BMW Online makes you more mobile than ever before, keeping you up to date and in touch, thanks to internet-based mobility and information services that you can access directly from your cockpit. BMW Online is your helpful co-pilot, providing you with the information you need when you are on the road.
The secret behind the convenience and intuitive effectiveness of BMW Online is its ability to offer location-based services. Using GPS technology and the SIM card integrated into the navigation system Business or Professional, BMW Online recognises your vehicle's current location and can provide you with relevant information along your route. Even before you start your journey, you know what sort of weather awaits you at your destination. Finding a nearby parking space becomes simple. News items and stock market updates are instantly available and you can find addresses of restaurants and other businesses with Google™ local search.
BMW Online also offers email and address features: access your address book and your own email account directly from the driver's seat. With the in-built Telematics Control Unit (TCU) with its own SIM card the use of BMW Online services is free of charge for up to 3 years.
BMW Online is controlled via the intuitive BMW iDrive system. The desired content is displayed in a browser or on the Control Display. The text-to-speech function makes it possible to enjoy online services on the move.
BMW Online is a technology from BMW ConnectedDrive and part of the special equipment ConnectedDrive Services.
