CONNECTED DRIVE SERVICES PROFESSIONAL.

The equipment option ConnectedDrive Services Professional 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. These include BMW Online, which gives you access to current, localized information such as weather, news, and online search. It is also possible to access popular services such as Yelp, Google Street View and Panoramio. This option also includes secure and unlimited access to smartphone apps such as BMW Connected. You will find lots of other useful apps and more are added every day.

  • 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, 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.

BMW ASSIST EMERGENCY CALL.

BMW ASSIST EMERGENCY CALL.

BMW Assist Emergency Call permits fast, targeted assistance round-the-clock, supported by trained staff. If a serious accident takes place involving activation of an air bag or the belt tensioners, a BMW Assist 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. independently of a private mobile phone. The BMW Call Centre will inform the nearest rescue coordination centre and provide assistance over the phone until rescue services arrive. The emergency call can also be triggered manually in case others on the road require help.
