FREEDOM IN YOUR BAGS. THE WORLD ON BOARD.

BMW ConnectedDrive Services & Apps in the BMW 4 Series Convertible.

The Services & Apps from BMW ConnectedDrive give you the freedom to do what you really want to while always keeping you connected and up to date. Communicate, navigate and visit your networks on the move -- this is modern-day mobility.

CONNECTED DRIVE SERVICES.

The BMW ConnectedDrive Services option forms the basis for a whole range of intelligent, in-car information and entertainment services. These include BMW Online, which provides access to current, localised information such as weather and news, as well as an online search and office functions. It is also possible to put together individualised services such as webcams, parking information and travel or hotel guides. In addition, this option includes the convenient, secure and unlimited use of smartphone apps like BMW Connected. And that's just the beginning: the BMW ConnectedDrive Services option offers so much more to make driving and travelling in a BMW even more enjoyable.

ONLINE ENTERTAINMENT.

The perfect song for every situation, every road and every mood. Online Entertainment offers direct and unlimited access to more than 18 million music titles – all without a smartphone or other device. There is plenty of music to suit every taste. With Online Entertainment, a flat-rate account can be opened at no extra charge with any of BMW's music partners, for example Napster. This service is available in a total of six European countries: Germany, France, UK, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain.
Only available in conjunction with the optional equipment ConnectedDrive Services and the Navigation system Professional.

BLUETOOTH OFFICE WITH MESSAGE DICTATION.

Bluetooth Office allows you to use the time spent in the car more effectively. The interface for Bluetooth and USB devices allows you to conveniently organise things on the go. Emails, appointments, tasks and text messages are shown on the Control Display or read aloud over the sound system's loudspeakers. A list of all compatible mobile devices is available at www.bmw.com/bluetooth.

  • Message dictation

    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 dictation function allows spoken messages to be converted into text, which can then be sent as emails or text messages. The dictation function can also be used to compose Twitter posts in BMW Apps. The dictation function is available free of charge for the first 60 days. A fee-based contract with Nuance® is then required for ongoing use in the car.
    More information on Bluetooth compatibility with smartphones and other mobile devices is available at www.bmw.com/bluetooth.

INTERNET.

INTERNET.

Unrestricted access to the World Wide Web.

In BMWs equipped with the internet option, websites can be accessed via the Control Display. The URL is entered simply and conveniently using the iDrive Controller or with the bookmark list for fast access. With the data flat rate for internet use, BMW owners can surf the internet directly from their cars nationwide (no roaming). The Control Display can be used to surf the internet while travelling up to a speed of 4 km/h. BMW ConnectedDrive Services is required in order to use this function.

REAL TIME TRAFFIC INFORMATION.

Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI) puts the most up-to-date traffic information at your fingertips whenever you need it. Precise details about the time and duration of delays are relayed nearly in real time. The data is drawn from such sources as movement profilesfrom mobile phone networks, the GPS data of vehicle fleets, smartphone apps and police dispatches. This data is analysed so precisely that it is possible to determine the location of traffic congestion to within a few metres. This enables RTTI to provide information in real time on the current traffic situation on motorways, main roads, country roads and numerous urban routes, as well as recommending efficient alternative routes. RTTI is only available in conjunction with BMW ConnectedDrive Services and BMW Navigation System Professional.

CONCIERGE SERVICES.

If you've always wanted to know what it feels like to have your very own butler, now you can: with the Concierge Service from BMW ConnectedDrive. This convenient service connects you with a BMW call centre agent who acts as your personal assistant while you're on the road. Whether you are looking for a particular restaurant, the nearest cash machine or an open chemist – the BMW call centre agent will find it and send the address details directly to your navigation system upon request. They can even make a reservation at a restaurant or book a hotel room for you. The Concierge Service operates independently of your mobile phone and is available in your country of residence and abroad – around the clock, seven days a week and at no extra cost. The Concierge Service is only available in conjunction with BMW ConnectedDrive Services.

INTELLIGENT EMERGENCY CALL.

The Intelligent Emergency Call permits fast, targeted assistance round-theclock as well as support by trained staff – in your native language even if you are abroad. If a serious accident takes place involving activation of an airbag or the belt tensioners, an Intelligent 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 the rescue services arrive. The emergency call can also be triggered manually, in case other road users require help, for example.

REMOTE SERVICES.

With Remote Services and the free My BMW Remote App (available in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store), various vehicle-related functions, such as locking and unlocking the car, can be operated remotely. It is also possible to directly transmit destination addresses found using the Google™ search engine to a navigation system if one is available. Additionally, the location of the vehicle can also be displayed. To use this feature, customers simply need to activate Remote Services once in the "My BMW ConnectedDrive" customer portal at www.bmw-connecteddrive.com.
