Conceived for the i3 and i8, it provides users with some status information on your ride: vehicle range, estimated charge time remaining, location of nearby charging stations, if the doors are locked, window, door and trunk position.

Users can also check on vehicle status such as door lock, window, door, and trunk position.

It’s not all read-only though, because as the name suggests, i Remote can operate the car’s climate control system to preheat or cool to vehicle prior to arrival. It can lock the doors, flash the lights, honk the horn, and even locate the car for you if you lose your way as well. Best of all, it’s free...
