DRIVING ASSISTANT PLUS.

Driving Assistant Plus not only includes the Driving Assistant systems, Lane Departure Warning, and approach control and person warning with light city braking function, but also the active cruise control with Stop&Go function for additional comfort. Active Cruise Control maintains a speed determined by the driver, as well as the distance to the car ahead. In slow-moving traffic or traffic jams, the vehicle takes over accelerating and braking, and the selected distance to the car ahead is maintained down to a stop. If a vehicle ahead brakes heavily, the BMW responds immediately when the Approach Warning is activated. The system operates in steps. A warning icon is first displayed, then the icon begins flashing and an acoustic warning is emitted, and finally the car brakes firmly.

BMW HEAD-UP DISPLAY.

The full-colour BMW Head-Up Display projects relevant driving information directly into your line of sight, allowing you to fully concentrate on driving. It displays information from the navigation system, notifications and Check Control messages. You can also have infotainment information displayed such as radio station, track titles, phone book entries and call lists. The icons projected onto your windshield are displayed in a particularly high resolution and full colour, with traffic symbols reproduced realistically. The information is displayed on the windshield to ensure effective ergonomics and can be individually adapted. The full-colour BMW Head-Up Display is not fully visible if you are wearing polarized sunglasses. The illumination intensity is automatically modified to suit the external light conditions and the system also features night-time and day-time modes. The brightness setting can be configured via the iDrive menu. You can also select which additional information you wish to have displayed in addition to your current speed and the warnings from the driver assistance systems.

PARKING ASSISTANT.

The Parking assistant makes parallel parking easier. Whether activated or not, the system measures potential spaces while driving past at a low speed (below 35 km/h) and at a maximum distance of 1.5 m from the row of parked cars. When a large enough gap has been found, the driver simply turns on the indicator and the Parking assistant takes over the steering, while the driver continues to operate the accelerator, gears and brakes. The system also gives instructions in the Control Display and additional acoustic signals. So the driver can stay relaxed and enjoy greater safety while parking.

BMW NIGHT VISION.

BMW Night Vision detects people and larger animals at a long distance. A thermal image camera in the radiator grille with a range of up to 300 metres relays images of people and animals directly onto the Control Display. Intelligent early warning system: As soon as the remote infrared detects pedestrians or larger animals on course for collision in the dark, you are given a highly effective warning of a potential risk situation. Additional warnings are provided when the thermal image is activated in the multifunctional instrument display or in the full-colour BMW Head-Up Display. In the event of an acute risk, an acoustic warning signal is also sounded and the brakes are set to maximum standby. BMW Night Vision is a BMW ConnectedDrive innovation.

SURROUND VIEW.

Surround View includes the camera-based functions Top View, Side View and rear view camera. Cameras in the exterior mirrors and a rear view camera provide a 270° view around the vehicle. Top View displays the areas on the side of the car for more convenient manoeuvring. The Side View makes navigating areas with low visibility like exits or confusing intersections safer. Two digital cameras on the left and right of the front of the car capture the traffic situation in front of the vehicle. This enables early detection of oncoming traffic so that the driver can react appropriately. 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 Side View. The camera systems are activated when the car is put into reverse or the PDC button or Side View button is pressed. The image is shown on the Control Display.

NAVIGATION SYSTEM PROFESSIONAL WITH iDRIVE TOUCH.

The Navigation system Professional features a sleek design and a superior range of services: The easy-to-use navigation system is perfectly integrated into the iDrive Controller and Control Display operation concepts. The system comprises the hands-free facility with USB interface and voice control, the radio BMW Professional with DVD drive, as well as a 20 GB memory for audio files. The most popular POIs (points of interest) are listed as a symbol (gas station, hotel, etc.) according to search frequency in the POI menu. A fixed, high-resolution 10.25" colour display with split-screen function guarantees optimal readability and clarity. Its intuitive operation is carried out using the iDrive Touch Controller, whose touch-sensitive surface allows the driver to easily enter destination addresses 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 including satellite images as a map background – with photo-realistic depictions of selected sights – navigation becomes an exciting visual experience.
