INTELLIGENT ON-ROAD COMPANIONS.

BMW ConnectedDrive Driver Assistance systems in the BMW X series.

Wherever you’re going, the BMW X Series will help you get there with a broad range of on-board innovative technologies. These will support you in a variety of ways, delivering convenience, comfort and safety. All of which leaves you to enjoy the most important things – the car in your hands, the road ahead.

Drive Assist.
 

The Driving Assistant equipment includes camera-based driver assistance systems, such as Lane Departure Warning, Approach control warning, High-beam assistant and Speed Limit Info. The Approach control warning and Person warning with light city braking function warns of collisions at speeds between 10 and 60 km/h, while the Lane Departure Warning causes the steering wheel to vibrate when the lane is unintentionally changed at 70 km/h or over.

The Lane Departure Warning detects lane markings and alerts the driver to an unintentional lane change at speeds above approx. 70 km/h by means of vibrations in the steering wheel. The warning is not activated if the lane change is deliberate, that is, when the turn indicator has been activated.

The Approach Warning with City Brake Activation detects vehicles in front when they get too close. When there’s a risk of collision, the Approach Warning triggers a two-stage warning – a symbol in the instrument cluster lights up, then there’s an audible warning.

The Pedestrian Warning operates at speeds between 10 and 60 km/h and emits a single-level warning in the event of acute danger. If the system warns of a potential collision, the brakes are simultaneously preconditioned for a faster response. In the event of an emergency, the system applies the brakes. This function can be limited by darkness and fog.

The Driving Assistant Plus feature (only available with Steptronic transmission) includes not only Approach Warning and Lane Departure Warning , but also Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go function. This provides assistance when driving on motorways in both critical and stable traffic situations.


This option is only available in conjunction with the Navigation system Business or Professional.


The Approach Warning responds in stages. Depending on whether a vehicle ahead brakes suddenly or a stationary object is detected, the reaction ranges from a visual signal to active braking and even a complete standstill. Should the car begin to change lanes unintentionally, the Lane Departure Warning quickly provides a warning by means of vibrations in the steering wheel.


The Active Cruise Control maintains a constant selected speed between 30 km/h and 210 km/h or automatically adjusts to conform with the cars driving in front if the distance control is activated. The Stop&Go function even controls speed down to a standstill, accelerating again easily when the gas pedal is pressed, for example in dense moving traffic.

BMW X6 Head-up Display

Head-up Display.

 

The full-colour BMW Head-Up Display projects information relevant to the journey directly into the driver's field of vision, thereby allowing them to fully concentrate on driving. The display includes information such as the current speed, navigation directions, Speed Limit Info incl. no-overtaking indicator, along with telephone and entertainment lists.

Navigation System PROFESSIONAL.

 

The system comprises the hands-free facility with USB interface and voice control, radio BMW Professional with DVD drive, as well as 20 GB of memory for audio files. It also facilitates the use of Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI). The built-in LCD colour display with split screen function (main and supplementary screen) is designed for optimal readability and clarity.


Map updates are available at BMW dealerships for three years without license fees. Within the framework of BMW ConnectedDrive , in selected European countries the system automatically updates the maps for three years up to four times per year.

The iDrive Touch Controller (part of navigation system Professional) enables intuitive and convenient operation of the iDrive system. The touchpad integrated into the Controller enables the user to easily enter destinations into the navigation system by writing them by hand. The entry appears in the Control Display.

Camera Systems.

 

Thanks to the optional camera systems, every parking space becomes a pleasure. This is because with Surround View and the Rear view camera you always have the area around the vehicle fully in view. In addition, Park Distance Control (PDC) at the front and rear gives optical and acoustic signals so that you can park safely and comfortably.

The Rear view camera enables improved orientation when reversing at speeds below 15 km/h, for example when parking. It shows the area behind the car on the Control Display. Interactive track lines for measuring distance and turning circles assist the driver when manoeuvring, obstacles are marked in colour.

The Surround View system makes provides a 360° panorama view around the vehicle with help from cameras in the exterior mirrors, a wide-angle camera in front and the Rear View camera. The system assists the driver during parking or manoeuvring in tight situations or when navigating in areas with limited visibility.


Surround View includes the Rear View camera with Top View and Side View. Top View displays the areas on the side of the car for more convenient manoeuvring. Side View's wide-angle camera between the double kidney grilles on the front and the Rear View camera allow for a panorama view of the front and back of the vehicle. The Cross Traffic Assistant assists the driver by first displaying yellow beams on the side edges of the image as well as a yellow warning triangle in the presence of crossing traffic. The Side View function is automatically deactivated when the car reaches 15 km/h.


The driver can then choose to activate the Rear View camera, Top View or Panorama View. The system is activated when the car is put into reverse or at other predetermined activation points. The image is shown on the Control Display.

 BMW X6 Park Assist

Parking Assistant.
 

The Parking assistant makes parking parallel to the road easier. Whether activated or not, the system measures potential spaces while driving past at a low speed (below 35 km/h) and at a maximum distance of 1.5 m from the row of parked cars. When a large enough gap has been found, the driver simply turns on the indicator and the Parking assistant takes over the steering, while the driver continues to operate the accelerator, gears and brakes. The system also gives instructions in the Control Display and additional acoustic signals. This way the driver can stay relaxed and enjoy greater safety while parking.

BMW SELECTIVE BEAM.

 

With BMW Selective Beam night driving is safer and more comfortable. It provides excellent visibility in the dark without dazzling other drivers.
BMW Selective Beam detects other road-users and selectively excludes them from the high-beam headlight distribution. Beam ranges of over 400 m ensure early detection of risks and improved directional tracking.
