Huge cost for limited/no value
Of very limited use with the ridiculous 1500 metre limit on locating your vehicle and no tracking of vehicle in motion due to Google imposed privacy. Such irony given the level of snooping and tracking Google are known for in their internet search engine! Never used the app except to experiment when I first got the car. BMW disabled it after 3 years and demanded more than £100 a year thereafter. That's an exorbitant in app purchase and for such an unhelpful function and the decision to delete it from my iPhone was easy.
Works as advertised
The 1500m limit has been removed off some cars (click on GPS tracking in the car's settings). Does the other features as described. I'm not going to talk about the cost of the package, just the app. Please keep up the development BMW.
Getting there again much better.
Using iPhone 6+ on IOS 8.1 all seems much better now Google search working much better and remote commands seem to be quicker now please don't break it again.
