I had the same issue, and it's been working for me.
Ah thanks mate let me try , twice I heard a clunk and thought what was that, and it was the seatbelt unclipping hahah

May have already been mentioned but when using the sat nav and pressing the map button it repeats the last instruction.

Be careful the range/power of the key fob is pretty crazy !

Sitting inside a pub about 30 mtr. from the car and a friend comes in and tells me my boot was open.

Realised the key in my lower jacket pocket had pressed against the side of the chair.

Tested again at work and can unlock the car even behind several brick walls !

Rear view camera

Noticed when reversing with boot (trunk) lid up, that the rear vision camera does not operate. Suppose a view of the sky is not that useful while reversing!

If you approach a stationary car faster than usual, the forward collision warning goes berserk. The red car symbol starts blinking, there are two big red lights on the live cockpit (in the middle of the speedometer and tachometer respectively) and the alarm gong keeps sounding, louder than usual.

It's quite good. I set my forward collision warning on early to remind me to be less aggressive

Did you know there's a 'Connected Command' function in the BMW Connected app where you can control certain functions directly from your phone? It's even as responsive as pressing buttons on the car itself! Never noticed the button before as it appears only if use the app while the car is on (I was parked trying to see if RSU would come up haha).

Very cool but I can only see it as useful for passengers in the rear.

That's interesting. I wonder if it happens in my car too. Can't wait to check it out!

I can't tell. Is that pointing to the right? Or the side with the arrow is where to port is? So it's on the left?

I tried it in my car. It didn't work unfortunately. No connected command.

Recently I learned that if you are in adaptive cruise and need to squeeze over into the right lane, hit your blinker. The car detects the guy alongside you and slows you down so you can merge in behind him!! Might need to have DA Pro...

The battery symbol has a arrow pointing to the left, charging port is on the front left
The Gas symbol has an arrow to the right, gas filling port is on the back right

I just found it nice that the battery symbol also has the arrow. It is normal for quite some time for the gas symbol having an arrow to the side of the filling port location
left

right
