    Just had an email saying mine is about to expire (had the car from new in May 2018). Weird as on my previous one (Oct 2015 which I p/x'd) I never had to renew so I'm assuming it used to be 3 years in line with warranty?

    Which one are people renewing for as there seem to be multiple options now?

    It is 3 years, but there are so many extras now, its probably one of those that has expired.

    I didn't renew mine after a year and I haven't noticed that I am missing anything.

    I can't say I've noticed all of those benefits on the Connected App on my phone (unless there was another one that I wasn't aware of). I can still send routes to my car, even though Connected+ has expired.

    The only thing I really care about is traffic info and sending routes to your phone.

    Which is my point exactly. I had Connected+ but didn't even know what it did or the benefits of it. So it being out of subscription doesn't make a difference to me.

    +1 on the RTTI and sending routes to the car from my phone. I use the latter feature a lot.

    Jon if you’re keeping the M4 past 3 years you only need to renew Nav updates (£79) and live traffic info (£49).

    Thanks John. Yeah I never keep mine 3 years which is surprised the mail came through given the car is only 16 months old. All seems fine so confident its an email error.

    And all these services start from the build date. I questioned why all of mine didn't start when I bought the car and that was BMW's response.

    I have the BMW Connected App on my phone. Is the Connected+ an update? Can’t seem to see it in the App Store.
