BMW Connected


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).
For compatible smartphones, see www.bmw.com/bluetooth.

To use a BMW Connected app in your BMW, connect the smartphone to the car using either the snap-in adapter or the USB connection in the centre console, and follow the instructions from the connection assistant, which you will find in the Connected Drive menu.

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.

Nexus 5 - plays music but won;t play podcasts 420d (2013) Plays music fine, but not podcasts. Menu option is there in the Audio Player in the car, Podcasts are on the Nexus 5 and the USB cable connected. Music searches and plays fine, but Audi Player won't pick up the Podcasts for some reason. All help/suggestions welcome. *BMW!!!! are you listening/reading these reviews?!?!?*

What a joke. Makes BMW look like such a second rate company. The app is practically useless on the android platform.
