Ratings and Reviews
A good start!
The navigation is actually quite good, save for some peculiar routing from time to time eg: telling you to stay all the way left in the express lane, then suddenly telling you to exit the highway, which is six lanes wide. And when it tells you to exit, it says "out" of the highway, not "off". It would be great if the app would (or could) auto open and connect to the bike once detected, as is now, it connects to the TFT approximately 75% of the time.
The app largely makes the BMW navigator (V & VI) redundant unless you're going on an extended trip with waypoints/shaping points, or off-road. For day-to-day use, the TFT & app is all you need.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your review. We were not able to reproduce the issue you mentioned. It would be great if you would get in touch with us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
V1.5 NOT a “brand new app design”
I just updated to v1.5 which is supposedly a “brand new app design” according to the release information — except the app still looks and functions EXACTLY the same as the prior versions. At least it still connects to the bike properly (1200GS) and does what it’s supposed to do. But where is the brand new app design?
Am I missing something, BMW?
So when Iphone is connected via Bluetooth, this app still won’t connect all the time. I’d say 30% it connects after messing around with it. The bike sees the phone and connects great, it just the app....for navigation.... it will not find the bike at all. Have got it to work once and it is super! Just trying to help. BMW... unbelievable bikes. When I did get the nav(connect) to work.. it did work great. Any assistance would be appreciated by many.
