    With BMW Connected, BMW drivers can safely and easily access general and vehicle-related functions during, before and after making a journey with their BMW.

The following models, which were also produced after July 2013, are excluded: 1 Series Convertible, 1 Series Coupé, 3 Series Convertible (model from 2010), X1 (model from 2009), X5 (Model from 2006), X6 (model from 2008) and Z4 (model from 2009).

    An Internet connection is required. This can incur costs (for example due to roaming) in accordance with the contract concluded between the customer and the network operator. Please observe national requirements and conditions specific to the country you are in.
    Restricted functionality is possible in the event of insufficient data transfer speed and with volume-based bandwidth restrictions of the network operator. Moreover, it is possible that selected functions based on services supplied by third-party providers will not be available at all times or may be subject to change. The specific conditions of these providers must be observed.
    For the aforementioned reasons, BMW is unable to warranty unrestricted compatibility and functionality of your mobile device in combination with the vehicle interface.

    Piece of crap. Music Player doesn't work. The supposedly BMW compatible apps doesn't show up. The car gives an error message saying the app isn't compatible with the car and suggests to update the app, but no update exists. Utter and total app fail.

    This is a useless app and does not work on any of my android devices. The developer needs to check how this can be integrated in the software since the BMW connected cannot update itself unless the car is given to the service center for updates. BMW should endeavour to have the soft patches of the maps and other updates available online.
