We have details and screenshots from BMW's new iPhone app, M Power Meter.
BMW has created a new, free application for the Apple iPhone. Called M Power Meter, the app provides users with sprint times, distance, and g-forces experienced.
Although the software gives you the 0-50 km/h time by default, the app can be set to provide times for sprints up to 200 km/h. M Power Meter is also able to time how long it takes your car to cover specific distances, up to 2,000 meters. Maximum forward and lateral g-force is also determined by the app.
The software uses the accelerometer built into the iPhone, and works when the phone is standing upright, or pointed towards the direction of travel. BMW's M Power Meter may be downloaded for free from the App Store on Apple's website.
