BMW ConnectedDrive Services & Apps in the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo.

Communication, information and entertainment – experience mobility in a completely new way with the Services & Apps from BMW ConnectedDrive.[1]

CONNECTED DRIVE SERVICES.

The equipment option ConnectedDrive Services forms the basis for BMW ConnectedDrive functions, which provide the driver with a wide range of information, entertainment and service features while on the road.

These include BMW Online, which provides access to current, location-based information such as weather and news, an online search powered by GoogleTM as well as office functions. This also includes convenient, secure and unlimited access to selected smartphone apps.

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 freeways, highways, 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 road authority 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.
 

CONCIERGE SERVICES.

CONCIERGE SERVICES.

For anyone who has ever wanted to know what it is like to have their own personal concierge, 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 bank ATM 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 around-the-clock, seven days a week.

You can also use the read-aloud function to stay up-to-date with the latest news updates or appointments via the car loudspeakers. The BMW Apps range is continually being developed to provide you with more apps in the future.

BLUETOOTH OFFICE.

A connection for Bluetooth and USB devices in combination with a navigation system and the intelligent integration of selected business mobiles enables office functions such as emails, appointments, tasks or text messages to appear on the Control Display or be heard via text-to-speech through the audio system’s loudspeakers. And with Bluetooth Audio Streaming, music files can be enjoyed cable-free via selected Bluetooth-compatible devices.

You’ll find a list of all compatible mobile phones and smartphones at www.bmw.com/bluetooth.

INTERNET.

INTERNET.

Unrestricted access to the World Wide Web.

The data flatrate for internet use allows you to surf the internet from the comfort of your BMW.
Any internet page can be called up on the Control Display only when the is by entering the URL via the iDrive Controller or opening a customised favourite list. You can surf the internet on the Control Display only when the car is parked.

INTELLIGENT EMERGENCY CALL.

In the event of a serious accident, the Intelligent Emergency Call function triggers an automatic emergency call following airbag activation or accident-related activation of the safety belts.
Via a SIM card integrated in the vehicle, rescue-relevant data, such as the exact position of the vehicle or information on the seriousness of the accident or the possible risk of injury to the occupants, is sent to a BMW Call Centre. The BMW Call Centre then informs the rescue point nearest to the scene of the accident and provides the victims with assistance by telephone until the emergency services have arrived. The emergency call can also be activated manually, e.g. in order to assist other road-users in difficulties.
