Hi all.

I have a 2015 Rex (solar orange) which I love. However, I'm trying to get my head around the bmw connect app. From what I can see online, BMW used to have the BMW Connected app which had a feature that let you connect your phone via USB and use some selected apps from your phone on the screen e.g. google maps.

However, BMW Connected seems to have be replaced by MyBMW and I can't find the same feature.

I've tried connecting my phone via USB to the car (which the car detects) and it automatically opens the MyBMW app but that's it. The console just states "install BMW connected app." and won't let me go any further.

Any ideas?

p.s. I'm in the UK (not sure if that changes anything app wise)
