If I could find it, I'd download it. It doesn't seem to be in the Android market.

Looks like they didn't include all of the information with the release. It is actually slated for an "autumn" release. So real soon, just not yet.

I do not think that the My BMW Remote application is available in the United States market. One of the articles makes reference to the application that is already in use on the iPhone, but to my knowledge there is no such application in the United States. (I just checked the App Store and could not find the My BMW Remote App.) The only application that I am aware of is the one that is available in the iTunes store for the United Kingdom, which is not intended for use in the U.S.A. (but some have found a way to download it and use it in the U.S.A.). If for some reason I am in error and there is an application that is now available in the U.S.A., please let me know because I would like to download it to my iPhone.

There is a BMW app for the iPhone in the US. I have it on a Touch, which I tether to my EVO for internet connectivity. It has BMW apps (Web Radio, Facebook, Twitter - Pandora has to be turned on separately) and the Office apps including calendar. I'd really rather be able to use the EVO by itself, so I'm waiting anxiously for the Android version. Hopefully it has matching functionality.

Sounds like you are talking about the BMW Connected App, which is only for builds after March 2011 with the 6NR option. This is not the same as the My BMW Remote App and the BMW Connected App performs different functions.

Well, that would indeed describe the situation. This also means that the Android app will have the fun but not as desirable (for me) features, alas. Once again, panacea is two updates away.

Anyone hear any updates about this? It's been over six months since this news was announced, and nothing.

Audi doesn't have an Android app either...

Besides a roadside assistance app that BMW has for Android as well.

Do not start on this again.......
They are both nice cars!
And LADA does not have any gimmicks at all.
So, does that mean it is for that reason it is a lesser car???

I had seen on a BMW PR that this was coming soon, but it was in connection with the 2013 models. Good to know that it will apply to earlier builds as well.

I was just responding to our resident Audi lover, who was assuming it was BMW way behind the curve.

Relating to the app, unfortunately it is not available in the US yet.

Here is the direct link to the app in the Play Store
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...com.bmw.remote

The screen has this message:


This app is incompatible with your T-Mobile HTC T-Mobile G2.


T-Mobile HTC T-Mobile G2
This item cannot be installed in your device's country.


And when I try to download it I get the message "This item isn't available in your country."

That's exactly what I see.

I just clicked on the direct link above, and as soon as I turned my phone on yesterday night it installed to the phone. Also you should be able to get to it in the market. Don't have my android now to check.

No, it's an AT&T phone.

I can't find the app by searching any of the marketplace options, including Google Play. Only when I click on the direct link supplied above. When i do get there from the link, I'm being prevented from downloading, which probably explains why It doesn't come up with a search.
