Functions available through the BMW Connected app are updated on a regular basis, and, of course, you can use apps certified by BMW in the future via BMW ConnectedDrive in the vehicle. Get ready for the next generation of mobile communication and mobile entertainment: with your iPhone and BMW ConnectedDrive.

BMW Apps is compatible with iPhone GS3/4 and iPod Touch (with an active Wi-Fi connection) devices and requires the optional equipment “Apps”.

Emergency call function with location recognition in the BMW 3 Series Sedan.

In the case of an accident, help is now on hand quicker than ever before. As soon as the crash sensors on the vehicle are activated, you are automatically connected to the BMW Call Centre. The position of your vehicle as well as the data collected by the crash sensors (e.g. air bag activation or passenger occupancy) is evaluated and passed on. This ensures that the rescue services are fully informed as to the type of accident and are prepared when they arrive on the scene. If you witness an accident without being involved yourself, you can of course activate the emergency call manually.
