BMW ConnectedDrive Services and Apps.

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

ConnectedDrive Services.

Fitted as standard to all BMW M Series models, BMW ConnectedDrive Services provides an exceptional range of information, entertainment and services at your fingertips. These include BMW Online, which gives you access to current, localised information such as weather, news, online search and a whole range of other functions.

Real Time Traffic Information.

Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI) provides you with the most up-to-date, highly-detailed traffic information at all times. Precise details about the time and duration of hold-ups are relayed to provide almost instantaneous traffic information about motorways, country roads and main roads, as well as numerous urban routes.

Data is drawn from the mobile phone network, the GPS data of vehicle fleets, smartphone apps and police reports. It’s then analysed so precisely that it’s possible to localise traffic congestion to the nearest 500 metres.

Online Entertainment.

For every road, for every mood, for every moment, BMW Online Entertainment gives you the perfect soundtrack for your driving life.

With unlimited access to over 12 million music tracks this is a feature guaranteed to set your pulse racing.
With the Online A flat-rate account lasting one year can be opened with any BMW music partner, for example with Napster that can be used in the UK, Germany, France, Italy and the Netherlands without any additional costs.

BMW Emergency Call.

In the event of an accident, your vehicle will automatically send an emergency call. This direct link to the 999 emergency services works independently of your mobile phone.

In the case of a more serious accident, crash sensors in your vehicle will automatically trigger an emergency call, allowing an agent to establish contact with the vehicle. Vehicle details and GPS data are also transferred, pinpointing its precise location.

All M models come with Emergency Call as standard

BMW M Laptimer app.

Become the ultimate driver with the BMW M laptime app. Experience how direct from the track, driving data is accurately recorded, bend by bend, and then analysed to help you improving driving performance.

The app collects precise data from BMW sensors and shows selected values in the Control Display. The app shows your GPS position, speed, forward acceleration, lateral acceleration (G-force), lap times and acceleration up to a certain speed (e.g. from 0 to 62 mph).

The recorded data can then be posted as a snapshot to social networks, or saved and sent via email.

Bluetooth Office.

Bluetooth Office allows you to stay in control of your world while at the wheel. With emails, dates, tasks and text messages being shown on the Control Display or read aloud over the audio speakers, the Bluetooth Office gives you the power to organise your life while on the move.
