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.

BLUETOOTH OFFICE.

Bluetooth Office allows you to use the time spent in the car more effectively. The connection of Bluetooth and USB devices means you can conveniently organise your day-to-day life when out and about. E-mails, dates, tasks and text messages are shown on the Control Display or read aloud over the audio speakers.
You will find a list of all compatible mobile phones and smartphones at www.bmw.co.za/bluetooth.

CONCIERGE SERVICES.

Have you always wanted to know what it feels like to have your own personal butler? This is your opportunity. Enjoy a very special kind of service with BMW ConnectedDrive Concierge Services.
At the touch of a button you are put through to our BMW Call Centre agents who are available to you as "personal assistants" while you are on the road. Whether you are looking for a particular restaurant, the ATM or an emergency pharmacy − the BMW Call Centre agent is there to help and can send address details directly to your navigation system if you wish. The agent can even place a reservation at a restaurant or book a hotel room for you.
Concierge Services operate independently of your mobile phone and are available to you at home and abroad round the clock, seven days a week at no extra cost. ConnectedDrive Services is required in order to use this function.

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

REAL TIME TRAFFIC INFORMATION.

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.
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.
