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 Connected App and the BMW M laptimer, but also works closely with partners like Spotify, Napster, GoPro, Deezer and Audible so that those apps can also be used safely inside the car. Simply attach a compatible smartphone to the vehicle via the Snap-in adapter or a smartphone USB cable, or wirelessly. 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. For further information see www.bmw.com/apps.

  • Preparation for Apple CarPlay®

    Thanks to Preparation for Apple CarPlay®, drivers can conveniently use a compatible iPhone® securely and wirelessly while on the go. This allows smartphone content, along with functions such as music, iMessages/text messages, telephony, Siri and selected third-party apps, to be displayed and operated in the regular manner, even via the vehicle's user interface. Preparation for Apple CarPlay can be used via touch input, the iDrive Controller or voice control, depending on the vehicle's equipment.

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.

BMW CONNECTED.

BMW Connected is a personal mobility assistant which facilitates everyday mobility and aids drivers in reaching their destinations relaxed and on time. All relevant services are also remotely available at all times on iPhone und Apple Watch via the app.

Destinations that have been found in the web or via other application such as Yelp, Apple Maps, Google Maps can be easily and conveniently imported into BMW Connected and seamlessly transferred to the vehicles navigation system with just a single click. Meetings, including addresses and intended arrival times, saved in the iPhone calendar are automatically imported into the BMW Connected mobility agenda. Based on current location and traffic conditions, BMW Connect calculates the planned arrival time, alerts users ahead of time and guides them on foot from the parked car to their final destination. If a delay is unavoidable due to unforeseeable traffic obstacles or if no parking space is available in the immediate vicinity of the final destination, users can send a text message via BMW connected to inform the waiting party of the estimated time of arrival, without having to physically use their phone. In addition, BMW Connected learns to recognize frequent destinations and automatically adds them to the mobility agenda.

The BMW Connected App can be downloaded from the Apple App Store.

REMOTE SERVICES.

With the Remote Services of the BMW Connected App (available in the Apple App Store), various vehicle-related functions, such as locking and unlocking the car, can be operated remotely.

Just as the BMW ConnectedDrive customer portal, the app also offers the opportunity to access vehicle information such as range or the status of the windows and doors. That way the driver is always fully informed about the status of the vehicle, even from a distance, and also has all information conveniently gathered together at one glance.

This information package is rounded out with the display of the vehicle’s current location. To use this feature, customers simply need to activate Remote Services once in the BMW ConnectedDrive customer portal at www.bmw-connecteddrive.com.    

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.

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.
