    242B2708-D3BF-4DE9-937B-24CE2E99237E.png Perhaps, everyone knew this but me, but a quick search in the App Store resulting in me finding the “Supra Connect” app.

    Little bit of salt in the would, when you initially sign-up, there are about four BMW disclosures to accept. Lol

    Looks like we will be able to lock/unlock, flash lights, honk the horn, see the destination of and send directions to the Supra.

    There is a link for “video instructions” to the items that are available, however, those wouldn’t load on my phone....maybe they will work on a PC or aren’t live yet.

    Hope this is new info to someone else besides me.

    Strange thing, when I initially tried to sign-up, it said that my email was already registered...I have my 4Runner registered on Toyota.com, I am guessing it pulled my username/email from there...?

    This looks exactly like the bmw connect. I actually didn’t even need to register. It used my bmw connect and had all my navigation details I used in my M4.

    Yes, I agree, it definitely doesn’t have much of a Toyota or even a “partnership” feel. Not that it bothers me, but gave me a chuckle.

    Are there other features that BMW connect offers? On the BMW app aren’t you able to check your fuel level? Anything else you know of?

    It allows me to view mileage left on the tank. Load different bmw “connect” apps to my idrive. Spotify, GoPro, bmw lap timer etc.

    I think the “Toyota Supra Connect” is only available in selected countries. :(

    I think there’s a catch here...the subscription. You’ll have to pay monthly or yearly fees in order to use this; not for free.

    So they only do apple, and ignore the majority who are on Android.

    This car keeps missing the mark at every turn!

    That's just BMW for you, they really only support Apple. Definitely sucks for us Android guys.

    wondering if this means one could use the BMW Connect app and add the Supra to it?

    I hope whatever it says in Japanese, it translates to “remote start.”

    Looks like the app is completely disabled. I booted it up today and it instantly closed the app. A quick delete and install of the app, yielded similar results.

    Either Toyota locked it out or it is incompatible with the latest iPhone update....
