Services & Apps in the BMW M5 Sedan.

Always in touch and always up to date – with the Services & Apps in the BMW M5 Sedan. From in-car Bluetooth Office and internet to web-based mobility and information services.

ConnectedDrive 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.

BMW M Laptimer App.

With the BMW Laptimer app, driving data from the racecourse can be precisely recorded and an analysis can be carried out for improving driving-performance. The recorded information, which falls into categories such as accelerator pedal, steering angle, G-force and best lap time, can be posted as snapshots to Facebook or Twitter, or sent by email.

Dictation function and Bluetooth Office.

With the Navigation System Professional, a Bluetooth connection and BMW ConnectedDrive Services, picking up the phone is no longer necessary. All text can now be entered vocally. The message dictation allows spoken messages to be converted into text, which can then be sent as emails or text messages. The message dictation can also be used to compose Twitter posts with BMW apps. The message dictation is available free of charge for the first 60 days, after which a fee-based contract with Nuance® is required. Bluetooth Office allows you to use time spent in the car more effectively. Via Bluetooth-enabled devices, daily work can be conveniently organised while on the go. The most important office functions of specified 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 securely over the audio speakers.

Concierge Services.

For anyone who has ever wanted to know what it is like to have their own personal butler, here is the chance: with Concierge Services from BMW ConnectedDrive. Concierge Services offers a personal assistant, via the BMW Response Centre, to help find points of interest. Destinations could include; restaurants, shops, hotels, or even a specific address. The agent can also send these destinations directly to the vehicle's navigation system. Concierge Services operates independently of the driver's mobile phone and is available at home and abroad, around the clock, seven days a week. ConnectedDrive Services Professional is required in order to use this function.

Remote Services.

Remote Services enables various functions to be activated, deactivated and controlled from a distance. It is also possible to directly transmit addresses found using the Google™ Local Search. What's more, the car's location can be shown within a radius of 1.5 km. The car can also be locked and unlocked by calling the BMW call centre. Remote Services is only available in conjunction with BMW ConnectedDrive Services Professional.

Advanced Real Time Traffic Information.

Advanced Real Time Traffic Information (ARTTI) provides the most up-to-date traffic information at all times. Precise details of the time and duration of hold-ups are relayed virtually in real time. The data is drawn from such sources as movement profiles from the mobile phone network, the GPS data of vehicle fleets, smartphone apps and police reports. This data is analyzed so precisely that it is possible to localize traffic congestion to the nearest few metres. This enables ARTTI to provide information in real time on the current traffic situation on motorways, main roads, country roads and numerous urban routes. ARTTI is only available in conjunction with ConnectedDrive Services Professional and BMW Navigation System Professional.
