    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. This requires a BMW vehicle with a production date of July 2013 or later, equipped with the special feature 'Apps' or 'ConnectedDrive Services' (varies according to model and market). 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).

    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.

    Why is BMW kicking Android to the curb? They advertise that they have all these connected apps but the reality is they just support Apple products.
