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

Freedom means always being able to choose your own path in life. To do exactly what you feel like doing. The intelligent services from BMW ConnectedDrive were developed for this purpose. It's always there when you need them, know your musical taste and find the quickest route to your destination. ConnectedDrive Services make the BMW 2 Series Coupé the perfect accomplice, allowing you to enjoy limitless freedom.

CONNECTED DRIVE SERVICES.

ConnectedDrive provides you with a wide range of information, entertainment and service features on the road. These include BMW Online, which gives you access to current, localised information such as weather, news, online search and also office functions. It is also possible to put together individualised services such as webcams, parking information and travel or hotel guides. This option also includes secure and unlimited access to smartphone apps such as BMW Connected.

BMW APPS.

BMW Apps is a platform that enables the convenient use of selected smartphone apps in the car. In order to make a variety of apps available for their vehicles, BMW not only develops its own apps, but works with partners like Napster, Deezer and Audible so that those apps can also be used safely in the car. To access the platform, the driver only needs to connect his or her smartphone to the vehicle using the snap-in adapter or a smartphone USB cable. All 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. This option is only available in conjunction with BMW ConnectedDrive Services. Further information is available at www.bmw.com/apps.

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.

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.

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.

INTERNET.

BMW vehicles are equipped with the internet option and 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. BMW ConnectedDrive Services is required in order to use this function.
