LEAD THE WAY. AND LET THE WORLD FOLLOW.

BMW ConnectedDrive Services & Apps in the BMW 2 Series Convertible.

Communication, information and entertainment. Experience mobility in a completely new way with the Services & Apps from BMW ConnectedDrive.

CONNECTED DRIVE SERVICES.

The ConnectedDrive Services equipment option forms the basis for the 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, localised information such as weather, news, an online search powered by GoogleTM and also 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.

Convenient, secure and unlimited access to selected smartphone apps is also included. ConnectedDrive Services also provides access to the BMW ConnectedDrive Store, in which services and apps can be ordered and extended anytime 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.

CONCIERGE SERVICES.

Concierge Services from BMW ConnectedDrive gives you a taste of what it's like to have your own personal butler. At the touch of a button the driver is connected with the BMW Call Centre agents who are available as ''personal assistants'' while you're on the road.

Whether you're looking for a particular restaurant, the nearest ATM or an emergency pharmacy; a BMW Call Centre agent is there to help and can send address details directly to the navigation system, on demand.

The Concierge Services operate independently of the driver's mobile phone and are available at home and abroad round-the-clock, seven days a week at no extra cost. Concierge Services are only available in conjunction with ConnectedDrive Services.

INTERNET.

The Internet option provides access to the web on the car's high-resolution Control Display. So the driver can use the internet just like on their computer at home.

URLs can be entered easily and conveniently using the iDrive Controller, or selected from the bookmark list for fast access. With the data flat rate for internet use, users can surf the web directly from the car nationwide (no roaming). The Control Display can be used to access the internet while travelling at a speed of up to 4 km/h. With rear-seat entertainment Professional, passengers in the rear can also use the internet via flat screens integrated into the front seats.

REAL TIME TRAFFIC INFORMATION.

Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI) provides the most up-to-date traffic information at all times.

Precise details about the time and duration of hold-ups are relayed to provide almost instantaneous traffic information about highways, country roads and main roads, as well as numerous city routes. Intelligent alternative route suggestions help the driver reach their destination as efficiently as possible. The data is 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 displayed in green, yellow, orange and red.

REMOTE SERVICES.

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

It is also possible to directly transmit selected destinations found using the Google™ search engine. In addition, the car's location can be shown within a radius of 1.5 km. To use this feature, customers simply need to activate Remote Services once in the ''My BMW ConnectedDrive'' customer portal at www.bmw-connecteddrive.co.za

INTELLIGENT EMERGENCY CALL.

The intelligent emergency call guarantees fast, targeted assistance round-the-clock as well as support from trained staff, even when they're abroad.

If an accident takes place involving the 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. 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, for example.
