FREEDOM IN YOUR BAGS. THE WORLD ON BOARD.

BMW ConnectedDrive Services & Apps in the BMW 4 Series Convertible.

The Services & Apps from BMW ConnectedDrive give you the freedom to do what you really want to while always keeping you connected and up to date. Communicate, navigate and visit your networks on the move - this is modern-day mobility.

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.

BLUETOOTH OFFICE WITH MESSAGE DICTATION.

Bluetooth Office allows you to use the time spent in the car more effectively. The interface for Bluetooth and USB devices allows you to conveniently organise things on the go. Emails, appointments, tasks and text messages are shown on the Control Display or read aloud over the sound system's loudspeakers. A list of all compatible mobile devices is available at www.bmw.com/bluetooth
With the Navigation System Professional (standard on the BMW 435i), a Bluetooth connection and BMW ConnectedDrive Services, picking up the phone is no longer necessary. All text can now be entered vocally. The dictation function allows spoken messages to be converted into text, which can then be sent as emails or text messages. The dictation function can also be used to compose Facebook and Twitter posts in BMW Apps (optional). The dictation function is available free of charge for the first 60 days. A fee-based contract with Nuance® is then required for ongoing use in the car.

Access to the World Wide Web.

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.

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 highways, main roads, country roads and numerous urban routes, as well as recommending efficient alternative routes.
RTTI is only available in conjunction with BMW ConnectedDrive Services and BMW Navigation System Professional.

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.

REMOTE SERVICES.

Remote Services enables various functions to be activated, deactivated and controlled from a distance. It is also possible to directly transmit addresses found using the Google™ Local Search. What's more, the car's location can be shown within a radius of 1.5 km. The car can also be locked and unlocked by calling the BMW call centre. Remote Services is only available in conjunction with BMW ConnectedDrive Services.
