Curious if anyone heard any further updates?
Our only hope are the guys in the US to complain

Just an update that is not good news. I was speaking with a very knowledgeable Genius rep and he shared with me that BMW has quietly discontinued this service with no plans at the moment of pursuing it. Those phones that it is still working on will gradually stop working as OTA updates are pushed out.

Hey guys, apologies for dredging up an old thread but thought it might be worthwhile for some of you (and anyone googling) to hear.

I can confirm that DK 1.0 supports the Galaxy S20 (at least it supports the S20+ 5G). Just had my partnerís car set up with it today on her very last week of June 2020 built F40. It took a full uninstall of the BMW Connected app and to be with the BMW genius and their computer to get it to work. But it does now!

As a side note, her DK expiry date is 31 December 2021.

PBJ,

Can you please explain, "DK 1.0 supports the Galaxy S20"? I had understood that BMW digital key would no support Samsund phones (Android) but instead if you wanted digital key you would need a compatible Apple device.

Here is what my dealer said:

The ability for the digital key to work with Android auto will be a software update that has not been launched yet. I do realize that the online publication states that it's available but the update has not been launched as of yet.

That's DK 1.5, which applies to vehicles from built from July 2020 onwards. DK 1.0 is what I was mentioning above and still supports Samsung

The issue is that the new Samsung S20 is not working with the Digital key for BMW. The older Samsung S9 worked fine and as far as I know they are still working.

The question remains. Has anyone gotten the Samsung S20 to work with digital key? If you did what did you do?

I'm not sure this is correct. My BMW technician says the Samsung S20 is not compatible. The Samsung S9 and S10, etc. appear to be but the newer Samsung S20 is not.

I would love to be corrected but I would like for whoever got this to work to explain how since the BMW folks are saying something completely different.

As I mentioned above, it works with the S20. Nothing special, just reinstall the app and set it up at your dealer or service centre.
