  • In US it is $650 and includes 4 year subscription to the Safety plan.
  • $199/year after that.
  • MyBMW Remote features, below, are contingent on active subscriotion / wireless connection
  • With 6NL you can use the MyBMW remote app to
    • do Google searches & send addresses to the Nav (via the wireless connection)
    • Remote healight flash & horn
    • Remote unlock
    • in EU, you can start a remote pre-condition cycle to ventilate a car in the summer
  • 6NR (Apps) is just a software option on top of this.
    • BMW Connected Drive App, Pandora, etc. control and UI via iDrive.
So in other words, 6NL is essential, 6NR is useless
