Connected Drive

Hi guys, I got the activation link and my BMW Connected Drive account is registered and set up. In the car I now have all of the services on the iDrive and it is saying I have all the facilities like remote locking, lights, horn etc. I also have the My BMW Remote App on my iPhone and have put my details into that and it has brought up my vehicle details but it's not showing my vehicle location, no is it showing any of the remote options. Any ideas?

Also, in general what are the decent features of having the Connected Drive account set up?

I thought i read you had to within a certain distance for the location bit to work...

Can't help you with why it doesn't work, but wouldn't get too disappointed. The only use I've ever found for this is to show off the technology (and it doesn't always work with headlight flash and horn sound taking far too long)

Never forgotten where I've parked my car yet but I am getting older and when it happens I will probably forget about the app too.
