DELEGATE TO RELIABLE HELPERS.

BMW ConnectedDrive Driver Assistance systems in the BMW M3 Sedan.

Numerous innovative technologies support you in various ways and guarantee the highest level of comfort and safety. So you can focus on one of the important things in life – carefree driving pleasure.  

BMW HEAD-UP DISPLAY WITH M-SPECIFIC DISPLAY.

The full-colour BMW Head-Up Display with M-specific display projects information relevant to driving directly into the driver's field of vision. With the press of a button, the driver can switch to the sportier M-specific display. Along with a digital speedometer, it also shows the selected gear and a multi-coloured rpm symbol including shift lights. Navigation instructions, Speed Limit Info and infotainment tips are also shown. Projections at eye-height mean that the driver can keep his or her gaze on the road. Improved safety and a unique driving experience are the result.

DRIVING ASSISTANT.

The feature Driving Assistant combines the camera-based systems Lane Departure Warning and Approach and Pedestrian Warning with the City Brake Activation. The Lane Departure Warning detects lane markings and alerts the driver to an unintentional lane change at speeds above approx. 70 km/h by means of vibrations in the steering wheel and a visual warning in the instrument cluster. The warning is not activated when the lane change is deliberate, i.e. when the indicator is turned on. While 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 – 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.

SPEED LIMIT INFO.

Safety first: Speed Limit Info shows the current speed limit in the instrument cluster. This is shown on the Info Display in the instrument cluster or in the Head-Up Display. A special camera detects the relevant traffic signs. This information is processed by a control unit along with data from the navigation system. This means the driver will always be well informed about the road ahead.

iDrive Touch Controller.

iDrive Touch Controller.

Convenient operation with a single hand.

The iDrive Touch Controller (part of standard Navigation System Professional) enables the iDrive system to be conveniently operated with a single hand. Thanks to the touchpad integrated into the Controller, it is easy to enter such information as destinations for the navigation system in handwriting. It can also be used to access a wide range of functions and settings as well as for scrolling through lists. Operation is effortless and intuitive based on one's sense of touch. This makes life especially easy for the driver since it keeps distraction from traffic to an absolute minimum. All functions operated using the Controller can be conveniently viewed in the Control Display.

PARK ASSISTANT.

The Park 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 turns on the indicator and the Park Assistant takes over the steering, while the driver is responsible for selecting the correct gear, as well as pressing the accelerator 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.

CAMERA SYSTEMS.

Park Distance Control, Surround View, Rear View Camera: Enjoy a clear view in the area around your vehicle when manoeuvring into parking spaces and at road exits. Park Distance Control (PDC) at the front and rear allows you to park safely and comfortably thanks to optical and acoustic signals. Surround View shows your vehicle in the Control Display with the aid of a projection from above. The accompanying Side View system guarantees a better overview when visibility is poor at road exits. The Rear View Camera provides welcome support when you are reversing into parking spaces at speeds of less than 20 km/h.
