BMW NIGHT VISION.

BMW Night Vision detects people and larger animals at a long distance. A thermal image camera in the radiator grille with a range of up to 300 metres relays images of people and animals directly onto the Control Display. Intelligent early warning system: As soon as the remote infrared detects pedestrians or larger animals on course for collision in the dark, you are given a highly effective warning of a potential risk situation. Additional warnings are provided when the thermal image is activated in the multifunctional instrument display or in the full-colour BMW Head-Up Display. In the event of an acute risk, an acoustic warning signal is also sounded and the brakes are set to maximum standby. BMW Night Vision is a BMW ConnectedDrive innovation.

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.

SURROUND VIEW.

Surround View includes the camera-based functions Top View, Side View and rear view camera. Cameras in the exterior mirrors and a rear view camera provide a 270° view around the vehicle. Top View displays the areas on the side of the car for more convenient manoeuvring. The Side View makes navigating areas with low visibility like exits or confusing intersections safer. Two digital cameras on the left and right of the front of the car capture the traffic situation in front of the vehicle. This enables early detection of oncoming traffic so that the driver can react appropriately. The Side View function is automatically deactivated when the car reaches 15 km/h. The driver can then choose to activate the rear view camera, Top View or Side View. The camera systems are activated when the car is put into reverse or the PDC button or Side View button is pressed. The image is shown on the Control Display.

NAVIGATION SYSTEM PROFESSIONAL.

The Navigation system Professional features a sleek design and a superior range of services: The easy-to-use navigation system with iDrive Touch Controller and Control Display includes the Hands-free facility with USB interface and Voice control. Also included: Radio BMW Professional with DVD drive and 20 GB of memory for audio files including a title database. Additionally, online alternative routes can be displayed. The most-used POIs (Points of Interest) such as gas stations, hotels and similar locations are listed in the POI menu as symbols according to search frequency. A fixed, high-resolution 10.2" colour display with split-screen function guarantees optimal readability and clarity.


Its intuitive operation is carried out using the iDrive Touch Controller, whose touch-sensitive surface allows the driver to easily enter destination addresses using their handwriting. Alternatively, the system can also be operated via direct menu control buttons, the eight functional bookmarks or voice control. Thanks to the three-dimensional map display including satellite images as a map background – with photo-realistic depictions of selected sights – navigation becomes a particularly engaging visual experience.

INTELLIGENT VOICE ASSISTANT.

Intelligent Voice Assistant with offboard speech processing offers speech support at the highest level. It understands natural speech, as opposed to only recognizing limited commands. The Voice Assistant not only includes a large scope of individual and situational variations, it also understands linguistic varieties, dialects and jargon. This enables a substantially greater range of possibilities when dictating text messages or emails. The greatly expanded range of functions is possible thanks to the ConnectedDrive server-based offboard voice recognition, which forms the basis for the Intelligent Voice Assistant. This cloud function enables non-specific searches to be conducted quickly and simply on the internet using everyday language, aiding the navigation system. It is possible to search for restaurants in the area by asking in natural language. In addition, the move to the cloud allows more frequent update cycles, guaranteeing that all future innovations are available as soon as possible, whether regarding new software or improvements to computer linguistics.
