    SO you're going to spend a lot of money so your cr@pple phone can tell you what you already know from looking at your dashboard?

    Ok, so they've put a few bells and whistles on it, but as its against the law to drive while holding a mobile phone - what are the benefits again...

    IMO things have gone a bit loopy with cr@pple phones, I'm sure a 'hospital' app is just around the corner, where you wire yourself up to it and it tells you your have X days, X hours, X minutes to live....

    the only thing of interest that i can see is that you can read your own fault codes therefore negating the need to have the dealers charge you the earth for the same service

    I've downloaded this on my iphone, not a bad peice of kit it does have the potential to be brilliant however you need the bluetooth tool to connect to the car which can cost upwards of £100

    Too late there's already a when will I die app... I think the idea is that you won't need to carry your laptop or handheld scanner around with you.

    If a BMW specific app came out for the I-phone then I might get one.Personally I think the I-phone is not all that and there are much better ones available but Apples marketing is very good albeit inaccurate and they have the audacity to tell you to
