BMW ConnectedDrive Services & Apps in the BMW M6 Convertible.

Always stay one step ahead with BMW ConnectedDrive options. Services & Apps allow you to keep the BMW M6 Convertible well-connected in every way. You have access to information, entertainment and services directly inside the car. There's also the racing functions of the BMW M Laptimer App available to you.

BMW CONNECTEDDRIVE 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.

BMW M LAPTIMER APP.

With the BMW M laptimer app, driving data from the racetrack can be accurately recorded, bend by bend, and then analysed with the aim of improving driving performance. The app collects precise data from the BMW sensors and shows selected values in the Control Display. The system is operated via the iDrive Controller.

 

While it is recording, the BMW M laptimer app shows the GPS position, speed, forward acceleration, lateral acceleration (G-force), lap times and acceleration up to a certain speed (e.g. from 0 to 100 km/h). Depending on the vehicle equipment and model year, factors measured may also include the accelerator position, steering angle, deceleration, rpms and gear, as well as fuel consumption.

 

The recorded data can be posted as a snapshot to social networks, or saved and sent via email.

CONCIERGE SERVICES.

For anyone who has ever wanted to know what it is like to have their own personal butler, Concierge Services from BMW ConnectedDrive is your chance.

 

At the push of a button the driver is connected with a BMW Call Centre agent who acts as their "personal assistant" on the road.

 

From a particular restaurant to the nearest ATM or a pharmacy – the BMW Call Centre agent is there to help and can even send information directly to the navigation system. Concierge Services operate independently of the driver's mobile phone and are available, around-the-clock, seven days a week and at no extra cost.

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.

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.

 

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.
