Mastering Your BMW's Technology: How to Delete Recorded Paths in Parking Assistant Pro and Navigate Android Compatibility with the MyBMW App
How to Delete Recorded Paths in Parking Assistant Pro
If you've ever used the parking assistant pro feature on your BMW, you may have found yourself recording multiple paths to see which one works best. However, once you've determined the ideal path, those other recorded paths can get in the way and clutter up your screen. So how do you delete them?
One user posed this question on a forum and received a simple answer - there is an option listed as "delete" within the parking app itself. This can be accessed through the car dash display under the parking icon. Once you select the delete option, you should be able to choose which recorded paths you want to remove.
It's important to note that while this solution worked for one user, it may not work for everyone. It's always a good idea to consult your vehicle's manual or contact customer support if you're having trouble with any features.
Android Users and Digital Key Functionality
Another user on the same forum had a different question related to BMW technology - specifically, why they were unable to use the MyBMW app for remote parking with their Android phone.
The answer lies in the fact that the MyBMW app requires a UWB (Ultra Wideband) chip, which newer models of Samsung and Google phones have. However, even with this chip, the app still doesn't work with Android devices. The reason for this isn't due to any prejudice against Android by BMW; rather, it has more to do with their programming expertise with Apple products.
While some users have reported success using digital key functionality on their Galaxy S22+ or S22 Ultra, others have noted that it doesn't function quite like a traditional key fob or iPhone digital key. For example, users must touch the handle with their phone to unlock/lock the car and keep it on a wireless charger to drive. With an iPhone and Digital Key Plus, doors lock/unlock automatically (if set up), and users can keep their phone in their pocket or purse just like a key fob.
In conclusion, while BMW technology continues to evolve and offer exciting new features such as parking assistant pro and digital keys, it's essential to stay informed about how these features work and what limitations they may have depending on your device. By consulting resources such as manuals or customer support and staying engaged with online communities of fellow BMW enthusiasts, you can make sure you're getting the most out of your vehicle's capabilities.
