Did you take it back to the dealer? That functionality should exist, doesn't, so they should remedy the situation even if it requires replacing the computer.

The problem is that the function seems a bit sketchy. A few owners claim to have it, but you can't get a definitive picture. The dealer is aware and is communicating with BMW and as soon as I have some concrete evidence, I'll push harder.
If you look at this thread, there are few owners confirming they have the function.

So here is the definitive answer from BMW:

The 'My Motorcycle' application is only made available on bikes with the factory audio/radio option.

It's only a software issue and they are working on an update patch for all compatible RTs and could be available mid 2018.

I would suggest to anyone interested that they badger their dealer and it might speed the process up.

This app works great on the 2018 r1200RT with the Nav6.
Lots of information.

Hi Bernie

I presume your bike has the audio/radio option fitted?
