My BMW Remote Mobile App Now Available

New mobile app lets customers access remote services for their vehicles.

Woodcliff Lake, NJ
– February 15, 2012… BMW announced that the My BMW Remote app is available for Apple iOS devices beginning today. This app allows many BMW customers to access remote features for their vehicle by using their mobile device and the power of BMW Assist. These features include remotely locking and unlocking of doors, getting the location of their parked vehicle, and sending Google Local Search results to their vehicle. Additionally, some customers will even be able to send a command to sound the horn or flash the headlights of their BMW.

Customers who have an active BMW Assist Safety Plan, a compatible vehicle, and an Apple device running iOS 4.0 or later will be able to download the app to their device starting today via the Apple iTunes store. No changes are required to their BMW. My BMW Remote operates on the customer’s mobile device, sending remote commands to their BMW.

My BMW Remote includes the following functions in detail:


VEHICLE POSITION – If the vehicle’s ignition is off, and it is located within 0.6 miles (1km) of the mobile device, the current vehicle location can be displayed on a map in the mobile device:

- 1 Series, 3 Series, 5 Series, or 6 Series produced March 2008 or later
- X5 SAV or X6 SAC produced April 2008 or later
- Z4 Roadster from Model Year 2009 or later

The following vehicles will have Remote Horn and Remote Flash Headlights available, in addition to Remote Door Lock & Unlock, Google Local Search, and Vehicle Position:

Just got this but haven't used it yet. Pretty cool! How come the 2012 135i isn't on the list for everything? I have BMW apps and everything.

Yes! Finally! I've been using the "UK version" but it has been spotty, at best. Can't wait to see if this one works!

So I just called BMW Assist since I couldn't log in. They were slammed (waited on hold for almost 15 minutes) and the girl that I talked to said she has been doing these calls all day for this app.

A couple of things she told me:

1. When you enter in your username, it should be your email address that you used to register for the BMW assist account (see the other thread on this here) and that you need to do it IN ALL CAPS.

2. She also said that when you call BMW Assist to change it, it could take up to 24 hours for the new password to register in the BMW USA system...so there could be a delay.

3. If your account is locked because you entered in the wrong information too many times, they will need to reset your password. There is apparently no way around that.

Just thought I'd pass that along for others that may have issues.

I've had nothing but issues with it. I did exactly what they said and it still won't work. Waited on hold for 20 minutes and it actually locked me out of my account. Not impressed.

Lock/unlock works good on my 2011 3 but the Google send to car feature still does not work. Anybody else get it working yet?

Android

With Android dominating US and world-wide market share it's silly to not do a simultaneous release on at least iOS and Android.

I've been using send-to-car feature for a while without an app using Google Maps. Enter an address in Google Maps, click on the map pin, when the box pops up select 'More' and in the dialogue click 'Send', when the window pops select 'Car', under 'BMW Assist account name: ' enter the email address you registered with BMW.

You don't need BMW Assist to use that feature. Let me know how it works out.

Cars that don't have the horn or headlights are missing key hardware in the car. It cannot be retrofitted.

So I thought I read somewhere that they had been planning on releasing an Android version of this app last year, but I suppose it didn't end up happening.

Here's an autoblog post about it.

Thx for the color, but having tried all variations (caps or no caps), still no go. Should be same username and password as in MyBMW, but doesn't work
