SMART CONNECTIVITY IS ALL ABOUT
KEEPING YOU ON TRACK.

CONNECTED MOBILITY IN THE BMW i3.
 

A fully sustainable system requires a fully comprehensive network: with an integrated SIM card, the BMW i3 has full connectivity, allowing the use of BMW i ConnectedDrive services. To make sure you never run out of power, the mobility service ChargeNow offers the world’s largest network of public charging stations.

CONNECTED NAVIGATION.
 

Simply open the dynamic range map in the optional navigation system for a clear overview of your current range. If the remaining battery charge is not sufficient, the system will suggest other ways of reaching your destination and show unoccupied charging stations on the navigation screen. In cities, one particularly useful feature is intermodal routing. This can help save precious time in heavy traffic by recommending alternative means of transport and guiding you to Park & Ride facilities.

To further sustainability, we’ve matched the car’s navigation system to the demands of electric driving. With the navigation system the dynamic range map highlights destinations within reach. The system takes account of the remaining battery charge, your personal driving behaviour, the topography of your surroundings and Real Time Traffic Information, making it highly accurate.

If the battery is not sufficiently charged, the range assistant will suggest up to three other ways to reach your destination. One way could be simply switching to a more efficient driving mode. The system also shows you unoccupied charging stations where you can top up your BMW i3.

BMW i Remote App

BMW i REMOTE APP.

 

With the BMW i Remote App you can keep an eye on your BMW i3 whenever you want via smartphone or smartwatch, checking the battery charge and the electric driving range. If your BMW i3 is connected to a charging station, you can track the charging processes remotely. This helps you time your departure to ensure that your BMW i3 is fully charged and preconditioned. And if you wish, the app will also rate the efficiency of your driving.
