Agree.

 

I seem to rarely have problems with my cars and have been using Connected Drive for years.

 

OK connection goes down occasionally but that can happen with any provider.

 

It appears that BMW seem to give Android low priority however (needless to say I always been iOS).

I agree that BMW prioritise iOS heavily but it seems a strange decision when the worldwide split for mobile OS is around 72% Andoid, 27% iOS. In the UK it's 51% iOs and 48% Android.

Yes of course it is ;).

 

Luckily the software in the car’s various ECUs is tested reasonably well :D .

Been trying to send address to my 2020 car today via the new my Bmw app and the car keeps telling me I need to sign into contacted drive, but there's no option to sing in on the car? Am I missing something?

Don’t know if this helps:

No guarantee that It’s correct - but I’ve never had a problem in sending addresses to my car (I suppose that I would have signed in (somewhere) at initial set up).

 

Sorry noticed that you wanted to SING in the car.......?!
