BMW dumping its flagship customers

I was told today by the concierge that when my subscription runs out end of june, I am screwed! they are not renewing subscriptions! They said that if I hit the BMW assist button it will dial 911! I am sure the police will love answering all the BMW car problems!

I'm going to miss connect to drive feature. I love locating places and sending them directly to the car. I'm already on the look out for a 14 740 before next year. Hopefully I can locate one soon if not G12 may hit my radar.

Bro this news was very disappointing to hear only days after ownership of this car . I emailed my SA Friday in disgust. Not at him but BMW themselves.

I have not used this feature in over 10 years. Does this mean that if your get into a major accident, BMW does not respond?

No, it is not a big deal to MOST of us owners. I have rolling wi-fi in my glove box so I just pull up the addresses I need on my tablet then enter them in the navigation, DONE. Simple resolution. It is not a big deal at all. I do not even use that function and many of us owners do not use it either. On top of it, if you have a major accident you can rest assure that bystanders will be all over their phones calling 911.

I use that function all the time, roam around on google maps then send to my car, I also use the concierge a lot when I travel. And if we have an accident, according to bmw, the bmw assist button will dial 911

The bigger issue is that you paid for it already - and they aren't giving any refunds either. BMW is tone deaf when it comes to their owners.

There is no coma missing. I put the coma in the correct place. Then I said to vent away. You can't write it, "My bad, vent, away'"

What if I'm on a windy country road at 2am and my car veers off the side of the road. Who will see me?

True Story Time...

My best friend fell asleep at the wheel, drove off the road and his car ended stuck between two trees about 50 feet above the floor of wooded area.

He was awaken by the "onstar" operator asking him if he needed help.

Without "onstar" he's pretty sure no one would have ever seen him up there in the trees.

OK. I'm retrofitting "onstar" to my BMW! Anybody selling Chevy round badges too?

Well it is simple why they are deprecating it.

Thank AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile for upgrading the cell phone networks to LTE and using the old 2G/3G radio spectrum for LTE which means, 2G goes the way of the dinosaurs. Technology progresses.
