CONNECTED DRIVE SERVICES.

The equipment option ConnectedDrive Services forms the basis for BMW ConnectedDrive functions, which provide the driver with a wide range of information, entertainment and service features while on the road.

These include BMW Online, which provides access to current, location-based information such as weather and news, an online search powered by GoogleTM as well as office functions. In addition, an individual range of services such as fuel price information, parking information, as well as travel and hotel guides may be set up via the applications menu. This also includes convenient, secure and unlimited access to selected smartphone apps. ConnectedDrive Services also provides access to the BMW ConnectedDrive Store, in which services such as Real Time Traffic Information, Remote Services, Online Entertainment and Concierge Services can easily be ordered and extended to suit the user's individual requirements. The equipment option ConnectedDrive Services offers all this and more, making every trip in a BMW a real experience.

BMW CONNECTED.

BMW Connected is a personal mobility assistant which facilitates everyday mobility and aids drivers in reaching their destinations relaxed and on time. All relevant services are also remotely available at all times on iPhone und Apple Watch via the app.


Destinations that have been found in the web or via other application such as Yelp, Apple Maps, Google Maps can be easily and conveniently imported into BMW Connected and seamlessly transferred to the vehicles navigation system with just a single click. Meetings, including addresses and intended arrival times, saved in the iPhone calendar are automatically imported into the BMW Connected mobility agenda. Based on current location and traffic conditions, BMW Connect calculates the planned arrival time, alerts users ahead of time and guides them on foot from the parked car to their final destination. If a delay is unavoidable due to unforeseeable traffic obstacles or if no parking space is available in the immediate vicinity of the final destination, users can send a text message via BMW connected to inform the waiting party of the estimated time of arrival, without having to physically use their phone. In addition, BMW Connected learns to recognize frequent destinations and automatically adds them to the mobility agenda.


The BMW Connected App can be downloaded from the Apple App Store.

CONCIERGE SERVICES.

Whether you're looking for a hotel room or a restaurant reservation - the BMW call centre agents are ready to help you 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

BMW EMERGENCY CALL

The Intelligent Emergency Call permits fast, targeted assistance round-the-clock as well as support by trained staff – in your language even if you are abroad. If a serious accident takes place involving activation of an airbag or the belt tensioners, an Intelligent Emergency Call is automatically issued. Relevant details such as the exact position of the car, the severity of the accident and the possible risk of injury to occupants are transmitted to the BMW call centre via the car’s built-in SIM card, i.e. independently of a private mobile phone. The BMW call centre will inform the nearest rescue coordination centre and provide assistance the over the phone until the rescue services arrive. The emergency call can also be triggered manually in case other road users require help, for example.

REMOTE SERVICES.

REMOTE SERVICES.

With the Remote Services of the BMW Connected App (available in the Apple App Store), various vehicle-related functions, such as locking and unlocking the car, can be operated remotely.


Just as the BMW ConnectedDrive customer portal, the app also offers the opportunity to access vehicle information such as range or the status of the windows and doors. That way the driver is always fully informed about the status of the vehicle, even from a distance, and also has all information conveniently gathered together at one glance.


This information package is rounded out with the display of the vehicle’s current location. To use this feature, customers simply need to activate Remote Services once in the BMW ConnectedDrive customer portal at www.bmw-connecteddrive.com.

REAL TIME TRAFFIC INFORMATION.

Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI) provides you with the most up-to-date traffic information at all times. Precise details of the time and duration of holdups are relayed virtually in real time. The data is drawn from such sources as movement profiles from the mobile phone network, the GPS data of vehicle fleets, smartphone apps and police reports. This data is analysed so precisely that it is possible to localise traffic congestion to the nearest 500 metres. This enables RTTI to provide information in real time on the current traffic situation on motorways, main roads, country roads and numerous urban routes, as well as recommending sound alternative routes.
Only available in conjunction with the optional equipment ConnectedDrive Services.
