There is no updating of the location, mileage, or fuel level. I’ve done all I can think of right now, the petrol tank is full, and I haven’t disconnected and reconnected the car app.

It’s difficult. Since I just tried to drag the screen down to refresh it and it still displays the time from 3am, I’m not even convinced it was a complete success.

Enter the vehicle, select an installed app, and then press the options button on the lower console, which is located behind the iDrive wheel. A screen with a few options will appear. That choice ought to be chosen already. Update services and apps.

To choose it, click the iDrive wheel. It takes a few seconds for the update. the radio volume hardware button located below the infotainment screen, and then press and hold it. I held mine in for around two minutes, during which time the car stereo twice reset. Click it again to turn it on.

It takes a lot of effort. But I’ve been unable to lower the screen and force a refresh. It still informs me that it was last refreshed at around 3am.

Over the weekend, the app was causing me problems as well. Sincerely, I believe it has to do with BMW systems. Even the remote camera has recently been crap, but mine is back to normal.

I haven’t yet had a remote camera operate for me. Since picking up my car, I’ve tried it every day. I haven’t been able to make it work even once.

I’ve already given up on the remote camera for the time being because I haven’t driven the M4 in two weeks and can’t get the app to update in the garage.

BMW ConnectedDrive: Does it track?

Does anyone have knowledge of ConnectedDrive Remote Services? A secondhand M235i was my recent purchase. Although I am aware that BMW ConnectedDrive is not a tracker, I still wanted to be able to locate my car, and this feature (Remote Services) allows me to do so without being constrained by a 1.5 mile radius.

Everything is OK, and it was incredibly helpful when my house was broken into and my baby was taken hostage. I was unable to follow the car while it was moving, but once it stopped, I was able to find it, and the police were able to recover it five miles distant. I was able to retrieve my automobile entirely because of Remote Services. Time travel 2.5 weeks. My Android phone’s BMW ConnectedDrive app has been upgraded. I tried to find my car while I was at work. “Vehicle was too far away to establish location,” it reported. I briefly panicked, believing my automobile had been taken. When I was more composed, I downloaded Fake GPS to make my phone think it was near my residence. And there you have it, my automobile was found by BMW Connected. My blood was boiling, so I wrote BMW a series of stern emails. Still waiting for them to respond.

Even though BMW has all the tools and technology to assist the owner in recovering a stolen vehicle, they choose not to do so. I requested assistance from Emergency Services after my automobile was taken. The operator informed me that she could only find my car if I was actually in it. It is understandable why auto thieves favor BMW so much. BMW supports the theft of these vehicles.

Cost of renewing BMW Connected Drive

My ConnectedDrive service would shortly expire, I was informed. I believe it came free with the purchase of a car for three years. After that, you must pay $199 per year for safety and $398 per year for convenience and safety.
