DELEGATE TO RELIABLE HELPERS.

BMW ConnectedDrive Driver Assistance systems in the BMW X3.

Regardless of what you’re planning, the BMW X3 makes it easy for you. This is because the BMW X3 has innovative technologies on board that support you in a variety of ways during the journey and guarantee the highest level of comfort and safety. So that you can enjoy unadulterated driving pleasure.

DRIVING ASSIST.

The Driving Assist feature combines the camera-based Lane Departure Warning and Approach and Pedestrian Warning systems with City Brake Activation.
The Lane Departure Warning detects lane markings and alerts the driver of an unintentional lane change at speeds above approx. 70 km/h by means of vibrations in the steering wheel. The warning is not activated if the lane change is deliberate, that is, when the turn indicator has been activated.

Whereas the Approach Warning with City Brake Activation detects vehicles, the Pedestrian Warning with City Brake Activation reacts to pedestrians. When there is a risk of collision, the Approach Warning triggers a two-stage warning . First, a symbol in the instrument cluster lights up, followed by an acoustic alarm. The Pedestrian Warning triggers a single-stage warning in the event of an acute risk of collision. If the system warns of a potential collision, the brakes are simultaneously preconditioned for a faster response. In the event of an emergency, the system applies the brakes.

  • Driving Assist Plus

    The Driving Assist Plus feature (only available with Automatic Transmission Steptronic) includes not only Approach Warning and Lane Departure Warning, but also Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go function. This provides assistance when driving on highways in both critical and stable traffic situations.

    The Approach Warning responds in stages. Depending on whether a vehicle ahead brakes suddenly or a stationary object is detected, the reaction ranges from a visual signal to active braking and even a complete standstill. Should the car begin to change lanes unintentionally, the Lane Departure Warning quickly provides a warning by means of vibrations in the steering wheel.

    The Active Cruise Control maintains a constant selected speed between 30 km/h and 210 km/h or automatically adjusts to conform with the cars driving in front if the distance control is activated. The Stop&Go function even controls speed down to a standstill, accelerating again easily when the gas pedal is pressed, for example in dense moving traffic.

NAVIGATION SYSTEM PROFESSIONAL.

The Navigation System Professional features a sleek design and a superior range of services. It delivers a simple and easy-to-use navigation system that is seamlessly integrated into the BMW, with iDrive operating concept and iDrive Touch Controller included.
The system comprises the hands-free kit with USB interface and voice control and the Radio BMW Professional with DVD drive, as well as 20 GB memory for audio files. It also facilitates the use of Real Time Traffic Information (only in conjunction with ConnectedDrive Services). The built-in 8.8″ LCD colour display with split screen function (main and supplementary screen) is designed for optimal readability and overview.

  • iDrive Touch Controller

    It is operated intuitively via the iDrive Touch Controller, whose touch-sensitive surface allows the driver to easily enter destination addresses for the navigation system using their handwriting. Alternatively, the system can also be operated via direct menu control buttons, the eight functional bookmarks or voice control. Thanks to the three-dimensional map display that makes use of satellite images as a map background, with photo-realistic depictions of selected sights, navigation becomes an exciting visual experience.

CAMERA SYSTEMS.

Thanks to the optional camera systems, every parking space becomes a pleasure. This is because with Surround View and the Rear view camera you always have the area around the vehicle fully in view. In addition, Park Distance Control (PDC) at the front and rear gives optical and acoustic signals so that you can park safely and comfortably.

  • Rear View camera

    The Rear View camera allows the driver to view the area behind the car in the Control Display while manoeuvring and parking. The Rear View camera enhances visibility when reversing at speeds below 20 km/h, for example when parking. Interactive track lines indicate whether the chosen parking space is big enough for the car and provide assistance during parking by marking areas in colour on the Control Display. In conjunction with the trailer tow hitch, the Rear View camera makes the approach when hooking up a trailer easier with a practical zoom function.
     

  • Surround View

    The Surround View system provides a 360° panorama view around the vehicle with help from cameras in the exterior mirrors, a wide-angle camera in front and the Rear View camera. The system assists the driver during parking or manoeuvring in tight situations or when navigating in areas with limited visibility.

    Surround View includes the Rear View camera with Top View and Side View. Top View displays the areas on the side of the car for more convenient manoeuvring. Side View's wide-angle camera between the double kidney grilles on the front and the Rear View camera allow for a panorama view of the front and back of the vehicle. The Cross Traffic Assist assists the driver by first displaying yellow beams on the side edges of the image as well as a yellow warning triangle in the presence of crossing traffic. The Side View function is automatically deactivated when the car reaches 15 km/h.

    The driver can then choose to activate the Rear View camera, Top View or Panorama Side View. The system is activated when the car is put into reverse or at other predetermined activation points. The image is shown on the Control Display.

PARKING ASSIST.

The Park Assist makes parallel parking easier. When the system is activated and the car is driving slowly (below 35km/h), it will measure any parking spaces the car passes.
When a large enough gap has been found, the driver simply switches on the turn indicator and the Park Assist will do the steering, while the driver continues to operate the accelerator, gears and brakes.

The system also emits acoustic signals and gives instructions in the Control Display. So the driver can stay relaxed and enjoy greater safety while parking.

Not available with the optional equipment 2VX 20" light alloy wheels 310M.

*Available from 08/2014 production.

ANTI-DAZZLE HIGH-BEAM ASSIST.

With anti-dazzle High-Beam Assist, night driving is safer and more comfortable. It provides excellent visibility in the dark without dazzling other drivers.
The system detects other road-users and selectively excludes them from the high-beam headlight distribution. Beam ranges of over 400 m ensure early detection of risks and improved directional tracking. The Adaptive LED Headlights or Adaptive Headlights features are required for the anti-dazzle high-beam Assist.
