Re: "Without naming the machine's maker"
I just got rid of a 2014 5 series on Friday. I now cannot log in to the app on my phone.
Also, even if I managed to log in, the app checks the car's location. If it's more than 1.5km away from the phone, it refuses to provide any info 'for privacy reasons'.
The only hidden nugget on that car is Faithless's The Dance on the hard drive.
