Too many flaws. Will be worth it when they sort it out.

Firstly, sometimes it'll work, then for days it won't- or it'll action the command but not confirm that it has been done.
Secondly, the ability to sound the horn would be one of the most useful functions to locate your car in a crowded car park ( you can flash the lights, once, but that's no use if you're not in a position to see them!) but no, not in the UK.
Thirdly, the function to locate the car could be great, but for some unfathomable reason, it'll not show the location if the car is more than 2.5km or so from your own location. Good grief. You've gone to so many lengths to prove that it's your car, so what reasons could there be to deny information about where it is!
Lastly, the service isn't free. BMW expect you to pay £50 for the privilege of finding out that it doesn't really do what you need.
Worth it? Honestly, no, not yet.

Nice idea, let down by a handful of flaws.

Sadly Disappointing

This app could be really good. I like that it uses the bio metrics for security, that it depicts my actual vehicle model and colour and that you can send directions to the sat Nav. However, I don't understand why most of the screen is taken up by the precondition function that I don't believe is even an option on UK vehicles. I don't understand why it doesn't show if the doors are locked, if the windows are closed, the range left in the tank, previous journeys, etc. This is useful information that can be seen on other manufacturers apps i.e. Landrover.

The functionality of the app is not very intuitive either. The "status" tab doesn't actually show the status of the vehicle at all. It is in actual fact where you send directions to the vehicle from. Surely this function should be in the "maps" tab but instead the maps tab only shows where the vehicle is on a map.

The above mentioned missing functions found in other manufacturers apps should be shown in the status tab with the option to lock the doors. Sending directions and vehicle location should be in maps. Pre conditioning should either be omitted for UK or at least optional. It should not be the main feature like it is currently in the remote tab.

Please sort this out BMW. It's a massive let down considering you're a premium brand.
