Attn: BMW Drivers Who Use Android
BMW has the in-car connectivity market dialed. Even despite a few changes in numbers (i.e., evolutions in consumer demand). First they, brought iPod functionality to automobiles -before their competitors. Then, they committed to iPhone integration. They even went so far as to offer an app (My BMW Remote) compatible only with, you guessed it, the iPhone. Most recently, they've launched an Android-compatible variant of My BMW Remote.
Why Android?. Well, for those of you who don't know, Android is the fastest-growing basis for smartphones and tablets in the world. By adapting their My BMW Remote App to function on the Android platform, BMW is enabling more BMW drivers worldwide the opportunity to indulge in the enhanced convenience the app lends.
What makes the all-new Android-compatible My BMW Remote a foremost app leader? Three of the same things that make BMW a foremost luxury automaker: Foresight, planning, and beating the competition to the punch. Plus, in addition to remote car start, vehicle locator, remote climate control, remote door lock and unlock, remote light flash (all found in the iPhone variant) - the all-new, Android-compatible app also offers Google Local Search. This isn't a huge surprise given the fact that Android is Google's open-source operating system. But, it's still a very BIG deal...Just think about how much easier traveling will be without having to put points of interest into your navigation tool...A LOT!
