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 the applications menu, it is also possible to assemble an individualised array of services such as webcams, fuel price information,
parking information, as well as travel and hotel guides. 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 and apps can be ordered and extended any time and anywhere 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.

ConnectedDrive Services.

  • BMW ConnectedDrive Store

    Services and apps to suit every need can be purchased individually from the BMW ConnectedDrive Store at any time and place. These services can be flexibly selected and ordered even after the purchase of the BMW. This allows customers to choose from all the available BMW ConnectedDrive services and apps directly from the car at all times based on their individual needs.
    The services and apps that can be ordered in the BMW ConnectedDrive Store have been specially developed to suit the needs and demands of BMW drivers. The duration of individual services can also be selected. This allows customers to order services for a specified period of time, for example during their holiday.
    The BMW ConnectedDrive Store can be accessed on the go from inside the BMW, or via the My BMW ConnectedDrive online customer portal. The newly ordered services and apps are then accessible in the car shortly after being chosen and purchased. The BMW ConnectedDrive Store provides updated information on the selection of available services and apps at all times.

  • 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 app, 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 with the snap-in adapter if one is available, or a USB cable. Audio is played over the vehicle's sound system. 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.

INTELLIGENT EMERGENCY CALL.

INTELLIGENT EMERGENCY CALL.

The Intelligent Emergency Call guarantees fast, targeted assistance round-the-clock as well as support from trained staff – in the driver's native language, even when they're abroad. If an accident takes place involving the activation of an airbag or the belt tensioners (for example), the system automatically issues an emergency call. 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. independent 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.

  • BMW Online Office

    With BMW Online Office, time spent in the car can be used more efficiently: the feature makes it possible to receive, read and reply to email when on the road. Alongside comprehensive functions for editing and sending emails from the Control Display, emails can also be read out via the text-to-speech function, and dictated using voice recognition.
    A mailbox using an existing email address can be set up in just a few steps from any private PC using the “My BMW ConnectedDrive” customer portal. Selected email providers can also be set up as BMW Online Office inboxes in the vehicle. If there are several e-mail accounts with the same provider, they will be clearly shown in the menu. Once set up, all emails will be sent to the vehicle without delay or deviation.

  • Message dictation

    With the Navigation System Professional, a Bluetooth connection and BMW ConnectedDrive Services, picking up the phone is no longer necessary. All text can now be entered vocally.
    The message dictation allows spoken messages to be converted into text, which can then be sent as emails or text messages. The message dictation can also be used to compose Facebook and Twitter posts with BMW apps. The message dictation is available free of charge for the first 60 days, after which a fee-based contract with Nuance® is required.
    More information on Bluetooth compatibility with smartphones and other mobile devices is available at:

REAL TIME TRAFFIC INFORMATION.

Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI) provides the most up-to-date traffic information at all times. Precise details about the location and duration of delays are transmitted in order to keep the driver informed, practically in real time, about the current traffic situation on motorways, country roads and on many routes within the city. Intelligent alternative route suggestions help the driver reach their destination as quickly and efficiently as possible. The data are drawn from such sources as anonymous movement profiles from the GPS data of vehicle fleets, smartphone apps and police reports, and also takes into account established traffic patterns such as peak commute times.
The traffic information is clearly presented, with the roads depicted in green, yellow, orange and red.

CONCIERGE SERVICE.

For anyone who has ever wanted to know what it is like to have their own personal butler, here is the chance: with the Concierge Service from BMW ConnectedDrive. At the push of a button the driver is connected with a BMW Call Centre agent who acts as their "personal assistant" on the road.
Whether a particular restaurant, the nearest cash dispenser or an emergency pharmacy – the BMW Call Centre agent is there to help and can even send information directly to the navigation system. The Concierge Service operates independently of the driver's mobile phone and is available in their home country and abroad, around-the-clock, seven days a week and at no extra cost.
