X3 and Iphone integration (My BMW Remote)

Hi all,

Just wanted to let you know that the BMW Iphone app (My BMW Remote) works great with the X3. It's a bit tricky to download it from the UK-ITunes store, but once you install it, you can lock/unlock your doors, honk the horn, flash the lights, get the current location of the car. Really cool. I wasn't able yet to send the google search results to the car. Also I did not yet get the BMW Connected app to work yet.

Anyone has any luck getting BMWConnected to work on the X3?

I have the 35i X3 silver, fully loaded, with the convenience plan.

Hi, how did you download the app from the UK-iTunes store?

Thanks

Be a hero and post instructions on how to get the app from UK iTunes, install on a US iPhone and activate it. That would be cool to have!

OK, pretty easy to get from the UK ITunes store.

1. Follow this link: http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/my-bm...387675830?mt=8
2. Click "View in iTunes"
3. Click "View in iTunes"
4. Choose "Create new account"
5. You will need to provide a valid email address and a UK physical address, etc.
6. Once you have created a UK iTunes account you will be able to download the app and sync it to your iPhone.

I did it this morning but haven't had an opportunity to try it out yet.
