Re: Openpilot anyone?

I have now been operating the TJA (Traffic jam Assitant) function on my i3 for almost 2 weeks. To clarify all I have at this point is the function enabled at the factory for the European market. Meaning self-driving ONLY work's on an Expressway, (.. what we call a Freeway) and only in those instanc...

Anyone know when 2020 spec and ordering will open in the US? I thought BMW would be building 2020 models by now.

Re: AUTOBRAKE !! (yikes!)

I noticed this last week that the following car icon was lighting up a bit more than usual and not very close to the car in front of me, maybe it's an algorithm that takes into account weather (but you're in a warm climate, right?), i'm usually riding the gas very lightly so i can modulate any sudde...

Re: BMW Connect app - shipping across country and tracking

Where in VA will you be driving the i3? I haven't seen too many driving around Northern VA. I can count them on one hand (maybe 2 hands ). I’m in Reston VA. I’ve seen a few of them here and there. But you’re right - not that many, it appears that the west coast has most of them. Nice, I'm driving m...

Re: BMW Connect app - shipping across country and tracking

Looks like he’s finally out of Cali and heading East. GPS shows him on I-40 east of Albuquerque, NM. I think the app only updates when the car is not in motion - as every update was at a gas station/rest area. 1,765 more miles to go so probably 3 more days. Wish this car had 3D view capability! -Ro...

Re: BMW Connect app - shipping across country and tracking

Maybe it's a bad cellular signal wherever the car is at?

Re: ConnectedDrive

Mine is hit and miss on the climatize function. Worked great for most of the summer and now hasn't worked reliably for the last couple of months. It's not related to the location of the car since it is failing in the exact same places that it worked before. And it's not an AT&T coverage issue eithe...

Re: Auto climate button & AC on

My wife's 5 series has the blue/red on the vents and works exactly as he stated. However, my 2014 i3 does not have blue/red. The vent controls simply turn the vents on/off. Maybe it was an option on a higher trim level on the i3. Mine is a Giga. Maybe on the Tera? I have an 2018 tera interior and i...

Re: Auto climate button & AC on

When in auto, the fan function is more of an aggressiveness adjustment. Setting the mode to one of the ECO ones will affect how aggressively the car tries to maintain. The car is smart enough to notice the windows fogging up, and even if the a/c is off, can turn it back on to help dry the air. BMW ...
