Really useful app


Really enjoyed using this app so far, following a distracting discussion with the driver of an identical Bmw I realised I’d walked into a supermarket and hadn’t locked the car, tried the app and it worked great, my car was safe and locked when I got out, also really like the idea of locate my vehicle, it puts my mind at rest from a security point of view, and the ability to send navigation plans to the car so it is waiting for me when I get in is great too.

I do however think there are loads of features that would be easy to implement but are lacking for no apparent reason, why can’t I lift the sunroof on a hot day to stop my dashboard melting, or drop it when it starts raining, or check onboard computer data such as mpg, activate the heated rear screen etc.?

Handy app for the BMW 330e


The usefulness of this app very much depends on what options you have with your car and what services you have subscribed to, which probably explains the wide range of comments on here. For me, with a 330e, it's a really handy app. I can pre-warm or cool the car, check the status of the battery charge and quickly see if the doors, boot (and bonnet) are unlocked / open. You can also send destinations to the car's sat nav from the app, which saves time when you get into the car. It's also easier to set departure time and off-peak charging through the app than it is in the car. All in all, I've found it really handy.

Works - but could do more


Really useful, and love being able to lock and unlock the car remotely. Although I did leave the drivers door ajar once on the driveway and the app said the car was locked !
I’d like to see more history for the statistics, I like looKing at the consumption I got on the last journey but would be useful to see the last weeks worth. The onboard computer shows a very different average consumption.
Sometimes I have to log out and log in again as I’m told my vehicle is still in motion. (Even when it’s been parked on my drive for 30 minutes )
