    It's a bit difficult to do the initial setup until you realise you need to go into the iDrive option and press to turn on USB accessory mode. Now it just works and I like the EcoPro analyser.

    I have an LG G3.running kitkat. A brand new bmw 5 series. Thankfully no issues. You have to have bmw apps as a built in option in the car for it to work. You have to use the oem cable of your device and not a 3rd party one. If you have all of the above. You must keep the app you want to use open on your phone for it to work. (FB & Twitter) if all fails you need to contact bmw support from your ca

    and an epic one. For such an extraorbitant price of the extras you pay with bmw cars is the missing functionality for older (not a year old????) cars simply scandalous. This is very honourless way to make money.
