It's goofy. It says "Secret knowledge might not be activated".

Updated my iPhone with iOS 7.1.2 two days ago. Did you all recently update your iOS too? Wondering if this is the cause?

It looks like I can not longer send addresses from Google using the desktop computer either.

Sent an address, message was "Message successfully sent to car" then nothing.

Was fine up until Thursday.

I came to the conclusion it was a BMW screwup earlier today since I updated my iPad to v7.1.2 and Remote stopped working. So I try my iPhone 4s which is still at v7.1.1 and it does not work on my iPhone either. I don't use it that much, but it is nice to know I can lock the car during one of those OCD moments of "did I or didn't I?"

Here is what we are seeing:

It's nice that you guys can at least get into your apps. I have a few wrong password attempts and my account is still locked 3 weeks later. After countless calls they said that the issue was referred to BMW NA... whatever that means.

Thank you for posting this. I thought 7.1.2 blew it up, but haven't confirmed. This saved me...

... then it appears to be back up. "Data Transfer Successful" was *incredibly* fast a moment ago.

I did it on 7.1.2 (iPhone) and 6.1.3 (iPod Touch 5).

Now, if they would just give us back Climate Control in the US and show me where my car is when it is more than .6 of a mile away!
