Thank you for Recommendation.

Manual recording is achieved by pressing the camera button whilst engine is running.

Just got my iDrive updated during a service visit from 7/2019.39 to 03/2020.58. Following the update, Drive Recorder now shows up as an available option with the 1 month free trial on the website. I donít have Driving Assistant Pro, but do have Parking Assist package.

Does anyone know if this works only with cars with panorama view, or will also work with cars that just have the AEB camera?

I'd like to think the app stops working.

Do you have Parking Assistance Package, the one with 360 degree cameras? I think that was required. I have a 2021 M340ix and was able to purchase it when it first came out.

I seen this as an option on my BMW app to purchase but wasn't sure how it worked. This would be perfect for me so i will have to look into this. My 2020 M340 does have the Parking assist package with the 360 camera and i have the newest software on my vehicle that was updated a few months ago. I will have to check this out.

Ordered it last night for 35$ CDN for 1 year. I prefer to pay this than have an dash cam in the way with wires flying around. The BMW Video app wasn't there last night but when i started my vehicle this morning and went into the apps of my car it was there!

My only issue would be the quality of the video. I've seen the Tesla ones and they're not the best. Hopefully BMW's is better than that.

I looked at the video on my dash screen and quality looked pretty good! I haven't put it in a USB stick to check it out yet though but I will try it out
