Changed my password because my account was locked and I was able to login about 30 mins later. Communication with the car is really slow though, about 3 mins for a response.

OK that was the initial setup .... now the ap comes up asking for only 4 digits ... not sure if that is unique to my 4 digit password or not?

The password and the PIN are two separate and distinct items. The PIN is the user-defined local security to get into the app, much like the PIN for securing the iPhone. The password is related to the more encompassing BMW Assist account that was set-up when the car was activated. This Assist name and password has plagued owners forever and has a lot to do with the disconnect between the CA setting up the account at car delivery and BMW.

I didn't need to use caps although I was told it needs to be. Once you are successful you will need to input a 4 digit code. Further usage only requires the code to log in.

3. It would take a minimum 30 min and up to 24 hours before the change in PIN takes effect and the account to unlock.
4. As of right now only one iPhone per vehicle. She wasn't sure when multiple iPhones would be able to access the same vehicle.

I am not saying ozarkgolfer is wrong. It seems BMW Assist is not communicating clearly right now. Probably because they are swamped with phone calls (we were on hold for 18min before reaching a representative).
Update
Mine now works (using the US iTunes app) but it took lower case to make it happen. I am happy I can google from the iphone and pass it on to the car.

So the app is showing my car's location where I am...when in fact the car is about a mile away at the dealer.

What gives? Is there a "refresh"?

Thinking of making the car honk at the dealership just to screw with the service guys. LOL.

That's the main feature I am waiting for. I once try to input an address to the GPS directly thru iDrive...it cannot find the street/location from the choices, but I try that feature last night using google search within the Apps and...Bam...it send it right to the GPS within a minute I send it thru my iPhone

Once the UK app updated in iTunes, I could not get the features to work. It's working fine from the US app. YMMV.

When the navigation starts giving directions, just increase it using your vol knob for the radio.

I keep getting an error trying to send from Google search. Anyone else getting this? Does the car need to be on and running for it to work?
