Extended range of functions for the My BMW App in November.

Digital tyre diagnosis by artificial intelligence available for the first time in automotive engineering. Additional customer benefits by new features: BMW Digital Key Plus, Remote Theft Recorder and Calendar Locations.

Munich. Since its introduction in July 2020, the My BMW App is used as a universal interface for seamless communication between the driver and the vehicle. At the same time, it provides customers a direct connection via smartphone to the BMW retailer and to the BMW brand. It can be used e.g. to plan travel routes and transfer them to the vehicle's navigation system, arrange service appointments, request information on the vehicle status or find out the latest news on the BMW brand. In addition, remote services such as locking and unlocking the doors are also available, depending on the vehicle equipment. The range of functions of the My BMW App will be extended once again in November 2021 with various new offers. These include Digital Tyre Diagnosis, which is unique in the competitive environment and which provides the driver with comprehensive information about the condition of the vehicle's tyres.


New features of the My BMW App.

The range of functions of the updated My BMW App also includes the following new features:

The Tyre Pressure Indicator provides the user with the tyre inflation pressures determined by the vehicle's tyre pressure monitoring system. As additional information, the user is given the recommended values for each axle. The user can thus check from the comfort of their own home whether the current tyre inflation pressures of the vehicle are correct.

Digital Tyre Diagnosis uses the completely newly developed tyre inflation pressure loss detection system for the first time in this form. Due to a cloud-based algorithm, any tyre inflation pressure losses can now be detected much earlier than by the vehicle's tyre pressure monitoring system. This is enabled by a diagnostic function implemented with Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the BMW back end. Any loss of pressure is indicated to the driver by the My BMW App along with recommended action. Statistical information and AI methods can also be used to make predictions about the wear of the vehicle tyres, so that a forecast can be made about the remaining service life of the tyres until the recommended minimum tread depth is reached.

Because this information is almost available in real time in the BMW back end, if the customer agrees, proactive help can be provided quickly as required, for example with a suitable replacement. Digital Tyre Diagnosis informs the customer independently on request, e.g. in the event of any technical necessity. This contact is established in a market-specific manner via the vehicle with a Teleservice message and by e-mail as well as via My BMW App. Digital Tyre Diagnosis is only available at BMW. It is at first available for the BMW iX and BMW i4 models. An expansion to a wide range of models will follow. The roll-out will take place step-by-step. The function will already be available from 11 November in Germany, the United Kingdom, Norway, the USA and Canada.

With the BMW Digital Key Plus the user has the option of unlocking, starting and also locking the vehicle again without having to take their smartphone out of their pocket. Ultra-wideband technology (UWB) is used for this purpose, which is characterised by precise localisation with maximum possible security. The BMW Digital Key Plus is provided for the Apple iPhone and can be passed on to five other users. This function will be introduced with the new BMW iX and rolled out in future models of the BMW brand.

The Remote Theft Recorder informs the customer by push notification if the vehicle’s alarm system is activated. If an alarm is triggered, the vehicle cameras record images of the entire environment and the vehicle interior. The customer can download and view the image material in the My BMW App. This is for deterring potential thieves. However, if the vehicle is still stolen or damaged, video (exterior camera) or photo (interior camera) evidence are available. To use this function, the vehicle must be equipped with the optional anti-theft alarm equipment, Parking Assistant Plus and Interior Camera.

The new Calendar Locations function enables customers to synchronise their calendar, including the list of planned journeys, with the My BMW App. Places linked to calendar entries can thus be displayed directly in the app and do not have to be searched for separately. These locations can also be transferred directly to the vehicle’s navigation system. Only calendar entries of the next 72 hours are synchronised.

Demo Mode also enables the use of the vehicle functions of the My BMW App without your own BMW vehicle. The user can choose between various BMW demo models and get an impression of the various functions of the app, e.g. for electromobility.

The updated My BMW App is available for both iOS and Android operating systems and can be downloaded free of charge by the user via Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

Anyone seeing these new features yet? MY 22 X3MC here. I don't see tyre pressure in the Check Control Messages area...

Android (Pixel 6) with app version 1.7.0 (updated on 11/5). I don't see any available updates yet.

Updated the app on my P6 Pro (android) and I am seeing the tire pressures in the check control section, however, my remote 3d view is not working now. I keep getting a connection error.

Ive got the latest IOS App version, updated yesterday and when I checked earlier this morning the tire pressure data was not available in the app. Three hours later the tire pressure data is now available in the "Check Control Messages" of the Vehicle Status. I'd just keep checking periodically, seems hit or miss for the info to show up on the app.

Just checked mine again. It only shows that engine oil is “OK”.

I have a suggestion to all replying to this thread. Please state if you are using an iPhone or an android as there may be differences in what is appearing and where to look for these updates in the app.

Victory, it is appearing. I am using version 1.7.0 (11152) on my iPhone.

If you click on "Check Status" on the home screen page of the app then click on "Check Control Messages" in the "Vehicle Status" screen the tire pressure information appears.

Yep! I now have the same (as above). So cool. What a great addition to the app… I'm a car guy that constantly checks my tires visually for damage and pressure. It will be nice to be able to just check on my phone when it crosses my mind.

I am the same; absolutely OCD about the tire pressure. This is a meh feature because it shows you the setting from the last time the car shut down. I guess you need the vehicle to be in motion for the reading to update.

Therefore a scenario where you have a slow leak will not really trigger an alarm till you start driving and the TPS updates the reading. Kind of useless if you ask me.

And is only as accurate as TPMS, mine is about 2-3 pounds off despite resets. It will appear after you update on IOS in about minute, takes 5 minutes to download everything first time..Kinda neat I guess

what is this interior camera? I have 2019 G05 X5 and it is only missing this -- does this mean this function won't be available for me?

That's a good point. I suppose my thought would be if it's anything more than say, 2-3lbs off of normal (but perhaps hasn't set off the TPS yet) at least it can give me a leg up to go check the tire for issues or whatnot.
