Yep. Canada has no support for any of this stuff! It makes no sense for us to be a separate operation with separate apps, etc, from BMW North America.

Right now, I'm just happy I finally got my BMW Remote app working, after weeks of phone calls and run around between the US help line, my dealership, BMW Canada

You android? No issues here connecting with iPhone however it's quirky sometimes.

Yes, Android, but the issue was not so much with the app....it was just getting a login and password created. Dealing with BMW Canada, the dealer and the BMW US helpline to try to get this done was like a 3 Stooges episode.

That's funny! My app was up and running the first day I picked up my car, asked the dealer for my username and password, done.

It looks like I'm in the same situation now.. The app worked fine from the day I picked up the car, but now I changed the phone and cannot login anymore. Tried to reset the password through the app, mybmw.ca with no results Waiting for a call back from BMW customer service now.

Any tips on how your thing got resolved?

Basically you will not be able to reset the password yourself...if you're in the Canadian system its impossible for you to do so.

You'll have to get the "BMW Genius" at your dealership to do it on your behalf...he has to call or email the BMW Canada backoffice IT guy to do it, and then send you a new PW. This was ultimately what I had to do to get my credentials, after weeks of run around.

I pointed out to them that this is not a secure system, that they should allow customers to set/reset their own. They agreed, and mentioned that they are in the midst of consolidating systems with the US, and self service should be enabled in the future.

Bringing this up from the dead. Was trying to get IFTTT to log my driving but have not been able to get it to work. It almost looks like newer cars are not supported. Anyone else trying this: https://ifttt.com/applets/93704094d-...drive-your-car It's from BMW Labs.

Didn't know this was a thing! May give it a shot. Though it looks like it might be unsupported on newer cars.

This never worked for me (unfortunately) but I just got an email that says:

On August 12th, the BMW Labs service and its Applets will be removed from IFTTT because BMW is discontinuing their pilot program.

The following is a statement from BMW:
Our IFTTT integration has been part of BMW Labs since 2016 and we have gained valuable insights for further development of our in-car-services. We will be ending our IFTTT integration to focus on new pilot projects. A big thanks to IFTTT and all of our customers who participated in the pilot. For more information, please see https://labs.bmw.com/services/ifttt.html.
For alternative services, take a look at the connected car category on IFTTT.

We appreciate your understanding.
