Shall I come in with a controversial statement and say that I think CA is less secure because of the way the key has to constantly listen for the car - shock horror! See here for more details.

Yet another example of security being a secondary consideration or not considered at all!

Maybe I'm glad I can't get BMW Apps now. Last thing I need is a hacker from Nigeria hacking my Facebook account via my BMW Assist.

BMW Remote app still worth the risk to impress your friends by making your lights flash or your horn sound from 1/4 mile away

It really sucks that you need the SatNav for the BMW apps prog to work.
