Pretty Cool, but in the new 2014 M5 Release video the M app shows g Forces right in the Idrive. I hope they add that feature too!!

The app doesn't display graphics/data on the nav screen on purpose - to prevent drivers from being distracted while driving. The only screen you'll see while you're driving while using this app is the recording screen (featured in the video).

Ah I called it from the comp video. I was messing around with my car and it looked like (at the time) that it would be something made available to current and latest BMW's. Plug in, go to connected drive apps, and pick one. I figured BMW can just push new apps to that screen (kind of like when they added yelp and news to iDrive)

Finally a great reason to have BMW Apps other than just Pandora, way to go BMW! Finally delivering on the promise of making BMW Apps a more useful platform over time.

I'll have to think about whether I want to use this though, because I have a feeling the reason insurance doesn't cover you if you're timing yourself (my insurance covers HPDEs otherwise) is because they know it changes the decisions you make out on the track, and not for the better. Those two reasons are why I haven't timed my laps thus far, and frankly I'm still at the point where my improvements are pretty obvious without a timer (just made Yellow with Driver's Edge), so I don't yet have a need for telemetry to compare subtle differences in lines, braking points, etc yet. I read an article on the Nurburgring where the police said that when they have to go tow a wrecked car, 80% of the time the driver had a timing device running.

Nice. Finally something useful coming out of the BMW Apps which they already require you to get with the Nav.

Yes, it will work on all iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch), as long as it's running the latest iOS version.

No they don't. Some dealers won't cover brake pads, but that's about it.

^ What the guy who quoted you above me said. They don't cover track-level wear and tear under Ultimate Service, but your warranty is fine.
