This option enables a WiFi hotspot using the LTE standard to be set up in the vehicle, in conjunction with a chargeable data tariff. Passengers can then go online with all suitable devices, work on emails, stream music and videos, and much more. The hotspot ensures that there are no obstacles to enjoying a fascinating mobile internet experience with the maximum LTE standard while on the move.
This function is compatible with a huge array of devices, such as BMW Touch Command, laptops, tablets and mobile phones from various manufacturers. Up to eight devices can be connected to the WiFi hotspot at any one time.
Connection is via the SIM card fitted in the vehicle and a chargeable tariff running from the BMW provider, or the data tariff used on the coupled mobile device. If no LTE network is available, the system automatically switches to other available standards. Since the service is connected to the external aerial, there is absolutely no exposure to radiation in the interior of the car.
