BMW M Power Meter Review

15

Joy is measurable. You drive. The BMW M Power Meter measures.

Using integrated movement sensors, your iPhone, iPod Touch or Apple Watch can record the performance data of your driving. And because the last results are saved, you are able to compare your performance with your friends and their vehicles.

This is how it works: You need to position your device in your vehicle as described below and start the App. Select your preferred mode: continual monitoring or acceleration to a specific speed or over a specified distance. The following data can be displayed in real time:

− Acceleration (G-force)
− Speed (mph / km/h)
− Lateral acceleration (Lateral G)

Measurement begins as soon as you activate the ""Start measurement"" button.

− The vehicle must be stationary to start recording the measurements
− The measurements should be recorded on a level road without steep inclines
− The device should either be upright or laid flat facing the exact direction you are driving in to ensure the measurements are accurate
− Once the device is in place, accept the conditions screen by pressing ""Accept"" and then begin measurement by pressing ""Start measurement""
− After measurement has begun, accelerate until you have reached the target speed or until you have covered the specified distance

One last piece of important information:
Please always give first priority to your safety and to that of others on the road. Only by adhering to the speed limits and driving carefully and responsibly can one truly enjoy measurable driving pleasure to its full extent.

    So disappointed! The results are questionable (at best), the graphics are ok, but the whole app just lacks the luster of the BMW brand. This feels hacked together. It's buggy and there are a variety of spelling and odd grammatical mistakes. For instance, from the instructions: "The small 1x1 of the BMW M Power Meter."... uh what? Why does it feel like BMW doesn't take the app store seriously and feels like littering it with more crap instead of spending a little money to build high quality apps that are real show-pieces in the app store. I own a 325i, and I'm happy that BMW spends their time and energy on building cars instead of iPhone apps, because this app is a total lemon. Its only saving grace is that it was free. Bottom line, save your bandwidth and move on from this one.

    Sadly, the only thing meriting a star is the high-tech graphics. Though I didn't expect the Power Meter to be dead-on accurate, it would at least be nice if error could be reduced to plus or minus 5-10%. In my case, and even considering my iPhone was properly mounted and calibrated, the app was about 15 mph off at 30 mph! Also, if you register a profile with BMW they are supposed to supply you with an access code (key) that will allow you to change the skin graphics... well, despite my registering and re-registering at least three times, the access code provided continued to come up with a message indicating my code was invalid. I'm a huge BMW enthusiast, but this will dissappoint and frustrate users more than the company's infamous i-drive!
