And I'm guessing my '13 isn't supported and they aren't updating the old "connected" app.

Last I checked, Canada was part of North America. I know 'mericuh is the Center of the universe and all....
Apologies.. I've confused a country with a continent. I'm Australian.. forgive me for not caring much for anything

I'll let the others know that Canada is actually America.

As far as geography is concerned, Canada is in North America and yet the app is not available to be used here. Pure bullshit on BMW's part - there is no reason Canada should be a different operation with different apps, etc. and no support.

It doesn't even work in North America. Proper title should be BMW Connected North America unless you live in Canada or Mexico.

And, of course, for those of us who use an iPod tethered to our Android phone to get around BMW's nonsensical hatred for everything non-Apple, the iOS app won't work on iPods.

I won't use the new one since it uses your location 24-7. Kills your battery. I'm still using the old one.

Clearly the long term plan is to stop supplying Canada with BMW's.......this is just stage 1.

I asked because I'm an American and I just bought my US Spec car which should have the same working options as if I was in the states.

The Android one already received an update for "minor bug fixes". Maybe BMW will actually be keeping the app updated and working this time!


Probably not.

No update on the connected app on app store. Still stuck with the last version.

For me it wasn't an update, it was a new app with a blue icon that didn't uninstall the old app. I found the updated version by searching for "BMW connected North America".

I see that the one installed is the current one. But I don't see my range on the app. On the app info, it says that it shows range and other stuff for i models only, but the images supplemented along with the app shows otherwise. It shows some 320i with range and fuel left in the car.
Some confusion there.

Having a us spec car outside of the us will not work with connected apps. Having lived in Germany with my us spec m4, I had to wait for the my return to the states before it would activate. It's not something that can be turned on either while overseas as it has to do with your account and SIM card. Overseas sales most of the time fail to mention this detail upfront. Sucks.

Check "Next Trip" icon lower left for range information. I'll try to attach image capture and post.

So lame, it's not like there is an actual content license issue.

Some days I want to leave everything to go work at BMW and fix all of their easy software, cybersecurity and electronics integration issues ... just so I can fully enjoy my vehicles.

Would be a huge pay cut but would be satisfying!!

I tried everything in there. I am only able to see the old UI, not the new one. Attaching my image.
Also I am on the latest iOS 10.0.2 on iPhone 7 plus. App is also updated to the latest version.
All my services are up and running. :

Have heard that right now iPhone 7 is no bueno for new iDrive.
That is probably the problem.
