BMW CONNECTED DRIVE SERVICES.

ConnectedDrive Services opens the door to the digital world of BMW. Use in-vehicle apps to stay fully up to date at all times regarding the news and weather. There is also an Office tool and an online search function. ConnectedDrive Services is a basic package that is needed when purchasing other digital services.

  • BMW ConnectedDrive Store

    BMW ConnectedDrive Store at any time and place. These services can be flexibly selected and ordered even after the purchase of the BMW. This allows customers to choose from all the available BMW ConnectedDrive services and apps directly from the car at all times based on their individual needs.
    The services and apps that can be ordered in the BMW ConnectedDrive Store have been specially developed to suit the needs and demands of BMW drivers. The duration of individual services can also be selected. This allows customers to order services for a specified period of time, for example during their holiday.
    The BMW ConnectedDrive Store can be accessed on the go from inside the BMW, or via the My BMW ConnectedDrive online customer portal. The newly ordered services and apps are then accessible in the car shortly after being chosen and purchased. The BMW ConnectedDrive Store provides updated information on the selection of available services and apps at all times.

  • Preparation for Apple CarPlay®

    Why go without the features of your iPhone in your BMW when you can continue operating it as usual? The preparation for Apple CarPlay® gives you remote access to telephony as well as apps like iMessage, WhatsApp, TuneIn, Spotify and Apple Music. You can also use the voice button on the steering wheel to access Siri, Apple’s voice assistant.

BMW CONNECTED.

Connect with your BMW. The BMW Connected app is your digital mobility assistant which takes care of your needs before and during your journey. Access your car using your smartphone, smartwatch or Amazon Echo, send destinations to the navigation system or receive reminders for meetings to make sure you arrive there on time.

BMW M LAPTIMER APP.

With the BMW M laptimer app, driving data from the racetrack can be accurately recorded, bend by bend, and then analysed with the aim of improving driving performance. The app uses BMW sensors to collect detailed data from the vehicle and shows selected results in the Control Display. The system is operated via the iDrive Controller. While it is recording, the BMW M laptimer app shows the GPS position, speed, forward acceleration, lateral acceleration (G-force), lap times and acceleration up to a certain speed (e.g. from 0 to 100 km/h). Depending on the vehicle equipment and model year, factors measured may also include the accelerator position, steering angle, deceleration, rpms and gear, as well as fuel consumption. The recorded information can be shared as a snapshot on social media while the data saved can be sent via email.

CONCIERGE SERVICE.

Will it be sunny tomorrow in Rome? When is my flight and where is the best restaurant in the city? Concierge Services are there to help when you are travelling and can support you with any request at the touch of a button – individual, personal and fast. Wherever you are, whatever you need.
The term is three years.

ONLINE ENTERTAINMENT.

The perfect song for every situation, every road and every mood. Online Entertainment offers direct and unlimited access to more than 22 million music titles inside the BMW – all without a smartphone or other device. There are plenty of tracks here to suit every taste. As soon as an artist's song or album is played in the car, it is automatically downloaded to the car's hard disc. For guaranteed listening enjoyment without any interruptions.
With the Online Entertainment offer, a flat-rate account lasting one year can be opened with any BMW music partner, for example with Napster, which can be used in six different European countries at no additional cost: Germany, France, the UK, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands.

REAL TIME TRAFFIC INFORMATION.

Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI) provides the most up-to-date traffic information at all times. Precise details about the location and duration of delays are transmitted in order to keep the driver informed, practically in real time, about the current traffic situation on motorways, country roads and on many routes within the city. Intelligent alternative route suggestions help the driver reach their destination as quickly and efficiently as possible.

The data are drawn from such sources as anonymous movement profiles from the GPS data of vehicle fleets, smartphone apps and police reports, and also takes into account established traffic patterns such as peak commute times.

The traffic information is clearly presented, with the roads depicted in green, yellow, orange and red. Furthermore, the equipment option Real time Traffic Information also includes On-Street Parking Information for a more specific and efficient search for parking space.

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.

INTELLIGENT EMERGENCY CALL.

The Intelligent Emergency Call guarantees fast, targeted assistance round-the-clock as well as support from trained staff – in the driver's native language, even abroad. If an accident takes place involving the 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. independent 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.
