    I know there was a Beta of the smartphone app released to a select few owners, and was wondering if anyone had heard anything about an official release. I get my car on Friday, and was hoping it would be ready before then. I plan on asking my DES when I see him.

    I heard it's coming soon but I wonder if:

    a) There will need to a roll-out? (And the accompanying app anxiety for those who don't have it yet! :wink:)

    b) It will only become available with the WiFi update that was mentioned for January-ish?

    There is a option on my display to turn on and off mobile app, but I have not tried it yet. I guess it's just sitting there: ready. Website says coming in summer of 2012. I wonder if that is the Mayan calendar.

    It seems like they need to wait until the rollout of v4.0 is complete as that is a necessary component to actually using the App with your car. Right?

    The old software had the same option. Reports are that the app is still in beta but very close to roll-out.

    Is there any news on which features we can actually expect from these apps?
