What Owners Say
"My free app on my phone does a better job. Occasionally, it has taken us the long wayto a destination. It is the worst GPS I have ever used"Jerry L., NJ (2016 BMW X1 xDrive28i 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
"Attempted to use voice activation to set local destinations. Was given directions to locations in Michigan, Puerto Rico (can't drive there from here), and other locales instead. Do not use it at all any more, opting for Waze on my smartphone"David C., GA (2016 BMW X1 xDrive28i 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
"The system is for all practical purposes unusable, to the point where we use our smartphone apps instead. It is difficult to input destination data, and, more often than not, it is misinterpreted by the system and tries to send us to locations that in no way resemble where we want to go -- e.g., the upper peninsula of Michigan, Puerto Rico, etc. This is the worst of the many weaknesses of the BMW infotainment system, which should be completely scrapped."David C., GA (2016 BMW X1 xDrive28i 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
"Phone would make an unwanted call after connecting"Anonymous, GA (2016 BMW X1 xDrive28i 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
"It doesn't understand anyone. Begins performing unwanted functions without being prompted, such as starting navigation to seemingly random destinations, or insisting we drive home when we're heading elsewhere."Anonymous, CA (2016 BMW X1 xDrive28i 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
