Imagine how stupid that will be.
Anytime I stop home for a little thing, my garage will open. Ora stay open because I didn’t leave, or the car is not in the garage? What about when I preffer to leave it outside so I put the summer toy in there over the winter or viceversa?
Yeah, you can programe it and turn it on or off, right? Is that hard to press a button?

This kind of ideas screw things like the analog temperature / volume control.
How lazy a human can be?

USA is supposed to be getting the app soon. So this likely aligns with it.

Why is the update needed since the app has been out a year in select markets before this update was released? No idea.

Your service adviser is wrong, shame on him - imho this should be basic knowledge for a sales advisor. There has never been a G05/G06/G07 with ID6, as they came with ID7 from the beginning!
If i were you, I would tell him this!

Furthermore I think it is cool that the frequency of the OTA updates seems to be increasing. I don't know, but i feel like no matter what is beeing announced by BMW, the first instinctive reaction here, has just to be negative.
I mean what do you expect? Do you need a fart app so badly? Or twitch?() Maybe some here really need to just change the brand - try to get happy with Merc, Audi, Tesla, or what ever, might give you more peace of mind. And thats not ment in a polemical way - these are interesting and maybe more than adequate alternatives. I just can't see the point sticking with a brand wich doesn't satisfy you the way it should.

Sorry for the grumbling, but I feel like I am loosing the interest in reading through the forums, because you already know that half of the comments are all about complaining about everything - that should not be the purpose of a bimmer forum...is the BMW community really dying?

Regarding the Update:
- Login by MyBMW App:
This is nice. I have a pretty long password and change my passwords also pretty often. Typing in the password over the Screen is pretty annoying.

- Alexa integration:
Also nice, as I have several devices at home controlled with Alexa. I assume that I will be able to controle everything out from the car

- M Laptimer:
Very cool, I am missing it in my M340i, while I have (the old Version?) it in the M4C. Verry curious to see how it will look like.

- Activce Navigation:
Looking forward to see if it also improves the issue that the Distance and lane change assistant is operating far to defensive currently.

FWIW, I did a PCD today with an X7, and it does have this new software version installed. In the USA market, does work with the BMW Connected app. Product expert does think the My BMW app is coming to USA soon.

I have a hard time getting excited about OTA updates. Very useful for fixing screwups but when you look at the actual content, whether fart sounds, lap timers, or Alexa, seems like the content is really weak. Trying to remember the last OTA update for my phone that was I was really excited to get and can't. Content/Apps I could add myself makes sense but I don't think this is what the goal is?

You're obviously from an older generation and don't want to deal with automation. That's cool.

Yup, I am already doing that with Home Assistant. It's always good to see native implementations though.

Maybe you are right...?
Being logic must be a thing of the past...

Yeah, no automation for me baby. I like the MT, analog things, touch and feel. I presume that you are waiting for self driving cars? Why on this forum then?
No, actually I am not old. Either way, young and old are terms for weak people.

No more technical common sense and logic in the young generation? Lazy much?
ďThatís cool.Ē
