the update. Before I was able to have this app running listening to web radio and when I wanted to listen to media from my phone I would just press the media button next to the I drive and I could switch to it without problems. Now I have this app running with web radio and when I press the media button I'm still connected to the web radio and cant listen to my phone's media. Please fix it!!
Agree with other reviewer
I never use this because it's a hassle. You cannot use your phone while using this app since it doesn't work in the background (even though the update says it fixed this). Much easier to connect phone via bluetooth and deal with the album art of the first song being stuck on the screen. If they ever fix this to work in the background I would consider using it.
