CONNECTED DRIVE SERVICES.

The equipment option 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, location-based information such as weather and news, an online search powered by Google™ as well as office functions. In the applications menu, it is also possible to assemble an individualised array of services such as webcams, fuel price information, parking information, as well as travel and hotel guides.

This also includes convenient, secure and unlimited access to selected smartphone apps. ConnectedDrive Services also provides access to the BMW ConnectedDrive Store, in which services and apps can be ordered and extended any time and anywhere to suit the user's individual requirements. The equipment option ConnectedDrive Services offers all this and more, making every trip in a BMW a real experience.

  • Apps

    The Apps equipment feature is a platform enabling convenient use of selected smartphone apps in BMW vehicles. To make a variety of apps available for their customers, BMW not only develops its own apps, such as BMW ConnectedDrive app and the BMW M Laptimer, but also works closely with partners like Spotify, Napster, GoPro, Deezer and Audible so that those apps can also be used safely inside the car.

    Simply attach a compatible smartphone to the vehicle with the snap-in adapter if one is available, or a USB cable. All of the app's functions can then be conveniently operated via the iDrive Controller. The selection of apps available for use in the car is constantly expanding thanks to close partnerships between BMW and a variety of different suppliers. For further information see www.bmw.com/apps.

INTELLIGENT EMERGENCY CALL.

The Intelligent emergency call guarantees fast, targeted assistance round-the-clock as well as support from trained staff – in the driver's native language, even when they're abroad. If an accident takes place involving the activation of an airbag or the belt tensioners (for example), the system automatically issues an emergency call. 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.

  • Bluetooth Office

    Bluetooth Office allows time spent in the car to be used more effectively. Via Bluetooth-enabled devices, daily work can be conveniently organised while on the go. The most important office functions of compatible 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 safely over the audio speakers. A list of all compatible mobile devices is available at www.bmw.com/bluetooth.

  • BMW Online Office

    With BMW Online Office, time spent in the car can be used more efficiently:. The feature makes it possible to receive, read and reply to email when on the road. Alongside comprehensive functions for editing and sending emails from the Control Display, emails can also be read out via the text-to-speech function, and dictated using voice recognition.

    A mailbox using an existing email address can be set up in just a few steps from any private PC using the “My BMW ConnectedDrive” customer portal. Selected email providers can also be set up as BMW Online Office inboxes in the vehicle. If there are several e-mail accounts with the same provider, they will be clearly shown in the menu. Once set up, all emails will be sent to the vehicle without delay or deviation.

  • Message dictation

    Message dictation let's you take your office with you. With the office function you can use the e-mail and texting function of your Bluetooth smartphone inside the car.

    Message dictation converts spoken messages into text which you can then send by e-mail or text message using a smartphone connected via Bluetooth. With the Navigation System Professional, a Bluetooth connection and ConnectedDrive Services, you’ll no longer need to pick up your phone. For information on the Bluetooth compatibility of your smartphone and other mobile end devices, see www.bmw.com/bluetooth.

    Message dictation is available free of charge for the first 60 days. A contract with Nuance® is necessary for ongoing use.

REAL TIME TRAFFIC INFORMATION.

Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI) provides the most up-to-date traffic information at all times. Precise details about the location and duration of delays are transmitted in order to keep the driver informed, practically in real time, about the current traffic situation on highways, country roads and on many routes within the city. Intelligent alternative route suggestions help the driver reach their destination as quickly and efficiently as possible. The data are 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 depicted in green, yellow, orange and red.
