CONNECTED DRIVE SERVICES.

The BMW ConnectedDrive Services option forms the basis for a whole range of intelligent, in-car information and entertainment services.
These include BMW Online, which provides access to current, localised information such as weather and news, as well as an online search and office functions.
It is also possible to put together individualised services such as webcams, parking information and travel or hotel guides. In addition, this option includes the convenient, secure and unlimited use of smartphone apps like BMW Connected. And that's just the beginning: the BMW ConnectedDrive Services option offers so much more to make driving and travelling in a BMW even more enjoyable.

  • Preparation for Apple CarPlay®

    Thanks to Preparation for Apple CarPlay®, drivers can conveniently use a compatible iPhone® securely and wirelessly while on the go. This allows smartphone content, along with functions such as music, iMessages/text messages, telephony, Siri and selected third-party apps, to be displayed and operated in the regular manner, even via the vehicle's user interface. Preparation for Apple CarPlay can be used via touch input, the iDrive Controller or voice control, depending on the vehicle's equipment.

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.

ONLINE ENTERTAINMENT.

The perfect song for every situation, every road and every mood. Online Entertainment offers direct and unlimited access to more than 18 million music titles – all without a smartphone or other device. There is plenty of music to suit every taste. With Online Entertainment, a flat-rate account can be opened at no extra charge with any of BMW's music partners, for example Napster. This service is available in a total of six European countries: Germany, France, UK, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain.
Only available in conjunction with the optional equipment ConnectedDrive Services and the Navigation system Professional.

BMW APPS.

The Apps equipment feature is a platform enabling convenient use of selected smartphone apps in BMW vehicles. To make a variety of apps available for their customers, BMW not only develops its own apps, such as BMW Connected App and the BMW M laptimer, but also works closely with partners like Spotify, Napster, GoPro, Deezer and Audible so that those apps can also be used safely inside the car. Simply attach a compatible smartphone to the vehicle via the Snap-in adapter or a smartphone USB cable, or wirelessly. All of the app's functions can then be conveniently operated via the iDrive Controller. The selection of apps available for use in the car is constantly expanding thanks to close partnerships between BMW and a variety of different suppliers.

REAL TIME TRAFFIC INFORMATION.

Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI) puts the most up-to-date traffic information at your fingertips whenever you need it. Precise details about the time and duration of delays are relayed nearly in real time. The data is drawn from such sources as movement profiles from mobile phone networks, the GPS data of vehicle fleets, smartphone apps and police dispatches. This data is analysed so precisely that it is possible to determine the location of traffic congestion to within a few 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 efficient alternative routes.
Only available in conjunction with the optional equipment ConnectedDrive Services.

CONCIERGE SERVICES.

If you've always wanted to know what it feels like to have your very own butler, now you can: with the Concierge Services from BMW ConnectedDrive.
This convenient service connects you with a BMW Call Centre agent who acts as your personal assistant while you're on the road.
Whether you are looking for a particular restaurant, the nearest cash machine or an open chemist – the BMW call centre agent will find it and send the address details directly to your navigation system upon request. They can even make a reservation at a restaurant or book a hotel room for you. Concierge Services operates independently of your mobile phone and is available in your country of residence and abroad – around the clock, seven days a week and at no extra cost.
Only available in conjunction with the optional equipment ConnectedDrive Services.

INTELLIGENT EMERGENCY CALL.

The Intelligent Emergency Call permits fast, targeted assistance round-theclock as well as support by trained staff – in your native 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 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.

INTERNET.

In BMWs equipped with the internet option, websites can be accessed via the Control Display. The URL is entered simply and conveniently using the iDrive Controller or with the bookmark list for fast access. With the data flat rate for internet use, BMW owners can surf the internet directly from their cars nationwide (no roaming). The Control Display can be used to surf the internet while travelling up to a speed of 4 km/h. Only available in conjunction with the optional equipment ConnectedDrive Services.
