Communication, information and entertainment – experience an entirely new form of mobility with the Service & Apps from BMW ConnectedDrive.
Intelligent Emergency Call.
The Intelligent Emergency Call automatically establishes a connection with the nearest rescue coordination centre through the BMW Call Centre whenever needed – without the use of a mobile phone. It transmits information regarding the vehicle’s current location and the severity of the accident. The Intelligent Emergency Call can also be triggered manually in case other road users require help, for example.
The internet option provides access to the web on the car’s high-resolution Control Display. So the driver can use the internet just like on their computer at home with full UMTS speed. The URL is entered simply and conveniently using the iDrive Controller or selected from the bookmark list for fast access. With the data flat rate for internet use, users can surf the web directly from the car nationwide (no roaming). The websites are shown on the Control Display. In vehicles with rear-seat entertainment Professional, passengers in the rear can also use the internet via flat screens integrated into the front seats.
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.
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.
For anyone who has ever wanted to know what it is like to have their own personal butler, here is the chance: with the Concierge Service from BMW ConnectedDrive. At the push of a button the driver is connected with a BMW Call Centre agent who acts as their “personal assistant” on the road. Whether a particular restaurant, the nearest cash dispenser or an emergency pharmacy – the BMW Call Centre agent is there to help and can even send information directly to the navigation system. The Concierge Service operates independently of the driver’s mobile phone and is available in their home country and abroad, around-the-clock, seven days a week and at no extra cost.
