REAL TIME TRAFFIC INFORMATION.

Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI) provides you with the most up-to-date traffic information at all times. Precise details of the time and duration of hold-ups are relayed virtually in real time.
The data is drawn from such sources as movement profiles from the mobile phone network, the GPS data of vehicle fleets, smartphone apps and police reports. This data is analysed so precisely that it is possible to localise traffic congestion to the nearest 500 metres. This enables RTTI to provide information in real time on the current traffic situation on motorways, main roads, country roads and numerous urban routes, as well as recommending sound alternative routes.
Only available in conjunction with the optional equipment ConnectedDrive Services.

REMOTE SERVICES.

With Remote Services and the free BMW ConnectedDrive 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.

The intelligent emergency call permits fast, targeted assistance round-the-clock as well as support by trained staff − in your language even if you are abroad.
If a serious accident takes place involving 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. independently of a private mobile phone. The BMW call centre will inform the nearest rescue coordination centre and provide assistance the 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.
