Ratings and Reviews
This app is really cool. I’m not sure why the ratings are so low, but I think it might be because your need to open the app on your phone BEFORE you turn your bike on. Otherwise, it won’t link up to your bike.
The trips feature is really cool. It maps your entire ride/trip and you have the ability to have your pictures taken on that ride marked on the map of where it was taken. It has information like max speed, temperature and total distance. It tells you how far you are from the next gas station and tracks the ride even when your out of cell reception. The only thing I would like to was addressed in a future update would be to have the ability to change tire pressure from BAR to PSI on the app.
This is a must have for anyone with the TFT screen.

Hi and many thanks for your review! We are happy you like the app! Ride safely!
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.

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 email@example.com.
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.
