    Doesn’t work.  Won’t accept MyBMW login credentials and now tells me the my ConnectedDrive account (that I don’t have) has been locked

       Same here!  I’ve been working on this for an hour now and it isn’t working yet.  I think it might have something to do with me having a pre-existing BMWUSA Account and also setting up BMW Assist last week on the new car.  The password I used last week is different than the password I already had for the BMWUSA Account so there must be something I have to get set up through BMW Assist.  If I figure it out, I’ll come back and post the fix.

    Despite what BMW thinks about Apple products, the majority of smartphones are Android based.

    I have a 335 Coupe.  Will I be able to have the lights and horn feature too?  The unlock feature works great.

    I didn’t have initial problems with PIN, but a quick call to BMW Assist got that working within 30 minutes.

      The M3 Forum has info on which features work in the US:

      For me, I only have the remote lock / unlock and vehicle finder features.  Nothing else is activated in the US.  I’m pretty sure it’s the same for you.
