If an airbag is deployed, Intelligent Emergency Call automatically contacts the BMW Call Centre via an accident-proof telephone unit permanently installed in your vehicle – independently of your own mobile phone, both at home and abroad. Specially trained personnel will then establish contact with you, inform the emergency services and give you support by telephone – in your mother tongue if possible. The same connection simultaneously transfers the precise position of the vehicle to the nearest metre together with other data relevant for the rescue services, such as risk of injury, number of passengers, model and colour of the vehicle. This enables rescue services to prepare the required care for those involved in the accident promptly. The emergency call can also be triggered manually, such as if you need to summon assistance for other road users.
