LEAD THE WAY. AND LET THE WORLD FOLLOW.

BMW ConnectedDrive Services & Apps in the BMW M4 Convertible.[1]

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

CONNECTEDDRIVE 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.

BMW M LAPTIMER APP.

With the BMW Laptimer app, driving data from the racecourse can be precisely recorded and an analysis can be carried out for improving driving-performance. The recorded information, which falls into categories such as accelerator pedal, steering angle, G-force and best lap time, can be posted as snapshots to Facebook or Twitter, or sent by email.

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.

ONLINE ENTERTAINMENT.

The perfect song for every situation, every road and every mood. Online Entertainment offers direct and unlimited access in a BMW to more than 22 million music titles – 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.
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 without any additional costs: Germany, France, the UK, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands.
Only available in conjunction with the optional equipment ConnectedDrive Services and the Navigation system Professional.

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.

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 when they're abroad. If an accident takes place involving the activation of an
airbag or the belt tensioners (for example), the system automatically issues an emergency call. 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.

BLUETOOTH OFFICE.

Bluetooth Office allows you to use time spent in the car more effectively. Via Bluetooth-enabled devices, daily work can be conveniently organised while on the go. The most important office functions of specified smartphones, such as e-mails, appointments, tasks or text messages, are shown on the Control Display and can also be read aloud on demand conveniently and securely over the audio speakers. A list of all compatible mobile devices is available at www.bmw.com/bluetooth.

INTERNET.

iDrive Controller.

 

The equipment option Internet gives web access on the car's Control Display. The URL is entered simply and conveniently using the iDrive Controller or using the bookmark list for fast access. One can surf the internet directly from your BMW. The Control Display can be used for web surfing up while parked.
