BMW Connected Drive on Android but it doesnt work?!

Hello All,

I have a F30 2013 with Nav BMW Apps and all. I used to use my iphone and had flawless access and operation to the BMW Connected drive and BMW apps. Now as soon as I saw the app came out for Android, I bought the Galaxy S4, downloaded app and it doesn't work. Does anyone know what the deal is with this? I know the app says car is supposed to be manufacturer after July 2013 and mine was Dec 2012 but isn't there a way to circumvent this, update firmware in the NAV?

You answered your own question... there is new hardware and software from July 2013-on.

Hardware and software that your car does not have and no dealer can retrofit.

We learn a lot of things through this forum that are not released through BMW in the owners manual or any updates. Its simply done by people on this forums discovering them by either finding a fix or through trial and error. This is why I ask, on BMWs side they sound just like you, basically tough sh!t, but a new car but I was hoping someone had a work around.

FYI the hardware is not new, just the software. Hardware just has a few updates such as sim slot. If you add a new graphics card to your computer and upgrade it to windows 8, its not a new computer even though it might look and feel like one.
