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.

YOUR INSTANT DISTRESS SIGNAL.

YOUR INSTANT DISTRESS SIGNAL.

Intelligent Emergency Call permits fast, targeted assistance in emergency situations round-the-clock as well as support by trained staff – in the driver's native language, even when abroad. If a serious accident takes place involving activation of an air bag or the belt tensioners, an Intelligent Emergency Call is automatically issued. Relevant details for rescue 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 informs the nearest rescue coordination centre and provides assistance the over the phone until the rescue services arrive. The emergency call can also be triggered manually in case others on the road require help, for example.

How the Intelligent Emergency Call works.

BMW TELESERVICES.

Teleservices stands for an intelligent connection between the driver, vehicle and BMW. It independently relays information about the vehicle to BMW as required and issues an alert when it is due for a service. The owner's preferred BMW Service partner can access the data in order to optimally schedule – and prepare for – the next service appointment. For example, they can order any necessary replacement parts well in advance. A BMW Service partner contacts the owner when their car is due for a service. Thanks to Teleservices, some problems can even be resolved remotely without having to take the car in for repair.

CONCIERGE SERVICES.

For anyone who has ever wanted to know what it is like to have their own personal butler, here is a chance: with the Concierge Services from BMW ConnectedDrive. At the touch of a button one is being put through to the BMW Call Centre agents who are available as "personal assistants" for the driver on the road.
Whether looking for a particular restaurant, the nearest cash dispenser or an emergency pharmacy – a BMW Call Centre agent is there to help and can send address details directly to the navigation system on demand. The Concierge Services operate independently of the driver's mobile phone and are available at home and abroad round the clock, seven days a week at no extra cost. Concierge Services is only available in conjunction with ConnectedDrive Services.

So now, whether you’re going to work, on a shopping trip or on holiday, you can compile your own radio station, choose from a wide range of audio books or stream your own music – straight into your BMW with the ConnectedDrive Services equipment option.
