BMW ConnectedDrive Services & Apps in the BMW M4 Convertible.

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

CONNECTEDDRIVE SERVICES.

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, localized information such as weather, news, an online search powered by Google™ and also office functions. In the "Applications" menu, it is also possible to assemble an individualised array of services such as webcams, parking information, and travel and hotel guides.

This also includes comfortable, secure and unlimited access to selected smartphone apps. The equipment option ConnectedDrive Services also enables access to the BMW ConnectedDrive Store, in which services and apps can be assembled at any time and anywhere according to individual requirements. ConnectedDrive Services offers many more similar options, making every trip in a BMW a real driving experience.

BMW M LAPTIMER APP.

With the BMW M Laptimer app, driving data from the racecourse can be precisely recorded and an analysis can be carried out for improving driving-performance.

The recorded information, which falls into categories such as accelerator pedal, steering angle, G-force and best lap time, can be posted as snapshots to Facebook or Twitter, or sent by email.

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.

REAL TIME TRAFFIC INFORMATION.

Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI) provides the most up-to-date traffic information at all times. Precise details of the time and duration of hold-ups are relayed virtually in real time.

The data is drawn from such sources as movement profiles from the mobile phone network, the GPS data of vehicle fleets, smartphone apps and police reports. This data is analysed so precisely that it is possible to localise traffic congestion up to 100 meters. This enables RTTI to provide information almost instantly on the current traffic situation on highways, main roads, country roads and numerous urban routes, and to recommend sound alternative routes.

The visualization of the traffic information is optimized thanks to a colour display of the roads in green, yellow, orange and red.

INTELLIGENT EMERGENCY CALL.

Intelligent emergency call permits fast, targeted assistance round-the-clock as well as support by trained staff.

If a serious accident takes place involving activation of an air bag 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 Center via the car’s built-in SIM card, i.e. independently of a private mobile phone.

The BMW Call Center will inform the nearest rescue coordination center and provide assistance over the phone until the rescue services arrive. The emergency call can also be triggered manually in case others on the road require help, for example.

BLUETOOTH OFFICE.

Bluetooth Office allows you to use time spent in the car more effectively. Via Bluetooth-enabled devices, daily work can be conveniently organised while on the go.

The most important office functions of specified smartphones, such as e-mails, appointments, tasks or text messages, are shown on the Control Display and can also be read aloud on demand, conveniently and securely, over the audio speakers. A list of all compatible mobile devices is available at www.bmw.co.za/bluetooth

INTERNET.

The Internet option provides web access on the car's high-resolution Control Display. This means the driver can use the internet just like at home on the computer. The URL is entered simply and conveniently using the iDrive Controller or using the bookmark list for fast access.
With the data flat rate for internet use, users can surf the internet directly from the car nationwide (no roaming). The Control Display can be used for surfing the web while travelling at a speed of up to 4 km/h. With the rear entertainment system Professional, passengers in the rear can also surf the internet using flat screens integrated into the front seats.
