The equipment includes a built-in BMW WiFi hotspot using the LTE standard, which allows for a paid internet connection. Passengers can then go online with all suitable devices, work on emails, stream music and videos, and much more. The hotspot ensures that there are no obstacles to enjoying a fascinating mobile internet experience with the maximum LTE standard while on the move.
This function is compatible with a huge array of devices, such as BMW Touch Command, laptops, tablets and mobile phones from various manufacturers. Up to ten devices can be connected to the BMW WiFi hotspot at the same time.
The vehicle is connected via the built-in SIM card with a fee-based hotspot plan HotSpot Drive from Deutsche Telekom AG. If no LTE network is available, the system automatically switches to other available standards. Since the service is connected to the external aerial, exposure to radiation in the interior of the car is very low.
