BMW Remote App

Sorry if this is a geekish post but I've recently downloaded the BMW Remote App... it can locate the car on google maps, precondition it, lock and unlock doors plus flashes head lights on demand, but i've no option to sound horn remotely? like on the demo app?

I know I need to get a life.... but it does amuse me and i'd like the horn function to work so i can frighten the cr@p out of passers by lol.

Oh and this is my 1st post for a while my old 335D e92 was recently traded in for the 120D f20.... really miss the grunt and presence of the big D but starting like the new 1 series.

Very interesting...

Did you have to sign up and pay for a ConnectedDrive subscription to do this? It's not listed on the "available services" for BMW South Africa on the website, so I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to get it, but if there was a way around, it would be kick-ass!

Connected drive on the BMW website has the registration section in it somewhere, I think the web address for the page is listed in the app details page for the remote app.

You need to sign up at this page- you'll need your chassis no.

Let us know if it let you sign up, and what spec you got with your car

Was told by dealer that indeed 3 year included in the UK but only on cars with sat nav. However there's something else can register with BMW (members' area of some sort) and the access details for that come as part of the welcome pack which is sent a few weeks after purchase. This includes an USB stick with a link to a registration page. Though when I tried last month it wasn't working and BMW customer service said they were aware of an issue with registration and to try again, which I have yet to do.
