Occasionally, dangerous situations or accidents occur on the road. Thanks to BMW Drive Recorder you can see exactly what happened around your vehicle, together with the date, the precise time, the speed you were travelling and the GPS position.

If your BMW detects that an accident is taking place, it will automatically store a video clip via the cameras located to the front, rear and sided of your vehicle. To obtain a complete picture of the incident, your BMW Drive Recorder records the preceding seconds before the vehicle comes to a standstill, so that you don’t miss a thing.

But you can also capture the highlights of your journey with the BMW Drive Recorder. At the press of a button, you can record and store events that take place on the road. And, it is just as easy to watch, export or delete a video as it is to film.

After purchase in the ConnectedDrive Store, the function is automatically loaded in your vehicle and available shortly after.

Once it has been enabled, you will find a detailed description of the function in your vehicle’s integrated operating manual.
