Also, can you not shut the rear gate from inside the car like opening?
Not certain about Apps as I have not activated it but the rear lift open/close is the same on ALL US-based BMW's & that is "open ONLY" due (supposedly) to safety concerns. However, it has been fairly well documented that the interior button CAN be programmed to also close as well. You just won't be able to have anyone from an authorized BMW dealership in the US do it for you. You will need to have an Independent service guy do it or you could do it yourself.
