BMW i ConnectedDrive Services.

BMW i means more than just electric driving. This is because BMW i completely redefines electric vehicles, mobility services and sustainability: Thanks to the BMW i ConnectedDrive services specially developed for BMW i, electromobility is not only emission-free but also simple, convenient and intelligent.


With the BMW i Remote App you can control your BMW i from afar and retrieve the current status of your vehicle. The app clearly shows you information such as the location of the vehicle, the range, the battery level and service messages or informs you about unlocked doors and lights that have been left on. If your BMW i is connected to the charging station, the charging process can be initiated remotely using the weekly timer and the air conditioning activated by remote control before setting off on a trip. This allows both the battery and interior to be prepared for the trip by being set to the optimum temperature. The dynamic range map is also integrated in the BMW i Remote App. The map function shows you points of interest together with vacant and occupied charging stations and sends them directly to your vehicle. You can also see charging stations offered through the 360° ELECTRIC product ChargeNow. In addition, the app gives helpful tips on how to drive the car more efficiently and how the range can be extended. The efficiency value of each journey can be anonymously shared with others and compared, if needed.

  • BMW i Remote App for Samsung Gear

    The Samsung Gear S Smartwatch now offers an additional means of accessing the functions of the BMW i Remote App. The watch is a clever complement to the connected smartphone and offers you many relevant status details. Examples include the electrical range, the battery status or information on any doors and windows that are open, as well as a large number of practical remote functions and alternative routes – all of which are located directly on your wrist.


BMW i ConnectedDrive services for navigation offer you all the information to make electric driving easier and more convenient. At the centre of these services is the range assistant with dynamic range map, which takes account of key factors such as the charge level of the battery, your driving style, topography and also the current traffic conditions. If the assistant detects that one of these factors will prevent you from reaching your destination, it uses ECO ROUTE to recommend alternative routes that consume less power or switching to the efficient ECO PRO+ driving mode. The nearest available charging station is displayed at all times.
